From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of episodes for the Fox and Sci Fi Channel original series, Sliders. The series aired on Fox from March 1995 to May 1997 and on the Sci Fi Channel from June 1998 to February 2000. A total of 88 episodes were produced.

Season 1: 1995

It should be noted that Fox changed the intended order of the episodes, beginning with episodes they thought would draw in audiences. [1] This often causes confusion and sometimes chronological errors in continuity with respect to the (admittedly minimal) story arc (for example, episode 5 opens with the resolution to the cliffhanger brought about in episode 6). The intended and filmed order of the episodes is as follows:

1-2. "Pilot, (Parts 1 and 2)"
6. "Summer of Love"
5. "The Prince of Wails"
3. "Fever"
4. "Last Days"
8. "The Weaker Sex"
7. "Eggheads"
9. "The King is Back"
10. "Luck of the Draw"
