Critic Reviews

  1. 80
    A terrific, six-hour miniseries, beautifully written and sharply directed.
  2. As much fun as the adventure is, the central mystery — what happened in that motel on that May date that created such cosmic blowback — is never truly explained.
  3. A very complex metaphysical mystery, the enjoyment of which comes, in no small part, from the surprises that spill out as it slowly unfurls.
  4. 75
    Bizarrely complicated and intriguing.
  5. 70
    Strange and clever, "The Lost Room" is full of winding corridors, peculiar twists and wry, oddball humor, set against a mystery that recalls TV's better Stephen King productions.
  6. 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.

It was complexThis was, without a doubt, my favorite TV show of 2006. I enjoyed all three, two hour shows and was delighted start to finish. It was complex and interesting and not as bubble-gummy as most shows on the network. The endless combinations of objects gets one thinking. Wonder galore. Loved it. Full Review »
