Sliders is one of the coolest original shows that began airing this decade. Somebody give me a CLUE as to why the show has apparently changed timeslots again. After 1st season, I thought it was cancelled due to lack of interest. Then, to my delight, it began a 2nd season. BUT, just like 1st season, the assholes at FOX have moved it to another time/day, this time from Friday evenings to who knows when! Will someone please tell me when the show's on NOW? Can somebody tell me what those fucks at FOX are doing and why? Thanks... Peace. (fschott@cris.com)

Space: Above & Beyond is getting a tryout in the Fri 8pm timeslot-- apparently it hasn't done well in the Sun 7pm one, and FOX wants to see if a better slot will bump up the ratings. FOX is no doubt also doing this to ration out the new episodes of Sliders over a longer period, which SUCKS. I bet they get into a habit of bumping Sliders for other stupid shows, if it stays in that timeslot. If you're going to space out the new eps, FOX, for chrissakes give us reruns of the better Sliders episodes from last year in place of them! I hate when my favorite shows get moved to a weekend night, because I'm never home then and have to tape them. I don't know how the Nielsen system works-- does it count as watching a show if you tape it? If not, I'm sorry to say the fans with SOCIAL LIVES are going to be the death of Sliders. ~Philly <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> Michael J.

Calm down there, chum... it's not gone, it hasn't moved, and if you'd paid attention to FOX instead of swearing about them, you'd know that Sliders is only being temporarily (April 12,19) replaced by Space: Above & Beyond. Sure it sucks, but hey, it'll be back soon enough - April 26 - in the same Friday 8 PM (eastern) time slot. From there, it should run straight through May and June, with the exception of one preemption sometime in May by Secrets of the X-files or something like that. So you can rest easy now.

It's only on haitus for a couple of weeks while Fox borrows the timeslot to attempt to save Space:Above and Beyond. Sliders will be back at 8 PM Fridays in time for May sweeps. Geo

Also, the week after, instead of Obsession is aparently going to be Post Traumatic Slide Syndrome (from the director, Adam Nimoy, who was mentioned as the director for that weeks episode in a press release,and the title makes more sense given the plot I heard) Peter Dimitriadis

But I do know what the very intelligent FOX executives who have made their network succeed have done. FOX has decided to try out "Space Above and Beyond" in the Friday 8 pm slot to try to see if another slot would increase its ratings. It should be obvious that a sci-fi show would be a good lead in for the popular "X-Files" show, and could be a determination as to whether or not S A&B gets renewed. Of course if it gets incredibly high ratings, then I'd start to worry about how well Sliders is doing .... FOX didn't order an entire season of episodes for Sliders since it was shoehorned in as a replacement series, and one which didn't start until March. So there are too many weeks to fill, and not enough episodes. So it's logical to substitute some other series where appropriate rather than having unending repeats (how many times did we see some of the "Star Trek: Voyager" episodes during the first season??) In any case, here's the entire "Sliders" schedule for new episodes for this year, from the SCI-FI Entertainment mailing list: Sliders Season Two (FOX) (Fridays at 8 pm ET/PT 7 pm CT/MT) http://www.brillig.com/sliders/ Airdate Ep # Title --------------------------------------- 3/01/96 11 Into the Mystic 3/08/96 12 Love Gods 3/15/96 13 Gillian of the Spirits 3/22/96 14 The Good, the Bad and the Wealthy [A Fistful of Stock Options] 3/29/96 15 El Sid 4/05/96 16 Time Again and World 4/12/96 [pre-empted by Space: Above and Beyond] 4/19/96 [pre-empted by Space: Above and Beyond] 4/26/96 17 In Dino Veritas Estimated 5/03/96 18 Obsession 5/10/96 [pre-empted by "More Secrets of the X-Files"] TBD 19 Invasion TBD 20 Post Traumatic Slide Syndrome TBD 21 Ranger, Poacher TBD 22 Greatfellas TBD 23 [Season Finale] Philip Chien, Earth News - space writer and consultant PCHIEN@IDS.NET __ __^__ __________ | \ +---/ \---+ (========= |____\___________ +---\_____/---+ // >____)| | \__ \ \______//___ >/ |________| \ [ _____\ >|____________________\ \_______/ Roger, go at throttle up CHR$(32) the final frontier
