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 »
SciFi has spent this week running episodes of Sliders from the early seasons, and man, did I forget how good they were.
The early episodes of the show, particularly the pilot, were fantastic-- the alternate worlds were well thought out, and I'd think about the plausibility of them as I lay in bed at night before drifting off to sleep.
Too bad they had to dumb it down and start ripping off movie plots in later seasons. I mourned the loss of John Rhys-Davies, his character was great. And to replace him with boobs-on-patrol Kari Wuhrer was pathetic. It was a completely obvious attempt to boost ratings by grabbing the eyeballs of the geek-horndog set that also lusted after Scully and Seven of Nine and religiously watched their respective shows.
To sum up, don't waste your time watching any episodes from the later seasons.
