Bought this for my 5 yr old. This is the only spiderman I will let him watch. Does have violence - fighting and such - but no shooting. No one dies. Some scenes seem to me a little scary - but by far - the only spiderman suitable for his age. And now I have to get season 2 just to see what happens next!

Spider-Man, one of Marvel's earliest comics characters, has been the backbone of Marvel's animated efforts almost since the beginning. Though starting later than other 1960s animated series, the 60s Spider-Man is the only one of those shows that anyone really remembers (in great part because of the theme song). A number of others followed, most notably "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends" in the 1980s and the 1990s show (the one that I myself grew up with). Following the latter show's end in 1998, Spidey animation went into a bit of a rut, with the outright bizarre "Spider-Man Unlimited" and the MTV "Spider-Man" faiing to capture the magic. This is the first season (13 episodes) the latest very successful effort, overseen by Greg Weisman, the visionary creator of "Gargoyles", one of the classics of 1990s children's animation. Spoilers follow.

In a departure from previous media adaptations that immediately gives the series something distinctive to operate with, Weisman chooses to set the series during Spider-Man's high school years. The most notable previous versions were set during his young adulthood (in university, for example, in the 90s show). For the main cast of students, Weisman draws on both the cast of the actual high school era in the comics (1962-65) (Liz Allan, Flash Thompson) and various characters from the subsequent John Romita era in college (Gwen Stacy, Harry Osborn, Mary Jane Watson); the adult cast is a kaleidoscope from every era in comics. Minor characters abound, and, indeed, Weisman has boasted that every character is from the comics (though, in several cases, that just amounts to pasting a character name on top of an unrelated concept). All the regulars are present, though not all of them from the start.

My son and I really enjoy watching this series together. The continuity is solid, the characters are interesting, and they do a really good job of capturing the spirit of Spiderman. The animation style was a little odd at first, but after my brain had a chance to adjust it actually works well and is fluid. The action sequences are very dynamic and comic booky and fun, but this is really a character-driven storyline. Great stuff!

I must admit that I am still a kid at heart but I honestly believe that any adult would enjoy joy the Spectacular Spider-Man as much as any child. I do not mind viewing this program with my son because it is fun for all ages. I am a huge Spidey fan since I can remember and I will continue to be one for many years to come. You will not be disappointed and I cannot wait for season two!!!

The Spectacular Spider-Man: Season 1 is a breath of fresh air for parents who wish to monitor violance and swearing in the media their kids watch. My sister gave my son a dvd from a different series (Spiderman: The New Animated Series) for his birthday, and I have to admit, I was SHOCKED by how much vulgar language and phsyco violance was in them. To my son's despair, I had to throw it away. To make up for it, though, I bought this series (The Spectacular Spider-Man: Season 1) because of all the rave reviews about it. I crossed my fingers hoping for a cleaner version. What a RELIEF when I previewed them and found NOT A SINGLE SWEAR WORD IN THE WHOLE SEASON!!! And it didn't have any derranged content that I could see...just good clean comic book-type action. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU for a clean version of Spider-Man that any kid can enjoy! =)
