Don't even call this sliders.
on March 5, 2012
OK, so like many who may read this, I too am a huge fan of the series Sliders.
Me and my mother began watching the series on Netflix where they conveniently had all 5 seasons. Season one was great, a new show we thought we could get into. Season 2, just as good if not better than 1. Season 3, horrible writing but still watchable. Season 4, A great season all around and possibly the best writing. Then Season 5.... Oh gosh. Well what good can I say? Nothing.
I mean after watching 4 I thought "OK, here comes the big finale! A final stand against the Gormags? Finding and saving Wade? Re uniting with Quinn and Collins real parents? No. Instead we are introduced to Quinns replacement, Collin is merely "Unstuck" in space and time to be forgotten about. And the in the end the Only original slider is Rembrandt. Which don't get me wrong Rembrandt is one of my favorite characters its just why? What happened to the engrossing story that kept you on the edge of your seat? All thrown away by horrible writers at the SCI-FI network. I mean this was one of my favorite shows that I had to watch get butchered right in front of my eyes. The love between Quinn and Bennet might as well have never happened in season 4 if 5 was right around the corner. Collin? Yeah another thing that was forgotten in 5.
Seriously, What a sad day in TV history. What should have ended in a movie, ended up being killed in a season that is best left forgotten.
