Topic: Sliders: The Animated Series
So this morning I had a thought that was so simple that I was confident we'd talked about it before. But I searched and it doesn't look like we've ever talked about it broadly (it was only mentioned once)
But with the popularity of shows like Rick & Morty and Star Trek: Lower Decks, why hasn't the idea of a Sliders animated series been discussed? I know the real-world answer is "No one is really working on Sliders" but I think it might make a ton more sense than doing any sort of live action story. They could do it in the style of Rick and Morty (which is becoming more popular, see Lower Decks) - goofy and out there, or they could do computer animation and take it more seriously like Rebels and Clone Wars. Or something in the middle.
But Jerry's working on Lower Decks. He's probably meeting the right people, and if he was ever truly interested in resurrecting the show, animation might make the most sense. He could play Quinn at 20 or 40 or whatever. You could get back JRD who could work safely from home. And I think it would be easier to do more high-concept storylines because you could have a Russian army walking by the White House without having to do it small scale or use camera tricks.
I even think they could make it kid-friendly and still make it work. There's already a built in avenue to teach about history and science. I don't mean full infotainment, but the Clone Wars was for kids but still handled mature and adult topics.
What do we think?
