I really liked this short 3 night mini-series that OBVIOUSLY was was setting us up for a possible full series. The Lost Room involved a police detective who received a KEY to a motel room #10 - a room that doesn't exist except in a bizarre alternate reality that many people are aware of.
In the story, his daughter is kidnapped and runs into a room and disappears, the father named Joe starts to find out that all "objects" that were in room #9 of this Gallup, New Mexico motel were affected with magical powers; a pen that could microwave someone if stabbed with it, eyeglasses that make you invincible, a glass eye that could turn enemies to dust and heal the wearer from the most deadly of wounds, a bus ticket that would drop you from the sky on to a road near the motel.
The prized object (and there are dozens both found and missing) is the room key held by Joe the main star (peter Krausa who was Nat in Six Feet Under) and having it was the reason his daughter was kidnapped and possessing it was his only way to find her.
Along the way he met people with their own reasons to possess the key - often to save their own family who is also is dire straights.
The series (3 two hour shows) was not edited well, you could spot lots of cutting errors, continuity issues, etc., but the story was interesting and fresh - the stuff some objects do were really interesting.
The end surely told us that the door is open for a full series - I think we'll know soon after they weigh the ratings if this will lead into a full series, I think it will be interesting - they had a lot of OBJECTS from the motel room they did not cover yet and several characters that they left hanging with end to their storyline. We'll see
