Image and sound quality are exceptionally good. The series looks great with vivid, bold colors and features nice use of the Dolby Digital Surround format (evidently Universal must be thinking of the other "Sliders" produced on an alternate Earth as they list the soundtrack as being in mono in a number of places). Extras are light for season three with only a gag reel (provided by one of the fan sites). There was more material that another fan site had and would have offered Universal for free if they had been contacted in time (at least according to Gord Lacey at tvondvd). I'm hoping he's right as, perhaps, we could see this material on the mixed fourth season boxed set.Read more ›
Conflict between creator Tracy Torme and new executive producer David Peckinpah resulted in Torme's vision being restricted and him leaving the series.
Star John Rhys-Davies also had many problems with Peckinpah, and always spoke out if he thought a script was rubbish (which most were). Peckinpah didn't like him and this led to him being sacked and his character killed off in two-part episode "The Exodus", although the official statement was that he left because of creative differences.
Further strain occured when his replacement, Kari Wuhrer, didn't get on with other cast member Sabrina Lloyd, which was a one of the biggest factors in her exit from the series after season 3. She said to Peckinpah it was either her or Wuhrer, and he picked Wuhrer.
Again, the Fox Network, in all it's glory, didn't air the episodes in their correct order, although it wasn't as bad a shuffle as on the first two seasons.
One episode, "The Last of Eden" was supposed to air before "The Exodus" since it had the Professor in it, but since it aired after, when he was killed off, they had to quickly add in a bit at the beginning to make it a flashback episode.

The four double-sided discs come in a floppy plastic package. There is no episode list in the packaging, unlike most other DVD sets that include one to help you keep your place, and very little liner material. That which is provided is adhered lightly to the box with dry glue. The fact that the discs are double-sided makes them more fragile and prone to being scratched as there is no 'safe' side to touch. The flimsy plastic of the cases is difficult to hold open and provides little protection. Furthermore, the discs are stacked on top of each other, so you often have to pick up one to get at the one beneath it, increasing the opportunity for damaging the disc. I can barely imagine a more irritating package design. An empty box with DVDs in protective CD sleeves would be more convenient.
There are also few extras included, and you have to watch the Universal logo animation over and over and over. Clearly, this package was put out to convince us to buy more, which isn't likely to happen if they don't improve the materials. It's sad that such a terrific show wound up being so mistreated.

I agree fully I am not very happy with MANY shows that have seen one or two season released and then nada more. Especially shows that are off the air. I think this should be released in cheap (no features, no frills) all seasons packaging. This would make at least myself happier than investing... Read More

Universal released Sliders Season Four on DVD on March 25, 2008. They should have Sliders Season Five released sometime during the Holidays of 2008 or in 2009.
