Sliders

As Time Goes By - S2-E13

Other mistake: The Sliders discover the reverse-time issue when they notice that the clock on the wall is backward. However, in other shots, clocks look normal. Look carefully at the clocks on the judge's desk as the camera pans by.

Matty Blast

Greatfellas - S2-E10

Deliberate mistake: When Quinn comes back to the hotel room with a large stack of money he'd won at the casino, he waves it, and you can see a 1-dollar bill in the middle. He was supposed to have over $100,000, but since the crew couldn't get that much money for a brief scene, they used a stack of dollar bills. (00:35:40)

The Prince Of Slides - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: The clock on Danielle's hospital room wall reads 11:40 a.m. when she's brought in. Seconds later when the nurse leads Rembrandt to a bed because he thinks he's going to give blood the clock on that wall reads 2:30 p.m.

Coconut

As Time Goes By - S2-E13

Other mistake: According to reverse-time issue: In court, when Quinn looks at the clock on the wall, you can see that the clock still goes forward, despite of the anticlockwise indicators since the digits are inverted. (00:31:25)

Last Days - S1-E4

Factual error: When the missile intersects with the asteroid, and nothing happens right away, Arturo mentions to Bennish that light travels at over 186,000 miles per second, implying that the light from the explosion will take a moment to become visible. The problem is that by the time the missile is about to hit the asteroid, the light from the missile itself will have just as much lag time as the asteroid's explosion. The explosion should therefore have appeared immediately upon seeing the missile hit the asteroid.

Last Days - S1-E4

Factual error: An early nuclear warhead would be totally inadequate for destroying an asteroid 10KM in diameter - you'd need a bomb roughly FIFTY THOUSAND times more powerful than the Project Trinity bomb.

Double Cross - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When the Professor returns from the vortex and punches the guard, in the guard's glasses is the reflection a crew man holding a boom in his hands. Look closely in the right lens. (00:39:05)

Luck Of The Draw - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: After Quinn bumps his head, he touches the wound with his left hand and his watch is turned around so the face looking inward. In the very next shot, from a different angle, he resumes touching his head but the watch has turned around to the standard position.

Coconut

Last Days - S1-E4

Factual error: The light and the noise from the explosion are in sync to the observers on earth. However, as anyone who has been to a fireworks display can tell you, sound travels much slower than light. In fact, as far away as the explosion was, it's questionable whether any noticeable sound would reach earth at all. Even if it did, it would be heard long after the light is seen.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: The doorway inside Quinn's house on ice-world is lined with snow-covered icicles. Watch as Arturo walks through this doorway; he bumps into the icicles and you can see that it is just a bunch of cotton.

Matty Blast

Prophets And Loss - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Sliders see their first bunch of Welcomers get zapped, there is a short blonde woman in that group. We know later in the episode that these people are being burned to ashes; so she is now dead. In the final scene of the episode, that woman is in the audience.

Show generally

Plot hole: In the episode where the Sliders go to the world where Quinn sees himself as a child attending his father's funeral. Quinn helps his young self deal with bullies. Quinn repeatedly mentions is was all happening the way it did on Earth Prime. The flaw here is that in the Series Premier episode, they showed a picture of Quinn, his mom and dad. Quinn was a teenager in that picture, not a kid. Therefore the events in the alternate world they were visiting could not be happening the exact same way. The man in the picture is the same man shown as his father in the other worlds so it cannot be a "stepfather" that his mom remarried.

Post Traumatic Slide Syndrome - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Wade enters the recording studio to see Rembrandt, we can see him reflected in the window removing his headphones and handing them to an assistant. The camera angle changes and he removes the headphones (again) & puts them down on a stool.

The Exodus (2) - S3-E17

Plot hole: If Quinn has the timer that could be used multiple times without trouble, why couldn't he take back Remmy and Wade then come back and save the world in peril?

The Last Of Eden - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: In this episode the team is looking back into a slide that happened before Dr. Arturo passed away. Upon arrival on this version of earth they are showing them using a timer which they have obtained in the very episode (Exodus Part 2) Dr. Arturo gets shot and dies, and therefore couldn't have been used by them in this earlier slide.

Quinn Michael Mallory: We have a plan. We just don't know what it is yet.
