Sliders is a 1995 Fox sci-fi series about a group of inter-dimensional travelers that use wormhole-like vortexes to “slide” between different universes. Once in a new universe, the Sliders check a portable countdown timer that indicates when a randomly generated new vortex will open, leading them to the next universe. Their main objective is to reach their home, “Earth Prime”. However, if they miss the vortex opening, they remain trapped in the alternate universe for nearly 30 years. While waiting for the next vortex to open, the team learns about the differences and similarities of each universe in comparison and contrast to their own, often getting caught up in events they typically must help to resolve before departing.
