In a seemingly Utopian world where population control is a priority, citizens play the lottery at local ATM machines. The more they withdraw from the public account, the more chances they have to win...
A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
Quinn Mallory, while working on an anti-gravity machine, accidentally creates a portal to a parallel universe. Eventually, his friends and an unwilling participant accidentally get stuck traveling among parallel worlds, trying to survive, and learning that sliding can lead to fatal results. Meanwhile, among many changes in their group, they try to rescue the multiverse from the Kromagg Dynasty. Written by
Even though the production of the show went on continuously between seasons three and four, it had a year hiatus from airing when it was dropped by FOX, and picked up by Syfy, making the airing years (1995-1997, 1998-2000). The visual effects in the fourth season take a very noticeable dive in quality, as the series had just been cancelled by FOX before being resurrected by the Syfy Channel, which left the show with an overall lower production budget.

The professor frequently calls people a "blistering idiot". The phrase should be "blithering idiot", in order words, someone who speaks nonsense. Of course, this could just be a character mistake. See more »
Sliders was a great, fun show and it had the best fans in the entire world. And what a cast! Sabrina Lloyd, Kari Wuhrer, Jerry O'Connell, John Rhys-Davies, that other guy, what an amazing bunch of people and I'm so happy I got to meet them all in person. I sure wish they would have brought it back for just one more season or even just did a Sliders movie to wrap up the story lines. Did Rembrandt Brown live? Did Rembrandt Brown die? Did the Kromaggs get what was coming to them? Did Earth Prime ever get free of their clutches? I think it's sad that it ended in a cliffhanger but hopefully someday the show will come back in some form and answer those lingering questions. Until then, just make sure you "Cry Like a Man", ha ha!
