Has the same problems as the pilot, but still delivers!
12 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After the pilot episode kept me hooked, I gave the second episode a shot and it's the same as the pilot. The story is very solid and introduces the backstory to how the huntsman first met Snow White. The characters are still very likable enough and the acting is still strong. The scenery and visuals are beautiful, the costumes still amaze me, the music score remains enchanting while keeping an atmospheric tone to it, and the direction is solid. However, it does have the same problems as the previous episode such as the dialog, which was alright, but still have it's clichéd moments, and some moments where it's a bit cheesy. Overall, same issues as the pilot, but still delivers! :) 8/10
