anime nerds I have a question: Is there any appreciable difference between a "slice of life show" and a sitcom? (self.dontwatchanime)

There's a lot of overlap, but slice of life can be pretty dramatic or romantic where as what we normally call sitcoms tend to be a fairly formulaic comedic format.
Like as I see it anything that involves something approximating normal life, e.g. no superpowers or whatever, and that focuses on the characters' daily life, could be considered slice of life.

you know that's kinda funny i'd say king of the hill totally counts as slice of life lol

maybe i am wrong but i think slice of life often have an ongoing plot? sitcoms are more episodic

Plenty of episodic slice of life anime. Non Non Biyori is one such example (and also very good!!!!). But there's also plenty of slice of life serials too (Chihayafuru being one such example, also also very good!!!!)
