    If they can bring Battlestar Galactic to DVD, I'd like to see Sliders?

    Sliders is on the same original press release as BSG, but none of those sets have had a word since. It's not a question of if, it's a question of WHEN Universal is sold, THEN there will be sliders

    Well Universal orginally announced sliders was in the works at the same time they did galactica. Along with a bunch of other tv product. But who knows when they will get around to releasing it.

    Yeah i will only be buying up till S3. I caught some of S4 and S5 and it was pretty bad. The only thing of interest to me from S5 is apparently there is a Wade voice over somewhere not sure if it's the last episode or what. I've never seen it though and i can't justify buying a set just for that.

    I'm just going to stick with the first season, which was, for the most part, excellent.

    I lost interest sometime in season 2 and only caught a few episodes here and there until the series disappeared. Did they finially make it home ("they" meaning whoever was left of the orginial sliders. Some of the later shows i've seen had different cast members.)

    They did make it back to Earth Prime, but it'd been taken over by Kromaggs.

    Arturo leaves mid season 3, Wade left after season 3, Quinn left after 4 (taking his tagalong charity job brother the horrific actor with him) and Remy was the only one to make it all the way through.

    I loved seasons 1 & 2, season 3 made me very suspicious as they seemed to be going to monster of the week worlds rather than anything with an interesting historical/sociological story. Then, they brought in the Kromaggs. I'll be stopping at three.

    Any news on the release of the sliders dvds?

    Here in Australia I don't believe this show is screening on either FTA or cable. I used to watch this show every week, but unfortunately have only seen each episode in its original FTA airing.

    Hopefully we get some news on this soon. It would also be great if season one and two (~22 episodes) were released as one boxed set.

    Nothing heard here yet. [​IMG]

    You would think they would want to kick this off while John Rhys Davies is so hot right now from Rings.
