Hello and welcome to the last episode of season 2 of sliders. This episode was written by T. Edward Anthony & Michael X. Fernaro & Von Whisenhant and directed by Richard Compton.
The episode starts off with Quinn trying to drown himself in the pool. Moments later the sliders land in the backyard of a
mansion where Quinn notices a body in the pool. He dives in and pulls out his double. Remy runs to the house and finds a double of Wade who seems to be married to this Quinn as Arturo informs the others that it is too late. Quinn is dead, or at least his double is.
As double Wade turns away from double Quinn's body she is shocked to see our Quinn and Wade standing there. That must have been some shock. Double Wade calls someone to let them know that double Quinn is dead but she doesn't want to call the police. A local magazine lets them know that a young man is running for president. It would seem that we are on some kind of Logan's Run or Children of the Corn type world, run by young people.
Wade and Quinn are alone in a bedroom talking about how they feel about each other when double Wade interrupts them. The butler/maid guy steals the timer as double Wade tells them that they have people from the legislator coming. Double Quinn was trying to pass a bill that would allow him to introduce a device that would replace the school district. Double Wade talks Quinn into standing in for Double Quinn so that he can help the bill pass. Arturo is against it.
Remy says that they would be there for moral support but Double Wade informs them that they are too old. Damn ageist. People over 30 are second class citizens, I'm turning 28 on Friday. I'm almost there, ahhhh!!!!!!!!!!
Quinn tries to fit in with all these young nerds and get a feel for the politics but it all seems too much for him. I don't blame him, it is insane. On this world back in 1980 they changed the laws so that the voting age is 9 and you are forced to retire by 30. Howard Stern is the reason for all of this. Arturo tries to buy a beer and is refused because he is too old. The bartender tries to hit Arturo with a bat and gets his ass beat. Arturo and Remy clean house, it's pretty funny.
Quinn learns that the program he is trying to pass is a fraud, or at least that is what his partner is telling him. Double Wade tells him to avoid that guy. She tells him that she is a lair. Wade snoops through the house and finds a lot of uppers but Quinn writes it off as their doubles just trying to make it in this world. Double Wade tells one of their partners about Quinn, Quinn is nervous about it but Double Wade kisses him and distracts him. Wade calls him out and Quinn quickly moves away. The partner tells them that they have to keep helping or they won't get the timer back. On top of that he will even end up face down in the pool again. Double Wade tries to help but there is nothing he can do.
Arturo and Remy are on trial for the fighting in the bar. The judge is about to let them go because he thinks their attorney is cute but Arturo tries to put him in his place and they are sentenced to 30 days. On the way to jail Arturo and Remy pretend to argue until Arturo fakes a heart attack. They attack their guard and escapes.
Double Wade tells Quinn all about this world and how corrupt it is before they go into a board room. Quinn learns that the education program his double is backing is little more than a way to sell products to people. Double Wade clears the board room and tries to talk Quinn down but he wants none of it. She lets it slip that the whole thing will be over a week from Wednesday, but they have to slide this Wednesday. He isn't happy about it so she kisses him. Double Wade keeps seducing Quinn and our Wade is getting more and more worried that she can't find Arturo or Remy.
Quinn starts to learn that Double Wade masterminded their partner's death. It's all getting to be too much for Quinn. He needs to get the timer and get the hell off this world. Double Wade tries once more to seduce Quinn but this time he doesn't let her. He demands the timer back but she tells him to finish the call with the LT. Governor and she will try and get the timer back. He falls for it, why I don't know. After the phone call he tells Double Wade to release Wade from house arrest but she tries to get into his head again. She is good, but Quinn is done falling for it. Finally.
Remy and Arturo are in a homeless shelter, trying to avoid being outside after curfew. As the sun comes up Quinn gets his Wade and the two of them start trying to figure out what really happened, all the while they are being watched. Not as slick as they should be. Remy's and Arturo's lawyer finds them in the homeless shelter and they try to talk her into letting them escape but she won't hear. Arturo tries to reason with her but damn this girl is all about the money, so Remy tries to talk her into being a real lawyer and not just going with the flow. That doesn't work either.
Wade and Quinn start to put together that Double Wade not only killed the woman's husband but also may be behind Double Quinn. Quinn and Wade get in their car and find Double Wade's henchman in the backseat with a gun. Things are not looking good for any of our heroes.
The partner trying to blackmail them, named Kyle, is telling Quinn that he is pissed but Quinn plays a tape of Wade pretending to be Double Wade and confessing to the murders. Kyle knows it is our Wade but Quinn points out that it will do too much damage to the company. He tells Kyle to give him the timer or they will release the tapes. They have 3 hours left and still have no idea where Arturo or Remy are.
We know where they are, in court with the same judge that sentenced them last time. Their attorney shows up at the last minute with new information. She wants to try to be a real lawyer. She wins their case for them. Look at her, when she tries she can do good. They are free to go, let's just hope they get back to the mansion in time.
Double Wade shows up and tells Quinn and Wade that she is not happy, but it turns out that Quinn and Wade found the real tape showing the murder of Double Quinn. They tell her that they not only have a second tape but that her henchman double-crossed her. Seems that Quinn made him the new recipient of the Double Quinn's will. Double Wade tries to kill them all but they stop her and have her arrested just as Remy and Arturo show up. Everyone comes together just as the time comes to slide.
It's time for another slide boys and girls. Where are we going to land this time? Well thanks to the writers Sean Clark & Scott Smith Miller and director Allan Eastman we land on a world run by gangs, right out of the 20's. The episode starts off with us hearing Wade write in her journal about how scared she is that they will never make it home, no matter how much Quinn tries to tell her otherwise.
We quickly learn that they are on a world full of lawyers where everyone is so terrified of being sued that almost nothing gets done. They try and order a burger but need different forms of ID and insurance. It's funny but also a bit sad because we aren't that far from being there ourselves. Remy accidently bumps into an old lady who almost imminently tries to sue him and an attorney runs up to Remy and gives him his card, wanting to defend him in the lawsuit. The gang laughs as they open the vortex and leave this world behind.
After the credits we get a scene that would not have been out of place in the Godfather. Two rival families are getting married together and the bride to be doesn't seem to happy about it. The vortex opens and the sliders pop out, only to find themselves face to face with a wedding party armed with guns. They all seem to know Remy, calling him by his last name and referring to them as the Incorruptibles. He hugs the singer and tells him its been a while since they worked together, the man denied ever working with him. Everyone turns to give him a dirty look. This will not go well for the man.
The hotel clerk, that seems to have the same job on every world, calls and reports that the sliders checked into his hotel. Things are not looking up for our heroes. Arturo quickly learns that there is no liquor in the room. We also learn that gambling is big here. The hotel clerk sends Quinn outside where we see the singer that Remy IDed by mistake at the wedding. Turns out he is working for Remy and that was a happy accident. Or an unhappy one. Quinn makes it back to the room only to find that Remy and Wade accepted a bribe by mistake.
Remy, Wade and Quinn want to return the money but Arturo wants to avoid the mob at any cost. Not such a bad idea. Nothing good can come from messing with the mob. Quinn takes the money and heads to the informants show. He hopes to find this world's Remy and figure out what to do about the money. Quinn tries to order a beer and the bartender tells him it isn't a speakeasy, clue Quinn, that is called a clue!
A beautiful woman is being manhandled and Quinn jumps in to save her. She rewards him with a kiss and Quinn goes all googly eyes, not noticing that she stole the money. Well at least until it's too late. Arturo quickly figures out everything that is going on in this world, right down to the two families trying to form an alliance by getting married. Meanwhile Quinn tells the informant what happens and he seems to believe him. He tells Quinn he will put in a call for him. He goes on and on about how he wants to go home and be done with all this, all but telling you what is going to happen before it does. He gets in his car, turns it on and it explodes. Can't have a gangsta film without a car explosion, it is just too bad that it had to be him.
This world's Remy shows up to find out what happened. He now hears that he was the one who exposed the informant. He is now out to find our Remy, thinking that he is a gangsta trying to impersonate him. This episode is getting so good, God how can anyone not love this show? I hate remakes, I really do, but if I was ever going to work on a remake it would be a sliders remake. I don't think any cast could be as good as this one but I would kill for the chance to tell stories in this world. The way you can comment on our world, our society, so well. This is the type of story telling I need to work on.
The bride to be shows up at the hotel room and asks Remy to put her in protective custody. She tells Remy that they talked about it over the phone. She even hands him a list of her father's illegal contracts. Remy tries to tell her that he isn't the man she is looking for. Wade tells her they will go to the police but she freaks out. She tells them they don't have time. Arturo changes his mind. He tells Remy to stay with her while he and Wade go to the FBI. Quinn tries to hunt down the woman who stole from him. It doesn't take long to find her. He tells her where the money she stole came from. She gets scared quickly. Turns out she lost almost all the money gambling, only having 5 grand left of the 100 grand that she stole. Quinn takes the 5 G's and tries to win it back.
Arturo and Wade find out that the FBI is located in a building that looks more run down than most slums. They end up talking to this world's Remy who doesn't seem to believe them. Wade accuses him of being on the take. He threatens to arrest her. He tells them to tell the bride that there is nothing he can do. Victory seems out of their grasp. Quinn is cleaning up at the black jack table but the casino kicks him. Lucky he won back the money he needed.
The bride's father finds out that his daughter has turned on him. Arturo and Wade give the DA, who doesn't seem trustworthy in the least, the CD with the names on it. He sends Arturo and Wade to a safe house he has. Quinn walks into the hotel room to find the mob already there. Trouble is afoot. Arturo and Wade are taken prisoner by the mob as well. Seems the DA is just as corrupt as I thought. To make matters worse they only have 11 minutes until the slide.
The bride's father shows up and tells them that if they want to live he has to turn over his daughter, they refuse. Remy and the daughter are listening in as we learn that the DA is working for him. We all knew that. The second he says it the FBI storms in, just in time to save Wade. A shoot out happens, somehow our heroes and the mob boss are all okay. Seems this world's Remy was planning this with Quinn and our Remy. Quinn leaves the bride 5 grand and tells her to give it to the girl who stole from him so she can leave this world.
All's well that ends well, and this episode proves it more than any other. Right as Quinn is about to slide we find out that the informant is still alive and kicking. Now that is a twist no one saw coming. I say again, what a great show! On a less upbeat note, we learn that the girl Quinn sent the money to, yeah she played him both times. She was working with the bartender and the black jack dealer. The only upside with that is that we see that Quinn being the great guy he is, has got into her head and made her think twice about the life she is living. It is never too late to turn your life around.
What if you could travel to another world, where you were the same person but everything else was different. Welcome to Sliders!
Now what could be cooler than traveling to other worlds? Uh Dinosaurs! Duh! See the picture, yeah that's a T-Rex next to Remy. This episode written by Steve Brown and directed by Oscar L. Costo is all about dinosaurs. What could be better?
The episode starts off with Quinn and Arturo, well is it our Arturo? We will never know. Anyways, they are standing in a park wearing truth collars.
Remy shows up in a car with a beautiful woman, he tries to sweet talk her but keeps getting shocked. I don't know how I would handle wearing a truth collar, it's not that I like to lie, well when I'm acting you have to! It's always nice to be able to twist the truth a bit in order to have a happy life. Something that this world doesn't allow it's citizens.
Wade is the last to show, with a full news crew behind her. She had to tell them everything because well, it's tell the truth or get shocked by the collar. They quickly jump into the vortex leaving the news and that Earth behind. This my friends, is where our story begins. They crash land on an egg, breaking it. Arturo quickly notices that San Francisco is nowhere to be seen.
It doesn't take us long to figure out who the egg belongs to. A dino quickly chases the sliders out of their cave and through the forest. Arturo hurts his leg and tries to lie about it. The bad news for him, they are still wearing the truth collar. To add to their problems, the timer fell out of Arturo's pocket, forcing Quinn to back track for it.
Remy and Wade help Arturo make it to a cave to hide out while the angry mother dino hunts them down and Quinn is off alone in the woods looking for the lost timer. The cave the gang hides out in is a vast empty room. Remy points out that none of them saw the timer before they lost it. They have no idea how long they have on this world or if they already missed their slide. Not good news for the gang.
Wade goes exploring in the cave and finds crates full of eggs. Someone is here hunting dino eggs. The mother dino finds them and they try to scare her away when a woman shows up out of nowhere and screams at them to put down the rocks. She tells them that they are all under arrest for poaching. She also informs them that she found their friend's dead body back in the woods. Wade runs out of the cave and starts screaming for Quinn. Remy stops her from going out.
The ranger lady tells them that the arrest team will be there in two days and she is a hologram sent there to watch them until they can be locked up. Arturo tries to explain to her what they are and why they are there. She doesn't believe a word of it. She informs them that she has been following them for weeks. Wade tells her about the truth collars. Wade uses this to try and prove her point. Remy tries to stop her but the hologram ranger doesn't want to listen.
Now here is the part where we get a lecture on how evil humans are. It causes a fight between Wade and the others. Tension is running high. They decide to let Remy go out in search of Quinn but if he doesn't return in a half hour the others will come out and look for him. As time goes on they make a point of showing us Remy but still no sign of Quinn. It adds to the sense of dread.
Wade talks about to Arturo about her feelings for Quinn, as if they never dated or anything but on episodes past they make it seem as if they have something going on. The most confusing thing in this entire show is what is the deal between Wade and Quinn. They are cute together. Arturo starts talking about when he first met Quinn and how proud he was of him, even when he first met him. That Quinn was the type of student that every teacher longs for. Kind of makes you think that he is the real Arturo doesn't it? Maybe it is. Gun shots go off in the distance, sending Wade out to go find him. It doesn't take her long to run into and the two return to the cave, still no sign of Quinn.
However we have a new friend. The real poacher. He is the one who fired the gun shot and saved Remy's life. He starts to tell them about how he uses Dino parts to help sick humans, and make some money on the side. She calls him a liar and he disrupts her signal, getting rid of the hologram ranger. The way they see it they have 3 choices. Wait for the ranger and go to jail, help the poacher and maybe be save or go for the timer. But no matter what they do, they have to find out if Quinn is alive or dead.
They tell the poacher they want to stay but he is not happy about it. He tells them that they messed up his life, putting him on America's most wanted, all because he saved them. They are helping him, if they want to or not. Even tells them he will kill them if they cross him. Not such a nice man after all.
While the poacher is asleep Wade sneaks over and steals the disruptor. She turns it off but the hologram ranger doesn't come back. Wade goes out into the woods in search of Quinn, hoping that she has better luck than Remy did. She is calling for Quinn when the poacher puts his hand over her mouth, he tells her that Quinn is dead but moments later Quinn saves her from a dinosaur. The poacher tries to kill it but ends up being eaten. There goes his millions of dollars.
Quinn gets the truth collars off of them and the hologram returns telling them that they have an hour and a half left. The poacher has an attractant and a repellent but they don't know which is which. The gang comes up with a plan to get out of the cave, it all starts with Wade and a flare gun. Meanwhile the hologram ranger leads Quinn back towards the timer. Remy stays with the professor. When Quinn gets close to the timer Wade fires the flare gun off. Quinn gets the timer and finds out they only have two minutes. The hologram ranger tells the others and they all rush to Quinn, not an easy thing for the professor and his hurt leg. Arturo and Remy make it into the vortex as Quinn waits for Wade who makes it just in time. Quinn jumps in just as the dino attacks. Ironically they land at a dig site of the remains for the same type of dinosaur that attacked them. You have to love sliders. How could you not?
Welcome back to Sliders. Today we dive into an episode written by Nan Hagan and directed by Adam Nimoy the son of Mr. Spock himself Leonard Nimoy. The episode starts with an extreme close up of Remy as he talks to a therapist. It's a great shot, letting you get into his head right off the bat. When watching shows like this you never really think about how much the events of the episodes can affect the characters. It adds to the realism of the show that it not only admits that it takes a toll but that it shows the characters trying to deal with it.
Remy tells the doc about a slide they had a few weeks back where they made it home! Or so they thought. Now a reoccurring test that Quinn does to see if they are home is if his gate squeaks. On this world it does. Moments later his mom exits the house and runs to him. Everything is adding up, they are home! To help convince them even more, Wade has also been missing from this world for a while as well. The evidence keeps adding up. The four sliders fill Quinn's mom in on everything that has been happening. It is all too good to be true.
Arturo talks the others into keeping it all hush hush until they can figure everything out. Remy isn't happy about it but the others talk him into it. They all settle back into their lives but right away we see that no one is all that surprised to see Arturo. It is almost as if he hasn't been missing for 18 months like the others.
Remy tells his manger what happened while Arturo tells the world all about Sliding, passing the whole thing off as his idea. Wade is beyond pissed but Quinn is in a state of shock. Arturo made them promise not to come forward and then he turns around tells the world. Wade and Remy tell Quinn that they will stand by him if he wants to come forward. Remy quickly uses it to boost his career. Wade is also using it to make herself rich. Quinn feels betrayed by all of them. You can't really blame them. It is all a bit much.
Quinn finds proof that they aren't really home but Wade and Remy don't want to listen to him. They won't accept that they aren't home. Arturo won't accept Quinn's calls and to make matters worse the timer is stolen from Quinn's house. What would you do? Everything seems so perfect, so close to how you remember home. Would you accept that you are home even as the evidence mounts that you aren't? I don't know what I would do, it would be a hard choice to make. One that Remy and Wade don't want to deal with but that Quinn can't stop thinking about.
Arturo won't stop telling the whole world about sliding and how it works and how smart he is. Quinn shows up and confronts Arturo trying to tell him that they aren't home but all Arturo cares about is if Quinn will try to steal the credit. He blows Quinn off just like the others. Remy and Wade start talking about how they are going to get Quinn to accept that this is home. It seems that everyone is turning against Quinn.
Just as you start to forget about the fact the Remy is really on another world talking about this slide they remind you. Back in the past Wade gives Arturo a piece of her mind about stealing Quinn's invention but Arturo tells her that he invented it. That all Quinn really did was take his ideas and expand upon it. Something we know to be untrue.
It's at this moment that Wade finds the timer in the museums. It turns out that Arturo stole the timer. Why is Arturo doing this to the gang? After all that they have been through. It's just too much. Wade tells Quinn where the timer is but hangs up on him when he once more tries to tell her that they aren't home. Moments later she sees the Golden Gate bridge and notices that it is blue. She breaks down, Quinn tries to cheer her up but it's hard. You make it home after 18 months of being lost and not only do you make it home to see all your lost love ones but you also made a name for yourself only to have it all taken away from them in a moment. It's too much for anyone.
Wade and Quinn confront Arturo who they quickly learn knew all along that they weren't home. This episode really makes you go from liking Arturo to hating him. Quinn asks for the timer back but Arturo tells them no. He threatens Quinn when Quinn tells him that he will steal the timer back. The team is breaking up and it is so hard to watch. Not in the episode is bad way but in it is so good but heart breaking way.
Meanwhile Remy's life is going better than ever, at least until his old bandmates demand that they be allowed to cry on stage as well. So much for everything being better. Fame comes with a price just like anything else in life.
Quinn and Wade steal the timer only to learn that it is a fake. They broke in and ended up getting caught all to steal a fake timer. Back in the present Remy is about to leave the office when the doctor asks him to stay just a bit longer. The doctor leaves the room and tells his secretary to order a strait jacket for Remy. He wants to have him committed.
Quinn and Wade spend the night in jail before Remy bails them out and tells them that he has learned they aren't really home. That on this world his band own part of his music, something that never happened on Earth Prime. The gang break into Arturo's house where they find him chained to a chair in the basement. It seems that this Earth's Arturo had never left this world. This Arturo backed out of sliding and went into hiding trying to recreate sliding on his own. When our Arturo showed up they knocked him out and kidnapped him.
The timer is gone and this world's Arturo shows up. He claims to be the real Arturo, confusing the gang. He tells the gang that he escaped and captured the fake Arturo. He then starts telling them facts that only he would know. The Arturo tells them that anyone who read Wade's book would know the truth. Now, think for a moment. How would the real Arturo have known that Wade sold her book if he was chained up the whole time? It makes you wonder doesn't it?
Quinn and Wade say goodbye to their parents doubles before opening the wormhole. The other Arturo shows up in a cab. The others slide while the two Arturos fight it out. One of them slides away with Quinn while the other one, the one who might be the real Arturo stays behind. Is it him or did the real Arturo slide? It's a hard call to make and one that is never really answered. One that to this day I want to know the answer. Seeing how the Arturo who went with them goes out, I think he was the real one, but how cool would it be to finally have it answered?
Now for my favorite part of this episode. Quinn, Wade and Arturo show up in the therapists office and they get Remy as they slide out, right from inside the office. The doctor watches it all, his mind snaps. The episode ends with the doctor in the strait jacket being carted away, the same fate he wanted for Remy. It's poetic justice at it's finest.
Welcome to another episode of the one and only Slider, written by the creator himself Tracy Torme. The show opens as the Sliders land on a new world that looks normal but seems very empty. It seems no one is there. Remy brags that his knee pads have made Sliding painless but the others don't seem to care, or even want to try it.
As the sliders walk around we, not the sliders, see a sign that says Kromaggs rule. Welcome to sliders 2.0, we now have bad guys. Wade asks what Kromaggs are but none of the others have any idea. All Quinn knows is that something is messing with the timer. They start to follow the signal towards the disruption so they can fix whatever is wrong with the timer.
Wade and Remy want to leave, run the other way and get far far away from the weird sound but Quinn points out that if they don't figure it out they will never know when to slide. It doesn't matter much because our heroes spot what looks to be a spaceship and before they can run it spots them. Quinn fires off the timer and it makes the ship crash. It was working on the same frequency as the timer and allowed him to sort out their circuits.
The sliders go and investigate the fallen spaceship because lets be honest, wouldn't we all? It's a fallen ship from what looks to be outer space. That is beyond cool. Wade and Remy want to run but Arturo and Quinn have already started to investigate. A weird man shows up and tells them that the Kromaggs aren't from outer space and they don't eat eyes. He tells them that they came to this Earth to take over and kill everyone but they are from right here. Could it be another dimension? That would be a fun twist would it not?
Quinn and Arturo head inside the ship, leaving Wade and Remy outside to keep watch. We learn that the ship is more or less alive itself. It grows it's own air, the same air they breath. Quinn still thinks they are aliens. Remy and Wade walk around the theme park, not really keeping look out is it? Remy starts bitching to Wade about how he shouldn't be here, he should still be back on Earth Prime. Wade says that there is no point in crying about, even if he is the crying man. But what she wants to know is why she can't go inside the ship with Quinn and Arturo. That's what she is mad about.
Inside the ship Quinn and Arturo find a dead Kromagg and set off an alarm by mistake. They run off, find the others and all four take off as more Kromaggs show up. The chase is on! They have 23 seconds till the slide and manage to lose the Kromaggs chasing after them. Before they can open the vortex the Kromaggs turn on the lights to make it easier to find them. Arturo says that the Kromaggs look humanish. He is more right than he knows. Arturo and Remy jump into the vortex when Wade and Quinn spot another vortex open up and a ship fly out of it. They now know that the Kromaggs are sliders like them. They jump throw the vortex and escape into the new world where Arturo knocks out a man holding bread. It seems they are on a world owned by the French.
Arturo tells the others that the Kromaggs could be a different version of intelligent life on their Earth. Wade wants to warn every Earth about the Kromaggs and Arturo agrees but doesn't know how they should go about it. No one will believe them. The Kromaggs watch footage of Quinn and Arturo walking through the ship. They now know what the Sliders look like.
At the restaurant the Sliders didn't have any money and Arturo had to give them his watch. Arturo took something from the ship to use as proof that the Kromaggs were real. It starts blinking and a vortex opens as a ship comes out. It knocks out the sliders as Quinn tries to use the timer on them. They take the device Arturo stole and timer from our heroes before locking them up.
The Sliders wake up stuck to a wall. They are prisoners of the Kromaggs who are using some woman to talk to them. The Kromaggs are psychic. Remy tries to talk them into letting them leave but it is of no use. We learn that the Kromaggs have mastered sliding. They can control it at will. They came for the Sliders since they murdered one of them. The sliders tell them they were defending themselves but the Kromaggs call them liars. The girl tells them that the Kromaggs are mankind's savors not their enemies.
The sliders lose track of time as they are questioned one by one. They keep them apart and mess with their sleep so that they can't focus. It is Remy's turn for questioning, leaving Quinn alone. Arturo and Wade never came back. Could they be hurt? Could they be dead? What does it all mean?
Remy walks down the hall like the voices told him to and ends up in a room with his father. He tells Remy that Earth Prime is owned by the Kromaggs and that is better now. They made everything good, everything better. Remy doesn't seem to trust him. He tells Remy that he is heading back to the Kromaggs home world. That makes them lucky. He tells Remy that they need to work with the Kromaggs. Let them cross check Earth Prime with their records to make sure that it isn't a threat. They don't believe that Quinn invented the timer but Remy tells him it is true. Remy figures out it is all a trap when his father talks about a sister that Remy never had.
Arturo comes back to the cell where Remy is. A mystery man tells them that there are thousands of human prisoners. Some as slaves and some as food. After all Kromaggs eat human eyes. Arturo tells Remy that no matter what happens they keep their secrets to themselves. Just then Remy walks into the room. Arturo was talking to a mental image of Remy that they put into his head.
The Kromaggs offer Wade a chance to go home, they just need to know where their Earth is. Wade tells them that they are lost. That is more information than she should have told them. The Kromaggs ask if she is the first wave of an army and she tells them that her home world knows nothing about the Kromaggs, they don't believe her and she tells them that she doesn't trust them. They tell her that unless she tells them what they want to know they will kill Quinn so she just talks and tells them about different worlds they have been through. Wade ends up back with Arturo and Remy. Quinn is not there. Arturo tells them that they have to keep their secrets even if it means death. He also says that Quinn is most likely already dead.
The girl who speaks for the Kromaggs has taken Quinn to what she says is a sanctuary. She tells them that the Kromaggs are after all the other Earths because they are all run by humans and they can't have that. They want to be the dominate species. She tells Quinn that he is to die but she likes him, she likes the way he stood up to the Kromaggs. She wants him to live. He asks her to bring the timer and his friends but she tells him that his friends are to die the next day and he will be taken to the home world and questioned until he tells them everything. She tells him that she is powerless but he keeps trying to talk her into helping. She tells him she can't and runs off, but not before handing him something.
Back in the cell the others are waiting as Quinn walks in. They are all back together. The object she gave Quinn is a key. He uses it to get them out of the cell. Arturo is scared it is a trap but Quinn says that it is the only option they have. Wade offers to help the mystery man in the next cell but the Kromaggs already ate his eyes and he doesn't want to leave. The bitter man calls for the guards, figuring if he can't leave than they can't either. The Sliders run as the Kromaggs give chase.
Quinn messes up their sliding equipment to try and slow them down. Giving them a head start if they can just find the timer. The girl gives them back their timer and opens a portal to take them back to the world where they were kidnapped. She is shot and dying so the Sliders leave her there and go back to French world. She gave her life saving the sliders. Now that is a hero! Quinn stays with her till her last breath than jumps through the vortex.
The girl is still alive, it turns out that they put a tracking device in one of the sliders. She sold them out. She is not a good person, not a hero! She fooled us all! The Kromaggs are here to stay and humans are helping them!
Welcome to the next episode of Sliders written by Steve Brown and Jon Povill. The episode starts off in what looks to be an old England type setting where Wade is in love with a man, their families don't want them to be together. Real Romeo and Juliet. Too good to be true, it isn't long before her alarm goes off and it turns out she is reading. . . you guessed it Romeo and Juliet.
The slayers walk out to find an empty place to slide out, Wade is distracted and Arturo is complaining. Things are normal for the sliders. Once on the new world Wade spots the man from her dream on a motorcycle waiting for her, he even knows her name. What the hell is going on? He tells her that he was her lover in a past life and will meet them at the hotel. He even knows what hotel they stay at.
A mystery man hires someone to hit Wade but Remy pushes her out of the way. What could be the reason behind it. The doctor can tell what is wrong with his foot without even taking off his shoe and sock. She doesn't even know what a X-Ray is. She is a 5th degree psychic. Another world where people have powers. It seems that this world has trained psychics to do medicine and arrest people before they break the law. Remy and Arturo are arrested for killing Wade. What the hell?
It turns out the Prime Oracle is the one who hired Wade killed and also blamed Remy and Arturo. They are both let go from jail and told that they are being watched. If Wade dies they will be arrested. What the hell kind of system is this?
It turns out that the man in Wade's dream is up for the job of Prime Oracle. He is picked for the job and goes out on a date with Wade. Over conversation he learns that Wade didn't have the whole dream and that the Prime Oracle just died. He is the new Prime Oracle. Quinn and Arturo talk about Wade and what they think she will do. Now aren't Wade and Quinn dating? Or at least kind of dating? If I was Quinn I would be very unhappy about Wade being out on that date.
Wade shows up at the bar while the guys are still talking. She tells them that the guy, who just got promoted to Prime Oracle, has asked Wade to marry him. Things have gotten intense fast. How could she say no to one of the most powerful people on this world? That might not go well.
Wade goes back into the dream and learns that his father has found out about their relationship and Richard, his name in the past, has asked her to meet him at the bridge. However she doesn't make it there because he calls and wakes her up. Remy is not happy when he hears that she in engaged. Quinn demands that she tell him no but Wade says she wants to talk to him in person. She says she will still say no but wants to do it face to face. It is clear that Quinn is Jealous. Can you blame him?
Wade learns that the old Prime Oracle told him that she would help him to become great. She is having a hard time accepting it. Quinn keeps trying to talk her out of marrying this guy but he keeps pushing her towards him. Remy tries to tell Quinn that he needs to back off and let Wade decide for herself. He will miss her too but it isn't for them to decide what she should do.
The Prime Oracle, new one not old, made a room for Wade set up like her childhood room. At first she loves it but when she figures out that he found it by going into her mind she gets mad. Calls it akin to rape and wants to go back to the hotel. He won't let her go. He says if she leaves he will never see her again. She agrees to stay for one night and they can talk in the morning. The romance of it all is gone. The Sliders wait outside the Prime Oracle's house for Wade. it takes her awhile but they finally spot her heading towards them. They toss her a rope and she climbs down to them. As she is still climbing down police show up, surrounding them with the Prime Oracle. He tells her to say goodbye to her friends because she will never see them again. This shit has gotten dark!
She finally finished the dream. It turns out his father had Wade's past life killed and he swore to get more power and stop him. That leads us to who he is today. She tells him that if he doesn't let her go she will never forgive him. He tells her that he can't see the future with her. She is his blind spot and his whole life depends on what happens with her.
They have 6 hours till the slide and no way to get Wade out. At least until their new friend remembers that her collage roommate is the President's speech writer. Arturo makes Quinn stay behind in case Wade calls while the rest of them go off to save Wade.
No one will help Wade because whatever the Prime Oracle says goes. That is the law of the land. Wade gets a bottle of pills with what looks to be a note inside. She takes the pills and calls Quinn telling him that the Prime Oracle won't let her go. She takes a lot of pills and OD's herself while on the phone with Quinn. He rushes to over, trying to get the security to help her.
Quinn carries her out while the Prime Oracle feels bad for himself. The Prime Oracle says he doesn't want the job anymore. He isn't worthy. The ambulance pulls up near the park where the others are waiting for them. It turns out the others planned this. Wade is really alive and they kept Quinn in the dark so that the Prime Oracle couldn't find out.
As they bring Wade back the Prime Oracle senses that she is alive and comes after her. It's all down to the wire, like it always is. That's what makes Sliders so great! It keeps you on the edge of your seats. The Prime Oracle lets Wade go and tells her sorry. We learn that the old Prime Oracle set all this up to save the both of them. It is a happy ending. Got to love this show, I know I do!
Welcome to another episode of Sliders, as always out of order! Damn you Fox. This episode was written by Tracy Torme. The episode starts up as a storm is going on and our heroes are trying to make their way out of the woods. Fighting against the rain and the wind. The professor opens the vortex and one by one they jump in. Quinn going last, just as a bolt of lightening strikes it. The others come out on the other side with no Quinn. It's a bit weird that it takes them so long to notice Quinn isn't with them.
Quinn shows up and tries to call out to them, none of them seem to hear him. Wade even walks right through him. Something is wrong, something is very wrong. Wade throws out the theory that Quinn is stuck in the last world while Artuo believes Quinn is just somewhere else in town.
Wade asks how long they have to find Quinn and it is then that they discover that timer is fried. Arturo correctly figures out that a bolt of lightening must have hit the vortex. They have to fix the timer before they have to leave, made all the harder by them not knowing when they have to leave. To make matters worse they are on a word that seems to be stuck back in the fifties. They ask the a police for some help and he tries to arrest Arturo for a watch. Turns out technology is illegal on this world. Quinn uses the fact that the horse can see him to scare it, the horse runs off and the cop chases off after him. The sliders use this chance to run off.
The Sliders make it to the hotel. Arturo can't help but laugh, they have to fix the timer in a world where technology is outlawed. Making everything harder. There is no word from Quinn at the hotel, which we already knew but weighs hard on the others. Remy starts to think like Wade, that Quinn might be stuck on the last world. At the church some lady sees Quinn but tries to pretend like she can't. She starts snapping at him to go away, turns out this lady use to hear voices, everyone else thinks she is crazy. Quinn talks her into helping them.
The lady pushes through a crowd trying to get autographs from people. The note tells them what happened and they all run after the lady. They all see her talking to herself because none of them can see Quinn. She gives them a story to prove she is talking to them but before they can go any farther her mother, who looks like a horrible person pulls the daughter away. Wade believes the lady but Arturo doesn't.
Remy takes the timer and goes to talk to the priest with it. He tells Remy of a man who plays around with technology. It turns out that after World War 2 people have decided that technology wouldn't only lead to the end of times and people decided to stop advancing.
Remy and the others go to find the man. The man is a double of Quinn's father. Turns out that Quinn's double is dead. Quinn's father's Double named Micheal, agrees to let them use his equipment to fix the timer. Arturo uses tech from his watch to replace parts of the timer. Remy makes fun of Wade for kissing Quinn. Wade tries to play it off. Arturo is not anywhere near as good as Quinn. He makes a simple mistake but can't figure it out.
Quinn goes to find the girl again and now she is talking to herself at her job and people are making fun of her. Poor girl. Quinn helps her prove that a rude girl who was making fun of her stole all the money so she agrees to help Quinn. Arturo starts to get worked up and wants to storm out of the house but before he gets up the stairs but the anti tech police show up. Micheal tries to get them off with a warning and they arrest him instead, leaving the sliders down below. They took the timer with them.
Quinn and the girl follow him to a factory and Quinn leaves her outside with the cab while he goes to look inside. Turns out these anti-tech police steal other peoples tech and studies it so that when technology is made legal again they will become rich. Micheal is working with them to get trust and steal it. These people are planning to get what information they need from the sliders and then kill them.
Quinn and the girl show up at the hotel room. He uses her to talk to the sliders. He tells them all about how Micheal wants to milk them for information and then kill them. Arturo and Remy set off an alarm to get everyone out of the factory while they sneak in. The room they need to get into is locked. Arturo smashes his way into the room. Arturo gets what he needs but they spot them leaving.
Arturo and Remy show up at the hotel where the others are waiting for them. He tells them that they have to go back to Micheal's house in order to fix it. The girls mother shows up and demands that she gets back into the car. Arturo tries to stand up for her but the mother won't hear. The girl tells the mother she won't go. She wants to help them. The mother caves.
The sliders break into Micheal's house and Quinn uses the girl to tell Arturo how to fix the timer. The mother gives them a hairpin and it lets Arturo fix it. With 17 seconds left they Micheal shows up and demands the timer. Arturo activates the vortex. He offers him a chance to come with them. Micheal wants to shoot Arturo but Quinn, who can now be seen in the vortex asks him to put the gun down. Micheal does it. The sliders want to go through the vortex but it isn't active on the astral plan. He is going to be stuck there. The others go on without him for they have no other choice. Arturo promises to come back for him, Remy tells him he loves him and Wade, well it is a heartbreaking goodbye, she doesn't want to go but Quinn talks her into it. She has to go or be stuck here. It breaks her heart but she does it.
I believe this is the first time they state how long the vortex stays open, 60 seconds. Quinn is stuck there, he feels defeated but the vortex passes through the astral plane, he tells her to give his love to his father's double and jumps into the vortex. He arrives on the next world a few minutes after the others. It is a cheerful reunion on a nudest world. Got to love Sliders.
Welcome back to Slider's reviews. You know there is most likely a world out there where I did this every day like I was supposed to and have already finished Sliders. Oh to meet my double on that world. Workaholic asshole haha.
This episode is written by Steve Brown and was aired last on Fox because well as always they air everything out of order. Now for some reason ITunes doesn't have links for season 1 and 2 of Sliders, weird right? But you can check out season 3 here. We start off in a San Francisco that is still apart of Mexico where the sliders are standing on a corner and trying to get work. Kind of like how illegals do in America. It is social commentary on how we treat people who are just trying to make a living in a place that doesn't accept them. Remy even has a line that is a bit heavy handed about it, "I hate being an illegal alien in a land that use to be mine." It drives home the point they were trying to make with the scene.
The military shows up and tries to round them up but everyone takes off running. Quinn ends up alone and separated from the others with only one day left on this world. He hops over a gate to hide and hits his head hard, before he could try and escape he is cornered by dogs and saved by a pretty maid.
She brings him inside and takes care of him. She tells him to keep his voice down so that her boss doesn't hear him. She is hiding him as he recovers. Nice lady. Quinn seems to know her. They grew up together on Earth Prime. It turns out that back as a kid Quinn was in love with her. We also learn that her current boyfriend was the Canadian man who was captured at the round up in the start of the episode.
The other sliders are in court being tried for sneaking into the country. A lawyer is getting flustered trying to defend them. They don't even get a real trial and are ordered deported. Quinn tells his ex's double about the timer and sliding and offers to take her to another world. She asks about her boyfriend. She loves him and it hurts Quinn but he promises to help him as well.
Quinn meets the girl's brother, played by his real life brother who will go on to play his character's brother in a few seasons. Very cool. With two hours to go before the slide, Quinn and his new friends help break the others out of the prison bus, including the girls boyfriend.
The cops show up and arrest everyone, we learn that her boyfriend set them all up to get a pardon. Quinn tries to get her to come with him but her brother is shot so she stays and he slides with the others.
The new world they land on is once again back to having English as the natural language. We also learn that they are not home and only have 7 hours left. Quinn is still shaken up by meeting his ex and goes out drinking with Remy to talk it over. Sometimes it really does help just to sit back and have a few beers with your friends as you talk about the past and girls and your problems. It is one of the simple truths of the world.
Remy talks Quinn into trying to find the girl on this world. He finds her house and just shows up. She recognizes him. She had been crying when he showed up but invites him in anyway. On this world Quinn moved away in 10th grade instead of her. She had been missing him since as he had on his world. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't he dating Wade at this point? If so, why did he invite her to come sliding with him? But it doesn't matter, she is dating the same asshole on this world as she was on the last. They have a kid and he is an abusive asshole, oh and they are married. How much fun this must be for everyone.
The guy tries to fight Quinn but he knocks him out cold. She then asks Quinn if he could take her with him. He says he can't take the baby with them, it wouldn't be safe. Her husband then kicks her out. he made everything worse for her. Great guy. Well maybe he is, he calls this world's Quinn and sends her to go find him. He is setting himself up with his dream girl, just another version of himself. She kisses him goodbye, how sweet, unless he is dating Wade, than just not cool.
We land on a third world where Quinn, Remy and Arturo are locked in a cell in prison clothes. They are in prison and the timer is acting up. Instead of counting down it is counting up. They have the same lawyer and we hear that there is nothing to be done. The verdict is final. Arturo gets a copy of the transcript of the trial. It seems that they were arrested for the murder of Quinn's ex double. They are sent to the court for arraignment. It is the first sign that on this world is going backward in time. They even have the same judge that deported them and Wade is there with them.
Quinn notices that the clock is going backward. He puts it altogether and pleads guilty so that everything jumps backward in time again. Wade and Remy aren't sure what is going on but go along with it. Quinn tells them someone should let them out of their handcuffs and he is proven correct.
Arturo explains that there is no reason time goes the way it does. On this world it goes the other way for everyone but them and it's jarring because it doesn't fit. Remy and the others want to lay low but Quinn wants to save his ex and drags his friends along with him. The cops find them and they split up, but not before Arturo tells them that he thinks they will slide just after the murder. Another time jumps saves Quinn and Remy from being caught.
I love how they keep dealing with the same people on each world, it is a cool idea, and well done but this last part should have been a whole episode on its own. It's such a cool idea. Playing around with time like this. Quinn spots her husbands double with a rifle and starts yelling at him, but then figures out he isn't the killer. He is protecting her. Quinn spots her real killer and tries to warn her but it's too late. She is still shot and her partner kills her attacker. They blame Quinn for messing everything up and getting her shot, but what they don't know is that Quinn saved her life. Oh and once again she is dating this asshole. Quinn walks away defeated.
Arturo tells them to look up at the sky as a hole rips through the fabric of time itself. Quinn fucked up time itself. The ground itself starts shaking as the timer opens up. They go backward into the vortex leaving this world to an uncertain future. Who knows what happens next, if there is even a next on this world now.
They arrive on a fourth world and have over 3 days here. Remy tells Quinn he can call her again but he decides not to. It's a great episode about letting go and learning that you can't always fix everything, and sometimes even when you can, you shouldn't.
Welcome to the blog all about Sliders, this entry is all about the western episode written by Scott Smith Miller. A young boy is practicing shooting as the vortex opens and our heroes come sliding out. He sees the whole thing. They ask the boy where the nearest restaurant is and he gives them directions. They set off but not before Wade gives one of her famous anti-men lines.
It seems on this world San Fran is apart of Texas. As a Californian who moved to Texas let me just say that is a crying shame. It breaks my heart. In this bar we see that the stock market is shown above the bar. Quinn breaks up a bar fight and the man grabs Wade and pulls her in as a hostage. Quinn demands he let her go and the man tosses Quinn a gun, telling him he has till the count of three to draw. Quinn fires and kills the man in self-defense. The look on your face tells you how sick he feels about it. But honestly, what would you do? If it was me and I could either shoot or die, I'd shot and I'm sure most if not all of you would have too. The greatest instinct any living creature has is survival. Everyone seems to be celebrating Quinn who is in shock as the police show up.
They arrest Quinn and we learn that lawyers use guns on this world to deal with conflicts. Arturo finally shows up as the police car drives away. A lawyer shows up to collect Quinn. The sheriff doesn't want to at first but the lawyer punks him out. Quinn is scared and who can blame him.
Quinn is brought before the boss of the man who he killed. Quinn is confused and scared and offered a job. This is a weird world. Very weird indeed. Quinn calls to let Remy and the others know he is ok before going back to the lawyer showing him around. Even this new bar is giving Quinn cheers for killing the man. This world seems to love its murderers. A man calls out Quinn out in the middle of the bar. Seems he wants the job that Quinn was just offered. The lawyer showing Quinn around kills him instead, saving Quinn. If I were Quinn, I'd be counting down the seconds till I was off this messed up world.
Quinn makes it back to the hotel drunk out of his mind. Everyone wants to kill Quinn and prove they are better than him. Wade tells Remy they need to get out of town first thing in the morning. We learn that the man who is trying to hire Quinn is also trying to steal the company from a woman who has a chip that is going to change computers forever. She needs help fast or she will lose everything.
The guilt is starting to wash over Quinn and nothing he can do can change that. The damn kid from the beginning is already looking up to Quinn and thinks he is the greatest hero every. Wade tries to tell him that Quinn doesn't like killing but the kid doesn't want to hear it.
The lady who has the chip, and also happens to be the mother of the boy goes to talk to Quinn once she finds out he isn't a gun swinger. She tells him that she is the one who killed the guy not Quinn. Just then that lawyer who saved him shows up and asks Quinn to go with him. She tells Quinn to play along. The two of them start shooting target practice and we see just how bad Quinn is at shooting.
The lady asks Remy to sit in for her at a poker game, a poker game that controls her stock. She tells him just to fold every time. She can't afford anymore than that. This world is insane. Her attorney who was supposed to play poker for her was killed. Remy folds on a fullhouse. What the hell!! The police won't even look into the murder. They just send Wade away. What cowards.
The law firms turns on Quinn, thinking he is working with the woman. They try to punk Quinn out but he bluffs his way out of the office. Thank God that worked otherwise he would have been dead. The lawyer who helped Quinn out gets fired for Quinn's action. Meanwhile Remy started playing for real and is cleaning house for the lady. Wade tells Remy to cash out. The rest of the table is not happy.
A hostel take over is under way. Things are going down and fast. The kid keeps talking about how great Quinn is but they all just send him away. He calls Quinn a coward as he runs off. The kid steals Quinn's gun. She either has to give up the company or Quinn dies. That is when Wade notices that the gun is gone and they all chase after the kid who is nowhere to be seen.
He walks into the bad guys office with his gun pulled out. He is ready to fire, he tells them who he is and why he is after them. Quinn shows up just in time and starts trying to talk the kid down. The kid listens and gives Quinn the gun just as the sheriff shows up. Once more Wade goes on a rant, this time against guns. Quinn gets ready to go up against the best gun in the east. Quinn is going to die.
Everyone shows up to watch the showdown. Quinn takes off his gunbelt and the gunman says he is still going to shoot. Quinn then starts giving a speech to everyone. He then calls out the sheriff. The gunman is ordered to shoot but he won't do it. The boss pulls out his gun but the lawyer who helped Quinn before stands in the way. Others move into the way blocking Quinn from dying as well. Arturo opens the vortex. The Sheriff arrests the boss and the woman's company is saved. More so by the fact that Remy won her all that money for it. The Sliders made things better on this world.
I'm back to talk about one of the greatest shows of all time, Sliders! This episode written by Tony Blake & Paul Jackson starts off with the sliders landing on a new world where they will spend the next 3 days and 6 hours.
This world has women everywhere and the sliders don't really notice until a little girl brings attention to them. A group of women rush them and at first Remy thinks that it is because Remy is a star again but they quickly learn as they are arrested that that is not the case. Only Wade escapes.
Arturo and Remy are loving this world but Quinn is worried that something is wrong, we learn soon that he is right. They are on a world where men are all but wiped out so the few that are left are put into camps and forced to breed. The Sliders will never be allowed to leave the breeding center.
A random man decides to help them escape, his sister and wife are planning a break out for him and for whatever reason he invites the sliders along. His sister storms the camp and the police give chase as the sliders and random man go over the wall. They make it back to the house and relax a bit while they wait for Wade to show up.
She is at the hotel where women are lined up just waiting to get on a list to breed with a random man. She gets a call telling her where to meet with them and the police over hear. Wade makes it to the house and at first pretends not to have the timer giving everyone a heart attack. She pulls it out and everyone has a good laugh, at least till the cops show up.
They escape but only get s far before the cops find them again and capture Quinn and Arturo. The others get away. I love this episode so much, it always reminds me of a scifi channel movie that I saw when I was kid. It came out around the same time and was called the last man on planet Earth. If you guys like this episode check it out.
A random lady saves Quinn from being taken by the cops and takes him back to her house. No sign of Arturo and the Sliders only have a couple of hours left until the slide. She shows him a flyer showing that he and his friends are still wanted so Arturo, while not with the others hasn't been arrested either. It seems that the Australians must have him. Wade and Remy have to break in and slide out from there. The only problem with their plan is that Quinn is not there like they think he is.
Arturo is being prepped to send to Australia and one of the soldiers wants some alone time with him. Wade dresses Remy as a woman so that they can go outside but he won't save his stash, can't say I blame him. I hate being clean shaven. The man who got them out of the center is waiting, most likely to turn himself in to save his wife. Poor guy, all of his problems come from the fact that he decided to help the Sliders out. He didn't have to and maybe shouldn't have.
Arturo gets Wade's attention and she demands to see Arturo and Quinn, they learn that Quinn isn't there. The Australians get ready to ship the three of them back home but Wade promises that she can get them the all-star American breeder. Meanwhile Quinn is having no luck finding his friends. The lady asks Quinn to father her child and he says that he doesn't want to father a child that he will never see. Something that as a bastard myself I can understand. Wade tells the man who helped them that she can free his girlfriend and keep him free as well. Wade and her damn plans.
She makes a deal with the cop and fed, her friends for the all-star, she also tells them that the all-star is about to be given a virus so he can't breed anymore so their hands are tied. Wade then tricks both sides into meeting under the bridge. The other catch to Wade's plan was the wife being freed. The trade is almost done but Wade isn't there and no Quinn either. The man takes off running into the van where Arturo and Remy were sitting. Turns out that Wade stole disabled the cops van and showed up with her own. Everyone is together but Quinn. They head to the spot they told him to meet them and there he is. She opens the vortex and drives through it. Quinn jumps in after them just as the cops show up. The man who saved them and his wife are on a new world now where they can be happy and not have to worry about being split up. The episode ends on the lady who helped Quinn smiling and looking at a picture of her husband. Did Quinn try and give her a child? We will never know but I think he might have. It would have been nice seeing as it is the only chance she will ever have of having one.
Welcome to the first show that I nerded out on!
