Editorial Reviews

It's been a tough week for Peter Parker. His two best friends are mad at him, Aunt May is behind on the bills and Flash Thompson is still bullying him at school. It hasn't been a cakewalk for Spider-manTM either. The Enforcers are trying to destroy him, the Vulture is seeking revenge on Mr. Osborn, Electro is wreaking havoc on the city and his mentor, Dr. Connors, just transformed into The Lizard - a reptile on a rampage. But with great power comes great responsibility and Peter Parker wouldn't have it any other way. Release comprised of 3 episodes from the hit TV series!

Five stars for the animated series; one star for the dvd (averages to three stars).

You just can't keep an old webhead down. On March 8, 2008, SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN debuted on the Kid's WB, this being the wallcrawler's sixth animated TV show. And while there are some new twists, this new series remains true to the core of the Spidey mythos. This incarnation returns Peter Parker to basics and to nerdy teenhood. Pete is back in high school, and all the angst and acne that goes with that. Classic themes resurface as Peter strives to juggle crimefighting with school and with domestic life with his Aunt May. The Parker household suffers from financial woes. Peter is highly intelligent but unpopular at school. As Spidey, he applies science and logic (and jokes) to best his opponents. And, as ever, Peter clings to that hard-earned life lesson: "With great power comes great responsibility." Which means, Spidey is righteous, but broke.

What's new? Well, Gwen Stacy (who in the comics is Pete's other great love) becomes a regular for the first time in a Spidey animated series, and she's been revamped into a brainy, glasses-sporting girl. She's still cute, though, and she's one of Peter's best friends (along with the boring Harry Osbourne). Fans of Venom will recognize Eddie Brock's name, but, here, he's now a college freshman, instead of a disgraced newspaper journalist. And he's chums with Peter and Gwen. Meanwhile, Flash Thompson is still a first-class bully and jock. And if you're wondering about a certain redhead, well, she shows up later in the season.

In Spidey's personal timeline, it's only been less than a year since he'd gone public. He's still mostly thought of as an urban legend, but, geez, how badly does Daily Bugle publisher, J. Jonah Jameson, want a photo of him?

I'm tired of studios releasing a few episodes on a disc and giving it a fancy name, then later on releasing the entire season on DVD to force the kids to buy something twice if they want all the episodes.

Support FULL-SEASON releases ONLY and they will stop these shady practices of double dipping the consumer (namely kids in most cases). Usually the full season release is much cheaper than buying seperate "volumes" anyways.

My boys, ages 2 and 4, love Spiderman. They've never seen any Spiderman movies or TV programs, so I don't really know how they became such huge fans... This DVD was on sale at Toys R Us for $5, so I thought, "What the heck?" and I'm very glad we purchased it. The boys think it is the "coolest" show (as much as they love Elmo, I guess he just isn't as "cool"). I like that although this program was not really geared for such a young audience, there is nothing inappropriate in the language or content and it is kept simple enough for kids to easily follow the storyline. I'm excited for the entire season to be released. I think my little Spider-men will love it. FYI, notice this is the "Spectacular Spiderman", not the original "Amazing Spiderman." Most the characters are the same (in this episode), but the context of the story is pretty different.

He loves all Spider-Man movies. This was the first one I purchased for him and he hasn't stopped talking about it. He now refers to this movie as "Spider-Man's big fight with the Green Lizard." He loves it.

My sons (ages 6 and 4) love this new animated series, The Spectacular Spider-Man. The show is much better suited for younger audiences than Spider-Man's last animated series, which lasted only one season on MTV in 2003.

This series features all of Spider-Man's most famous villians, including the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, Vulture, Rhino and Electro.

If you absolutely must buy a DVD right now (birthday present, etc.) this is a good choice for Spider-Man fans. Amazon has the DVD priced $5 below suggested retail price ($19.95) and this is a good choice for young children who love Spider-Man.

The more economical decision is to wait for a DVD set release of all 26 episodes from Seasons 1 and 2, which should be priced around $30. It was announced earlier this year that Season 2 would move from the CW network to Disney XD. Season 2 is scheduled to begin in March 2009. However, the Spectacular Spider-Man ended production after completing the 26th episode (the end of Season 2). A third season might happen, depending on the ratings Season 2 gets on Disney XD.

There are other Spectacular Spider-Man gift options to consider if you hold off on the DVD purchase. Amazon has a great set of action figures modeled that were modeled from the animated series. I recommend the action figures listed below but check out my Amazon lists for other superhero toys and books.

One final note on these action figures: we paid about $5 each but many collectors have driven up prices to more than $20 each. Compare Amazon sellers and be selective. You can still find affordable action figures on Amazon but you need to do some research.

Like others have said, this just is not worth buying. They should release the whole season for $20, not some episodes for $15. thats just dumb.
