Man, are you observant. I'm from the SF Bay Area and the snow on the ground drives me crazy. The last time it snowed here (flatland)was the '75 '76 winter. I'm gonna have to start watching the background for SF inconsistencies. Well, I'm unemployed for a bit; wonder how many eps I can dig up on tape?

Yeah, I've noticed that too. I also liked seeing what looked to be a Royal Bank and BC plates on cars... -- -= Chameleon -=- Chameleon Graphics -=- Chris Dunham =- -= E-mail: mailto:chameleo@ebtech.net PowWow: powwow://chameleo@ebtech.net =- -= Wuggie's Realm: http://www2.ebtech.net/~chameleo/frames.htm =- -= Fortune Teller 3000: http://www.symmetrix.ch/Public/Chameleon/ =- -= Chameleon's Archives: http://www.student.toplinks.com/hp/chameleo/ =- -= WugRealm Enhanced: http://members.tripod.com/~Chameleo/index.htm =- -= Wuggie's Realm USA: http://www.geocities.com/Athens/5981/ =-

Other Vancouver sites that I've spotted in sliders include the downtown skyline, the Scotiabank building, Canada Place, Science World, Granville Island, the Lion's Gate Bridge and the University of British Columbia campus. I've even been in that dome that Mary, the Kromagg's slave used as her garden. I forget what it's called, but I'm sure someone will come up with the proper name.

For people who live in or have visited Vancouver, I'm sure they always get a kick out of watching Sliders. Although Vancouver does resemble San Francisco in many respects, I have to laugh when I see a Canada Post truck or mailbox in the background and a gas station with the price posted in litres.

Yeah, that was the Blodel Conseratory up in Queen Elizabeth Park. And they used Playland--I could see Coaster in the background of the Kromagg episode. And they used Doppler's computer store, of course. And I think I saw the corner of Oak in Love Gods. And Stanley Park or Q.E. Park in the Pilot. You get the idea.
