Sliders: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Sliders: Season 1 (1995)




Critic Consensus: Sliders makes the most of its simple premise with an inventive sense of adventure, a well-rounded cast of characters, and a healthy balance of humor.


Tv Season Info

A brilliant grad student accidentally opens an interdimensional portal, which sends him and three reluctant companions on a cosmic roller-coaster ride to alternate Earths. This sci-fi actioner, distinctive more for its wry humor than the so-so special effects and sets, survived several cast changes and even a switch of networks.

Critic Reviews for Sliders: Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Among the new spring series I've seen, Sliders stands out as the most enjoyable. ''What-might-have-been'' is usually a pointless exercise, but here it makes for some rousing entertainment.

The show is smart and its premise unique, plus it adds in just the right level of comedy to lighten the mood at appropriate times without resorting to corniness.

This latest arrival is a tasty junk-food morsel, with a light touch that makes it quite digestible.

Maybe if you're 15, living in mom's basement and obsessed with wormholes, you'll find a laugh or two in the scenario. As for me, I was checking the press release to see if tonight's pilot was really two hours long. It is.

It's funny, witty, and self-aware.

"Sliders" has some serious themes but mostly is delivered in an entertaining, lighthearted fashion.
