Taking place after the Spider-Man movie this show revolves around the college adventures of Peter, Mary-Jane and Harry who have much better chemistry, character and dialogue than the movie ever offered. Each episode provides more drama and development and creativity. The stories are very imaginative and are obviously written by people who are passionate about Spiderman rather than a studio hashing a product together.
The computer animation is superb and resembles The Ultimate Spiderman comic book (my fave) more than anything. And I know Mary-Jane is only a CGI character but she is so beautiful, and she's voiced by the equally gorgeous Lisa Loeb. Neil Patrick Harris is the voice of Peter Parker and even in this performance he is a hundred times better than Tobey Maguire.
The show also offers some new, interesting characters like Indy, Cheyenne and Silver Sable and gives us alternate takes on Electro and Kraven. Though I was curious as to why Aunt May was not involved.
There is plenty of action and excitement to be had in every episode, all backed up to great music, MAN IS THAT THEME TUNE AWESOME! Where is the soundtrack CD?
The show could not have asked for a better DVD presentation. Not only do we get an absolutely stunning 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen presentation but a thumpingly good, totally engaging DTS 5.1 soundtrack too. Each episode is a 22-minute movie that is far superior to anything the live-action effort was. There are also an abundance of extras on this 2-disc set, some interesting, some not. But a seriously good package for a great show. You must buy! Fan or no fan of Spidey this DVD is too good to be without.
Whilst "MTV'S Spider-Man Chroncicles" boasts impressive animation and has the acclaimed writer Brian Michale Bendis serving with Stan Lee as executive producer, the series flals short of expectations.
Granted there are some people who find this series, filled with some dodgy character development, lame "Mary sue" villains, stupid origins for various classic villains, and really lousy performances from a few (Michael Clark Duncan phones it in as the Kingpin) appealing.
The DVD extras are the only reason to buy this, as the episodes only shine with good writing every two or three episodes after the last good one, with the extras, you can learn of the development of the series, a fascinating documentary, a hilarious blooper reel, and some stunning menus and Easter Eggs.
But if you want a good Spider-Man cartoon filled with excellent writing...buy the Beuna Vista Spider Man: The Animated Series DVDS
If you're a fan of comic book films and CG animation, then "Spider-Man" is a worthy DVD addition. This 2-Disc set contains all 13 episodes of the entire first season. The episodes are presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen format. The picture quality is bright with some minor enhancement flaws. Its 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS sound options are quite excellent with great clarity. This special edition DVD contains some great supplemental extras like in-depth audio commentaries with producer and co-creator Stan Lee and star Neil Patrick Harris, test footage, a fun outtake reel and behind-the-scenes featurettes. With its fine presentation, "Spider-Man" scores a "B-".

As someone who doesn't have cable tv, the first time I saw this show was on a screen at a Sony store. I bought the DVD based on the unusual look of the show and I was blown away. Read morePublished on Aug. 4 2004 by J. Nakatsuka
