Sliders[edit | edit source]
David Peckinpah's work on Sliders has been controversial. Several fans on [JumptheShark.com] cite Peckinpah's involvement as the moment when the show "jumped the shark." On the other hand, Keith Damron, who worked with Peckinpah on Sliders, said of him on June 29, 1999, "David is a great guy to work for and professional to the core." According to other crew members on the show he attempted a relationship with Sabrina Lloyd and when his advances were rejected he ordered a rewrite where her character was sentenced to a Kromagg breeding camp. In 2004 he was recorded on tape boasting about his re-write and her characters fate.
