Accompanying them on various leaps through time and space are spectacular guest stars including Adrienne Barbeau (Escape from New York), Shane West (ER) and Malcolm Jamal-Warner (Jeremiah). It's an absolute must-have for every sci-fi fan!

3.0 out of 5 stars A truly mixed bag December 28, 2007
By Howie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First the technical stuff:

In a very good move, the disks in this set are single-sided! An improvement over season 3. The box (exterior and interior) design is similar to season 3 with different art/colors. It's a 5 tray digipak design with a tape hinge that's glued to a flexible green translucent plastic "wrap around" cover. The portion of the cover hidden by the slipcase has episode information screened on it, which is nice and a first for this series. Video is Full Frame (1.33:1) as originally broadcast, and looks very good. Audio is English Dolby Digital 2.0. There are English subtitles. Disks 1, 4, & 5 have 4 episodes each with disks 2 & 3 having 5 each. From all appearances, "missing scenes" have been restored to the appropriate episodes.

Comments about the season:

Sliders moved from Fox to the Sci Fi Channel beginning with this season. The first episode garnered the highest premiere rating that the Sci Fi Channel had ever received up until that point.

We left our intrepid team (minus Prof. Arturo, plus Maggie [Kari Wuhrer]) at the end of season 3 with a damaged timer that doesn't track Rickman's wormhole. This separates Wade and Rembrandt from Quinn and Maggie on different worlds.

We open season 4 as Quinn finally repairs the timer so it can track Wade and Rembrandt's photon trail to Earth Prime. He and Maggie return to Earth Prime only to find it in the hands of the Kromaggs. Wade is kidnapped (off screen), Rembrandt is rescued, Quinn learns that Wade has been shipped "off-world" (actually an alternate Earth).

Sabrina Lloyd had left the show between seasons after friction on the set between her and Wuhrer led her to demand that Executive Producer David Peckinpah pick between the two of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better VERY late, than never January 28, 2008
By Spike
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It took a big swift kick in the tush to get Universal Studios to FINALLY release season four of Sliders and now we fans own the DVD before they are all in their 70s and in rocking chairs! It was probably the studio's latest battle with the bootleg industry that finally got them listening.

Although this season lacked the humor of the other three seasons (I deeply miss John Rye Davies) this season has the most action of any other. Unlike any other season the Kromags were given a role as a group of villains identical to the Nazis. Many episodes were actually downright scary.

The very best episode of all is "California Reich", in which the sliders land on a world that still discriminates by race and surgically converts blacks into faceless beings called "eddies". The last part of this episode is really a shocker.

One very major change is the character of Cleavant Derricks. In the first three seasons the character "Rembrandt" was a bit similar to that of Stan Laurel with John Rye Davies' character, which was a bit like Oliver Hardy. In season four, "Rembrandt" is a completely new character, that of a very angry militant who vows revenge. It's hard to believe he is the same Rembrandt.

The lead actor, Jerry O'Connell, had his best season to date. Not only does he do well as Quinn, but he does extremely well as some very colorful atler egos. In the episode "The Alternateville Horror" he shows he has skill as a comedian when he plays a counterpart who is a spaced out hippie.

The only drawback to this season is another actor, Charlie O'Connell who, unlike his older brother, does not seem to have much acting ability. Evidently he did not have much acting experience. He started out as a fashion model.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Underrated Season March 6, 2008
Format:DVD
Season 4 of Sliders is actually a much better season than the ultimately disappointing 3rd season, as the show returns to the basics and concentrates on building the chemistry between the travelers instead of the movie-spoof of the week format the now departed David Peckinpah forced on us in the previous season.

Some of the very finest episodes of the series are in this season, presenting some novel sci-fi concepts and furthering the show's mythology.

There's an episode where an alternate Quinn accidentally slides his entire world away, an episode where all citizens are forcefully medicated by the government, an episode where the sliders are turned into computer data, and episodes dealing with themes as diverse as racial cleansing, reality television, an anti-Kromagg virus, the technological divide, cloning for body parts and rapid aging.

This is truly this troubled but fascinating show's last hurrah and well worth adding to your collection.

Of course I don't know anything about hollywood diplomatics, but I did extensive research on this series and found that seems to be the pervaying belief.
This series began with the concept of travel between alternate realities, sideways timetravel as it was described to studios. A concept that was inevitably destined to be made into a television show but as demonstrated by the rapid decline of quality in this show it can be made well or pathetically.
I loved the first two season. The chemistry between all the characters was incredible. The stories were all centered around the what ifs of history. If we hadn't won the revolutionary war, if technology had been banded, if the 60s movement hadn't died out. Every episode was interesting and surprising. As a writer myself, a fact I try to selfishly shove into everything I say, I was shocked by how good the stories were and how the rather elaborate concept could be understood quickly in every episode.
Then season three came around. At the time the studios were afraid that the older cast members and more thinky television stories would scare away the viewers. A fact that makes me question if these studio people had forgotten that, when the series was cancelled half way through the first season, already avid fans wrote tons of letters to get the series renewed. So they replaced the Professor with Maggie. Now unlike alot of reviewers here I think Kari Wuhrer did a fairly good job becoming an interesting and integral part of the team considering that the whole point of her character was to show off her incredible figure as much as possible. And the episodes became more action packed and parodies of major motion pictures. I still liked several episodes, enough to keep my interest in the show.

FINALLY !!!!!!!
The whole movie deal fizzled due to lack of script and lack of interest of those involved who had starred in the series and left in less than happy circumstances. JRD (the professor) was fired by the producers and given a horrible death scene. Sabrina Lloyd basically went to the producers and... Read More
