This is actually a filler that actually kept me interested. So that in itself makes this episode really good. It had the usual Naruto antics in it and some good action. There were a couple of funny parts in this episode as well.
Another part of this episode that was really good was when everyone is trying to catch up to Gaara. It reminded me of the Sasuke Retrieval Arc so that made me pretty happy.
So, overall, this was a good filler episode and I can't wait for the next one. I just wish that Feb. 15th would get here sooner.
