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.

Current Mood: intrigued

Ok, but this fills me with a bit of dread. I like those kinds of games, but as a general rule they don't make very good spectator sports.

Well, it's definitely not schlocky. I think the story outweighed the how-can-we-cleverly-use-the-Objects-together parts. I don't think you should buy it (though I might, at some point) but definitely put it on your Wishlist and give it a go. And if I get it on DVD before you get a chance to watch it, I'll loan it to you.
