Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: The doorway inside Quinn's house on ice-world is lined with snow-covered icicles. Watch as Arturo walks through this doorway; he bumps into the icicles and you can see that it is just a bunch of cotton.

Other mistake: Quinn is watching the video of the basketball returning from the vortex. The video shows him catching the basketball, then we see a shot of Quinn pressing the fast-forward button until he shows the basketball to the camera and says "and the crowd goes crazy!" The problem is that even though he pressed only the fast-forward button, the video fast-forwards from a point before the basketball came out of the vortex, which is impossible since Quinn never rewound the tape.

Other mistake: Quinn's alarm clock turns on, then about 8 seconds later we see the time change from 7:59 to 8:00. All clock radios turn on when the time changes, or possibly fade in slowly a few minutes before the alarm time, not a few seconds before.

Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? - S4-E6

Question: In the beginning credits of movies/t.v. shows, when they say "and introducing" followed by the actor's name, it is because it is the 1st acting role for that actor. In this episode when the introduced Quinn's brother, the beginning credits say "and introducing Charlie O'Connell." However he has done other acting roles before he appeared on Sliders. As a matter of fact, he did 2 episodes on Sliders as a different character before he became Quinn's brother. So is there a reason why the actor was "introduced" in this episode?


Chosen answer: Quinn's brother was going to be a recurring character, so "introduced" in this case referred to the actor becoming a semi-regular.
