FOX (ended 2000)
How about if the Sliders landed in a world where the Nazi would have won WWII, or, maybe an episode where Italian Renaissancehad never ended?
The WWII has been done too many times on other shows and similarly on Sliders (like soviet America). The Italien Renaissance is a neat idea!
Here's an idea:
The Sliders in Season 2 slide to a San Fransisco where Quinn meets his double but he looks nothing like him. (maybe played by an O'Connell cousin actor). Quinn2 is freaked out when he 1st meets them, then helps them out by giving them food and shelter at his home, but they can't enter a locked room. At 1st he avoids the Professor, then he warms up to him and wants to spend all his time with him.
Quinn2 keeps making excuses and doesn't seem to want to help them with some technical Timer problem. Wade realizes that Quinn2 doesn't want the Professor to leave. But then he's gone and so is the timer!
With the countdown at 40 minutes, they ask Quinn to think like his double, but he says they're too different. Finally, Remy breaks into the locked room and finds old framed pictures of Quinn2 with his dad: Maximiliian Arturo.
Quinn and the Professor figure the place that connected them was the University so they go and find him in the lab. But 40 minutes already passed and they missed their sliding window. Quinn2 explains that his mother died long ago and he created a timer for his father, but Professor 2 slid without him and disappeared. He asks Professor to stay with him, but Arturo says he already has a family, looking at Quinn1, Wade, and Remy.
Quinn2 apologizes, opens the vortex, and hands them the timer! They're confused but enter the gateway. Arturo asks Quinn2 to go but he says there isn't enough energy for him, so they slide without him.
On the next world, they realize Quinn2 had modified the timer so that they were able to reopen the vortex 10 minutes after it's initial countdown, but it drained so much energy that there wasn't room for him.
This episode would explain how, in some later episodes, they open the vortex way too late and it still works!
That's an interesting idea a sort of fail safe device if the timer runs out of time. Could you name me an episode then where they opened up the portal too late?
Thanks, glad you liked it!
They never acknowledged such, but so many times they'd say like, "Less than a minute!" as they're being chased by bad guys. then like 2 minutes later they find each other and open the portal.
Well its more exciting then waiting around ten minutes, All the time in the world you guys. Who want's to get something to eat? Hey did you know that the prices are very low in this dimension?
There where some episodes where i counted off with the timer, but they we're clearly too late. Or was it that after the timer hits zero they could still open up the portal?
Sliders gang land on world where everyone knows about them, they star in their own movies in this world XD
I made a comic strip about this LOL
Cool! PLease post the comic on your profile page then tell us!
