Very cool interview (in total) but I could listen to this man for days. He felt he "mismanaged" the show. Complained at how they would get great scripts from young UCLA/NYU kids, he'd offer them to the producers who refused to "let anyone into the writing process." Said the purpose of TV show crew was to assure you have a job for "the next season."
Gave an anecdote about how Prof Arturo was an important figure on television, in terms of science, and should not have been made into a joke. That was something that often happened to him. Writers had very little experience with science ficiton, didn't even watch any. Also began describing atomic bomb dynamics, followed by joking about how bad the science was in Last Days, "our upside down Twister," and the dual neutron stars from The Exodus.
PS: the other interviews were done by film critics buffoons, no Sliders mentions.
