  • Small Town Tremers

    8.0
    The Sliders land on a world with giant, mutant worm. The worm lives just outside a small town, and oozes out a black substance whenever it snacks on humans. Yummy!



    The townspeople feed the worm "undesirables" and eat the black substance in order to live a long life, while looking young.



    The town's grim wellness plan is stopped by the Sliders and a friendly geologist.



    This is a fun Sliders episode - with a hat tip to the Tremers film - and marks the final episode for the original Sliders cast.



    The cast and tone of the Sliders series would change, starting with the two-part "Exodus" episode.



    "Paradise Lost" has much of the show's original humor and banter among the Sliders.



    Granted, the episode does not show much of this parallel world, suggesting only a few differences from the original, Earth Prime.



    The mutated worm is pregnant, but only exists in this small town.



    Could it really remain a closely guarded secret since the 1940s?



    Their is some mention of a US-American border dispute, but otherwise this episode avoids showing the audience much about this new world, beyond the small town.



    Overall, "Paradise Lost" is a well written, fun, season 3, Sliders episode.
