Season 1 & 3 were awesome! Season 2 not so much
8 March 2009 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Spawn was an animated series based on Todd McFarlane's comic book series.The first season of the show and the movie version both came out in 1997.The movie was PG-13 rated and while it was not the worst movie ever, it was nowhere near as good as the comics or this animated series.This series is great.It's dark, disturbing, violent, gory etc.Definitely not for the kids.The show is about a man who is left for dead by his old boss.He now comes back as a hellspawn and exacts his revenge while trying to see his ex-wife Wanda who has re-married to his friend.The show has Spawn living in an alley with other homeless people, as well as one who was once a hellspawn earlier.He basically saves them from all the gangs and the mafia who come and attack them as well, while trying to exact revenge on his old boss.Season 1 was the best season in my opinion, season 3 was great as well.Season 2 was good but a bit disappointing in comparison to the other ones.Overall a great series! The show was released on 3 DVD's originally where they combine all the episodes of a season to make a movie.Now they have a 4 disk tin case box set.Worth watching!
