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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully the entire series will be released!!!!!!!!!! December 23, 2007
By Kevin P
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The one thing I am beginning to dislike are how studios tend to forget fans want to collect the whole series...not half of it. I am so happy that Sliders - Season 4 will be out, and hopefully Season 5 too. I wish there would be deleted scenes on Season 5 that are put into the very last episode as to not leave it as the cliffhanger as originally aired. That is wishful thinking on my part. It is not fun to start a collection, only to wait forever for the next season. Hopefully, studios will realize this TV-DVD is a lucrative business (hence - Current Writer's Strike negotiations) and decide to start releasing TV shows entire run and at a faster pace. Hasn't anyone realized walking down the DVD aisles, in stores, that TV shows take up an entire aisle now.

Some episodes would skip or stop. Most episodes were OK. We enjoyed this show when it was on, so it was a disappointment that some of the episodes did not play correctly.

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
