Wow...stirred up emotions...it's so hard to string together a full coherent thought. I'm not sure if i should feel sad, nostalgic, happy, or just say that this is just what i needed! The format was perfect, too. It took a little bit of getting used to, but by the end of it i didn't even notice. I have to agree with you on so many account in the note at the end. I watched Sliders with my dad a few years ago, and when my dad told me they never got home (i just had to ask) i said that they should come out with one last episode, where it's been many years (present day, or they could all be old) and they finally, FINALLY made it home. That way there could be one last adventure, complete with a happy ending. But then Arturo died, and characters came and went, and then 'the Seer' came and there went that idea. My mom and step-dad watched it recently, and though i didn't see any of it, by just hearing a sentence or two of dialog i instantly knew what episode they were on until they reached the end. Anyway, obviously my idea wouldn't work, so i really wish one of yours was possible! I'm just afraid that Sliders has been forgotten by media today...

This is how the series should have ended then.
Just one thing...
Why would the Kromags want Quinn's world's sliding technology? Theirs is better. Way more advanced.

Thanks for the words. This story probably wouldn't work in prose: script allows for a more visual approach and also skips through tiresome exposition by selective scene-cuts.
A properly script-formatted version of this story can be found at doc/73421449/
The lack of response is likely because only a small number of people watched Seasons 3 - 5 or remember them. This script is incomprehensible to most. But it's meant for that select few, designed to redeem their memories and free the characters from the last three seasons.
I appreciate the wish that the story continue past the ending - but that was the point. "Slide Effects" ends with everyone alive and leaping into the vortex. The next slide takes them anywhere you want them to go. Personally, I think the next slide takes them here: s/5171896/1/All_For_One
The ending was my way of giving the characters back. They were taken away from you in the worst way, but now they're yours again. :-)
Anyway. It'd be cool to chat with more SLIDERS fans, and anyone who reads this script and understands it should E-mail me at ireactions

How can there not be any reviews? This story nicely fixes most of the horror the Sliding team has been through with the exception of the Professor...and I imagine it couldn't be too difficult to fix that too if you were to work at it.
I guess the reason you don't have that much response is because the scripted format? What'd be really nice is if you were to go ahead and rework this as prose and then continue it from there, but as it is it works as a balm to the nightmare the series became.
