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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
