posticon New fans in the United Kingdom


Hi, everyone!
My girlfriend and I have just become fans of 'The Lost Room'. It was broadcast here in the UK last week and the Friday before. (6 episodes.)

I guess there was never a Series 2 because it was too weird to be popular, like 'The Golden Compass'. It's just the right level of weirdness for us emoticon

A few questions:
Is it OK to assume that everyone here has seen the entire series, or is there some way to hide spoilers. (When trying to persuade someone to watch the series I'm in a dilemma since half the fun of the series is in trying to figure out what on Earth is going on, and I don't want to spoil it for newbies.)

Is the motel a real, dilapidated one or was it built for the series (which seems like a lot of unnecessary effort!). Does it still exist? I should think it'd be a shrine for fans emoticon though for the full effect they should arrive there by being dropped out of a helicopter!

Re: New fans in the United Kingdom


Welcome to the forum!

At this point I think we've all finished the entire series, as people usually come here looking for more once it's done. As for the Sunshine Motel, it was built and roughed up specifically for the series itself, and is still around in Albuquerque, New Mexico if I remember correctly.

Thanks, TWDtSoM and AMP.
It's a pity about the motel.

It would be one of my LOTTO dreams to recreate the Motel and open it as a real motel.

Re: New fans in the United Kingdom


The motel was just a set frontage built on site and then torn down.

As part of the bundle of production items I managed to get from someone who worked on the show I have photos of and a location map for every site used in the show and every real building in it. Most are in Albuquerque, NM


One day I'm gonna take my production made copy of the bus ticket and go take a photo of it outside the house :-)
