Well hot damn, this is pretty much the Spidey vs. Venom fight that we were all hoping for in the third movie. It bears repeating that if you are a fan of Spider-Man, the eventual DVD releases of this show should be a major priority for your entertainment budget.


Of particular interest is the advancement of Gwen and Pete's relationship, making me wonder if the show's producers are actually going to go THERE next season, and if they could even get away with it on a Saturday morning cartoon.

But on a brighter note, this episode had some awesome action, especially compared to the 1990s cartoon where they couldn't show anyone getting punched.

All in all I'd say this rivals Justice League Unlimited for best animated superhero show, it even approaches Batman: TAS in terms of quality. Definitely worth waking up early on Saturday morning for!

Hamtaro misses you too!

Just watched the whole first season today.

Incredible. Greg Weisman (Creator of Gargoyles!) is a genius. Gwen's been great, Harry's sudden transformation into stud was actually explained, and KONG!

By the middle of episode 11 or so I was totally rooting for Venom to kick Spidey's ass.

Not to mention Doc Ock's prodigious vocabulary, the most sympathetic Vulture portrayal in recent memory, J. Jonah just as funny as he was in the movies, and bit parts from Ned Leeds, Mysterio, Jean De Wolfe, pretty much everyone but Phil Urich.

I also really enjoyed the half-Spidey/half-Pete face popping up nearly every episode at random, just like they did in Stan and Steve's comics. Ditko even got co-creator credit in the opening... which has a sinfully catchy theme song.

A pitch perfect combination of 616, Ultimate, and aiming for a young audience.

Sam Raimi doesn't care anymore but Greg does!

I think the power of VFTW is rather overstated. Especially since about half the site is in full out mutiny over the Gokey pick. I think Adam is the most overrated contestant in the history of the show.
