I Want to Believe  

[Cross-posted from my MovableType Blog]

Now that work has returned to a (more) sustainable pace, I'm finding time & energy to catch up on things for which I'd pretty much given up on having time.

I'm WAAAAAAY behind on Battlestar Galactica[1], and because I'm catching up, I'm seeing (well, "fast-forwarding") commercials that are months old.

Along the way, I caught the teaser for The Lost Room. I was immediately reminded of the "House of Renunciation[2]," and thus my interest was piqued. I want to believe. I want it to be good. But I also know the quality of most "Sci-Fi Original Series"[3]. I've seen more commercials since that first that indicate my first impression is probably off base, and yet I can't completely shake it.

And here we have the darker side of Tivo. Baiting me with teasers for shows that have already come & gone.

So, did anyone see it? Was it any good? Is it worth tracking down?

[1] For those of you following along at home, I just watched a few back to back, and I just saw the boxing episode. Yeah, that behind.

[2] Dammit, I can't find a decent link for this one. Have a generic Unknown Armies link instead. Hmm, that one is probably less than helpful, I guess you could try the original source.

[3] Man-squito. 'nuf said.

I enjoyed The Lost Room. They definitely made an effort with this one -- the story, plotting, acting and overall production value were more to the level of the BG miniseries than those Traci Lords one-shots they've been doing.

It was kinda like those Tim Powers novels about the guys with the cards...

That's what I'd been hoping. Thanks for your input.

...And the reminder that a number of people seem to like Tim Powers novels, and that I should investigate. :)
