The second half of the season has certainly been better than the first but then we come to an episode like this...essentially just a filler to make up the required order of episodes.
It isn't that this episode is necessarily bad or boring, it's just that it really doesn't contribute much. I'll say it again: if you have to have dull, filler episodes you might as well reduce the size of the season and have maintain quality.
The season is almost at an end now and I hope that they make more of an effort with next season. About half of season one has been disappointing and had it been Fox, I am sure the season would have been cancelled.
