The dialogue was really standard, there are some of the same fantasy cliches we've heard before in many other films and TV shows and the editing did feel a bit clunky at some parts. However, everything else is fine. The acting is still good with the best material coming from Manu Bennett and John Rhys-Davies who continue to shine with their separate characters Allanon and Eventine Elessedil, the ruler of the Elven Kingdom. The rest of the actors did marginally better than Part 1 and may have some potential if their characters could get compelling. The music score is still good, the pacing is very brisk, and the episode did leave a cliffhanger, hoping what would happen next.
So, overall, not nearly as good as Part 1, but the rest of the first season has a long way to go. :)
