And, at the end, Rembrandt was told he had a great heart, the Professor, courage, and then there was the quest for Quinn's brain...but...where WAS Toto?

Just sitting here wondering how many other SLIDERS fans caught the mild parallel between the episode Into The Mystic and the WIZARD OF OZ. Here's a list of simularities I think where shown: Long Journey 3 Men and a Girl The Man behind the Curtain (ok Room) Quest for Item (Blueprints) and There's NO Place like HOME!!! Later Fellow Sliders Lord Thorkill Lord & Master of all that I survey LORD THORKILL thorkill@voicenet.com The British Comedy Homepage Monty Python, Black Adder and many more! http://www.voicenet.com/~thorkill

Okay, as a long-time "Oz" fan and member of the International Wizard of Oz Club, I picked up a few more: * The guy named Mr. Gale. Gale is Dorothy's last name in both the books and movie. * The travelers make someone mad, so of course their quest takes them BACK to that person so the Wizard/Sorcerer can get what he wants. * The black-and-white opening. But THAT was a dream, and the bits in color were reality. (They were reversed in the movie. But Oz wasn't a dream in the books...) --Eric "If any of my Oz friends come up with other similarities, I'll post 'em here" Gjovaag -- *** WATCH THE NEW "DOCTOR WHO" TELEVISION MOVIE, COMING TO FOX *** *** TELEVISION IN MAY, STARRING PAUL McGANN AS THE EIGHTH DOCTOR ***

And any fan of the ORIGINAL L. Frank Baum book can tell you what Dorothy's last name was.. (For all you non-readers out there, it was Gail, the same as Sorcerer-Quinn's evil assistant.)

You missed the most obvious parallel. When each Slider was saying goodbye to the Sorcerer, they mentioned the same four things Dorothy, the Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow did: going home, courage (the Latin-speaking between the Sorcerer and Arturo), the Crying Man having a heart, and lastly, Quiinn saying "I owe you my brain." And didn't you see the Flying Monkeys???? > Lord & Master of all that I survey > LORD THORKILL > thorkill@voicenet.com > The British Comedy Homepage > Monty Python, Black Adder and many more! > http://www.voicenet.com/~thorkill
