4.0 out of 5 stars "Sliding" into season 3 of cult sci-fi show July 18, 2005
Format:DVD
First this is an honest to goodness review of the boxed set. There's no speculation here as to what's in the set. The first two seasons of "Sliders" found the series looking for its "slider legs" so to speak. By the second short season the series had found its niche and a solid direction for the series. Both seasons had their fair share of strong episodes. The third season was the first full one with 25 episodes produced. While there were about as many quality episodes here as seasons 1 & 2, we get a number of the series best episodes here including one where Dr. Arturo leaves the group permanently in a moving episode. Regardless, season three had a number of strong episodes ("Rules of the Game", "Number 1 Fan", "The Exodus" Parts 1 & 2 and "The Guardian" are a few highlights). I'm not going to go over the plots of the episodes (there's too many to do justice to the series)but you can find synposis of each at the tv.com website.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Case Design October 6, 2005
Format:DVD
Whoever designed the cases/discs for both of the Sliders sets so far needs to be fired. Both cases are a huge risk to the discs. In the first one, its pretty easy to scratch them against one another. And this one is even worse!!! The double-sided discs wouldn't have been a problem if they hadn't arranged the case the way they did. Having to take the top disc out to get to the bottom disc? Absolutely ridiculous!. And you practically have to hold the case open with both hands just to open it wide enough to get the discs out without scratching them. Then, you've got no hands left to grab the disc(s)!!! If you plan on buying this series, plan on investing in a set of cases too. There's no way you should keep them in the case they come in.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good show in a crap package. August 12, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The title pretty much sums it up. Sliders is an excellent program. The episodes are inventive, the characters are likeable, and the acting is usually very good. However, this is a review for the DVD set, not for the program itself, and, while the program is highly entertaining and one of my favourites, the DVD set is, quite possibly, the worst that I own.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Tough Year for Sliding January 16, 2007
Format:DVD
A lot of stuff going on this season, the departure of Arturo and the arrival of the soldier babe. The season began well enough, but unfortunately, some of the ideas were really not well conceived.

Personally, there were many missed opportunities that seemed in the first season and part of the second, to hold so much hope they'd cover. With so much "alternate history/earth" ideas having been around for a long time, one wonders why they tried to create their own. It isn't that they were bad, just not very well developed. Without going in to this episode or that, it's just a comment about direction more than content.

I still like the series and hope they put out the last two seasons eventually. I bought this so clearly it was enjoyable to me, and is still. But I'm a Science Fiction fan and am willing to let some things go for the sake of the conceptual whole; they call that 'suspension of disbelief', a willingness to let the story tell itself without pointing out the sometimes glaring errors and/or problems with the concept or idea they are asking you to embrace.

I guess it's just disappointing when they start changing a series because ratings (adding "sex appeal") are more important than content and substance, which became even more problematic in the final two seasons. They did seem to struggle to maintain some kind of conceptual relevance and good story telling, and it is evident in some of the episodes. Pushing the story arc along helped.

Not the best of reviews, but honest. And I think that is what you really want in a review, right?

This is probably my favorite season, I haven't seen the fifth yet. In this season, it seems that everyone does a little growing up and the acting gets better as well.

The first two seasons are the best, hands-down. The third season suffered from studio meddling, manifested in blatant knock-offs of popular movies of the time. Read more

Sliders
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

Sliders Final Seasons!
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.
