Trivia

Even though the production of the show went on continuously between season 3 and season 4, it had a year hiatus from airing when it was dropped by Fox and picked up by Sci-Fi, making the airing years (1995-1997, 1998-2000). The special effects in the fourth season take a very noticeable dive in quality, as the series had just been canceled by Fox before being resurrected by the Sci-Fi Channel, which left the show with an overall lower production budget.

Goofs

In season one "The King is back" Rembrandt is on stage when the other Rembrandt joins him there, telling the audience that "our" Rembrandt is only an impersonator. Therefore Rembrandt leaves the stage and is welcomed by his friends backstage. The next shot is showing the stage from the front again and there you can still see "our" Rembrandt in the background, still on stage. See more »

Quotes

Rembrandt 'Crying Man' Brown: [season five opening monologue] What if you found a portal to a parallel universe? What if you could Slide into a thousand different worlds? Where it's the same year, and you're the same person, buy everything else is different. And what if you can't find your way home?

There Will Never Be Another Show As Good As Sliders....
16 July 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sliders. I Remember watching The Pilot episode on the first night this brilliant television series debuted on FOX on March 22, 1995. I watched it to the end and I wanted more. I couldn;t wait until the next episode. The possibilities of the show were awesome. Four people from our earth couldn't get back home and they had to "slide" from world to world to get home. I loved how they had a timing device to slide with. Every aspect of the show was amazing.

I loved the first season the best. The season finale cliffhanger got me really excited when a fifth slider came along with our sliders, it never happened before, and not only that but Quinn was shot, was he dead or alive? I thought Id never find out because Sliders was cancelled. That p***ed me off really bad. I loved that show....but it came back a year later....

I watched season 2...and it didnt quite match season 1 but I still loved every episode. I loved the episode "post Traumatic Slide Syndrome" because the SLiders thougth they finally made it home and at the end of the episode we didn;t know which of the two professors slid, leaving us wondering if the real one was left behind. Another real interesting episode was "Gillian of the Spirits" "Love Gids", and "El Sid" were pretty good. "Invasions" wasn't that bad either, we learned that the Kromagg species put a tracking device in one of the sliders. Good Season finale, well actually should have been a season finale rather than the episode they aired after it for the finale...

Season 3 began and it seemed okay....actually the beginning of season 3 was pretty much just like season 1. Rules of the game,Dead man sliding, electric twister acid test, double cross, and especially The Guardian were great episodes. It was after those episodes that Sliders changed a great deal. Instead of alternate realities based stories with alternate histories, we had crazy fantasy and action stories. Sliders was different from then on. Three of the original cast mates were taken off the show and the show jumped networks, the budget got decreased, the show moved to LA....

But being a true fan that I am, I enjoyed every episode....some season 4 episodes had their moments, like "Wrold Kill", "Way Out West", "Slidecage" and others were great.

Although the show is done, they should have done one thing before the last episode was completely finished. Get poor Rembrant back home.
