The Amazing Spider-Man (1977)

Show Summary

This live-action drama followed the exploits of Peter Parker, a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle. Peter is bitten by a radioactive spider while on an assignment and gains the abilities of a spider. He can cling to walls and has the proportional strength and agility of a human-sized arachnid. Peter is also a part time college student at a local University where he is majoring in science. After receiving his new abilities, he constructs unique web-shooters which he wears on his wrists over the costume in this version, and later on only one wrist which allow him to swing from building to building and to catch crooks in a massive web. This version of the wall-crawler's exploits suffered from a low effects budget and long periods of hiatus between episodes. Still it holds pride of being the first live-action version of the comic book hero. Over the thirty-plus years since the TV series first debuted, this show has become a cult favorite.moreless
