All 23 episodes from the first two seasons of the 1990s US sci-fi series starring Jerry O'Connell as Quinn Mallory, the boy genius who discovers the portal to an infinite number of parallel Earths, enabling him and his teacher, Professor Maximilian P. Arturo (John Rhys-Davies) to 'slide' from world to world, accompanied by his female co-worker Wade Welles (Sabrina Lloyd) - and Rembrandt 'Crying Man' Brown (Cleavant Derricks), a soul singer who just happens to be driving past Quinn's house at the moment of the experiment. Season 1 episodes are: 'Pilot Episode (Parts 1 and 2)', 'Fever', 'Last Days', 'The Prince of Wails', 'Summer of Love', 'Eggheads', 'The Weaker Sex', 'The King is Back' and 'Luck of the Draw'. Season 2 episodes are: 'Into the Mystic', 'Love Gods', 'Gillian of the Spirits', 'The Good, the Bad and the Wealthy', 'El Sid', 'Time Again and World', 'In Dino Veritas', 'Post Traumatic Slide Syndrome', 'Obsession', 'Greatfellas', 'The Young and the Relentless', 'Invasion' and 'As Time Goes By'.
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 GaitaSee all Product Description

Quinn Mallory accidently discovers a key to opening wormholes when he creates a device to defy gravity. Unfortunately, he, Wade (Sabrina Lloyd), his physics professor (John Rhys-Davies) and a washed up r&b singer named Rembrandt (Clevant Derrick)who happens to be passing by on his way to sing at an San Francisco Giants game get sucked into the wormhole when a power surge causes it to go out of control.
They discover that there are other worlds with intelligent life. Most of those other worlds are alternate Earths that have followed very different paths than our world. Unfortunately, Quinn has no way for them to get back home so they must keep sliding (the portals open on an unpredictable time schedule allowing them only so many hours in each world)from alternate universe to alternate universe hoping they'll eventually slide home.
Created by Tracy Torme (who was a staff writer on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and for trivia buffs the son of singer Mel Torme)and Robert Weiss, the series started off with a lot of potential. Although the quality varied a bit from year to year, the best stories were always interesting and the performances were, for the most part, very convincing.Read more ›
Sliders bridges the gap between those time-travel shows with a regular cast (like Quantum Leap, The Time Tunnel, Doctor Who, Seven Days, etc) and more speculative science fiction anthology shows like The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone. However, that's not to say that the concept of Sliders is unoriginal - quite the opposite.
It attempts to answer all of those 'what if' questions that arise from the exciting theory of travelling to multiple dimensions (crossing the Einstein-Rosen Bridge). It plunders popular culture along the way, with episodes blatantly based on various movies, icons and books (for example, 'The Good the Bad and the Wealthy' and 'Greatfellas' which really speak for themselves) but again, somehow, Sliders injects it's own originality into the mix to create a truly thought-provoking, addictive and original series with characters that work excellently together (solid performances from a great cast as well).
Without referring to popular culture the show simply wouldn't work as well as it does - afterall, part of the magic is wondering what the world might be like, for instance, if Elvis was still alive, or if the allies had lost the second world war, etc. As Quinn Mallory puts it:
"What if you could find brand new worlds, right here on Earth, where anything is possible? Same planet, different dimension."
Only one odd thing is the episode selection screens, as they don't tell you in which order to watch them (assuming you don't use the 'play all' option).Read more ›
Here we have seasons 1 and 2. The first season contains the feature lengthed Pilot, plus 8 more episodes, and the second seasons contains 13 episodes.
First things first, the episode order is wrong. The Fox Network, in all their wisdom, decided to air the episodes in the USA beginning with those that they liked and leaving the supposidly "bad" episodes until last. This episode order unfortunately remained with the two seasons as it was aired in other countries. Surely the DVD release could have corrected this error?
Example: 'The Prince of Wails' and 'Summer of Love' should have been placed the other way round, since SOL ends with the sliders about be engulfed in a tidal wave, and TPOW begins with the gang wearing the same clothes as in SOL and in a tight spot above a submerged San Francisco.
Another issue is that the episodes remain cut. Every episode has at least one deleted scene, but have they been re-inserted here.....? No.
Extras are a bit thin on the ground too, with only a commentary for the Pilot and a 14 minute 'Making of' featurette with interviews with Jerry O'Connel, Cleavant Derricks, Tracy Torme and Robert K. Weisse.
Overall, I would recommend buying this set, since Sliders hasn't been released in any other format.
Here's hoping that the Season 3 set will be more worthwhile.
