Trivia

In the dinner scene at the end the characters propose several ideas that would become episodes throughout the series. Arturo says that Einstein regretted giving the world the atom bomb, they would enter a world where he did in fact not give the world the bomb in Sliders: Last Days (1995). Rembrandt says he might still be singing out there and would visit a world where he became so famous he faked his death and became an Elvis like figure in Sliders: The King Is Back (1995).

Goofs

When Quinn, Wade and Arturo are looking off their porch at Rembrandt in the street, the San Francisco Bay Bridge and Yerba Buena Island and the San Francisco skyline are visible in the distance. But they're supposed to be in San Francisco at that moment. Such a view as shown is only visible in Oakland. See more »

fantastic show, wish it was back on
3 April 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This intruiging sci-fi TV show, "Sliders" is something to look out for. The characters are interesting and well-written and the plot is engaging. I have seen most of the episodes and I must say it remains to be one of my favourite TV shows. Pity the TV networks keep taking it off and putting it back on. 10/10
