Isn't he signed to play Indy again?

Yes, I believe. So can we assume they kill his character off? Steven Spielberg has a lot prove after they pasted in Shia LaBeouf swinging through trees.

I use this book on a daily basis. It's got me covered. When I'm in a pinch I whip it out to prove season 3 is the best season there is. If I don't have time to watch an episode, no problem. I can read each episode synopsis in about 2 minutes. Certainly worth the full retail $19.95 Canadian doughlars. Its a great compliment to my Limited Edition $139.99 Complete Series collector set.

Thought I'd give a heads up, IMDB is jumping ship like SyFy.

IMDb is the world's most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content. As part of our ongoing effort to continually evaluate and enhance the customer experience on IMDb, we have decided to disable IMDb's message boards on February 20, 2017. This includes the Private Message system. After in-depth discussion and examination, we have concluded that IMDb's message boards are no longer providing a positive, useful experience for the vast majority of our more than 250 million monthly users worldwide. The decision to retire a long-standing feature was made only after careful consideration and was based on data and traffic.

Gotta say I'm pretty impressed with the filming on this latest episode about Jesse James. It looks movie quality. Don't know about anyone else but I was surprised Abigail done the shooting this time around instead of Wyatt. The Lone Ranger idea was somewhat lame, since to my knowledge its a fictional character. The racial tones seem unnecessary too about Rufus calling the currently portrayed Lone Ranger a "white dick".

It's about time someone showed the new world order the door. My only fear is assassination like JFK.

It's a decent show so far but I still wonder how long they can drag it out with running after Flynn. In many ways it's like the Sliders running after Rickman minus the brain juice.

Yeah every release looks the same except the Mill Creek release from this year. I have a side by side screenshot comparison of the Mill Creek release vs the Dual Dimension set. You can see that here (middle of the review) http://slidecage.com/dvd/series/. Even the 2014 complete set looks just as good as the dual dimension set too.

At this point nothing short of a coup, or intervention from God will save America from Hillary and the globalists. Secession should even be an option.

Snagged it on eBay a while back. The DVD packaging is pretty sad, well the video quality is too.

Here are some storyboards of the Sliders Pilot from 1994: http://slidecage.com/media/storyboards/
Also, I've done a review of the latest Complete Series DVD with photos etc.: http://slidecage.com/dvd/series/

The Complete Series DVD has been pushed back till October 11th 2016. http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Slider … ries/22692.

If anyone's interested you can flashmob support with Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, until October 4th, 2016: slidecage.com/thunderclap.

Mill Creek finally put up an episode listing for each disc on their website: http://www.millcreekent.com/sliders-the … eries.html. Sadly I believe the DVD case will be nothing other than a mockup of the Airwolf set: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rel1RA0n4wo

Not suggesting anything, just if you look at the list they provided they suggested some would come to blu and none have only DVD: http://tvshowsondvd.com/n/22066

Anyone else notice TVShowsOnDVD 'some of them coming to blu-ray shows' that well they've all been recently announced to DVD-none to blu-ray.

I'm close to buying another DVD case for the upcoming set. If you take a look at the recent release of Mad About You from Mill Creek it doesn't bode well: https://www.amazon.com/review/reviews-l … B01CIS85YE

If I'm not mistaken I think Alexslider come up with this one http://www.cafepress.com/mf/35231903/sl … =401476987.

I think its more surprising that "Invasion" is ranked 4th. So many people complain about the episode saying the show should've never gone there.

At any rate, if Jerry does get the job there's no doubt it will be a plus for Sliders in some capacity.

Just for kicks. I made a petition/tribute video if anyone would like to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpAp926lGKE

Survivor of the Sci-Fi channel boards.

Jerry talked about starting a petition, so I did. He's retweeted my links to it twice, so I think its safe to say he wants the show to return pretty bad. As I talked about in the petition it's really NOW or NEVER to see John Rhys-Davies in Sliders again. He's 71. And who knows he might not want to participle in anything again after everything he went through on the show. But if we want Sliders to return in some form I don't see many alternatives other than to continue to prod Tracy, Jerry, etc., signs petitions, and spread the word. I've been talking to a fan on Twitter who's been in contact with people at Comic Con NY about trying to start something for Sliders in October. Who knows. All we can do is try, because without the fans the show wouldn't exist to begin with.

Sorry you're having trouble, I wonder if it could be the browser. I don't think anyone else has had trouble that I know of there were 8 signatures since yesterday. I'm using the iPhone and it seems to be working well.

Came across this podcast apparently they only choose one episode from a show. The audio is done well. http://tunein-nextweek.tumblr.com/post/ … the-weaker

I know, I know. You're thinking what's the use. But if you're feeling optimistic like me, here's the link:

Like SliderTen suggested how recent is recent with his talk with Tracy. If its been within the past month or so that would seem quite interesting but Jerry told me last year he would be in if Tracy was on board. So I'm wondering if he's referring to that same time period over a year ago. This past December he told me he talked Cleavant 'recently' over the phone, so who knows.

The Lazarus Man.

Jerry O'Connell: Hard to say I enjoy a few of them and they are obviously unpopular excluding a couple:
- The Ranger, the Cook and a Hole in the Sky
- What the Deaf Man Heard
- Kangaroo Jack
- Crossing Jordan
- My Secret Identity
- Stand by Me

John Rhys-Davies: You can't go wrong with Raiders of the Lost Ark. I picked up the LOTR blu ray collection probably three years ago and haven't found the time or gumption to watch them. I've seen the first and remember being unimpressed. Figured I'd eventually give it another shot.

Sabrina Lloyd: It's been years but I remember enjoying her in Sports Night.

Cleavant Derricks: What isn't he good in?

Been plugging along now for 49 weeks each Saturday night doing the rewatch Live Tweet. I'm into season four's Prophets and Loss this weekend. Trust me doing a simple Live Tweet since one year ago is harder than it looks too. Some episodes can be hard to get through and others are quite enjoyable to do and I think the tweets pretty much sum that up. After 87 weeks I'm going to be depressed by the end of The Seer.

slidecage.com has a new design. I also got up some new posts.

I mentioned to Gord at TVShowsOnDVD that Sliders seasons one and two were re-released back in 2012 with new packaging. He said they don't list them if they are just repackaging without any new content. So hopefully this new article brings promise. Obviously Quantum Leap will be one of the 'candidates' to be on blu ray since they are streaming it in HD on Netflix.

Stretching 4:3 to 16:9 would be a tragedy for Sliders. I'd rather see 4:3 in HD rather than a stretch. I watched a documentary about Star Trek TNG a while back and while they shot the show in a 16:9 format they weren't thinking that it would ever be necessary to be seen that way. And as a result they left C-stands, etc. off to the sides of the frame. It wouldn't shock me at all if FOX took that approach but hopefully the director of photography and others had some say.

My biggest question would be was Sliders shot in widescreen, like the X-Files and no one knew until years later till the HD versions were released. Mill Creek has Airwolf on blu ray and they also have Knight Rider HD but failed to put it on BD as TVShows on DVD says:

The episodes will even be newly remastered in high definition, for great quality on such a low-cost item. And who knows? With HD masters available, maybe Mill Creek's got top-secret (for now) plans to later put this show out on Blu-ray Disc, like they're doing on the same date with Airwolf!

They also done a That 70s Show BD, in the trailer they keep bantering how it was transferred from the original film negatives: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6AIGQN3p1w. Who knows who done the transferring though.

If it's anything to note NBC Universal Store removed the Complete Series set from their website about a month ago. Season five was also removed, I asked them and they said they have no release date for that season.

I feel it's either going to be a good blu ray transfer or a kick in the shins with yet another DVD re-release. A shoddy up conversion/cleanup just seems pointless.

http://tvshowsondvd.com/n/22066.

TV Shows on DVD:
We're pleased to have the scoop that in the not-too-distant future Mill Creek will be releasing (or re-releasing) six other TV shows which they've licensed from Universal Studios, and all will get some form of DVD version from MCE. Some of them will also make their debut on high-def Blu-ray Disc format, too...but Mill Creek hasn't finalized which ones, and in what configurations. Here are the six other shows to look for: Quantum Leap, Sliders, The Rockford Files, Coach, Friday Night Lights, Necessary Roughness.

EDITED TO ADD: DVD pushed back till October 11th 2016. http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Slider … ries/22692

EDITED TO ADD: DVD announcement, no blu-ray possible: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Slider … ries/22442

Mill Creek Entertainment is excited to announce that on October 4th they will re-release Sliders - The Complete Series on DVD. Mill Creek knows that a lot of fans have REALLY been pushing for a Blu-ray release of Sliders, and so they have asked us to pass along that high definition masters of the episodes have NOT been made available to MCE, therefore no Blu-ray release plans have been made at this time. Unfortunately they just do not have the ability to make it happen; they are only able to use what materials are provided by the studio they've licensed the property from. But they are excited to give fans a new way to get the show on DVD, at a great price, and for the first time in the proper order.

"This really gets my goat—  now the Mexican government is complaining about all the Americans who are moving across the border illegally to live in Mexico. Please. If these people just care about getting a better job and a higher standard of living, good riddance to them."

He talks about how Sliders was the single biggest missed opportunity in his life and that Sliders could be revived. The scripts were mostly gibberish: http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/news/ … f-my-life/

So essentially the x file was Mulder hallucinating? I didn't enjoy Babylon, I mean there really was no X-File. Where's the mystery? Where is the science fiction? Is there a episode in this season that is really a true X-File? I enjoyed "My Struggle" but it seems every single episode is more comedic, lighter and seems it must have a political statement in every episode. Whether it be homosexuals, religion, arabs, culture, etc. it's forced and so obvious. Remember the dark nights, the dreary Vancouver skies and abandoned buildings? The mystery is gone.

The sad truth is nearly everything My Struggle points out is in fact true. It looked more like a documentary than anything. I believe it's a way of Chris Carter getting out the truth in his own way. The NDAA, the Tuskegee experiments, the Patriot Act, preparing to round us up, the spying etc are all true but people will sugar coat it with "you're a paranoid conspiracy theorist, you're bending the truth." They're even mixing human and animal DNA in cow fetuses. Until people actually get off the couch stop drinking fluoride and eating GMOs and investigate the truth themselves they will indeed become complacent and be overtaken by a one world government. But they won't. They will insist they are right and refuse to take the time to research these topics which has been heavily documented and can be proven. It seems completely outlandish and something beyond the realm of possibility. It's something Alex Jones has been covering for many years excluding the alien part. You don't believe the man you do the research and prove it yourself. I'm surprised this episode even aired. In case your were wondering I'm not trolling. Good night all.

Just a heads up Quantum Leap and Seaquest DSV Season 1 are being released to blu ray in Australia. Of all things DSV? Surely there is still hope for Sliders.

I like Michael's Sliders novel review. I has a twist with his own original story/acting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KD52N83Xago

"Rewind" from Syfy. Actually the Pilot aired but beyond that it was cancelled.

Not sure about the hub but I can answer your second question though. All of the releases look the same even compared to the complete series set.
