Time Again And World - S2-E6

Question: How was the title of this episode written? It makes no sense; is it a play on words or something?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It is basically in reference to the fact that when they arrived, everything that was happening happened when they were leaving the last world. So it was basically time again means it is the same thing and world means similar world.

Eggheads - S1-E7

Question: What is the specific legal reason why "Nikke" and "Weeties" had to be misspelled, yet the spelling and logo for The Gap is unaltered?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It's just like any product placement in TV or film; the Gap probably granted permission as well as paid for their logo to be featured whereas Nike and Wheaties (General Mills) did not.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Question: Does the beginning of the pilot episode take place on our earth? Or is it left for us to wonder?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It's never said, so the implication is that yes, the one our crew starts from is our Earth.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Question: After Arturo, Wade and Quinn jump into the wormhole, what caused the wormhole to suddenly go outside and send Rembrandt into it?

Answer: Quin wasn't sure how large to make the wormhole to accommodate everyone. He made it too big, which resulted in Rembrandt to drive into it.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Question: In the beginning episode, Quinn's timer will allow him to slide from one dimension to the next before sending him back to his own world. Later, after escaping the frozen world, the timer sends everybody to another dimension rather then back home and continues this way for the rest of the show. What caused this malfunction?

Answer: The warning that his double never got to finish before being sent back to his home dimension was not to speed up the timer. That's what scrambled the timer's coordinates and launched them on the quest to find home.

Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? - S4-E6

Question: In the beginning credits of movies/t.v. shows, when they say "and introducing" followed by the actor's name, it is because it is the 1st acting role for that actor. In this episode when the introduced Quinn's brother, the beginning credits say "and introducing Charlie O'Connell." However he has done other acting roles before he appeared on Sliders. As a matter of fact, he did 2 episodes on Sliders as a different character before he became Quinn's brother. So is there a reason why the actor was "introduced" in this episode?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: Quinn's brother was going to be a recurring character, so "introduced" in this case referred to the actor becoming a semi-regular.

Post Traumatic Slide Syndrome - S2-E8

Question: At the end of the episode, do we know for sure that the right Arturo slid with the others, instead of the Arturo of the world that they were on? Or is it simply meant for us to wonder?

Matty Blast

Answer: The show's creator admitted that it was the wrong Arturo.

Chosen answer: It's left for us to wonder.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Question: In the pilot episode, the wormhole physically travels to "capture" Quinn and bring him back to his own world, after his very first slide. How did the wormhole know where Quinn was?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Remember at first Quinn's timer is working perfectly (it's only because they slide off the ice age world early that it begins to malfunction) & given Quinn's intellect he would have devised a way that he could open a wormhole near him so he wouldn't be trapped on that world for 29 years.

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.
