The final season includes two notable actors from Babylon 5 (1994), which ended its run about a year before 'Sliders (1995)'. The recurring character of Dr. Oberon Geiger is portrayed by Peter Jurasik, who was, under heavy makeup, Londo Mollari in B5. Then in 'Strangers and Comrades', Jerry Doyle portrays Sgt. Vernon Larson. Doyle, of course, was Security Chief Michael Garibaldi through most of the run of B5. See more »
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 »

I think most people familiar with the show would say that it started off as a really original and interesting show. The 'what if" concept really worked for it. But as time went on, the show became something worse than repetitive. It abandoned the original premise of the show. They stopped being mainly concerned with getting home and started being more concerned with these Kromag things. That's about where the original cast started to fall away one by one. They still show re-runs on the sci-fi channel, and I catch the early ones when I can. That's when the show was enjoyable. In the last half of the shows six seasons, it was unwatchable.
