I watched the first 3 seasons of Sliders on Hulu because I missed it when it originally aired. Unfortunately they didn’t have seasons 4 and 5. I found it on Netflix, but I hate watching tv shows on my computer. I had my computer plugged into the TV when I watched Caprica, but that was a pain because it was always going out of sync. I got a new Sony Blu-Ray player for my birthday so I took that as the perfect opportunity to finally watch Sliders because the Blu-Ray player has internet channels like Netflix and Hulu Plus among others.
I was sad when the professor died in the 3rd season and I wasn’t sure if I would like the new girl whose planet blew up and she was forced to go with the sliders, but I found that I fell in love with her in season 4. I was really sad that Wade wasn’t in season 4, but I was thrilled that Charlie O’Connell, Jerry O’Connell’s real life brother joined the cast as his brother Colin Mallory. I loved the 4th season of Sliders. I have to admit that I spent a LOT of time looking at Charlie, he is hot LOL.
I have already seen the first few episodes of the 5th and final season of Sliders and I think it’s ok, but I’m kinda miffed that Jerry and Charlie O’Connell aren’t in it anymore. I thought that it was lame that they replaced Quinn with his alternate universe version who doesn’t look a thing like him, like he’s a Quinn’s fraternal twin LOL.
Tembi Locke (from Eureka) is in season 5 as a scientist named Dr. Diana Davis. I guess since our new Quinn isn’t a genius, they needed to add another genius to the cast to do the things this new Quinn cannot do. And they aren’t calling him Q-ball or even Quinn, they are calling him Mallory.
I almost didn’t watch season 5 because the only person that is left in the show is Rembrandt, but on the other hand, I love that Tembi Locke is in it so I think I will keep watching it until the end.
What is the plot of this new cast anyway? I mean, the plot was originally to find their way back to their own universe, but now Rembrandt is the only one who wants to find his own, but they were already there and it has been taken over by an alien species known as the Kromags. His world is now ruined so he has no reason to go back, except for wanting to be with his family of course. Maggie has no home so wherever she goes is home. Diana and Mallory, well I don’t know if they even want to go back to their home. So what is the purpose now besides trying to stop the Kromags?
Anyway, I guess I will find out when I finish the 5th season. I think it’s still a good show despite the fact that the original cast is all gone and it was replaced with 3 new people. I’m glad at least one of them is still original lol.
By the way, can I just say how Maggie looks almost exactly like the woman who plays the evil queen in ABC’s Once Upon A Time? I already checked, they aren’t the same person, but they could be twins. Hmmmm, twins from a different universe perhaps?
