Sep 15, 2013Season 2 was pretty good and I thoroughly enjoyed it. However, a little less than I did Season 1.
Don't get me wrong, it was still a damn good season that in most respects was better in overall quality, but it also lacked the freshness that the first season had. This can not be helped.
Most of the character's do a great job. Regina & Rumpelstiltskin are given such depth, that they are clearly my favorite characters. Hook is a great addition. I really hope they keep him and expand on his character.
Henry was, in my opinion, the weakest. Not the character, but the writing for the character. He did alright in the first season, but this time round he comes across a little bit hammy. He may be a kid, but no kid that age is that immature and corny.
While many might moan, I loved the increase of the fairy tale aspect and also the increase in effects. However I also felt this season had allot more exposition and filler than season 1. Granted, season 1 was dominantly exposition, it is to be expected from the opening season of any show.
Season was great and added allot to the already immersive lore. However, less filler, more entertaining content.… Full Review »
