Rembrandt's dream finally comes true: the Sliders land on an Earth where Rembrandt's double is more popular than Elvis, but has been dead for many years. Whilst he enjoys being in the limelight, his life may be in danger when a band member from the past vows to take revenge.
- The first appearance of Cleavant Derricks' real-life twin brother, Clinton Derricks-Carroll. He was used as Rembrandt's double so that they could put two people together in a scene and film, much simpler than filming two sequences separately with one actor and combining them, as with the doubles for the other actors. This allowed them to do such things as touch and interact naturally, something not possible with the other characters' doubles. Clinton would reappear as Rembrandt's double for the episode Greatfellas.
- This was the ninth episode filmed and aired.
