THE BIG DOOR PRIZE lit a fire under the Zamboni man this week. Being a “front man” is now a thing of utmost importance. Better yet, build a saloon. 

What havoc surrounds the Morpho machine? Is it “projecting mid-life crises” for the entire town? Or can the people learn to let it go and be anything they dare to dream? So far, the novelty is not wearing off, and those little blue cards are worth everything for some. I fear the writers will not share any answers soon since they hold the audience in their hands. It is a most uncomfortable position. My brain is constantly asking if this is another LOST moment. Or will everyone wake up one day and discover the entire series was a DALLAS dream? In other words, I need something. I want to understand the “Colton” effect on his team, family, and friends. I feel like OLIVER asking for “more, please.” My lack of patience is showing. 

THE BIG DOOR PRIZE does not feel like anyone is in the winner’s circle. The story is far too foggy. I am unsure I even care what my blue card would say, but I would never waste my quarters. Life is too short. Just ask Colton.

It is available to stream on APPLE TV+.
