  • 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.

    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.
