Did You Know?


Clinton Derricks-Carroll, the identical twin brother of Cleavant Derricks, played his character Rembrandt's alter ego in Sliders: The King Is Back (1995), Sliders: Greatfellas (1996), and Sliders: The Prince of Slides (1996). In their two second-season appearances together, more makeup was used to cause virtually no audience member to be able to tell them apart. Both times, Clevant and Clinton actually swapped roles during the final scenes, and no one was aware that Clinton was the one playing the Rembrandt who slid with the other main characters.

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 »

User Reviews

One of the best sci-fi shows of all time
18 January 2003 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

For the first three years of Sliders, this show was an intelligent, original and fascinating example of perfect scifi TV. The acting was mostly above average, but the character dynamics of this odd group (a whiz kid, his wannabe girlfriend, his college professor and a washed-up singer who got into sliding by accident) and the writing were what really made the show. Unfortunately, the show began to go downhill when the original cast was shaken up with the departure of the formidable John Rhys-Davies as the Professor, and jumped the shark completely when it lost Sabrina Lloyd as Wade. I'm sure many salivating teen males would disagree with me on the pointlessness of Kari Wuhrer, but it's clear to me that she added nothing but cleavage to the show.

A show with great potential that should have continued for years.
