Re: Possible Distinguished Visitor


This got me thinking about another way to restart the series built around Anna.

A middle-aged man who looks like a cross between a car salesman and a bank teller enters an office building and says he has an appointment with Anna Miller.

The receptionist sends him up the elevator to her office.

He enters a plush office room where Anna Miller is obviously the executive and walks over to her desk. He asks if he can take a seat.

She looks suspicious, but jestures to a seat in front of her desk.

He begins by saying, "Are you Anna Miller, daughter of Joe Miller?"

She sternly asks him to leave.

He says, "No, you don't understand. I have information as to the whereabouts of your father."

She studies him over and finally responds, "[sign in to see URL] you [sign in to see URL] can't get anywhere with that damned motel room. No one ever gets anywhere with that damned motel room. You should forget you ever heard about it and go on with your life. Maybe if enough people forget about it, it will just go away."

The man chuckles slightly. "It will never really go away. You know that. I know that. I wish I had never learned about it either. But we don't really choose [sign in to see URL] we?"


Well, you get the idea. It is not my job to write the sequel. I will leave that to the originators.

Better:

Anna Miller is standing at a busstop in the pouring rain when an old man walks up and stands next to her.

He begins to open a yellow umbrella...

Anna jumps back and exclaims, "Where did you get that thing?"

The old man is taken aback and says, "Pardon me?"

She studies the umbrella over and realizes it does not have the straight handle of the one she had seen in the old picture.

"I'm sorry," she says, "I thought for a moment you were someone else. I'm so sorry."

The man continues to open the umbrella, but minds his own business.

Later, when she gets home after a long bus ride, she receives a call from a friend. The friend is talking casually about her day when she mentions, "I saw the strangest thing this afternoon. A man that was being pursued by the police across the street ran into an ally. They followed him in, but a few seconds later, they came back out looking confused. They were shaking their heads and waving their hands in the air like they had seen something impossible. The light changed and I had to drive on. I never learned what it was about."

Anna tries to be cool and finishes the telephone conversation. When she gets off, she is distraught and says under her breath. "Please, [sign in to see URL] go away and leave me alone. I will never touch an object. I will never own an object. You can't drag me back into this."

Better still:

A reporter is covering a rocket launch. The payload was contracted by a mysterious Billionaire, Joel Mueller. The payload is supposedly a secret that will be revealed after the payload is headed for deep space. After the Tesla stunt by Elon Musk, no one thinks much of it.

Shortly after the launch, the rocket explodes. As the reporter is observing and filming, a pair of scissors falls from the sky and hits the pavement so hard that they are halfway buried.

The reporter reaches for the scissors, but knowing better, goes to her car and gets a pair of tongs. She pulls the scissors out and puts them in an old lunch pail.

Later, fearing that the scissors may be radioactive, she shows them to a friend that is studying radiology. The friend is an attractive blonde in her 20's.

Examining the scissors, they realize that, although the scissors had hit the pavement so hard they were halfway buried, they seem to be in pristine condition.

The blonde girl says to her reporter friend, "These aren't radioactive. That's not the problem."

The reporter says, "You act like you know something about them."

"Yes," says the blonde girl, "I know what they are. The capsule was probably filled with these things."

The reporter asks her, "Do you know something about Joel Mueller?"

"Yes" says the blonde girl. "You see, before he changed his name to Joel Mueller, he was called Joe Miller. He is my father." She looks despairingly at the scissors and continues: "And these things are going to be all over the state. Anyone might have them, and it's going to start all over again."


Yet another idea:

A store clerk is digging through supplies in the back of a big box store and finds an old Polaroid. He looks at it and realizes that it is blank. He doesn't know what to make of it, so he puts it into his pocket and continues digging.

A few days later, he is driving through Gallup New Mexico with a friend. The friend opens their glove compartment and the Polaroid drops out. It is night time, but when the friend looks at the Polaroid, he sees a glowing object in the distance. He repeatedly holds the Polaroid up and down and realizes he can see the bright spot only when he is looking at the Polaroid.

He says to his friend that is driving, "Wait, stop for a minute." He shows his friend the Polaroid and they begin to experiment with it. Finally, they decide to drive to the place where the glow seems to be emanating.

They find nothing there but an old field, but they realize that the image in the field is now magnified to show a whole room. They walk around what would have been the room until they see the feet of a man. When they slide the Polaroid up, a face is revealed: Joe Miller.

They stay in the town over night and visit a restaurant the next day. One of the men holds the Polaroid up and looks at it.

Their waitress is a young woman in her twenties. She is surprised when she sees the Polaroid and asks the men where they got it. The young woman is Anna Miller.


Wow, I have just discovered a new test for writing skills and imagination. If someone cannot think of a compelling sequel to The Lost Room, they have no hope of becoming a writer. It's that easy.

I like the last one. Trying to get rid of them by sending them into space is a great idea.

Re: Possible Distinguished Visitor


It has been long enough now since the original series that a whole new mythology may have transpired since Joe left the room. The new series could be based partly on discoveries that old fans will quickly recognize and new revelations that follow naturally from the old ones. The possibilities are endless. Not creating a sequel to this series is like leaving money on the table.

Re: Possible Distinguished Visitor


The Lost Room had a lot of characteristics of Lost. It could indeed catch on in this environment.

I wonder if that was really Elle that visited? It seems plausible. If I were her and learned about this site, I would at least be curious. She would have registered as Elle in case she decided to post.
