Quite simply, if you do not know which episode to which this post refers and it would "spoil" your fun to have a surprise's edge taken off, then read no further. Well, now I think I understand what Rhys-Davies has been going on about. It seems obvious that the Arturo that our Sliders are stuck with is the slimey one. I don't see this as a bad development as long as they don't carry it on for more than 4 or 5 episodes. Why? Well, I think that by leaving their Professor stuck in a dimension where he may be able to do them some good. He is stuck on a world where he should be able to amass the resources to conduct extensive research in Sliding. I mean look what his double has left set up for him. All he has to do is play the role and organize the brains. What I would envision is a season finale where the "real" Arturo catches up to them and he is able to do this because the research that has gone on has allowed him to construct "enhancements" to the timer that will tell you if you are "home". Also, allows him to track the other Sliders from his world which is how he catches up to the others. This same tracking function also allows him to tell if anyone else is from their universe. Could explain this development as Arturo wasn't going to foolishly go chasing after them unless he could be quite sure they were the right ones. Also, he could arrive with a Sliding "kit" including spare timer parts and "batteries". He also has enhancements for the timer. Arturo's research has only been able to show that their best odds of getting home is with the original timer. However, it would be amusing to have Arturo relate that he did make make it home in a test Slide of Quinn's original equipment but the "recall" effect yanked him back to "Blue Bridge" world. "By the way, Mr. Mallory, she fixed the gate." would be a great throw away line. The tracking function Arturo's gang came up with would be interesting because for him to catch up to the others would mean that now they introduce slides to worlds where others from their universe such as Bennish or the FBI have Slid(ed?). But obviously only this and not the coveted "home" slide. --

He also has enhancements for the timer. He should bring duct tape and stick the timer to his belly so it won't get lost. Spare parts are easy to find, all you need are a few watches and VCR remotes. > >Arturo's research has only been able to show that their best odds of >getting home is with the original timer. > >However, it would be amusing to have Arturo relate that he did make >make it home in a test Slide of Quinn's original equipment but the >"recall" effect yanked him back to "Blue Bridge" world.

Imagine our Bennish meeting his square double from Hippie World. Coot >-- >

When he realized that if the Timer did not Slide again this time, it would never work again, he HAD to Slide. Without a WORKING Timer he could not fill in his gaps in Sliding Theory. Keeping the Timer on his world was a guarantee that it would no longer work! --
