    A terrific, six-hour miniseries, beautifully written and sharply directed.
  2. 75
    Bizarrely complicated and intriguing.
  3. 70
    And while the quest story has the inevitable whiff of The Lord of the Rings about it... the episodes almost feel more like sci-fi Hitchcock than anything else.
  4. "The Lost Room" is certainly a more creative exercise than past Sci Fi miniseries (including "The Triangle"), but it sometimes feels rushed.
  5. It's a supernatural mystery, involving a few ghosts, a little time travel and lots of crazy people. People who have been missing The X-Files might really go for The Lost Room.
  6. Maybe the best thing about this miniseries is the weird assortment of characters.
  7. While it's not totally painful, it's so hopelessly incoherent that you'll probably get a headache or two if you actually stick with it for the full three days and six hours.

    One of the best written and most innovative pieces of science fiction I have ever seen. I can't say more than that without giving stuff away. You really just have to see it for yourself. I was more than impressed. Expand

    '"Lost Room" is a shaggy dog story that gets shaggier with every scene. It's a tale as tall as the Empire State Building that threatens to topple in the merest breeze but - miraculously - never does." That is what one of the critics wrote. The only thing I agree with him, is that the end didn't reveal 'the Event'. But it would have been a great cliffhanger finale, if there had been more seasons. Now, that is the only thing I regret about this show. I am not a fan of comic books myself, but I will give this one a try because I loved the show.

    Original.
    Entertaining.
    And the Best thing is it makes you want more, but the worst thing is there is nothing more!

    Very suspenseful, well acted and intriguing. The Order is like every crazy religion. It's like a wonderful comic book.
    Peter Krause and
    Juianna Margulies are superb. Expand
