The most hated character in the Star Wars universe continues his ridiculous existence into The Clone Wars as he and Padme head to a remote planet to try and keep allies in the war. It makes absolutely no sense that serious politicians would ever have anyone so stupid around them and it drags the whole episode down. The planet has fallen to the Separatists and Padme is taken hostage as Jar-Jar attempts to save her.
Being mistaken for a Jedi, Jar-Jar gets the droids in a state of disrepair mostly through accident. Padme ultimately saves herself and Jar-Jar's existence in the episode is rendered pointless. The plot progression is the only positive, as Nute Gunray is captured.
