have only seen 2 episodes and its great just remember anything goes with hbo

ok I have started watching this and have only seen 2 episodes but heres my input I really like it so far and plan to watch more it really proves the old message of everything isn't always what it seems 'that's how the good messages come in ' and there is usually one good person per episode 'again I sat usually' however content varies from episode to episode the first episode was pretty much harmless 'content wise' while the next one had 4 shots of naked breasts and strong profanity 'so play it by ear with teens but anyone who likes a good scary story should give this one a look

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This offbeat series combines various genres of indie storytelling with Twilight Zone-like horror. Each story takes place entirely inside the hotel room, and only features a few characters. This is effective, thanks to the tightly written stand-alone narratives that feature their own unique twists.

Adding to Room 104's appeal are appearances by actors like Orlando Jones, James Van Der Beek, and even Jay Duplass himself. But what makes Room 104 entertaining is its ability to creates a weird and imaginative world out of a small, nondescript place that seems so common from the outside.
