What if you could travel to parallel worlds? The same year, the same Earth, only different dimension. A world where the Russians rule America, or where your dreams of becoming superstar came true, or where San Francisco was a maximum security prison. My friends and I found the gateway. Now the only problem is...finding a way back home.
In his basement in San Francisco, boy genius Quinn Mallory unlocks the doorway to an infinite number of Earths. During a test run, Quinn invites co-worker Wade Wells and his teacher Professor Maximillian Arturo to see his new invention. But an increase in power and an early departure leave all three, plus a washed-up soul singer named Rembrandt "Crying Man" Brown, lost in a parallel world. Now they must "slide" from world to world, not only adapting to their changing surroundings, but also trying to get back to their world. Will they ever make it home?
Over the years, Sliders
has become one of the most praised sci-fi shows of the 1990s. The show has gained a cult following that rivals such longer running shows as Stargate SG-1
. For years people have been asking for it to return to FOX with the original cast, or at least a major movie made. To this date, there are no plans for a new series or film.
