Beginning with Krause, superb casting makes The Lost Room constantly engaging, even when its logic borders on nonsensical. Clearly intended as a potential series, it leads to a let-down ending where too many questions remain unanswered, but getting there is a blast. And while the smart, beautiful Julianna Margulies seems cast adrift as Miller's bland love interest (and a member of the object-seeking underground), the story grows increasingly intriguing with the introduction of a wealthy father (Kevin Pollak) obsessed with curing his cancerous son with the objects; an unstable nebbish (Peter Jacobsen) who's been driven nearly mad by his visits to the lost room; a devious doctor (Dennis Christopher) who falls in with a group of religious zealots convinced that the lost room leads to God; and various supporting characters (including comedian/monologist Margaret Cho) and subplots that lead you to believe this is all leading to something fantastic. That The Lost Room fails to deliver on its early promise doesn't mean it's a waste of time; it's got the same clever appeal as Heroes and Lost, and one can easily see how it might've made a more rewarding long-form series. Individual reactions will vary, but fans of supernatural sci-fi will want to check it out for themselves. --Jeff Shannon
Great writing, Great actors, very unique story concept.
When it comes to items like The Lost Room that is really a tragedy, too, because this 4-part miniseries was one that really kept me watching.
I am not a great sci-fi fan, but this was one of the best shows of any genre that I have ever seen on television.

|Is it fixed yet?||
I purchased this dvd 12/26/2007 - - nothing has been fixed. I don't think they actually fix DVDs that have these types of problems. (Unless it gets re-released as a director's cut or something like that.)
For what it's worth, the worst of the video quality problems (specifically the... Read More
