    It’s an especially fun movie from a director and cast who are clearly having a good time allowing themselves to let loose.

    The acting is good, and the firecracker script has some excellent ideas.

    I watched this show as a kid. Even Fox Kids was not broad casted in my country i often got episodes from local video houses. I always wished to see the full animated series as a child but i never got to.Now after all those years i noticed the name of this show on wikipedia and i remembered that this is the same show i always wanted to watch as a child. I was jubilant to learn that all of the episodes are available on marvel.com so with great expectations i started watching the episodes with sweet memories of my childhood.First of all let me make it clear that the show focused on spiderman's private life so much as it did on his superhero adventures. So mary jane and peter's relationship is a recurring issue throughout the series. The first four seasons of the show were brilliant to say the least. I had so much high expectations from season 5 but ultimately i was shattered. First of all we get to see our beloved hero finally tie the knot with mary jane then all of a sudden we see that it was all a lie and that after all that happened she was just a clone and she just disintegrates right in front of spiderman's eyes. This was the most depressing footage i ever saw on screen and i was just shattered. I hate to admit it i even fell into tears. Even Batman who is the most darkest superhero of all doesn't have such a depressing story line whether it is live action or animation or even for that matter comics.After that i got hold of myself and i hoped that peter reunites with mary jane in the finale. But it was not all that i had expected. After i watched the final episode i felt betrayed and i just wanted to smash my computer screen. It was a terrible end. After all that inter dimensional saga we didn't even saw mary jane's face in the finale. It pained me so much. Then i surfed through the internet hoping to get some answers and with much to my dismay i found out that the proposed next season was cancelled just because of some stupid disagreement between the channel head and show's executive producer. This is just awful. I mean how could they do this to us. Do they think the audience are really that foolish? Very disappointing end indeed. I feel dismal now to have ever watched the show. Forget about me i watched the show in a matter of few days but what about the audience that watched the show for years and they were never a given a satisfying end. Do i have to now check the climax of every show before watching it to know whether the end is satisfying or not. It's completely understandable to cancel a program due to production troubles, drop in ratings etc but even for that one should provide something satisfying so that the audience who remained loyal to them regardless of their quantity are satisfied. As for this show even if some disagreements occurred they should have made a special episode tying up all the loose ends. What harm could it have done anyone to produce one more episode just to satisfy the fans. Still if that was difficult they should have ended the show with the episode the wedding where it could have been shown that he had sacrificed everything that he had for the good of the city and now it was time for him to happy. There must be some sort of limitation on every show that doesn't allow it to end abruptly. The channels have to take up that responsibility. The audience have had enough of shows that leave them hanging and disappointed.Overall i would rate the show 5 out of 10. I know many fans of the show will not agree. My sincere apology to them but my personal view is that the end was not appropriate and i think most people will agree about that. I can't rate the show more than 5 because of just a terrible climax. What the climax did to my feelings was exactly the same Bane tried to do to Gotham in the dark knight rises movie. First devastate them. That was done to me by the clone saga. Then give them false hope which was given to me by the fact that there are still episodes remaining and then completely destroy them which was done to me by the climax. Had the show been given a climax i would have rated this 10 out of 10 even thought i felt awful about the clone saga.

    I grew up watching this series and I loved it. I was always looking forward to watching this when I came home from school back in the 90's. Its perfect with great story lines, well-based off of the original comics. The only thing that was missing was Gwen Stacy but I was perfectly fine with that. The creators did a great job. I only wish someone could make a new Spiderman TV series, just as good as this one, with well drawn characters (not the stupid Japanese anime crap) that the children of our generation today could love Spiderman as much as I did.The villains in this series are amazing, my favorite is Carnage. If you actually compare this series to the original comics, it is actually so close to being exact. That's what people want! They want a classic Spiderman based off of the original comics. Not like the crap movies that have Toby McGuire in them. He is a terrible Peter Parker. This series is totally worth it. Check it out on Netflix.

    As a 17 year old female, I really love this series. Then again, I am very fond of Superheroes, and I consider Batman:The Animated Series as one of the best cartoon series ever made. This Spiderman series is simply brilliant, with great voice acting, good writing, above average animation and gripping and faithful story lines. And I also love the characters, Spiderman is always likable, but I loved the villains, Kingpin, Dr Octopus, Green Goblin and Venom were all great. Plus the theme tune is very memorable.Overall, I love Spiderman. It is a great series to watch, and it is great as an adaptation as well. 10/10 Bethany Cox

    This show was a lot of fun up until the last season, but even after it jumped the shark it still had a few great episodes. Practically all of Spider-Man's enemies made an appearance at some point. Looking back at this series now, I appreciate the well rounded portrayal of Peter Parker. He is a nerd and a boyscout, but he has a funny, sarcastic side as well. I felt the Spider-Man movies made Parker look like he was constantly depressed and really stressed out. The show might have focused too much on the Kingpin and not enough on the Green Goblin, Spider-Man's REAL Arch-Nemesis. I liked the voice actors. Christopher Daniel Barnes IS Peter Parker in my mind. Edward Asner was a great J. Jonah Jameson, and Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame was a good Hob Goblin. The show declined after they softened up the Death of Gwen Stacy story by replacing Stacy with Mary Jane and having her get sucked into some weird Dimension X portal. It really jumped the shark with the Hydro Man clone episode. But I still recommend this series. I hope the whole show is released on DVD.
