1995: Fox Debuts 'Sliders'
March 22, 2021  | By TV WW  | 1 comment
 
This day in 1995 marked the debut of the Fox sci-fi series, Sliders.

The series starred Jerry O'Connor as a graduate student who discovers a vortex that allows humans to travel to parallel universes. Co-stars included John Rhys-Davies as Quinn's mentor, Professor Arturo; Sabrina Lloyd as his friend, Wade; and Cleavant Derricks as a stranger who is accidentally pulled into a vortex and is forced to travel from universe to universe with the others.

The series ran three seasons on Fox, and then moved to cable's Sci-Fi (now SyFy) Channel, enduring several cast changes along the way, including the additions of Kari Wuhrer and Charlie O'Connell (Jerry's real-life brother) and the exit of Rhys-Davies and Lloyd. (The O'Connell brothers were both gone by the show's fifth and final season.)

This show had so much potential but never came close to realizing it. It could have been an even better version of Quantum Leap but got sidetracked with silly plot lines.
