It started off kind of slow but got much better towards the end to the point of being extremely frustrating if nothing else happens with it.
Watched it last night; it really was quite good! Certainly better than Sliders (which I followed for 4 increasingly-disappointing seasons in the hope that it would somehow get better). And yes, it does seem like a pilot episode for a series, what with all of those loose ends just begging for an adventurous conclusion!

Slight nitpick: from what I gathered, the building itself doesn't "move" from universe to universe; the interior does. The exterior exists in many universes (or there are many exterior shells). I wonder if the nuke destroyed the shell in the apocalyptic universe?

The gun was pretty neat.
