  • The Only Enjoyable Show Left, and defintely one of the top animated 3 shows this decade.

    10
    Whenever you see shows these days (particularly cartoons), u wonder who ever wants to see this junk, shows nowadays are bland, either that or they have some sort of new-age comedy i dont understand.

    But when i see the spectacular spiderman i see that least peice of thread, and that peice of thread represents shows that are actually enjoyable, its not like the useless junk they put on TV now.

    This show offers entertainment like no other, it has a cleverly twisted plot that differs from the comics, the movies, and even the other TV shows. The characters are actually given emotions, the storyline is extremely addicting and will always leave you asking for more.

    To be fair, i think i can call this a nearly flawless show, there are of course little tweaks here and there (like the fact that they kinda messed up Venom), but compared to other shows, they are invisble.

    When "Danny Phantom" and "Avatar: The Last Airbender" dissapeared from television, i lost hope that i would ever find a show like those ever again, but now when i see, "The Spectacular Spider-Man" i definitely see a show that IS in fact Spectacular. So its fun, entertaining, addicting, and it offers alot of action, and a worthy storyline. So why not watch it? arent those the requirmens of a excellent TV show?
  • Delightfully surprised and now slightly obessesed...

    Alright, I'll admit it: I was skeptical at first. I mean have you seen those big eyed, weird looking characters? Before watching the the show I wikipedia-ed it and found they had made some some changes and I wasn't sure about this whole set in high school thing (Actually the first comerical I saw with Spidey proclaiming he had to be home by ten made visualize him singing "we're all in this together.."). However, after watching the first few episodes I was pleasantly surprised. All the classic characters are there (even Gwen:/), the most changes are updates (let's make the spider gentically altered and give Peter Parker and co. cell phones!) others are much needed back stories and slight changes to plot (for once the Goblin Arc was actually a bit of a mystery and Eddy Broc is now Peter's friend/older brother figure). The jokes are actually funny, and the theme song is bound to get stuck in your head. But most importantly, Peter's school/homelife is protrayed in believable and again, suprisingly, mature way. We can totally buy this akward, gifted kid just trying to take care of his aunt and sort through his many issues. And who doesn't love good old lound mouthed J. Jonah Jamerson? Although the jury is still out on wheter or not it's better than the ninites Spidey it's defintly "Spectacular" (or if you prefer "Amazing).
  • The Batman TAS of the Marvel cartoon universe, and Weisman is the new Bruce Timm.

    *** This review may contain spoilers ***

    When the show first came out, the designs were understandably peculiar to the standard Spider-Man fans out there, waiting for the definitive Spider-Man cartoon which promised to be more faithful to the heart of the comics than ever before. We were all skeptical.

    The show has blown us all away. Greg Weisman has turned his rather simplistic designs into works of art, and it incorporates by far the best action seen on a Spider-Man show. The show might be a little hard to digest if you're viewing it from the first episode, but it becomes far FAR better when watching it in order. Each episode is set in arc form---meaning that 3 episodes of each season are all intertwined to create a sort of serial which balances off the other episodes. So as a result, there are no filler episodes---each has their own purpose, and although the 90s show accomplished this---you'd be lost if you missed more than 2 episodes of the season. Beware, this show is set from a younger Spider-Man, as to how he appeared from the Ditko era, so the tone will be a tad lighter within the supporting characters---but the show is still markedly more mature than the FOX Spider-Man show. The relationships are also changed a tad from the comics. Harry and Gwen are now best friends with Pete in high school, and as jarring as that sounds---each develop their own purpose. Gwen has been given a geek look, which might upset some purists who believe she should be a beauty queen---but her character will make sense as the show moves along. Also refreshing---Mary Jane for once is not the MAIN love interest. Hell, she doesn't even appear until the 6th episode. There are also an extremely large supporting cast, which makes the transition from Spider-Man to Peter Parker no big deal. Heck, you might even want to see what happens to Pete instead of his alter-ego.

    When dealing with bad guys, the tone of the show shifts from fairly dark to brutal, and the violence is amped up completely from FOX. If you're worried about censors, don't be---because the show doesn't hold back---it delivers. The guns are thankfully real, with quite a few 9 mms and machine guns being seen === and not lasers, (if you can get past the laser sounds.) What the show does best is that it doesn't speak down to the kid audience, because I believe that Weisman made it more for the fans if anything. The show becomes pretty deep, and a lot of the material could be seen as heavy, but its no more than the DCAU Bruce Timm universe. There are references to death threats as well which is welcome. So, bottom line, the show has gone on long enough to where I can say its the best version of Spidey out right now, that doesn't talk down to the kiddies, and is a throwback to the 90s when shows could be intelligent and non compromising at the same time.
  • It surely lives up to name SPECTACULAR!

    Everyone knows the story of Peter Parker as Spider-Man. (You should otherwise you must live in a box.) When Spider-Man premiered, it captured my heart. To be honest, there hasn't been a lot of shows I would be gladly to watch re-runs of. It's shows like The Spectacular Spider-Man that inspire me one day to become a swell writer.

    Why do I love this show to death:

    The show is smart, funny, and each episode leaves you wanting more. How each season is divided into story arcs allowing more than just one main villian unlikely to the Spider-Man of 94 (It was always Kingpin, Kingpin, Morphius, Kingpin... I grew with that and all but this show....this show is just spectacularly well done.)

    Peter Parker proves that (yeah...oh, yeah) even the nerd can get the cheerleader. We see Peter Parker's life at high school (which I can relate..) I love watching the teenage escapades of high school through the ever-so youthful eyes of Peter Parker.

    The supervillain battles are superb! Each postition is original and deeply remembered. The animation was simplified to show more movement. (which is what I like to see!) His quotes are so funny that I still remember to this day. (I'm hoping to use one of those quotes someday.)

    Overall, The Spectacular Spider-Man has everything I could ever want in a show. High School Drama! Best Friend(s) overdoses on symboite and "the juice". It has a nerd becoming seirously popular! Underlined humor and plotlines that leaves you wanting more. The only I asked from The Spectacular Spider-Man is another NEW episode.
  • I grew up with the 90's version, but this, oh man, this is so much better. The writing, the action, the voice acting and the story! Oh boy it's great. Especially if you watch it in HD.

    I recently started following this series on Disney XD, I've seen a handful of episodes and man it's pretty good. The show focuses on the adventures of Spiderman/Peter Parker and his daily ordeals as he deals with High School. Some of the issues Peter faces include trying to help his Aunt pay the bills, trying to maintain a friendship with Gwen Stacey, and Eddie Brock, while trying to help his friend Harry who has a strained relationship with his father, and not to mention battle a bunch of tough enemies. The show is very well written, and the action sequences are just incredible. They aren't lazy, and the voice acting is superb. I actually like this version better then the 90's version which I thought was a bit to hokey and cheesy at some parts, and not to mention he couldn't really do any fighting in that version. In this version he is able to use all of his abilities. I hope this series keeps going because it's so entertaining.

    Wow. Just wow. This series is one of the most amazing things to grace Saturday morning T.V. Season 1 is amazing, introducing so amny great characters. The first arc was a great start to the series. It did an amazing job with all the villains. The second arc adds on to the mystery of the Big Man, who at first I thought was going to be Kingpin. When I saw who it was I was so surprised! Tombstone as a crimelord is great. The Green Goblin arc was pure genius, giving us a good mystery to solve. The symbiote arc was surely a great one. This show's version of Venom (or Doc Ock for that matter) are not the best. Venom was just way too mad at Peter, for taking pictures...of the Lizard...and not going to the dance with Gwen. Seriously. Ock just goes from crazed maniac to Master Planner, to crimelord. Not the best interpretation. Season 2 starts off with the Master Planner arc. Which introduces some villains into the show. Mysterio, man, I just loved him.Kraven, he's okay. Final episode of the MP arc was amazing. Loved the comic book reference. The Venom arc was really good. Not great, good. Captain Jupiter was out there, though. Th final fight between Venom and Spiderman was sooo great. The Gang War arc. I really like this one. And finally Tombstone appears again! He had not been there all season! Silver Sable was stupendous here. The Enforcers return, in new costumes. And the four way fight between Spiderman, Silver Mane, Doc Ock, and Tombstone was one of my favorite fight scenes. And...THE GREEN GOBLIN! He returns! And we see Molten Man introduced, and then Black Cat comes back, with a new twist on who her father is! And finally we see who the Green Goblin REALLY is. I'm sure you know. And it is kinda scary how the theories of most of these people were right! All the way down to Chameleon! Scerry. And Peter FINALLY breaks up with Liz. But cant get back with Gwen because Harry is being a control freak!! And made Gwen feel bad for him. How low can he get? I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY, RECCOMRND this SPECTACULAR show. Heres to a third season!
  • Your friendly neighborhood spider-man

    We all know the story. Boy goes on class field trip, boy meets radioactive spider, spider bites boy, boy develops super powers instead of cancer, boy becomes Spider-man. It's a story as well known as Superman and one would think that it would get stale. However creator Greg Weisman(Gargoyles) has taken a shot at his vision of spider-man and what a great vision it is.

    The show starts out with Spider-man(a teenager) having spent the past summer fighting crime is looking forward to shedding his form nerd persona in exchange for top man on campus. Things dont go so well and he remains on the bottom of the social ladder. Add on to that supervillains have started coming out left and right and Spidey's has his arms full.

    The character designs on the show are incredbly simplistic but because of this the animation is very fluid and seamless which is how spidey should move. The best thing is that the show is made so that it can appeal to literally everyone. The kids will watch it for spidey, Teens would watch it for the teenage angst the characters go through(which are more accurate here than in the so called "teen dramas"), and adults can marvel at the mature subject matter that the show doesnt dumb down. With cartoons nowadays seemingly focusing on nothing moore than loud noises Spectacular Spider-man is a gem set to be a classic.
  • Spectacular indeed.

    10
    Spider-Man has had a number of hit-and-misses when it comes to animated versions of himself. Either he's done quite well, or quite poorly. Spectacular Spider-Man, however, is the webslinger's best animated work by far, for a number of reasons.

    The first, by far, is the script. It's taut, witty, and places extremely close to the comic mythos. Spider-Man's quips come across as genuinely funny, while the teenage angst sets the tone for Peter Parker's awkward life. It never feels corny, nor too serious; it's a perfect blend of fun.

    Second, also by far, is the animation. Spider-Man's movements are fluid and fast, as are the movements of his enemies. Fights go all over the place, and can be quite over-the-top, but you never feel things are getting ridiculous. You really feel like Spider-Man is fighting tooth-and-nail when he tangles with foes like Doctor Octopus, Tombstone, Green Goblin, or Venom.

    Third is a well-done all-star cast. This show uses many staple characters from the Spider-Man comics, and portrays them very faithfully (at least, from what I've heard). Nods to the comics are everywhere, and while a liberty or two may be taken with a character, it never feels like a disservice to the originals.

    Spectacular Spider-Man is easily the best Spider-Man cartoon to date, and may well be the best Marvel Comics cartoon to date as well.

    I patiently await (and hope for) the third season's arrival.

  • SPECTACULAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

    9.5
    This show is GREAT! I really like the styles of the characters and that they give them slightly different looks than their comic counterparts. The action is fast-paced and smooth. They have a lot of hilarious parts in the show. Spider-man has the funniest sayings and comebacks.

    They picked really good voice actors for the show. everyone sounds great. They look like they are going to take this show deep into the comics. I've seen some characters that will have some part in the show later. I also like there is a backstory to every episode and most of the time continues to the next until it's the main story for the episode. great show!!
  • This show I must admit a had my doubts about it at first.

    10
    This show,I must admit a had my doubts about it at first, but not anymore. I did not start at the beginning, the first episode I watched was Market Forces (episode 4) and after watching the episode Catalysts (episode 7) I was hooked.
    In season 1 almost ever episode a new super villain would appeared in total 10 villain in 13 episodes is a lot in just one season, so in season 2 the creators gave us only 6 super villains, but that does not mean that we are short changed, no we get a gang war the Master Planner all the villains from season 1 return (the Lizard is the only one not to come back for second round)and we also get new and improved team members for the sinister six and the Enforcers.
    I have high hopes for season 3.
  • Peter Parker gets bitten by a genetically enhanced spider which grants him super human powers to fight evil...

    10
    Awesome show, may not look good on first look, but if you give it a chance and watch 2 or 3 episodes you'd get addicted like me...

    The villains may seem lame from first look, but later on they're even cooler than they are in TAS, the moves, the suits, everything, I hope they base upcoming Spidey movies on villains from this series, like Shocker and Rhino, and not the wussies they were in TAS.:P

    Definitely lives up to the old 1994 TAS and better, can't wait to see more episodes produced.

    Dammit can't believe we have to wait 7 months for next season to start, I want Spectacular Spidey NOW :'(.
  • Beautiful Animation, witful dialogue and great fight scenes

    9.0
    All those three add up to a perfect Spider-Man show. This in some aspects is better than the spider-man show that appeared on FOX. Though the one in fox was more emotionally and more in depth. This series is more comical and is just fun to watch. The theme song shows that the series is vibrant. I also like that show doesn't have the tight censor restrictions that the fox series had. This is one of my favorite animated marvel animated series. At first I was wary of this show, but I have grown to enjoy it very much. I hope I see more of the show in the future.
  • Starts off with a great pilot and just gets better.

    10
    When I heard about a new Spider-Man cartoon coming out, I was certainly excited. Even more excited when finding out that Greg Weisman was going to be involved with the cartoon (Given his work on Gargoyles).

    Seeing the first two episodes made the wait worthwhile. Already the show had:

    - Funny quips from Spider-Man.
    - Developing story.
    - Likable characters.

    Weisman and crew have stated their intentions to keep the show close to the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko era and I have to say that they do even better. As much as I enjoy the Lee/Ditko tales, the formula wears a bit thin, where as the cartoon pulls the formula off without it being redundant.

    I'm sticking with this series to the end (which hopefully will not be soon).
  • a hole new series of peter parker's life and spider man

    10
    no wonder this show is called the spectacular spider man because it pretty is spectacular. A lot of fun filled action and the story just keeps getting better by each episode. this show may at a point aim kids satisfaction but by watching it i think teens and adults can watch it with their little brother or sister and enjoy it with them. At first when I watched it I thought by just looking at it wouldn't be interesting, but I was 100% wrong. I think it deserves a good score because of the quality of excitement. once again nice work spider man
  • The title of the show says it all

    10
    The Spectacular Spider-man is the newest show about Spider-man. This show is based mostly off of the original comics, but has ideas from other Spider-man media such as the Ultimate Spider-man comics and the films by Sam Raimi. All sorts of references are made to other Spider-man universes. This show has all the characters, Liz Allen, Flash, MJ, Gwen, Peter, Jonah, May, Conners, and Eddie Brock and more. The storyline follows up with Peter in his junior high school year and starts to fight supervillains for the first time such as the enforcers, Vulture, Electro, Lizard, Shocker, Sandman, Rhino, Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Chameleon, and Venom, and more such as Mysterio, Tinkerer and Kraven in the 2nd season. What makes this show great is that it has taken ideas from all of Spider-man and put them together with some new ideas straight from the makers' heads. The storyline is spectacular, the villains are spectacular, the humor is spectacular, everything is, as the title suggests, spectacular. I do have a few problems, like there are certain things I feel weren't done in a good way, such as how he defeated Venom in the season one finale, and there are a few other things could use some improvement, but these problems are minor at most and overall, this show is spectacular.
  • The spectacular adventures of Peter Parker, aka Spiderman.

    10
    After watching the Sam Raimi Spiderman movies, I went on a binge, buying up and reading all of the Spiderman comics that I could find on the Internet. I came to the conclusion that the movies get close to, but don't completely capture, the flavor of the comics. This series, however, is a perfect adaptation of the comics. It makes a few tweaks here and there, and it updates the concept (which is a great thing since Spiderman comics premiered in the Sixties as nearly as I can determine) but the spirit of Spiderman, as developed by his original creators, is on full display here. I love the animation and the voice-work, the writing has snap, there's action and comedy, and the episodes build upon one another, just like the issues of a comic.
  • First Spiderman cartoon I watched, still the best...

    10
    I got hooked during the first episode when Spidey pulled at the mustache of one of his enemies during his fight with Tombstone's men. Laughed out LOUD on that one! Everything is done right in this show - funny convos between characters, great unfolding of his origin story spread through many episodes, LOL physical comedy moments, great character development of every major character in the show (including Spidey's enemies), theatrical bad guy monologues. Overall, a great show!
  • So Spidey

    10
    Although the Abstract drawing of the characters is not my style, I did get used to it. But the absolute best part of the series is the dialogue. I have read Spider-Man comics since 1971. The original. And the way Spidey interacts with any villain in the series makes me feel like I'm reading right out of one of his books. Example, check out his first fight scene with the Black Cat. The whole thing is classic Spidey.

    And of course the one thing missing from Parkers life and also other media about his story. Gwen Stacey. Who could forget who he loved through all his hardest moments in the beginning. The one thing that made sense in his life. This was a MAIN character!!! And then to have it taken away by the Goblin. That whole story had me so upset and mad, it took me years to recover.

    Good voices. good dialogue and good storyline.

    My last word. Bring it back and keep it.

    A few parts are from "EvanWilder"'s review.



    There are so many things right with this TV show! As you can see, everyone, counting me, loves it!



    Characters: We have everyone in this show(Heck, even Gwen Stacy!) They're really interesting and done correctly. They were given a lot of emotion. Not a single one is hateable(Not even Flash!)! Peter Parker proves that even the nerd can get the cheerleader. We see Peter Parker's life at high school, as well. I love watching the teenage escapades of high school through the ever-so youthful eyes of Peter Parker. Everyone else was excellent.



    Plot: The plot was really deep. It was cleverly twisted and differs from everything else Spidey-related. The storylines are very addicting as well, and will always leave you with more!



    Humor: Spidey's witty lines are very fun to listen to, and other characters have humor of their own, like Flash's bully antics.



    Animation: Really well drawn! Spidey and the villains' movements are done very well. The character designs are done very well, and they're original. (For example, Doc Ock has a original costume that differs greatly from his original green and orange



    Writing: The writing is clever, original and memorable. The plot is deep(as I said before), the character depth is as deep as a endless pit, and Spidey's witty lines are funny, clever, fun to listen to and well-timed.



    Acting: The acting is fantastic. Everyone does a great performance. Josh Keaton is the absolute perfect choice for Spidey! Even Christopher Daniel Barnes couldn't top him.



    Action: The supervillain fights are really thrilling and exciting, and they're the best parts in the show!



    Concept: Just how anything Spider-Man-related should be. It's about Peter Parker's complicated life with his Spidey alter ego, as he confronts villains and life difficulties. But it's more than that. If you want to find out, go ahead and watch this masterpiece.



    Music/Sound: Let me start with the theme. Makes you get earworms from it in a good way, and you might even dance to it. The sound effects are also really well done. The voices are well-volumed.



    I think that's actually all I can salute about.



    Characters: 10/10

    Plot: 10/10

    Humor: 10/10

    Drawing/Animation: 10/10

    Writing: 10/10

    Acting: 10/10

    Action: 10/10

    Concept: 10/10

    Music/Sound: 10/10

    Total: 10/10



    This show is perfect for Spidey fans! You must watch this! Too bad this got cancelled: We could have seen Hobgoblin, Scorpion, Carnage and more. Oh, well, at least we have the 90's show that has them. Also the Ultimate show isn't as good as this, but it's at least funny.

  • A Spectacular series!

    10
    Finally, a Spider-Man show the fans have been waiting for.

    This show seems to capture the true essence of Spider-Man. This series takes place during Peter's junior year in high school, about a couple of months after Peter Parker was bitten by the radioactive spider and became Spider-Man. All he's fought are just common crooks, thugs and thieves. But now Spider-Man has to take on his classic rogue gallery such as the Vulture, Lizard, Electro, Green Goblin, etc. The action sequences are amazing. I love the way that Spider-Man swings from web to web. Lets not forget about the fight scenes between his adversaries. The battle sequences are cool! Spider-Man actually gets to throw a punch and kick at his enemies! It's fun to watch Spider-Man fight and dodge his enemies.

    But The Spectacular Spider-Man isn't just Spider-Man's show. Peter Parker gets just the same amount of screen time as his heroic counterpart. This show cleverly intertwines Spider-Man's inner struggles with Peter Parker's own troubles in his social life. And the people in his life are just as great as the webslinger himself. Though Harry Osborne and Gwen Stacy met Peter in college in the comics, here they are his best friends in high school. Here, Harry is Peter's dorky best friend while Gwen is Peter's gal-pal who has an unrequited crush on him. Aunt May is a little more modern and less naive and J. Jonah Jameson is the same loudmouth editor-in-chief. If you are a Spider-Man fan, give this show a chance. You'll feel like you're watching a comic book playing in front of you. Plus, Greg Weisman, the creator of Gargoyles, was involved in this show. Anything by Greg is bound to be spectacular.
  • I can't wait for this show to come out!

    10
    Even though I haven't seen this show before, I still think it's going to be great because I'm a big Spider-Man fan. I hope this show is going to follow the comic book series. I heard rumors say that this show is not going to be a cartoon animated show, instead it's going to be in 2-D version.
  • A great show that does marvel's most known superheroe justice.

    9.8
    Spectacular Spider-man is a must see show. It has everything a good show needs. A believable character, mind blowing action, hilarious quotes, and surprises along every turn. This show, unlike the other Spider-man shows, actually shows Peter being a kid rather than being a superhero. This show shows Peter being more of a laid back scholar, who just wants to have fun while doing what he needs to do. While the other shows show Peter as a stressed out nerd who is cursed having these spiderpowers, having huge problems not even adults can solve, and abandoning his personal life to became a superhero. This show shows Peter being more in control of his life and becoming the kid he truly is. This show is like a mix of all the comics, movies, and shows about our wall-crawling hero put in one. You must see this how.

    It's a great to me for two reasons: I love Spider-Man, and two, it funny and entertaining. It hold on to the Ultimate Spider-Man orgins just without the violence and gore. The is the best thing on television. Just wish it was on comcast because kids wb isn't on comcast so I have to watch it on you tube. I rate as a great show for everyone. I also can't wait until some more classic and modern villians come because to tell the truth, I had never heard about Tobestone until the last episode. I also want to see how Peter and Eddie's friendship ends and Brock becomes Venom.

    a lot like the classic very good stories and awesome characters my favs have to be Black-Suit Spiderman and Black Cat which reminds me where can I find their episodes for download? Also the new version of the series also know as Spectacular Spider man is fantastic and a nostalgic trip of the good old cartoons that you can really only watch now in the three hundreds on digital TV. what ever happened to the good stuff why are people making such horrible new things why can they not use more of the good ideas like marvel heroes and things like that.
  • This show is amazing, spectacular, and pretty much every other word that come before Spider-man these days

    It's a rare circumstance for a show to run it's course entirely, without 1 episode that seems weak, and yet that's exactly what this show does, my only complaint, and it's so minor it barely deserves the 0.5 I took off, is the huge-pupiled character models used.
  • Best one yet

    This show is, in my opinion, the best incarnation of the character of Spider-Man that I have ever seen. Granted, the character design was a bit odd. But still. I think that this show did the best job thus far of portraying the struggles (emotionally and physically) of the hero and showing how Peter had a hard time trying to make his way in high school. There was a heavy focus on the character's ability to think. But unlike the 1995 version, this one also focuses heavily on the action aspect of the hero. The only problem with this show was that it wasn't renewed for a third season and the question of why has bugged me for a very long time.
