Charming's back-story made this episode worth it!
1 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although it doesn't reach the compelling story in the previous episode and some of the dialog isn't as fresh this time around, The Shepard is a nice episode and it does explore Charming's back-story really well and goes back to develop David, Charming's modern counterpart.

The story is good, the dialog is decent, and the script is solid. The acting is also great, especially from Charming/David you feel the situation that he's been going through. His interactions with the other characters is spot on, too. And that's about it.

Overall, not excellent, but a really good episode with a nice back- story for the prince. Review for next episode, coming soon!
