This show is a genuine letdown from Spectacular. Are children's attention spans nowadays almost non-existent? I could stand the way the show is talking down to me and probably most kids who are watching. I only saw 2nd episode due to recording mishap but it was plenty. The stories may turn out to be okay but the presentation is annoying.
I will say that it goes in a different direction than any other Spider-Man show. Whether that's a good thing or not is up to you. I wasn't all that keen on it, myself. When did Spidey ever run afoul of the Frightful Four...ever?
The supporting cast looks interesting, but...since when has Spidey ever needed a supporting cast of Marvel heroes? Like I said, it's an interesting direction, but I don't know if it's necessarily a good one.
They just keep upping the ante on these Couch Gags, don't they? I'm generally not crazy of using recycled plots (sounds too much like Bart raising bird eggs that turn out to be lizards), but Bart's antics with the pigeon were hilarious.
