Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

One of my favourite Spider-Man adaptations to date...
5 July 2013 | by Yugi-MutoSee all my reviews

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.
