    Yep, they'd made it home but because they didn't have time to properly check all causes for change in the time they'd been gone...they missed it.

    And of course, if the original plan for the "Quinn's brother" thing had been used, Colin never would've been Quinn's brother and Quinn never would've been from some other more advanced Earth.

    FOX really went out of its way to mess with the show...

    It might be a very close approximation to their original reality but I doubt they could ever be sure they'd gotten home. It reminds me of the Mandela effect, which I have experienced myself in regard to other events, mostly trivial.

    There's also the time ("The Exodus") they landed on the prime Earth but had to jump again because Maggie (rather inexplicably) wasn't able to breathe its air, even though this never happened on any other parallel Earth they visited. Pretty dumb excuse for a slide. :p :lol:

    End it before season 3 or season 4. They get back to Earth Prime. That's how it's supposed to end. Voyager gets home, Sam Beckett gets home. Cash in the chips.

    There is also the theory that the people we're seeing from Seasons 3 to 5 weren't the same ones as Seasons 1-2, but one of the other Slider groups we knew were also jumping from world to world.

    Wait, now I think of it... they got back to the proper earth, gate squeaked and everything, but Maggie couldn't breathe the air? So they can never go to their own earth as long as they want to stay with Maggie?

    Yep, and her being able to breathe when they went to "Earth Prime" in "Genesis" was supposed to be a hint that it wasn't their actual home Earth.

    Man, it was tough being a nerdy kid growing up in the 90s because I was OBSESSED with this show but man was it awful. It's one of those shows you try to get your friends to watch with you because you love it so much but then the episode is so embarrassingly bad the friend stops hanging out with you.

    The timer does not "materialize" them any where. The portal opens up, usually above land, and they jump/fall out.

    Actually FOX was the one that made them do "movie of the week" episodes.
    It was Sci-Fi that started the convoluted Mallory/Quinn, Colin junk. The Colin stuff also was added because Jerry O'Connell said he'd only return if they hired his brother.

    There is a threat to using the device…but use it one last time to send a Kull warrior to the Big Bang in a Stargate crossover
