There is no right or wrong— there is only fun or boring. HACK THE PLANET.
Somewhere, there is another world where Sliders is not a tonedeaf "boy's club." This, however, is not that world.
Again, casual sexism.
The show, seemingly accidentally, stumbled upon its thesis, four years too late.
Three-quarters drivel, one-quarter terror.
Rembrandt grows up.
Despite all their rage, they're still just rats in an interdimensional cage.
Memory Cheats, they say. Well, I never said that. Someone did. Oh God, was that a Ghost? It was? Tight.
Or, the one with all the drugs and casual sexism.
Hey everyone, it's time to meet our new Slider, Colin! Too bad he is the reason they invented the phrase "not the sharpest tool in the shed." Also, Canada!
All along, something was missing. And, as it turns out, it was this.
It's Maggie's hour, in this televisual prequel to Inception. It's better than you think. It's probably also better than Inception. I didn't really like Inception. But I really liked this episode!
The humanization of the Kromaggs? Or the de-humanization of Rembrandt?
Hey, that show I used to watch called "Sliders" is back! I think I'll watch it— I hear it's pretty smart!
You can't go home again— especially when there are a bunch of Pig-Ape dudes taking joy rides in Hummers all over the place!
Sorry, y'all. But I just don't think Tracy's Last Stand was going to be very effective...
A monstrous diatribe against the worst atrocity the show has yet committed. I have to say goodbye to Wade— here? Now? I'm not the only one who wants to jump howling off a cliff. All my friends are dead.
Why is that Dinosaurs bring out the best in this show?
The final victory of the 18-34 demographic. Who, as it turns out, are all parseltongues.
There's this vampire rock band— they used to be like, doowop or whatever, but now they're like, shitty alt-goth— and they're putting voodoo spells on chicks and eating them. And one guy from That 70s Show works for them, but I don't think he's a Vampire... I don't know, he might be.
This isn't my show. I don't want to watch this.
The darkest hour yet. Face to face with a Mirror Demon— the dark ghoul of the Multiverse. Special appearance by Haints & The Fogguns.
In which I reveal the secret fact that this is actually one of the best and most radical episodes in the show's run. A televisual essay about strength and weakness, and their place in the Multiverse. Also, Zombies.
They were so close. There we were, at the bottom of the pit. And lo, we were handed a shovel.
Sliders is a show that keeps up a façade of optimism. It falls apart as you watch.
