When a nasty bite by an irradiated spider endows teenager Peter Parker with miraculous, arachnid-like powers, his death defying heroism wins him admiration from those in need. But being a superhero has its drawbacks...especially when you're in college!

This double disc set contains the entire first season of the new animated series complete with all 13 episodes.

 Fresh, exciting, realistic & with it's changes, quite bold!

Yes, it's very different (but not quite an alternative take on it). Harry's a blonde and MJ has short hair and like the Daredevil movie, Kingpin is black (one of the few Hollywood comic book changes that I think worked out great). However, I really did like all the changes introduced to each and every character and this is coming from a US comic book Spider-Man fan from the 1980/90's. The changes in this series are certainly no where near as insulting as the changes/treatment Venom was given in the recent Spider-Man 3 movie. In any case, following on loosely from the first Spider-Man movie, each episode was a treat to watch and the final two parter was 'kick ass', right down to its very depressing ending (so Spider-Man!). It's much more adult orientated (in terms of language, humour and sexual content) then the series from the 1990's and certainly (for that reason) more realistic (e.g. unlike the 1990's series, the Police are not equipped with laser guns! People bleed...they also die and on many occasions Spider-Man, after intense fight/explosion scenes has his classic costume torn/shredded look). My gripe with the series would be (aside from the final two parter) that each episode was a stand-alone (no season long story arc), lack of established super villains (though the new ones and altered ones were by no means poor) and the bizarre tendency for Parker to turn into Spider-Man in a blink of an eye but really these are very minor problems for me and I've only included them in order to make this look like a balanced critique. All in all, an excellent series and a very damn shame there are no plans for a second series.

 Entertaining.

The wierd animation style takes a bit of getting used to but within two episodes you'll be hooked by the humour, action and some great direction.
Character development plays an important element in it's appeal to an older audience - you really care. This is great to just watch when you have a quiet 20 mins and yet I find myself watching two episodes in a row.
Unfortunately, there isn't a series two available.
For the super low price you really can't go wrong with a package bursting at the seems.
Conclusion - BUY IT!

 Not Up To Scratch

I first bought this dvd due to the hype of Spider-Man 3 & due to the fact that I was a huge fan of the original animated series & wanted to check it out! However the dvd turned out to be a disappointment. The animation is probably the main thing that stands out as it is mostly comes across as a bad computer graphic. The storyline also doesn't seem to make up it's mind whether or not it is a follow on from Spider-Man 1 or if it is a stand alone piece. A major fault I found with the dvd was that only 2 main Spider-Man villians appear - a very weird looking Electro (with no recognisable features or characteristics) & a very lightweight villian in the Kingpin. In my opinion is not worth buying instead save your money for something like The Batman or X-Men Evolution which are both far from perfect but ARE far superior to this dvd.

 Well worth the money

Well first things first. Its not as good as the Spiderman: The Animated Series. But then again most of these new fangled rehashes aren't i.e The Batman, X-Men Evolution
This show has a few things going for it, but only if you can get over the animation. Its CGI but with less style. The first time I watched it, I struggled to put up with it but the stories and the voice acting drew me and now I have to say I quite like the animation.
The storylines are interesting enough to keep you hooked and there are appearances from Spiderman bad guys like The Kingpin, The Lizard, Electro and Silver Sable.
Its not as good as Spiderman: TAS but that doesn't stop it being good enjoyable fun to watch TV.
