Trivia

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, appeared to be a common television remote control. The device used for sliding in "Exodus" parts I and II was a modified Sega Genesis controller.

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 »

User Reviews

One of the best sci-fi shows of all time
18 January 2003 | by green_queen_jpSee all my reviews

For the first three years of Sliders, this show was an intelligent, original and fascinating example of perfect scifi TV. The acting was mostly above average, but the character dynamics of this odd group (a whiz kid, his wannabe girlfriend, his college professor and a washed-up singer who got into sliding by accident) and the writing were what really made the show. Unfortunately, the show began to go downhill when the original cast was shaken up with the departure of the formidable John Rhys-Davies as the Professor, and jumped the shark completely when it lost Sabrina Lloyd as Wade. I'm sure many salivating teen males would disagree with me on the pointlessness of Kari Wuhrer, but it's clear to me that she added nothing but cleavage to the show.

A show with great potential that should have continued for years.
