As Time Goes By.... I'd hardly say the episode sucked - but it could definitely have been better. In particular, I didn't like the massive dangling end left at the end of the episode - I mean the "Hole in the fabric of time" by Quinn - it seems like there are enough loose ends without adding one more! One week we have the Kromaggs, and then all of a sudden -boom- we also have a big hole in the fabric of time. One thing I would definitely like to see - more involvement of Rembrandt and Wade in the plots (to quote Wade in Invasion, "Why do they get to have all the fun!" I'd also like to see Rembrandt quit whining! There has been a lot of messages about which show Sliders most closely resembles (the favorite being Quantum Leap). Actually, the series most resembles a crossover comic book series run by DC Comics many years ago. The title of the series was "Crisis on Infinite Earths" and involved all of the heroes on Earth Prime (Superman, Batman and such) along with all sorts of heroes from other earths (including other versions of Superman and Batman). The problem was that there were infinite earths instead of just one; the plot was to "clean up" the continuity of the DC Universe, leaving only one earth at the end (Earth Prime, of course!). You can't beat that for similarities! -Doug Reed dreed@panda.uchc.edu

Nah, I don't think Sliders is similar to "Crisis" at all. In "Crisis" there was some huge parallel-world battle going on leading all the heroes from all the worlds to band together. Don't see that happening in Sliders. The only similarity is the premise of parallel Earths -- a concept that Marv Wolfman and the boys at DC didn't create on their own. Greg
