The thing about "fillers" is, episodes that did little in terms of tournaments, gym battles, or even bonding between characters aren't necessarily bad. Some people find pleasure in the simple little everyday heroism, some people don't. That's the bottom line. Sure there may have been some long moments, but I've enjoyed every bit of it. And Cyber, you're gonna need to link to a blog from him or something if you expect anybody to take that statement seriously.
