1997-04-12 00:00:00 - Continuity: C+ for Effort, but still missed. - ("Brannon \"Ben\" Boren" <brannonb@u.washington.edu>)


I turned this episode on only for the last seven minutes, but still found plenty of continuity troubles! Someone correct me if these apparent flubs were justified in the rest of the episode. I was pleased to see a mention of the Kromaggs. I was sorry that they didn't wrap up the deal with Rickman. If Daltrey (sp?) is never coming back, what's the point? Ace him, and have Maggie keep Sliding with the group anyway (it can be justified). ? Continuity: 1. It's weird to assume The Smarter Quinn who gave Our Quinn the formula (which incidentally, Our Quinn had already made a slide without, so exactly what was it for anyhow?), has somehow become a shell of a man after "losing his friends" because: a. He was sliding alone anyway when he met Our Quinn. b. He wasn't sliding randomly, he had control. c. Wouldn't his concern be more for his WIFE (he said he has been married two years in the premiere) rather than his friends? d. How the HELL can he know this Quinn is one he gave the formula to? e. He would have to be a moron to have given the Kromaggs Sliding, after seeing their culture (had to throw that in) - if it was an accident or they stole it, he should have said that. 2. How can the Smarter Quinn be responsible for the Kromaggs ability to slide? They've been conqering worlds for a lot longer than three years if Mary was taken to the Kromagg World when she was FIVE. I have forgotten to watch Sliders for two weeks in a row now. That never used to happen. It IS nice to see them trying to refer back to things that happened before, as long as they get them RIGHT. It's simply not that hard. And what was with Wade's comment re: Maggie - "We drafted her." I recall Maggie saying she was coming, and the Sliders basically saying "Whatever." Oh well.

Maggie overheard this. Maggie wanted to split up and continue looking for Rickman and one of the other Sliders said something about them being a team. Maggie said something like obviously she wasn't considered part of the team and Remy said "You've just been drafted." I don't know if this is completely accurate, but I hope it helps claify Wade's comment. Rachel (using her sister's account)
