I'll pick it up but
Spoiler:
without John Rhys-Davies and Sabrina Lloyd it really became a shell of its former self.

Maybe when it gets as cheap as Seasons 1,2, & 3....which I haven't picked up yet, but certainly plan on it.

About time, I've heard bad things, but I will at least rent it (odd to see this be priced so high when the others can be regularly had for $15)

I will pick it up when the price drops. Yes, the quality dropped when Torme was pushed out, but I remember S4 being somewhat better than the last half of S3. At least they brought back the Kromaggs.

Absolutely. I'm forever stricken with the compulsion to buy TV shows I used to watch as a kid. Luckily I happen to love Sliders, so it's a no-brainer.

Agreed - somewhere around the 18th epsisode of the 3rd season, the show ended for me. No need to buy the 4th season.

Sliders was one of my favorite shows as a kid, but sadly (for me) the fun stopped at season 1.

I'll give this a rent, just to see how bad the show really was at this point.

I'm in. I'm a completest, so I will most certainly be picking this up.

Now if we can just get the rest of The New Outer Limits and Space Ghost Coast to Coast!

Finally. Yes this season was a mess for the aforementioned reasons but despite that two of my all-time favorite Sliders episodes are in this set. I might wait for a price drop though.

Just ordered Seasons 1-3 from Columbia House. I've only seen a few episodes from season 4. It wasn't the same without half the original cast. Was'nt there a season 5 as well?

I just noticed this one is set for release. I'll definitely pick this one up once the price comes down a bit (maybe during the DD sale or used). Yeah, I know, it's not a great series, but it's still cheezey sci-fi fun.

I'm still waiting for them to re-package season 1-2 into a more shelf-space friendly set.

Re: Sliders The Fourth Season 03/25/08

OK, finally picked this one up. It is bundled with season 3 at Wal-Mart for $20.

They are both individually wrapped so you could return season 3 and basically get season 4 for free. Not that I did that or anything. FYI careful when removing that sticker over the barcode (Goo-Be-Gone works great).

Any news on Season 5?
