    You might say that Sliders was my first TV Series that I followed.

    The first 2 season were fantastic ! But then came season 3 around, it was alright the first part of the season, the second part was awful. Season 4 was nothing better !

    Season 5 however, I always felt that was closer to the second season. Those were interesting stories, not as good at the first 2 seasons, but it was pretty decent.

    Still, I will collect all seasons on DVD. So here's hoping something more will come out.

    I enjoyed Sliders immensely, I believe it was the first sci fi show ever that I was interested in. I remember watching the first three seasons and about half of season four. I was devastated when they killed off the Professor, I remember it was the first TV show I ever cried over. Considering Sliders ran in the early nineties when I was just getting into highschool I can see why. I watched some of season 5 as well but after they started into the whole Cro mag crap and then the double Quinns and especially after Jerry O'Connell left the show, I just wasn't into it anymore. I adore Jerry O'Connell, I love his character Woody on Crossing Jordan and I remember I was quite delighted when I stumbled across the show about a year ago and saw that he was a recurring character on the show. I like the show itself, but I know my viewing is enhanced by my enjoying Jerry O'Connell as an actor.

    I have bought the first three seasons on DVD, because IMO those are the best episodes of the show and some of the best Sci Fi television period. But the show could have gone so much better if they just ended it in season 4 and had them go home. The show had a good run and a good idea but you can only beat a dead horse for so long. Taking it off of Fox was also a major mistake and of course the creator leaving the show doesn't help either. I didn't know some of the reasons why the various actors, like Sabrina Lloyd and John Rhys Davies left the show until I read this thread. I just didn't know about any of the background stuff, now I want to go listen to the commentarys on the DVD's and hear about them pratting on about Stargate stealing their wormhole. They aren't even remotely the same graphic effect and I am sure Bruce Wooloshyn at Rainmaker would be insulted to hear that.

    From my user name it's obvious that I'm a fan of Sliders.

    Great concept and show for the first couple of seasons and some of season 3 but it really just tanked so quickly all the sudden when they just end up trying to remake bad movies instead of more interesting new episodes.

    When SciFi picked up the show for season 4 and 5 (which I didn't get the chance to see until much later), it was really quite a different show with a different purpose than the original finding a way home thing.

    People should try to catch the season 1 and 2 episodes (they were both short seasons so there are only about 24) when SciFi do another marathon at some point.
    I just love shows about wormholes!

    I posted to another thread that a take-off on the Sliders Kromag arc would make for a great Stargate spin-off series. Here is the link:

    That's exactly what i thought, if those guys have accually watched Stargate they'd no it's completly different from theirs. I don't know when the dvd's were released but it has to be right around when the series ended in 2000 cause the comment on the fans that kept it on the air after it was canceled. Another thing they comented on was old Garwin Stanford(aka Narim) who was in the pilot and after that he appered in other TV shows like SG-1. So i geuss that's ONE thing they're allowed ta brag about.

    As for Jerry O'Connel on Crossing Jordan i don't watch the show but i've seen him on it. I have watched the show Numbers and i heard that Sabrina Lloyd is on it, however i haven't seen her in any episodes. Does anyone know if somethin happened to her character in the first season?

    Isn't the Stargate series wormhole effect practically the same as the Stargate Movie wormhole? The movie was made in 1994 one year before Sliders started.

    I liked the first season and some aspects of the "CroMagg" story arc.

    I loved Sabrina Lloyd. What a spunky, hot thing she is.

    Yet another reason which proves the producers of Sliders are seriously doped up on somethin. I think i wanna ask Bruce from Rainmaker what he thinks about that at the next convention.

    I loved sliders as a kid, and have seen the first 2 seasons, and bits and peices of 3+4 i think. It was a great show, with good actors. Its a pity they stuffed it up in the later seasons, and blamed the cast replacements on making the show more sexy for a teenage audience.

    Default Sliders

    So I started watching some old episodes of Sliders lately. I thought was kind of neat when I realized a young Gary Jones appeared in a few episodes....and then I got to episode 7 and what do I see but a Prior of the Ori talking to Professor Arturo. Kind of weird.


    Yeah, I know this is probably not worthy of posting, but it's 12:30 am so what the hey...

    Default Sliders on dvd?

    Does anyone know if they will ever release the 4th or 5th seasons of Sliders on dvd? I've searched the internet many times and can never find anything about it.

    Never saw how the story ended. I didn't have Sci-fi back then.

    Oh god, it ended when the Professor died.

    It has one of the worst endings ever and season 5 is horrible. Hell horrible is too nice of a thing to say.

    I agree, Season 5 was trash but Season 4 wasn't too bad.

    That's what I heard but I figured I'd give it a chance. As long as the dvd's come at a cheap price.
