This weekend, Jenn and I did something we really have never done before: we set ourselves in front of the TV for a marathon. We watched all six hours of The Lost Room consecutively. It was actually quite a bit of fun, and we really enjoyed the show. Afterwards, we agreed that we were exhausted and that we needed to really get moving on Sunday.
The Lost Room felt a lot like Heroes in that instead of people with powers, we were learning more about objects with powers, and unlike people, where there’s a whole character to meet, it was easy to introduce new objects with little responsibility to develop a backstory.
The only real problem was that it never really explained who was good and who was bad, nor did it explain where the story goes now that Joe has… well… done what he did in the last scene, which presumably ends the storyline pretty damned dead in its tracks.
Anyway, I liked it, and I recommend that if you haven’t seen it, you check it out when it makes its way to DVD.
