I'm back to talk about one of the greatest shows of all time, Sliders! This episode written by Tony Blake & Paul Jackson starts off with the sliders landing on a new world where they will spend the next 3 days and 6 hours.
This world has women everywhere and the sliders don't really notice until a little girl brings attention to them. A group of women rush them and at first Remy thinks that it is because Remy is a star again but they quickly learn as they are arrested that that is not the case. Only Wade escapes.
Arturo and Remy are loving this world but Quinn is worried that something is wrong, we learn soon that he is right. They are on a world where men are all but wiped out so the few that are left are put into camps and forced to breed. The Sliders will never be allowed to leave the breeding center.
A random man decides to help them escape, his sister and wife are planning a break out for him and for whatever reason he invites the sliders along. His sister storms the camp and the police give chase as the sliders and random man go over the wall. They make it back to the house and relax a bit while they wait for Wade to show up.
She is at the hotel where women are lined up just waiting to get on a list to breed with a random man. She gets a call telling her where to meet with them and the police over hear. Wade makes it to the house and at first pretends not to have the timer giving everyone a heart attack. She pulls it out and everyone has a good laugh, at least till the cops show up.
They escape but only get s far before the cops find them again and capture Quinn and Arturo. The others get away. I love this episode so much, it always reminds me of a scifi channel movie that I saw when I was kid. It came out around the same time and was called the last man on planet Earth. If you guys like this episode check it out.
A random lady saves Quinn from being taken by the cops and takes him back to her house. No sign of Arturo and the Sliders only have a couple of hours left until the slide. She shows him a flyer showing that he and his friends are still wanted so Arturo, while not with the others hasn't been arrested either. It seems that the Australians must have him. Wade and Remy have to break in and slide out from there. The only problem with their plan is that Quinn is not there like they think he is.
Arturo is being prepped to send to Australia and one of the soldiers wants some alone time with him. Wade dresses Remy as a woman so that they can go outside but he won't save his stash, can't say I blame him. I hate being clean shaven. The man who got them out of the center is waiting, most likely to turn himself in to save his wife. Poor guy, all of his problems come from the fact that he decided to help the Sliders out. He didn't have to and maybe shouldn't have.
Arturo gets Wade's attention and she demands to see Arturo and Quinn, they learn that Quinn isn't there. The Australians get ready to ship the three of them back home but Wade promises that she can get them the all-star American breeder. Meanwhile Quinn is having no luck finding his friends. The lady asks Quinn to father her child and he says that he doesn't want to father a child that he will never see. Something that as a bastard myself I can understand. Wade tells the man who helped them that she can free his girlfriend and keep him free as well. Wade and her damn plans.
She makes a deal with the cop and fed, her friends for the all-star, she also tells them that the all-star is about to be given a virus so he can't breed anymore so their hands are tied. Wade then tricks both sides into meeting under the bridge. The other catch to Wade's plan was the wife being freed. The trade is almost done but Wade isn't there and no Quinn either. The man takes off running into the van where Arturo and Remy were sitting. Turns out that Wade stole disabled the cops van and showed up with her own. Everyone is together but Quinn. They head to the spot they told him to meet them and there he is. She opens the vortex and drives through it. Quinn jumps in after them just as the cops show up. The man who saved them and his wife are on a new world now where they can be happy and not have to worry about being split up. The episode ends on the lady who helped Quinn smiling and looking at a picture of her husband. Did Quinn try and give her a child? We will never know but I think he might have. It would have been nice seeing as it is the only chance she will ever have of having one.
