Sliders, episode 83 (5.13)
Last Modified: 28 Jun 2006 13:30:03
Rembrandt, Maggie, Mallory and Diana are caught in the middle of a bizarre and deadly fast food franchise war. Our heroes barely slide away with their lives only to appear in a world where its people are dedicated to pleasure and hi-tech recreation. Quite a change from their previous venue, this world is dominated by Mark Einman, an entertainment mogul who through holographic generated adventures can make one's every fantasy come true.
Our heroes decide to take advantage of their new surroundings. They declare themselves "on vacation" and sign on for Einman's state of the art entertainment experience, The Arcade. Mallory elects to role play a civil war soldier while Rembrandt embarks upon a holographic 1970's detective adventure. Maggie and Diana decide to play it low key and hit the Roman health spa.
Later, after the games, Rembrandt and Mallory share their disappointment with their adventures feeling that the scenarios are little more than holographic violence-fests. The people of this world seem more interested in satiating a peculiar bloodlust than actual role playing. Rembrandt and Mallory decide to leave but are unable to locate Maggie and Diana.
Things really get weird when holograms of Maggie and Diana appear as characters in the fantasy games. Someone at The Arcade is using their images for some unknown and no doubt unsavory purpose. But why? And where are the real Maggie and Diana?
