Product Description

Get ready for Seasons One and Two of the breakthrough Sci-Fi series Sliders!Quinn (Jerry O'Connell), a brilliant grad student, has created a device that opens a wormhole to an infinite number of parallel universes where history has taken different paths. His first test trip goes awry, stranding his physics professor, Arturo (John Rhys-Davies), his friend, Wade (Sabrina Lloyd), and bystander Rembrandt "Crying Man" Brown (Cleavant Derricks) in parallel San Franciscos.Now, this foursome of Sliders must travel from one alternate reality to another in the hope of somehow finding their way home.


Though often and unfairly dismissed as a Quantum Leap clone, the Fox TV series Sliders earned a substantial fan base thanks to its intriguing central premise--the existence of multiple alternate realities--and impressive special effects, both of which get a fine showcase in this six-disc DVD set. Jerry O'Connell leads the appealing cast as a college student who accidentally discovers a portal into alternate dimensions; with the help of his professor (Lord of the Rings' John Rhys-Davies), a spunky Girl Friday (Sabrina Lloyd), and a soul crooner (Cleavant Derricks), O'Connell encounters a host of strange parallel Earths, including a British-ruled United States and one where dinosaurs roam a national park. All nine episodes of the 1995 debut season and the 12-episode second season from '96, as well as the pilot from '95, are included in the aesthetically impressive set; extras, however, are limited to commentary by creators Tracy Torme and Robert K. Weiss on the pilot episode, and a making-of featurette with O'Connell and Derricks. --Paul Gaita

    Though the first two seasons are the best, I enjoyed them
    all. And it's about time this set is coming out.
    Here are my personal grades and info on the episodes from
    the first two seasons.
    Here is what you get with the first two seasons.
    1. The Pilot Part 1 ( still the best episode) Quinn first discovers that his sliding technology works. Then he tells the proffesor who at first does not believe him. But later comes around. Along with Wade Wells the three of them test out sliding. But when doing so they accidentaly pull in soul singer
    Rembrant Brown.( Episode Grade A+ )
    2. Pilot Part 2 ( The sliders find San Fran. under an ice age,
    and The U.S under Soviet Communist rule. ( Episode Grade A+ )
    3.Fever ( The sliders travel to a world that has never developed Antibiotics.Evereyone around them is sick so they must do something before time runs out.(Episode Grade A-)
    4.Last Days ( Sliders find a world where an asteroid is about to destroy the earth. The professor saves the day by showing
    a fellow scientist how to build a nuke.( Episode grade A+ )
    5.Prince of Wails ( In this world America is still under England's Colonial rule.( Episode Grade B )
    6. Summer Of Love ( Sliders find alternate world where We are
    at war with Austraila and Remy replaces his dead alternate self
    as husband to a old high school crush. ( Episode grade C+ )
    7.Eggheads ( In this world intellectuals are treated like athletes, and Quinn competes in A weird sport that tests your intellect. ( Episode grade B- )

    Format: DVD
    Quinn Mallory ( Jerry O Connel)is trying to create an anti-gravity device and accidentally creates a device that opens up a portal. His physics professor Maximillian P. Arturo (John Rhys-Davies), and his girlfriend Wade Wells (Sabrina Lloyd) want to accompany Quinn through the portal to see where it leads. A washed up singer named Rembrant Brown (Cleavant Derricks)is also accidentally dragged along for the ride, when he is walking buy and sucked through the portal with them. Quinn and the rest of the group "slide" to another dimension of earth. The Sliders soon realize that they would much rather return back to their own dimension, but things are not that easy. Once you have entered through the portal, you have to keep traveling to different dimensions of earth to find the right one that will lead back home. Each episode deals with Quinn, Professor Arturo, Wade, and Rembrant exploring each dimension to find their way back to their own dimension. Unfortunately, once the Sliders have entered a particular dimension, there is only a limited amount of time to reopen the portal, and there are only a few select places within each dimension they can do it from. Finding the right place to open the portal is often a challenge to the group because each dimension is different than their own, and can be life threatening at times.
    I have heard people often refer to Sliders as a rip off of Quantum Leap. While Quantum Leap was a better show, Sliders is completely different. Quinn, Professor Arturo, Wade, and Rembrant are not traveling through time. They are traveling through other dimensions of earth that differ from their own. This is what makes the show so great, because it is very interesting to see how each dimension will be different than the next. The show also offers tons of suspense.

    Format: DVD
    What if you could travel to parallel worlds? The same year, the same Earth, only different dimension. A world where the Russians rule America? Or where your dreams of being superstar came true? Or where San Francisco was a maximum security prison. My friends and I found the gateway. Now the problem is... finding a way back home.

    Buy this box set and see what happens, the set comprises the 2 hour Pilot, 8 Season One and 13 Season Two episodes.

    The first two seasons of the series were the best and most thought provoking of the entire series, they examined how a different outcome in major historical events (such as who won World War 2, the non discovery of anti-biotics or the Atom Bomb) could have resulted in a very different present day earth. The main focus was on a group of 4 Inter Dimensional travelers trying to find their earth while randomly 'sliding' between alternate realities (parallel earths), with no control over how long they stayed in the respective dimension. They were also burdened with the fact that if they did not leave when their 'Timer' reached zero they were stuck on that reality for 29 years.

    My Gripes on the box set:

    1) The packaging:

    While the foam holder gives the appearance of multiple earths which is a nice effect, it is a terrible idea for medium to long term storage. That type of foam 'breaks down' over time and eventually won't be able to hold the DVDs in place, in addition it makes it difficult to replace the plastic case as ther is no space between the foam and inside of the box. A 'REAL' booklet should also have provided instead of the 2-page booklet glued to the back of the box which holds an episode list and ads for other Universal TV titles.

    Optional ones, yes. (They call them captions rather then subtitles, even though they're really the same thing when it comes to DVDs.)
