Trivia

David Lynch and Monty Montgomery attempted a similar, albeit more 'them' version of this idea - also on HBO - in 1993. Their series, known as Hotel Room, spanned a single three-part episode with a different cast for each segment. The series took place in room 603 of the New York City-based "Railroad Hotel" in the years 1969, 1992, and 1936, respectively. The three episodes were created to be shown together in the form of a feature-length pilot. Unfortunately, the reception was very lukewarm and it was not picked up for further production. See more »

A series with loads of potential
30 July 2017 | by firestorm-96702See all my reviews

I'm a fan of TV shows that differ from episode to episode, in the sense that they are not story grounded to an end game; ie: getting off an island, stopping a bomb from exploding etc..etc.

Nothing wrong with grounded story lines, but I prefer a TV series that can morph its episodes giving the viewer that, "expect the unexpected" feel each episode.

This TV series IS grounded however, not to a particular story line, but to a room, a room where the strangest things can happen.

Walking into room 104 is like walking out of reality and into a hybrid reality, a mirage as it were.

This allows a lot of flexibility for the producers of the show to work with, and since it's localized to a room , it's also going to be a cheap series to make.

This episode I'm reviewing, episode 1, is not a comedy episode (though I did laugh once or twice) it's more of a drama/thriller episode that goes for just over 22 minutes.

It never gets boring, even when nothing seems to be happening as there is that weird "What's going to happen next!" feeling going on throughout the episode.

All in all, a simple story well executed with acting on par.

I don't want to say much about the story line of this episode other than: Babysitter/young boy, things get weird (but not in a perverse way) bizarre twist at the end.
