Just watched this series all the way through and actually quite enjoyed it, OK the villains are a bit naff, compared to those we have seen before and a few key characters are missing such as aunt May, not a massively important character to the show, Peter Parker, voiced by Neil Patrick Harris still has his usual one-liners and i thought the animation was actually quite good whether done by CG or not, who cares? something new was tried, i would have liked to see a second season, to see if they built on the first one!, i would recommend this to spidey fans to try to see what they think. after watching previous series myself and reading magazines for many years i personally would give this an eight out of ten!
