The main problem with the fillers is not so much the quality of the fillers themselves (though in many that's also an issue), but that there are so damned many of them, often all in a row for large chunks of the series, and they seriously interrupt the flow of the show, ruining important momentum.

My opinion is that they mostly are not very entertaining, and don't add anything very interesting to the main story. If I knew then what I know now, I'd skip them.

With the exception of episode 230, because it was quite funny, and was part of a filler arc that fit well between pieces of the main story and didn't interrupt interesting things in progress.

Oh yeah, moved this to Advice, Info, Recommendations.

Yes, yes there are. In fact, right now the show is basically in one of them.

Um, which arc was that, and how long was it? Maybe not.

This seems like a pretty good guide:

There are frequent bunches of 15 to 20 or more filler eps in a row. This year is perhaps the worst, with only 8 canon episodes since January, with just one or two canon episodes followed by many filler, then another 1 or 2 canon, then filler...

I watch them but I find most of them crap. They keep interruting the arc, no story or canon or no canon. But the arc. Witch is what I hate about Naruto filler.
