    Previously on Shippuden: Well, that's one arc down. Don't expect things to get much better.

    Last time: The end of the previous arc.

    This time: Time to get reacquainted with some more old friends from the first series.

    Well Shikamaru, I can relate, but seriously, all you need to is reach your arm over and hit the snooze button.

    One of the only few times in the series Kakashi doesn't have his face mask on, and Naruto is still curious.

    I'll talk about that when we get to it, but yeah, that's pretty much the only one that's anywhere near decent. IMO

    I was gonna point that out, but I was afraid you would go on about how the previous arc was a waste of time (and that's not to say I don't think the arc had pacing problems).

    Yeah, umm...just a reminder: Sasuke wasn't kidnapped or anything. He left of his own free. So this whole rescuing him angle really doesn't make any sense.

    Exactly. I don't understand their need to "save" him when he made his choice. He basically said screw the Leaf Village, I say screw him.

    Of course, just recently Naruto didn't believe Garra had died for... several episodes. I guess being in denial is just natural for him.

    The worst part is how even Sakura and Tsunade are on board with the idea.

    Look, Naruto, I know it's been three years, but these guys really don't look THAT different.

    You know it is a damn shame that they barely use Shino
