So... I'm the only one who liked Jar Jar AND the prequels?
I wasn't a huge fan of Jar Jar, but I have to say he was far from the worst part of the prequels. That honor goes to the sequence where C-3PO gets his head exchanged with a battle droid. Compared to that, Jar Jar emanates gravitas.
The prequels were a mixed bag for me. I actually loved Episode I, because it told a fairly self-contained story and introduced a great number of awesome settings. I liked Episode II less; while it also had a great deal of awesome new settings, its plot seemed a little threadbare (and scenes like the aforementioned 3PO scene were painful to watch). And Episode III was okay, but nothing special; it had forgettable settings and the plot seemed to only exist to connect the previous prequels to the originals. All in all, I agree with the majority opinion that the prequels were not as good as the original trilogy on the whole, but I still think they get a lot of undue hate. At worst they're still decent movies; nowhere near the awfulness of, say, The Last Airbender.
