  • This was one of the worst episodes of the Sliders I've ever seen. The plot was terribly boring and I simply couldn't stop looking at my watch, with the hope it would end quicker than usual.moreless

    I've always liked to watch Sliders. It was an interesting show. But this time is different. I will have to make myself to watch another episode, as I'm afraid the next one will be as crappy as this one.

    I'm really sorry to write this but I'd rather read an extremely boring book than watch this episode again.

    • Title: Electric Twister Acid Test
      The title references the 1968 novel Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe, an early example of New Journalism detailing the roots of the hippie movement. Wolfe writes a pseudo-firsthand account of the exploits of Ken Kesey and his followers as they travel across the U.S. in a psychedelically-painted bus named Furthur.

    • Quinn and Reed's "handshake" near the end of the episode is just like the "skin it" shake done by the boys in the 1986 film Stand By Me - two of whom were played by Jerry O'Connell (Quinn) and Corey Feldman (Reed).

    • Rembrandt: Well if a building does drop on us, I hope it's a Burger Burglar. I've been hungry since the last world!

      This is a reference to the classic movie The Wizard of Oz where a house is dropped by a tornado (twister) onto the Wicked Witch of the East.

    • Rembrandt: Whoa! The Batcave!

      A casual reference to DC Comics masked crimefighter Batman, who lurks about in an underground cave when he's not chasing villains through Gotham City.
