A whole lot of Battlestar Galactica episodes, particularly Season 4.5. Those filler episodes ruined an otherwise awesome show.

Babylon 5 generally had good fillers, and they're well-placed too.

Worst filler ever? The last episode of Samurai Jack.

There is one good filler episode of DBZ, where Goku and piccolo learn how to drive a car. That was just hilarious and a decent way to go into a lighter mood.

Dear Hal, Axell, NemZ, and Defectron,

Yeah I remember that one. I did like the Filler saga against Pikkon though.

Sailor Moon R's Makaiju Arc which Chaz already mentioned is decent filler. Other than that I can't think of much else.

I liked a few of the Inu-Yasha fillers...

Like the one that showed some of InuYasha and Kikyou's past.

They where a filler since Dratz and The Legendary Dragons Gods never was in the Manga . The Virtual World saga in Yu-Gi-Oh was good too.

The DBZ fillers didn't really bother me.

I did find it funny when Goku was fighting Frieza

Frieza wrote:This planet will explode in 5 minutes


...and the fight lasted about 3 or 6 episodes.

or I might be wrong. It has been a couple of years since I've seen DBZ.

Do fights lasting way longer than they are supposed to count as filler?

I found the fillers in DBZ to be annoying since they cause so much confusion of cannon and non cannon like Super Buu scream which it was mention to destroy the whole Galaxy in a ease.

Bleach filler is the most annoying to me, because Bleach was my favorite show on TV for quite some time and then outta nowhere, BAM Bleach vampires??? No!

That said, I think the Bleach filler at least look good on paper... I mean the Bounto arc in particular. A shinigami traitor, vampire dudes with battle dolls... not bad ideas for filler. But the execution was so piss poor... I can count on one hand the number of episodes which had really good quality animation.

But its most grevious sin to me is how, after the Arrancar arc started they INSISTED on including an episode with Kariya Jin for some reason. We... didn't really want to see him again guys. You were back on track! why this, now?!

And don't even get me started on the whole 'episodic' filler they introduced like right in the middle of the Arrancar arc... That about made me stop watching.

Aside from Bleach, filler isn't really all that bad to me. At least Garlic Jr. showed Gohan getting stronger and made the later parts where his powers were awakened more seamless. Not necessary, I know, but not bad.

Haruhi filler. Anything between the 6 main eps was still gold.
