yeah i think that too david, but it was an OK episode, some of the animations in the fighting of naruto vs the earth type dude were a bit weird (rasengan went to fast, weird morphing of the body) but it was OK
he is in his new body but he can change the form of it making it look like his old self(?):S
this episode really creaped me out.....i mean..sakura wasnt as annoying as she usally is she was more one of the guys if she keeps this up il have to scratch her of the list (list=most annoying sobs ever known in any anime).
That's because filler episodes tend to screw up the personalities of the characters and make them do/say things that seem out of place (just look at the one about Kakashi). There were also several really awkward scene transitions that I found kind of annoying... just poorly done. Aside from that the filler isn't so bad but it's not so great either.
