| Sliders is the story
of Quinn Mallory and his companions, Wade Wells, Rembrandt Brown, Maximillian
Arturo (killed in season 3), Maggie Beckett (introduced to replace Arturo
in season 3) and their journeys through the multiverse as they attempt
to find their way back to Earth Prime.
Unfortunately, sliders was canceled by the FOX network
following the end of it's third season (which many fans have referred to
as the worst. This is due mostly to bad writing and movie rip-offs
and more precisely on Executive Producer David Peckinpah). It appeared
as if the fans would never know the fate of Quinn, Wade, Rembrandt, and
Maggie. Then again, no one really cared about Maggie too much, the
masses would have preferred Professor Arturo over her any day.
An enormous campaign was started by the fans of Sliders.
The fans had spoken, they wanted the dangling plot lines wrapped up, they
wanted to know the final fate of their favorite characters and they wanted
Tracy Torme to write it.
The FOX executives scoffed at first, but with the FOX
boycott and the sagging ratings of the X-Files and The Simpsons (the network's
two most highly rated shows) that resulted from it, they finally caved
in. After all, they only had to wrap-up the plot lines, it wasn't
like they had to renew the show for another season. Or so it seemed.
Torme began work on the wrap-up script entitled "Homecoming"
but the project took on a life of it's own. It went from what would
have been a 2 hour TV movie to a grand sci-fi epic that would appease Torme
and the fans after the crap that they had been subjected to in season three.
FOX was furious. They needed a 2 hour movie,
not a mini-series that would stretch on indefinitely. Torme fled
to the internet for his support. He informed the fans of what
was transpiring with the FOX executives. The boycott continued.
When FOX came in last place in the ratings, behind
even UPN and the WB. They had no choice but to buckle to Torme and
the fan's demands.
And thus was born the greatest sci-fi epic ever
seen on television Sliders:Homecoming. Here you will find transcripts
of the episodes, a familiarization of the characters and their whereabouts
at the end of season 3.
So enjoy, you, the fans, have deserved this.
