Sliders is kind of an interdimensional Buffy because it has it's own Giles, but better because he's the dwarf dude from LoTR. (idk, maybe professors were kinda common in those kinds of shows back then this is before my time)
@dzuk Sliders is particularly fascinating because for a show that ran a reasonable run You're the first person I've seen mention it in over a decade. Like, no one I've mentioned the show to... ever, I think, has known what it was.
@dzuk Five seasons, a budget, and it had a themed ride at Universal Studios.
@TheGibson Sounds like it'd be worth digging up.
after a few seasons it kinda fell into a formula of
- go to parallel world where X is oppressing Y
- join underground resistance group of Y
- in the process of helping underground resistance group, get to thing/place/ability to help make next jump
kinda wanna rewatch it now but i remember there being a lot of ...pretty awful episodes to get through for only a few gems
