Remember back in March of '95 when "Sliders" was first launched? It was part of a Fox venture called "New Spring Season." Personally, I think that that so-called season brought 3 of the best shows ever on Fox. "Sliders" was one, but does anybody remember "VR5" and "The Critic?" They were fabulous. How Fox could cancel them is beyond me. Of course, "The Critic" returned on Comedy Central, which is horrible because a) My crappy cable company doesn't carry CC, and b) That means it'll never return on network TV. As for "VR5," I don't know. Granted, I'm glad to see "Sliders" back, but I think Fox could do better.

As for "VR5," I don't know. Granted, >I'm glad to see "Sliders" back, but I think Fox could do better. I'm afraid I missed "The Critic" but I loved "VR5". I still find the title "VR5" awkward at best but, I gave the show a chance and couldn't wait until the next week for some more clues. Everyone I talked to didn't seem to get the show and gave up on it. "It was too difficult to follow," they said and weren't surprised to see it missing from Fox's lineup. Sliders though created a stir among everyone and they could understand how Fox could just toss it aside but, does anyone remember what happened to "Quantum Leap" from another network. It seems these shows always need a loyal following to convince the powers to be, who don't seem to get it, that they are worth air time.

Quantum Leap finished off (although they left an opening for movies)rather nicely. In the episode where he found he could leap where he wanted
