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.

The device used to activate the wormholes to enable sliding is an old modified Motorola cellphone, the MicroTAC. The new device acquired to slide in season three appears to be a common television remote control. The device used for sliding in "Exodus" parts I and II is a modified Sega Genesis controller.

When the vortex is created (to enter) it is often shown sucking things into it (usually for plot purposes) yet it is also often shown blowing their hair, debris, etc. away before they jump/slide. 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!
