Quotes

Wade Welles: You mean that we can just like... slide through this and boom, we're on another planet?

Sliders is the BEST
7 February 2002 | by (Vancouver BC) – See all my reviews

I loved sliders. How much? Put it this way, give me the first 2 or 3 seasons, and 3 words can answer that. 88 - HOUR - MARATHON. I have been hooked right from the start, and it really ticked me when they canceled it after the first year, and then moved it out of Vancouver.
