Trivia

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 make-up 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.

Goofs

The professor frequently calls people a "blistering idiot". The phrase should be "blithering idiot", in order words, someone who speaks nonsense. Of course, this could just be a character mistake. See more »

Prof. Maximillian P. Arturo: That scoundrel! That intellectually impoverished knave wanted me to win his Nobel for him. As you can see, I told him nothing!

User Reviews

A classic
24 July 2002 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

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.
