Summary of "Season 3 - Come slide with me...": My thoughts on season 3 are both good, and bad. I think there were a number of good episodes ("Rules of the Game" was a lot of fun), but I was bummed by the cast change. The original characters worked really well together, but the newcomer also provided some interesting material. This was the last season the show aired on Fox; it jumped to Sci-Fi for seasons 4 and 5.
There's quite a bit of controversy surrounding the extras on this set, or possible extras. Apparently members of one fan site supplied Universal with the gag reel, but they didn't really have much else for the third season, while another fan site that wasn't contacted was sitting on a pile of material, and willing to supply it for free. Hopefully all the parties will be able to sort things out for the fourth season, and we may see more bonus material. There's a rather heated discussion on the Sci-Fi boards regarding the extras, and some fighting between some of the fans sites. I won't link directly to it, but I'd suggest checking it out if you're at all interested. There's lots of banter back and forth, and nothing productive comes from it.
Fans complained when the first set was released at $89.98, and Universal must have been listening. They announced this one at $59.98, and also plan to reduce the first set to match. (read entire review)
Seasons 1 & 2 - I wonder if they have DVDs on an alternate Earth... (7/31/2004)
Summary of " Seasons 1 & 2 - I wonder if they have DVDs on an alternate Earth...": I thought Sliders was a cool concept when I first heard about it, and I think the show lived up to my expectations. I'm not sure I liked how the show took a turn near the end of the second season, but I still stuck with it for a few seasons when it was on. I didn't catch the final season or two, so I hope this set sells well enough to justify the release of the other seasons.
When this set was first announced there were some fans grumbling about the price. $89.98 is expensive for 22 episodes, but it could be much worse. Talk to a Northern Exposure fan who dished out $60 for the first 8 episodes of the show, and is looking at $60 for the 7 episodes of season 2 and you'll consider yourself lucky you're only paying $90 for the two combined seasons.
Universal continues to deliver cool shows, interesting packaging and quality transfers on DVD. Sliders might not be one of the most popular sci-fi shows, but it has a following, and the fans will be picking up this set on August 3rd. (read entire review)
