I think that a few of the points Frank brought up are valid but I have watched the show a little farther in. To avoid spoilers I will skip WHY I think it ties in well with the previous seasons but you don't realize why some things are happening until later on. There are a few predictable parts and one or two unnecessaries but lets face it, what anime doesn't have a few of each of those. Overall I think its pretty good so far and don't mind the slower plot compared to last seasons
