SummariesThe Sliders land in a coastal community where no one seems to be over the age of 35 and they soon discover the small town's dirty little secret. -Fox
The sliders touch down on a seemingly idyllic town where the residents all look young but seem fearful of their new visitors, who soon discover the dirty secret to their hosts' youth. -TV Guide
79. Unnamed Earth OneWhen the Sliders land face first on a beach on Shai-hulud Earth (see below) Wade comments that "All of our landings have tanked ever since we started using that thing," referring to the new timer they picked up from Egyptian Earth in Slide Like An Egyptian. This indicates that there must have been two or more earths after Egyptian Earth but before Shai-hulud Earth that we know nothing about.
80. Unnamed Earth Two
81. Shai-hulud EarthVisitors to this world may get the impression they've somehow stepped into a Stephen King novel. The tiny coastal town of Paradise Beach has had a secret ever since an explosion at a nearby uranium mine in the early 1940s: a worm, a huge beast which can tunnel quickly underground emits a substance which can greatly prolong life but the beast only secretes this substance after consuming human flesh.
Visitors to the town, such as the four Sliders, often get the opportunity to meet this creature up close and personal.
- Alternate Earth 82, Tainted Eden Earth, which we see as a flashback in The Last of Eden, was probably visited after this world, but before the worlds visited in the next episode, The Exodus - Part One.
