The entire series sucks. Maybe if Masashi Kishimoto knew how to write like a real author. So yeah, those episodes sucked. They ALL sucked.
Then don't watch! Solved!
I DON'T watch it. That's the scary thing. If someone who doesn't even like or watch the series still ends up learning everything about it on accident, that's a sign of an overrated series. The spoilers are EVERYWHERE!! I'm tired of all the Naruto hype!! It ruined ninjas!
