Peter Parker has a laboratory accident that changes his life. He finds himself with greatly increased strength, the ability to stick to walls to climb them without needing hand and footholds and a "spider-sense" (presented in this series as clairvoyance) that allows him to sense danger. Designing a costume and a webshooter that allows him to fire a strong artificial web, he fights crimes as Spider-Man. Written by

In an interview with SFX Magazine in 2002, Nicholas Hammond said he was going to reprise the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a TV movie that would have paired Spider-Man with The Incredible Hulk. The telefilm would have been distributed by Universal Pictures and Columbia Pictures for a spring 1984 air date, with Hammond also serving as a co-writer alongside Ron Satlof and Stan Lee. Bill Bixby would reprise his role of Dr. David Bruce Banner, as well as serve as the telefilm's director, and Lou Ferrigno would reprise his role of The Incredible Hulk. Despite getting most of the crew members from both the "Spider-Man" and "Hulk" TV series involved and creating the new black costume from the comics for Hammond's Spider-Man to wear, Universal canceled the project before filming began due to budgetary reasons.

One of my favourite Spider-Man adaptations to date...
Honestly I can't get over how so many people disliked this show. I can understand why, but I still think they're being a bit unfair. Granted, the lack of actual comic book villains may be off-putting, and there are a great deal many differences between the comic book Spider-Man and this Spider-Man adaptation BUT the core of the character is still intact and and that is the most important thing. Also, you have to remember that this TV-Series was made in the 70's. You honestly can't expect to be wowed by special effects. And hey, I'm a 90's kid and yet I still love it.
Nicholas Hammond actually fits the role of Peter Parker rather perfectly, he even looks like him from the 90's animated series. Granted, he lacks Spidey's witty humour that we all love but I think in this show's case, that's a good thing. This show can be a lot of fun and has a very catchy theme song.
I hope that someday this show will get an official DVD release but until that day comes I'll just have to make do with my VHS copy.
