    Cheezy fun...If you are a Spiderman fan, then you should see it... If you are a fan of campiness, the you should see it too.

    By catfishman, Oct 07, 2010

    Before you go on, I have to say this: this show really doesn\\\'t deserve the 7.4 that I gave it if I were to look at it subjectively... but I\\\'m not doing that.

    I gave this show a 7.4 because I loved this show when I was a child of 8. I never forgot the very few episodes that I watched (they only made 14 or so of them), and never saw them again until recently. Like many shows that I remember being really cool in my childhood, this one didn\\\'t age very well. Even so, I get a little kick out of seeing it again. Part of it is the laugh I get seeing the cheeziness of it all and another part is the feeling I get remembering the way I reacted when I was a kid...

    Watch it, don\\\'t expect much and just have fun.moreless

    The first live-action adaptation of Spider-Man revises much of the comics' storylines, such as dropping the characters of Mary Jane and Aunt May and omitting all super-villains.

    By fontayorooney73, Apr 21, 2009

    Put this show in the category of chessy fun. This show wasn't terrible, per se, but it wasn't great, either. The style of superhero shows in the '70s was to avoid any over-the-top and/or supernatural villains altogether, so there are no Green Goblins, Doc Ocks, etc. to be found here. Other 70s efforts (Wonder Woman, Hulk) managed to work around that and still have some measure of success, but Spider-Man didn't last nearly as long. Perhaps the most glaring mistake was that they altered the non-supernatural characters too much, taking away Aunt May and Mary Jane to replace them with characters who didn't add much. This show is an interesting diversion, as long as you don't expect too much.moreless

    I'm of fan of cheesy things and if you are too than this show just might hit the spot.

    Spider-man probobly was a corny thing back in the day but I think that it holds a special place in the hearts of hard core spirey fans. Don't discount the seriousness in which the people who actually had to shoot this thing took it. They were approached with an impossible task of making this seem actually cool and interesting. The worst of it is the web shooters on the outside of the costume,eehh! In the end you just might get a bigger laugh than you expected and probobly more unitentional laughs than yoou imagined. This will always be looked upon as a laughable chapter in the miney making Spiderman series.moreless

    One word for me…NOSTALGIA!

    By Redio, Aug 25, 2006

    I watched this show as a kid and loved it. I mean, I was a kid and Spider-man is a superhero, right? Watching as an adult, it is not so impressive. This show oozes “70’s”. Although the stories and acting aren’t all that bad, what hampers this particular show is the special effects. They had no computer animation or effects and obviously a low budget. I am sure the producers made the best of it, because, let’s face it…actually making someone look like they are climbing walls and ceilings, and shooting webs from their wrists is not that easy; and with a low budget even harder. Nevertheless, it takes me back to my childhood and fond memories, and that counts for something.moreless

    about a guy who gets bit by a radioactive spider

    By CancerTheCrab, Jul 22, 2006

    i liked spider-man! the storywas very good, and you actally feel for the main charater, peter. those who are afraid of spiders do not be afraid to watch this show because once peter gets bit there really are no other spiders to scare you. well you should watch it!

    Spider-man, Spider-man

    Does whatever a spider can

    Spins a web, any size

    Catches thieves, just like flies

    Look out! Here comes the Spider-man!

    Is he strong? Listen, Bud!

    He's got radioactive blood.

    Can he swing from a thread?

    Take a look overhead.

    Hey there, there goes the Spider-man!

    Spider-man, Spider-man

    Friendly neighborhood Spider-man

    Wealth and fame, he's ignored

    Action is his reward

    the endmoreless

    The 1970's version of the crime fighter Spiderman.

    By vicmackey31, May 17, 2006

    The 1970's version of the crime fighter Spiderman. This was a non-animated version and a little bit campy but not as much as the 60's Batman program. Nicholas Hammond starred as Peter Parker and Spiderman. Other stars included David White as J. Jonah Jameson in the pilot after which Robert F. Simon took over the role. The rest of the cast was filled out with Michael Pataki as Captain Barbera, Ellen Bry as Julie Masters and Chip Hurd as Rita Conway. Spiderman of course was a photographer named Peter parker when he was not catching bad guys. A fun show to watch but don't look for it on a list of past Emmy winners.
