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......

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"!

My almost 8 year old son loves this Spectacular Spiderman series and it is perfect for his age. There is some cartoon violence but it doesn't scare him or my almost 4 year old daughter. I recommend the whole series.

If you enjoy the earlier episodes of "The Spectacular Spider-Man", this volume won't disappoint. However, the entire show has been made available on blu-ray, so it's far-more economical to get the complete series that way. These volumes are skimpy and expensive for what they contain. Caveat emptor.

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 broke down and bought this volume edition with the understanding that a "complete" 2nd season dvd would never materialize. This like the series itself is a victim of the ambiguous licensing war between Sony & Marvel/Disney. That being said, IMO, this series was the single greatest (and truest) superhero animation adaptation ever made. Hats off to Victor Cook, Greg Weisman, and Sean Galloway. And yes, I do feel this is better than the excellent and much heralded Batman Animated Series. If you grew up on Spiderman comics and haven't seen these, give it a chance... you won't be sorry.

My 2yr old daughter loves Spiderman (maybe daddy influenced her a little) but now she loves watching it. But hates the commercials on the DVR episodes we have recorded. So we got her these DVDs to have no commercials and she can watch Spiderman all she wants. It isn't same Spiderman as new Disney XD channel series on now, but is still good. She recognizes Peter Parker and Spiderman no problem.
