Sliders on DVD


For four thrilling seasons, they’ve explored alternate realities beyond anyone’s imaginations. They’ve seen double versions of their hometown, their families, and themselves. But nothing will prepare the Sliders for what lies ahead in all 18 episodes from the fifth and final season of this phenomenally popular sci-fi series. Starring Cleavant Derricks, Kari Wuhrer, Robert Floyd and Tembi Locke, it’s the last chance for the Sliders to answer the question that has haunted them from the beginning: will they ever reach home?

Slide into an out-of-this-world adventure as all 22 thrilling Season 4 episodes of Sliders land on DVD for the first time ever! Reunite with genius Quinn Mallory (Jerry O’Connell) and his fellow Sliders — Rembrandt (Cleavant Derricks), Captain Maggie Beckett (Kari Wuhrer), and Quinn’s brother Colin (Charlie O’Connell) — as they jump in and out of alternate Earthly realms, battle the ruthless Kromaggs, deal with their tricky doubles, search for their mysterious birth parents, and try to land on the elusive Earth Prime.

On July 19, 2005, Universal Home Video released the Third Season DVD box set. In addition to the complete series, the set came with a few bonus features such as a truncated gag reel and episodes of other Universal series — “Earth 2” and “Cleopatra 2525.”

While we can appreciate any publicity the show gets — and the Season Three DVD Set was released the following week — the sampler is a bit of a mixed bag. Pairing Sliders with Cleopatra 2525 and Earth 2, two shows that couldn’t be less mind-blowing or jaw-dropping if they tried?

On August 3, 2004, Universal Home Video released the Dual Dimension Edition DVD box set, featuring the first two seasons of the show. In addition to the episodes, the set came with a few bonus features such as Pilot commentary with Tracy Tormé and Robert K Weiss, a featurette about the show and a photo gallery.
