Product Description

Witness the original web-slinger's mythology from the beginning! Peter Parker is a not so typical high school junior, fresh off an exciting summer engaging common criminals with his new found powers. But now he must conceal his secret identity as "Spider-Man", while engaging a new level of terror: the multi-leveled pressures of teenage life at home/school with combating bigger, badder super villains in the real world!

Amazon.com

Volume 5 of The Spectacular Spider-Man further confirms that this animated adaptation of the web-slinger's adventure is one of the best ever produced, thanks to its smart scripting, plentiful action, and respect for the source material. In all four episodes on this single-disc set, taken from Spider-Man's second season, he's pitted against villains both old and new while attempting to navigate the pitfalls of school, romance, and responsibility. The season 2 opener, "Blueprints," introduces the would-be magician Mysterio, who makes life difficult for Spidey just when he's trying to sort out a burgeoning romance with Gwen Stacey. Mysterio returns in "Reinforcement," which finds him part of the Sinister Six (here comprising Sandman, Rhino, Vulture, Electro, Mysterio, and Kraven the Hunter, who is the key foe in "Destructive Testing"). Meanwhile, the identity of the crime boss known as the Master Planner is revealed in volume 5's final episode, "Shear Strength"--and it's a neat twist on par with the true identity of the Big Man in season 1. The Master Planner's team (which includes Electro and the Tinkerer) is bent on world domination, adding some tension to Peter Parker's uncertainty about whether to be with Gwen or Liz Allen. It's an exciting, well-crafted quartet of episodes, each displaying the series' core strengths, not least of which is the solid vocal cast, led by Josh Keaton as Peter Parker and Spider-Man. Too bad there aren't any extras to make the disc extra-Spectacular. --Paul Gaita

This is the greatest incarnation of an animated Spider-Man by far! This show captures the essence and teenage angst and drama of one Peter Parker like none other. In my opinion, only the Ultimate Spider-Man comics surpass this interpretation of Spidey/Peter.

I agree that I would like to have the season 2 set, but I want to support this show. If we all buy the single disc sets, maybe Disney (Marvel's new owner) will order a long-awaited third season.

I don't personally get Disney XD, but I have seen these season 2 episodes on YouTube. I am looking forward to seeing them in anamorphic widescreen! (Now if only they'd release them on Blu-Ray!)

One of the best animated shows made. For anyone who is a fan of Spidey or animated action in general, check this out. The first season of the show was great. The second season, which starts with this volume, is even better. The one major drawback is there isn't going to be a third season, so after you watch vol.'s 5,6,7,8, that's it. And if you do check out all the volumes of season 2, you'll realize what a shame that truly is. Great storylines, memorable characters, intense action and appropriate for all ages. Can't really say enough about Spectacular Spiderman......

My grandson loves "anything" that is Spider-Man; and he loved this cartoon. He was so excited after he watched it and started telling me the entire story.

I'm not going to review the content of this series. Suffice it to say that it is a great rendition of Spiderman and well worth it for any fan to pick up. What I want to pass along is that at least now (with the most recent lower prices on each disc) it is worthwhile to actually buy these as separate volumes. If you want Season 2 (the last season) of Spectacular Spiderman you need to pick it up as four separate discs (Vol 5, 6, 7, and 8). Each disc is now priced at approximately $7 so a full season still costs more than it should have, but if you are a fan of the show I think you will think it is worth it. I did and I am looking forward to finally enjoying season 2 of "your friendly neighborhood Spiderman"!

Season Two: Part One (of 4)

This 2008–10 television series was a lot of fun. This single–disc DVD release contains the first four episodes from the beginning of season two. The enclosed insert offers the following product description;
----------
“With the holidays fast approaching, PTER PARKER finds himself distracted while focusing on the lighter side of life; girls, Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations. But Peter’s holiday plans are about to get blown away by a tsunami of chaos, destruction and crime. It’s going to take his SPECTACULAR SPIDER–MAN sense and Super–Hero powers to hold back the maniacal villains in these 4 exciting, action–packed adventures!”

EPISODES:
14. Blueprints – (Mysterio)
15. Destructive Testing – (Kraven the Hunter)
16. Reinforcement – (Sinister Six)
17. Shear Strength – (The Master Planner)

ALL episodes in this Spectacular Spider-Man animated series are absolutely The Best Spider-Man cartoons and stories since the 1966 Amazing Spider-Man IN COLOR cartoons!!

Season 1 was well... Spectacular! Season 2 was highly anticipated and DID NOT DISAPPOINT - equally Spectacular!!

The ONLY disappointment is that there is NO Season 3 or more!! What is it with Disney - the new owners of Marvel!? This entire series deserves more and more seasons!

The retelling of the early Spider-Man stories with totally modern twists was a stroke of genius! With all the material having been written in the Classic Comic Books how could Disney cancel this series!!??

Then again Disney did the same thing with their equally ground breaking reinterpretation of Iron Man with their Iron Man Armor Adventures - BUT that is another sad story for for an equally fantastic series!! What's worse they left us with a cliff hanger!! What really happened to Tony Stark Sr.!!??

DISNEY - wake up and bring both series back!!! There were non better!

I am still unbelievabl in love with spiderman and this show reminded me of that. Growing up, Peter Parker was someone I related to; and now Disney once again proves why they shame Walt's name.

Over the years, Disne has destroyed great shows including: Doug, American Dragon, Iron Man, and SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN.

I absolutle recommend this show if you value the comics or just love our freindly neighborhood Spidey. I'm purchasing them soon, but may I just say: Disney better not add insult to injury with this new Ultimate Spider-man show. It looks futureistic and shield with the Avangers will be in it. Drake Bell will pla Spder-man, after mocking the webhead with the movie Dragonfly!

Everthing so far about Disney's new show sounds pathetic, insultiing, or devoid of the original comics that created the wallcrawler we all love. Spectacular Spider-man made a comic based modern spin on the show...better than the comics now in my opinion. But as Ben Parker says in the death of Spder-man, "You did Good, my boy".
