Moments of revelations and conclusions surfaced in THE BIG DOOR PRIZE. Key players were finally pondering the right questions. And the results could be, meteorology speaking, disastrous. 

The school announcement and class discussion were my favorite scenes. I love “coming clean” moments. The dialogue was swift and compelling. I still have about a zillion questions for the Morpho that I know will not be answered in next week’s finale. There is not much more I can say being a spoiler-free site. I am not a huge fan of this show as I was when it first began. I do not like a dialogue that asks question after question. I do that daily and believe me, it annoys a bunch of my family. I like revealing some answers occasionally. Otherwise, it makes me feel LOST. 

THE BIG DOOR PRIZE wants everyone to “face their fears.” Michelle Obama says precisely the same thing in her second book, THE LIGHT WE CARRY. Only she writes much better, more to the point, and with fabulous stories. “TADA” does not make it so for THE BIG DOOR PRIZE, even if you add blue ink dots on the skin.

It is available to stream on APPLE tv+.
