network execs drop the ball. (what else is new!)
22 January 2004 | by (Virgina) – See all my reviews

Sliders was infact one of the best shows that spawned during the peak of sci-fi shows, but due to lack of good management and poor planning on the networks, it has been cancelled for some time now, also due the fact that some of the actors wanted to be bigger than the show. By changing the main caracter quinn, "Jerry O'connell" and then continuing the series, then after market rating drops they decided to change the whole cast? If you are having sucessfull season after season you DON'T change the whole cast. I think a 12 year old with a crayon box could have planned it better.
