SummariesLanding in the pre-Revolution United States, the Sliders encounter Arturo's double, a sheriff planning a royal execution. -Fox
In the British States of America--a place where England won the Revolutionary War--the Sliders are embroiled in an assassination plot involving the heir to the throne and an evil Sheriff of San Francisco. -TV Guide
10. Water EarthThe oceans of this world have risen several hundred feet, probably due to the melting of the polar ice caps. San Francisco is covered by so much water that only the upper twenty feet or so of San Francisco's Transamerican Pyramid is projecting out of the water.
11. British EarthHere the American Colonies lost their Revolutionary War against the British and George Washinton is just a footnote in the history of the British States of America. Harold the third, Prince of the Americas and heir to the British throne has a private game preserve where Oakland is on Earth Prime. Alternate Arturo is the Sheriff of San Francisco.
- When the Sliders arrive on Water Earth they are wearing the clothes they were wearing when they slid out of Hippie Earth in Summer of Love. This makes sense since Prince of Wails (episode SL-104) was filmed after Summer of Love (episode SL-103). I assume that the tidal wave we see at the end of SOL causes the flooding we see here on Water Earth.
