Did You Know?


This is the first episode to use realistic spider-webbing rather than the heavy rope webbing used in most episodes. See more »


Much of the wall crawling here obviously contradicts the episode's other Spider-Man scenes and has to be stock footage from the pilot. Because this wall-crawling Spider-Man often clearly lacks the outside-the-glove web shooter that is characteristic of the post-pilot shows and that the Spider-Man of other scenes here has.

J. Jonah Jameson: Total loss, Parker! The car is a total loss!
Rita Conway: Well at least Peter wasn't hurt.
Peter Parker: Yeah, I'm fine.
J. Jonah Jameson: Well, you won't be for long. I should deduct the cost of that car from your paycheck.
Peter Parker: But Mr. Jameson, the newspaper has insurance. And besides, it wasn't my fault. Somebody else hit me, I told that to the police.
J. Jonah Jameson: This would never have happened if you had been riding a subway.

All About Dictators And Madeleine Stowe
26 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Escort to Danger" is the sixth and final episode of the first season of The Amazing Spiderman. The story revolves Maria Calderon,a kidnapped daughter of the newly elected leader of a Latin-American country that was featured in a Miss Galaxy Pageant.Apparently,she was abducted by the defeated dictator who intends to return to power and teams up with another politician in an effort to return to dictatorship once again.

It was great to see a young Madeleine Stowe in this episode in her portrayal as Maria.She was definitely a delight to watch on the show.Added to that,it was also great to see Spiderman not only deal with mad scientist,villains with telekinetic powers,terrorists and many other criminals but as well as politicians seeking to abuse power in another country.Maybe Spidey is the answer to stop all the dictators around the world.This was definitely a good way to make the viewers - especially young one - of what these leaders do and what bad effects they provide in their country.
