I started watching The Lost Room on the Sci-Fi Channel last night (via my DVR). I have to say, I’m impressed. It has the magical flavor of Lord of the Rings, the mystery and suspense of, well, something mysterious and suspenseful, and a good sense of epic-ness about it. There’s a real feeling of every day characters caught up in something much larger than even the characters who are in the know can conceive.
The only problem is how quickly the everyday characters digest the premise. It isn’t so quick as to be completely unbelievable, but a little too quick to be normal. Granted, it’s a mini-series, so only six hours or so to get it all in, but still.
If you missed it, they’re replaying it like crazy anyway.
