About this show

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-man either. But with great power comes great responsibility and Peter Parker wouldn't have it any other way.

It took me a few episodes to gel on this new look for Spidey and friends, but just watching him in motion was a pleasure. Voice acting is topnotch, and while for the most part some designs and storylines take a page from the Ultimate comics version of Spidey, Greg Wiseman and team weren't afraid to stake their own territory. It's very sad that we only received two seasons of the show, as they had placed numerous setups for storylines to come (and quite a few easter eggs!)

The absolute best Spider-man media out there and believe me, I've seen them all from the 60s live action to the NPH on MTV to Supaida-man.
