A boy genius and his comrades travel to different parallel universes, trying to find their way back home.
Even though the production of the show went on continuously between seasons three and four, it had a year hiatus from airing when it was dropped by FOX, and picked up by Syfy, making the airing years (1995-1997, 1998-2000). The visual effects in the fourth season take a very noticeable dive in quality, as the series had just been cancelled by FOX before being resurrected by the Syfy Channel, which left the show with an overall lower production budget.
What if you could travel to parallel worlds? The same year, the same Earth, only different dimensions. A world where the Russians rule America... or where your dreams of being superstar came true... or where San Francisco was a maximum-security ...
When the vortex is created (to enter) it is often shown sucking things into it (usually for plot purposes) yet it is also often shown blowing their hair, debris, etc. away before they jump/slide.
The opening and closing credits for the Season 4 episode 'Way Out West' were written in a classic western movie style.
