Agreed, but I don't think they were aiming for an epic fight so much as they were just trying to introduce a plot point (that the humanforms will seek out his xam'd if he doesn't seal it up). If you think of it like that, they actually did a damn good job of giving us a short fight scene, rather than just having some character talk about it.
Also, this show continues to amaze me by having lots of decent dialogue, only a few lines in ep. 3 were kinda groan-worthy. Course, I still hope we get more solid fight scenes later on.
