The Charmings got their groove back
14 March 2006 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

The transition from Caitlin O'Heaney to Carol Huston as Snow White Charming between seasons was particularly difficult for regular viewers. O'Heaney played the role to campy perfection, while Huston played it pretty straight. While the previous two episodes of the series weren't bad (there wasn't a BAD episode in the entire run), they lacked the punch that had made the first season so hilarious.

But in this episode, the cast seemed to slip back into the groove that was reminiscent of the first season -- and Huston really began to make the role of Snow her own. The writing was sharp, the cast was all in top form, and "Addams Family" veteran John Astin was brilliantly cast in a large guest role (it's a shame the show didn't last long enough for him to return). On the flip-side, some of the special effects were truly terrible (they often tried to pull sight gags that were beyond their budget), but it still worked within the context of this broad farce.

All-in-all, one of the best episodes of season 2.
