Excellent! Just Hope Not Too Much Gets Changed From Here.
This is one of those rare shows that you absolutely want them to keep making, but don't "Jump The Shark" and screw it up by making it like Power Rangers, BeetleBugs, and other Sagon entertainment crap. This is something that could be an excellent series as long as they keep to the working formula.
Being that this is totally computer generated, it offers a lot of interesting effects of fantasy without disturbing the possible realism. The animation of the characters, themselves, we're excellent detailed, yet simple design. I just hope they don't get to the point where every detail and angle is accounted for as nobody really cares about non-plot or scene related detail. I won't mention the shows, but many can figure out the sceen where the director focuses on the shattered glass of a hero's entry to a room, rather than the hero himself. It doesn't take 5 minutes to understand glass was bouncing everywhere while the guy is fast at kicking bad guy butt.
Peter Parker is a young college student who, after being bitten by a radioactive spider, develops unique skills attributed to a spider. With his new found talents, Peter helps to rid his city of villainy.
This first season was excellent and I hope they come out with more of the same as a new season is expected to come. Great to have on DVD.
