I think the Sliders show was way ahead of the curve at the time. Simply put the show probably died because the plots were basically of the same linear design. And most of the effects were lame. But i enjoyed the show though it was great most of the time you actually really got into the story up until the when they left. But throughout the entire series they all ended the same and started the same. And they never really mention the previous episode. And what was the deal with the cromags near the end? Also it kinda sucked they didn't finish the series the right way since it was canceled .
