An improvement over the previous episode, although not perfect

Having not read the books yet, I became interested and watched the first season. The first episode wasn't great but it had a great world introduction and some good casting choices while the second episode, while not in the same league as episode 1, had some improvements including better CGI and the actors for the main characters aside from Manu Bennett and John Rhy Davies did better performances.

Episode 3 is an improvement over the previous episode and is pretty good albeit not excellent. There are some problems like the forced love triangle that happened too soon and much like the last two episodes, it has some of the same standard fantasy cliches in the script.

However, there are lots of things to like. Many Bennett and John Rhy Davies continue to impress with their separate roles as Allanor and the Elven King and while the rest of the actors have a long way to go, they still have some good moments as the main characters. The production design looks stylish and gorgeous, the CGI is once again much better, the music score is still good, and the action moments aren't that bad at all particularly at the beginning where episode 2 left off.

Overall, not a classic episode, but hopefully the first season would get better. :)
