Production[eedit | eedit soorce]

Michio Kaku expleens in i appendix o his beuk, I Futur o I Mind, 'at i Sliders programme began "fan æ rawly callant rade æ beuk. 'At beuk is actualli my beuk Hyperspace, bit A tak næ wyte fur i naitural philosphy ahint 'at programme."[1]

File picturin i episode "Desert Storm", actor Ken Steadman (Cutter) wis kilt. In æ amshach 'at occurit atweesh takes, Steadman muived æ dune buggy tæ i naist shuitin location. Fan he wis muivin i vehicle, i dune buggy owerturnt an crushit him, killin him instantli. Accordin tæ Steadman's paurents, his deith wis forfendable[2].

Gæin intæ i fifth season, i production team kent i programme wisnæ bein renewt an hæd sauft money fæ i budget o ilk season five episode fur uise in æ climactic fecht fur i season finale. I money wis insteud usit fur i penultimate episode, "Ee o i Storm", file i last episode endit wi æ unresolvit clinthanger. Insiders hæ various theories as tæ fit wye 'is happent. I producers were concernt 'at i Sci Fi Channel hæd last interest in i shaw (e'en tho hit wis thair heichmaist-ratit program at i tim) efter thay devault giein corrective notes fur i episodes, an hit wis believit thay werenæ e'en readen i scripts[3].

Een strict rule i Sci Fi Channel hæd wis 'at æ gun couldnæ be pointit at æ person's heid. Tæ test i rule, executive producer Bill Dial presentit æ script faiturin æ chairacter gettin his heid shot clean aff — fit wis ignorit. Dial then presentit i script fur i final episode clinthanger, fit was ignort an aw. Some claim 'is wis done tæ herten fans tæ push fur æ saxt season, bit members o i production team claim 'at i deceesion wis personal[3].

Iranian-American director Reza Badiyi is creditit wi directin æ nummer o i episodes in i fift season, an his dochter, Mina Badiyi, maks æ guest appearance in Episode 3, "Common Grund".

Chingin Cast an Crew[eedit | eedit soorce]

Sliders hæd æ turbulent history due tæ changes in i cast an crew thro hits run. Cleavant Derricks is i ainly cast memmer tæ stay wi i programme ootthrou hits hale run. Derricks an Linda Henning (Mrs. Mallory) ur i ainly actors tæ appear in baith i first an last episodes o i programme. Derricks' sel an same twin, Clinton Derricks-Carroll, appeart in i episodes "I Keeng Is Agin", "Greatfellas", an "I Prince o Slides", fan 'ere wis æ need fur Rembrandt an his dooble tæ interact.

Third Season Transeetions[eedit | eedit soorce]

Jerry O'Connell felt i first twa seasons went smoothly, bit syne thare wis a signeeficant shift in creative direction o i programme wi i third season, wi i Fox network desirin hit tae be a mair action-orientit shaw insteid o thoucht-provokin[4]. John Rhys-Davies wis i first star o i programme tæ leave. Rhys-Davies statit in a 2016 interview 'at he haed been critical o foo the shaw wis written, callin i concept fit "coud've been i best shaw on i telly", bit maist o i scripts he had buin gied were "incomprehensible gibberish" an misst i scowth o i concept. He citit 'at Fox hæd exertit ower muckle control on i scripts as pairt o i reason fur his depairtur[5].

In a 2014 interview at i Toulouse Game Show, Rhys-Davies statit 'at i inabeeliti tae get writers 'at haed read science fiction in i first place haed led tae i shaw's dounfaw, an thair inexperience in i area led tae i shaw aft repurposing idees fae aither wirks. He said, "We dæd ae episode leik Tremors, een leik Twister, een leik The Night of the Living Dead an e'en een leik Doctor Moreau's Island, uisin i film's oreeginal fauce faces!" He foond i writers were juist "lootin" these idees raider than uisin thaim as ae tribute, airtin tæ een episode far Quinn needit tae cross ae invisible brig an on approachin i writer aboot hit, discovert he haed neer seen Indiana Jones an i Last Crusade 'at Rhys-Davies haed starred in, an simply uised i idee insteid o toyin wi i meta naitur o i scene[6].

Fur Rhys-Davies, "i brekin pint fur me wis fan A walkit in an saw i writers sittin aroond leukin at ae DVD o Species 'at haed juist been releasit an sayin: 'Leuk, we coud tak a bit o that scene there an a bit o that scene there.'"[7]

I programme co-creator, Tracy Tormé, hæs aft been critical o i direction i programme teuk in i third season[8]. Tormé callt i third season twa-parter "Exodus" "een o i warst pieces o televeesion e'er producit, an i law pint o i hale programme"[9]. David Peckinpah wis broucht antæ i programme in i third season (aroond i tim fan Tormé stairtit tæ criticise i shaw). I last episode tæ be screivit bi Tormé wis K1803, "I Gairdian", an i first tæ be screivit bi Peckinpah wis K1815, "Murther Maist Fool". Some argie Peckinpah's involvement in i programme (an bi extension Fox's mair haunds-on involvement) hæd causit i shaw tæ "jump i shark"[10], despite new executive producer Marc Scott Zicree's decision tæ restore Tracy Tormé's oreeginal "alternate history" premise fur i programme in season 4. Tormé, wi co-creators Robert K. Weiss an John Landis an aw, aw departit i shaw durin i third season[4].

Pairt o Fox's involvement in i third season wis tæ shift production fæ Vancouver tæ Los Angeles tæ reduce filmin costs. I recurrin characters were droppt due tæ i expense o fleein thaim fæ Vancouver tæ Los Angeles fur filmin. Bartender Elston Diggs wis broucht in as æ recurrin character fur sax episodes, bit Peckinpah eventualli rejectit i concept. Logan St. Clair wis creatit tæ be æ recurrin character, evident in i episode's twa haundit crack, bit ainli appeart wance. Fox dædnæ believe she wis "sexy" eneuch an requestit she dænæ appear again[11].

Cancellation bi Fox an Pickup bi Sci-Fi[eedit | eedit soorce]

Fox cancellt i shaw aifter i third season, bit hit wis later pickt up bi i Sci-Fi network. Jerry O'Connell felt 'at Sci-Fi wis leukin tæ maintain i action-based shaw wi mair virr on derker sci-fi elements[4]. Lloyd decidit tæ næ return tæ i programme fan hit wis revived, accordin tæ her agency. Æ soorce[12] came forward claimin Lloyd wis firet acause she wis jealous o Kari Wuhrer. Universal an Lloyd's agent baith refusit tæ comment an i rumour spread[12].

Æ muckle file later hit wis revealt 'at Lloyd an Wuhrer dædnæ get along, primarily due tæ some snide commends Wuhrer hæd made aboot Lloyd's engagement tæ æ crew memmer. As Peckinpah wantit tæ return tæ i 3 male/1 female dynamic o i first twa seasons, hit wis decidit Lloyd wis næ længer requiret efter she hæd askit fur æ raise[12]. Her character's fate—tæ be trappit in æ Kromagg breedin camp—wis allegedli Peckinpah's idea, an een 'at was pushit throu bi him alane[12].

As æ result o public dwang tæ elaborate on fit happent tæ Wade efter she disappeart, i producers hæd askt Lloyd tæ guest star in een season five episode 'at wis tæ focus entirely on Wade (ithoot i rest o i cast)[13]. Lloyd requestit $40,000 tæ appear, i sam per-episode salary Derricks wis receivin an $20,000 maire 'an Wuhrer, an i idee wis scrappit[12]. Awtho, i episode she wis tæ appear in, "Requiem", wis "fine tuned" tæ answer i quaisten ithoot her[13]. Lloyd ultimately providit voiceovers fur i episode, an æ stand-in wis uisit.

Bi i end o i fourth season, Jerry an Charlie O'Connell left i programme tæ pursue pictur careers. Jerry O'Connell felt 'at ithoot Lloyd, Rhys-Davies, an Tormé, much o i shaw's oreeginal premise wis gane, an optit tæ lea[4]. I bridders leain i shaw upset mony fans an Tracy Tormé wis askit fit coud be done tæ win thaim back. 'Is resultit in æ unsuccessful effort tæ bring back some popular previously recurrin characters[11].

I producers negotiatit wi' John Novak (Ross J. Kelly, i ambulance-chasin lawer), Alex Bruhanski (Pavel Kurlienko, i taxi driver) an Lester Barrie (Elston Diggs, i waiter at i Chandler Hotel) fur thair return in season five. Zoe McLellan (Logan St. Clair) wis schedulit tæ appear again an Jason Gaffney (Conrad Bennish, Jr) fæ season een wis confirmit fur fower episodes, includin i season finale[11]. Houe're, nane o thaim appearit.

I Fox Network airt certain episodes fæ seasons een an twa in æ differ order 'an originally scriptit tæ best capitalise on scowth ratins-winnin episodes, thus causin some continuity mislearins. Fur ensaumple, i timr is first set tæ coont doon no in i pilot episode, bit in "Simmer o Lue"— tho syne Fox airt "Fever" richt efter i pilot episode mony viewers were left confusit as tæ fit wye i Sliders suddenly hæd tæ lea inby æ verra speceefic speal.

Fur season twa, Fox dædnæ wint tæ resolve i cliffhanger at i end o "Luck o i Draw", preferrin tæ focus insteid on brand-new storylines. Thus, in "Tim An Warld An Aw" (i first episode filmed fur Season Twa), Arturo maks æ brief passing reference tæ i events o "Luck o i Draw." 'Is misst clinthanger wis particularly significant as i episode hæd endit wi' Quinn bein shot in i back. Tracy Tormé successfully petitioned fur æ chance tæ resolve i clinthanger, tho, at is briefly dealt wi in i openin meenits o "Intæ I Meestic" (i third episode filmed, bit i first tæ air 'at season) far i life-thritenin wound is nou merely æ scrat in his shouther, allowin fur æ quick recovery.
