The Lost Room

The Lost Room is a 6-hour mini-series that popped up on my Tivo last week. I kinda liked it.

Basically, there's a extra-dimensional motel room that appears off Route 66 and all the objects in it are imbued with magical powers. Weird cults fight as they try to collect all the pieces. It's like watching Zork crossed with the Twighlight Zone crossed with Clue crossed with The Stand, if that makes any sense. Peter Krause, Julianna Margulies, and Kevin Pollack star. Some of the plot is easy to see coming, but the writers know when to keep their mouths shut and leave the inexplicable unexplained (always a good move).

SciFi is running it all the time, and given the way it ended, they will probably spit out a sequel next year.
