Episode Guide and Reviews
Broadcast order (First Air Date) is given according to how it was being broadcast on Italia UNO with the italian series title Viaggiatori which seems to be the correct intended order. It will not agree with the US broadcast order, however it looks more similar to the production order, at least as far as the first season is concerned. In Europe, Yorin on 31/7/2001 showed the final episode of Season 5.
Sliders was rebroadcast on german channels RTL II and Kabel 1. AXN Sci-Fi on Polsat was rebroadcasting the 1st season of Sliders with a new theme and intro…
The series SLIDERS originally originated on March 22 1995 on the Fox Television Network in the USA. After airing for three seasons, it moved to the Sci-Fi channel with new episodes. A loyal core following was built while it was broadcast on Fox. My initial thoughts on the first episode were that the series shows potential. The series was created by Robert K. Weiss and Tracy Torme (the latter is usually associated with Star Trek, I believe).
In Italy it was broadcast as “I VIAGGIATORI” (meaning The Travellers), while in Spain it is broadcast as “SALTO AL INFINITO” (meaning Jump To Infinity).
