Three episodes from the recently cancelled "Spider-Man" series aired on MTV during the summer of 2003 are presented here by Columbia/Tri-Star Home Video.
All thirteen episodes have already been made availible on the recent special edition set that included a host of extras for fans of the show. This particular reviewer found the animated series to be something of a disappointment due to the forced attempts to "hip up" the character of Peter Parker and a number of absolutely terrible villains. The animation is also a mixed bag as well -- many of the computer generated sequences of Spider-Man web-swinging over New York City are terrific, while scenes with the character (and his college friends) out of costume are far less convincing.
This particular set contains the single best episode of the entire series:"Law of the Jungle" with Spider-Man going up against one of his best-known adversaries, The Lizard. Although the characterization of Doctor Connors (a.k.a. the Lizard) is a misfire, the episode still contains a few excellent rooftop fights, an entertaining "stalking" of Harry Osborn, and a particularly imaginative "strobe light" split second change from Peter Parker into Spider-Man within a police department interrogation room.
However, unless you're looking to save money and pick up this release strictly for the kids, the special edition DVD is the one to purchase.
