This was one of the most consistently satisfying and engrossing miniseries I'd seen in a long time, whether sci-fi or otherwise.

The story line was absolutely fascinating.

Rather than being cheesy and badly overacted, it is intriguing and truly well-acted.

The story line was really good, full of different twists that kept me on the edge of my seat.

On the other hand the plot gives a possibility to extend the entertaining suspense for at least another miniseries, IF the high level is kept up, of course.

All of this makes for a highly engaging show that spans six 45 minute episodes.

It really makes a story go from interesting to fascinating.

It also seemed that they were going nowhere with the character called Lee Bridgewater, which was the female cop who had the deck of cards shown at her.

it gets confusing, the plot changes and looses logic and finally the end, it reminds me of most TV series endings where they need sudden closure, its just idiotic.

Utterly Fascinating Puzzle for Smart Viewers .

Don't for a moment lump "The Lost Room" with other Sci Fi Channel "epics" such as "Frankenfish," "Minotaur," "Blood Suckers," or that boring crapfest "Chupacabra: Dark Seas".

This can also be suspenseful, and the atmosphere and mystery are spectacular.

This was a great premise-fun to watch and totally absorbing.

Quite tedious & predictable.. Never surprises me how limited human beings can be when some form of alternate reality is involved..

I was so gob-smacked by what I saw that I waited until our our local station reran the entire series in the summer, and watched the whole thing again, beginning to end, and enjoyed it even more.

It Is Entertaining.

I felt like I could have been doing something else, it was a waste of my time.

The show is really well-written and engrossing.

The closer I got, the more I actually thought that this is going nowhere and they have no idea how to finish this.

This mini-series is quite original and I found it very entertaining.

All in all, this show is worth watching.

Fascinating Premise .

All three parts are worth watching.

Overall, this is a great epic that is intriguing and well written.

This mini series is so entertaining, you'll never want it to end.

Anyway, it was a wonderful show with a lot of twists and unexpected events.

The story is very intriguing and very well written, the dialogue is believable and doesn't come across as stilted or unreal (in spite of the very surreal quality surrounding the events and the "objects" of the tale).

There were major writing flaws, but it was entertaining.

In this case she got just as sucked into it as I did, and enjoyed it about as much.

"The Lost Room" is mini-series divided in six chapters - The Key, The Clock, The Comb, The Box, The Eye and the Occupant - with a fascinating premise.

Watch this only if you like to see exciting ideas get absolutely zero resolution.

I guess nothing happened with it.

Anyway the intriguing and original plot entertains.

I'm usually not one for science fiction, but this was an intriguing premise and it was well done.

thank you for those entertaining hours give me more.

The most fascinating thing I've found is how it is still bouncing around in my mind.

" A highly entertaining and thought provoking mini series from the Sci-Fi Channel.

It is one of those series where you can't just watch the first episode because it gets much more exciting!

And the plot is, as my "summary" states, original and compelling.

This is kept up in a very entertaining way until the film ends...

The plot of the miniseries managed to stay fresh I felt compelled to finish watching even though I felt that the end result of the series was predictable.

An absolutely engrossing miniseries...

He stumbles upon a series of mundane objects that have been taken from the room and now possess unusual powers.

This is definitely worth watching.

I hope I can find this on DVD soon, its not often that I see a made for TV movie and enjoy it, heck my wife only caught the final act and enjoyed it.

Now on to the better, this mini series deals with some of the most fascinating aspects of science fiction.

"The Lost Room" is mostly entertaining and fairly impressive.

The action is intense, and definitely among my favorite of that, as far as what's been put on the small screen.

It is worth the watch!

I think that once that happens, the EVENT will be revealed; possibly, each object bore witness to the EVENT, and each was imprinted with a fragment of "power" associated with that witness, some more imprinted than others unless they come within a certain distance to other objects.

For as long as the series lasted, it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Original, compelling, entertaining--when the series.

This is an incredibly engaging drama and fascinating mystery.

It sounded boring.
