Sliders Ended Two Seasons Too Early

LOS ANGELES—Sliders, the science-fiction series that followed a group of adventurers who used a space-time wormhole to “slide” between parallel universes, ended its five-year run much too soon and with unresolved questions, show creator Robert Weiss said, unprompted, to literally nobody Tuesday.

Weiss, who spoke out loud for nearly four and a half hours as if there were other people in his general vicinity, noted that the series never had network support, and that seasons six and seven would have brought the Jerry O’Connell vehicle to a proper close.

Sliders was canceled in 2000.

“Two seasons—44 more episodes—that’s all we needed,” Weiss said as he sat alone in his Los Angeles home, his voice echoing off the living room walls. “So many threads were left hanging: Sure we know Quinn’s mom is safe, but how safe? After Rembrandt injected himself with the virus, was he able to kill the Kromaggs?”

“Another season also would have given us the chance to explore the fanatical religion of Slidology further,” added Weiss, who was more than 600 yards away from the nearest human being. “Much further.”

According to Weiss, who even gesticulated as if he were engaging another person in a face-to-face conversation, the producer could have used the extra seasons to return the show to its alternate-history roots.
