We’re Going in a Different Direction (The Last of Eden).

It must be really stressful to write something like this.

The Stranger is Frightened (Paradise Lost).

What could I say other than "yeah, they're right, this blows." It's actually literally impossible to give a redemptive reading of this episode— so why not have some fun with it?

If You Can Touch It, You Can Catch It (Slide Like An Egyptian).

Probably the greatest scene ever to come out of the show.

By Way of Consolation, Have a Scone (Murder Most Foul).

Peckinpah. That name, to Sliders fans, is synonymous with Pain.

Pulling My Dead Mother Off My Chest (Season’s Greedings).

Shared on: July 13, 2012

Out of nowhere, we have the show pull another semi-gem out of its ass.

Confidentially, I Adore You (State of the Art).

Shared on: July 6, 2012

"State of the Art" is the most bizarre failure of screenwriting I've ever seen allowed to be on a screen.

This Show is Fixed (Dead Man Sliding).

Television is a strange beast. A different world in a tiny box. A thousand different worlds in a tiny cube. An infinite number of tiny impossible worlds, all trapped in a box. Television, then, is Sliding.

Full of British Bull (The Prince of Slides).

"Dudes Get Pregnant." To quote Sam Beckett, "Ho Boy."

Oil Slick, With Noodles (The Fire Within).

There could have been a wonderful episode here.

No More a Wizard (Dragonslide).

Shared on: June 1, 2012

You can hang almost every problem with Dragonslide and Season Three as a whole on the last ten minutes of this episode.

Welcome to the Freak Show (Desert Storm).

So this, then, is the moment when a huge amount of laziness injects itself into the show.

She Was Aroused As Never Before (The Dream Masters)

Shared on: May 18, 2012

I've been very, very forgiving to this season so far (as if you hadn't noticed). But now I can't be nice any longer.

Remnants of Ancient Suns (The Guardian).

Shared on: May 10, 2012

It's the last televised stand of Tracy Tormé, the last time the creator of the show gets to put his mark upon it.

Same Planet, Different Dimension (Season Three Intro)

Shared on: May 3, 2012

I do feel that Sliders' lack of, let's say, 'brandable identity' is not wholly unrelated to its mild unpopularity.

My Ears Do Not Hear You (Electric Twister Acid Test).

Shared on: April 27, 2012

There are strange things afoot in this week's entry. Or, let me put it this way: I've never seen Stand By Me. So I feel like I'm missing out on something.

He Became A Sculptor (Rules of the Game).

HUNGER GAMES HUNGER GAMES KATNISS KATNISS TEAM HAYMITCH.

The Difference Between an X and a Y (Double Cross).

Over there is an Elephant. Look at it. Accept the fact that it is in the room with us. We must kindly ask the Elephant to leave. We have work to do.

Call Me “Mom” (Sliders Comics: Deadly Secrets).

Shared on: April 7, 2012

I've oft repeated that the design of these comics is to tell the stories that can't be told. In this case, the story couldn't be told because they didn't want to tell it.

I Will Make You Lords & Kings (Sliders Comics: Blood & Splendor).

Shared on: March 31, 2012

Here we have a comic based on Tracy Tormé's treatment for an episode of the show that couldn't be filmed due to budget. We're like 8 pages in and I have no idea what's going on.

That Carrot Was Organic (Sliders Comics: Narcotica).

Shared on: March 23, 2012

Sliders first attempt to deal with DRUGS and the debut of Jerry O'Connell as a 'creative' force on the show.

Spite, Rage, Desire, Strife (Sliders Comics: Darkest Hour).

Damn these people have some dark sides!

The Stress Has Run These Holes Together (Sliders Comics: Rapture/Damnation).

Shared on: March 15, 2012

As you read Rapture, you realize that there's kind of a lot going on.

I Book My Own Gigs (Sliders Comics: Armada).

Shared on: March 11, 2012

Wait, there are Sliders comic books?

Have You Looked At The Heavens (As Time Goes By)?

Shared on: March 3, 2012

As an unplanned Series Finale, this episode does a frighteningly good job of summing up the underlying themes of this series.

The Carrot & The Stick (Invasion).

Shared on: February 24, 2012

"Invasion" is probably the most important episode of the series, and not just because it introduces a villan that would ultimately shape the future of the show.
