Sliders: Revelations: Resolved

 (Edited)

The first two seasons of the cult show SLIDERS were ahead of it’s time, tackling major issues through the lenses of alternate worlds where said issues make substantial impact on society…but by the third season onwards, the show went down a deep dark rabbit hole…only it didn’t wind up in Wonderland.

In time, beloved fan favourite characters were killed off or written out and a a struggle against dimension-hopping alien warriors stripped the show of all nuance and believably. The fifth season ended on a bitter note, leaving the fates of the characters up in the air.

This short fan-edit looks to try and change that. Made with fans of the show in mind, Revelations: Resolved takes the best moments of an otherwise bait-and-switch story and cuts out everything to do with the twist ending (spoiler: the Mallories are not home), everything plays out like a firm goodbye to most of the cast and gives the sole remaining Slider more of a hopeful ending to his arc.

For fun, I took the final moments of the official episode and repurposed them as a cold open, in keeping with some of the antics the friends would always get up to when we popped in on them before the next big slide.
