5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best comics adaptations ever. 12 Jun 2009
By Paul McNamee TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I just got this set in the post this morning, and I have to say, I almost didn't believe it was really getting released until I held it in my hands, so convinced was I that Disney or someone else had a chokehold on the distribution rights. Once again, as with unedited classic WWF pay per view events, we UK-dwellers are treated to something or US counterparts are not. Which is only fair, because they usually get everything first anyway.

The set itself is well presented, although the artwork is a little cheap, and clearly done in a way as to mimic the style of the 90s series. Anyone who has the recent X-Men Season releases will be familiar with this. Unlike those, this one also has a slipcase. A booklet with episode synopses is also included.

I've recently come to realise this show is probably on a par with Batman, as both have their merits and drawbacks. While Batman has the better scores, acting and one-episode plots, Spider-Man has season-long arcs, which when viewed in succession make for great television. That's not to say the acting or music in Spider-Man is crap, by the way. Christopher Barnes is BRILLIANT as Spider-Man (especially in those fleeting moments of extreme rage), and the guests were memorable too, particularly Rob Paulsen's oafish Hydro Man and sexiest-voice-ever Jennifer Hale as Felicia Hardy/ Black Cat (that's Metal Gear's Naomi Hunter for you non-animation-buffs).

The music was great too, but while Spider-Man relied on several repeated (HEAVILY repeated) cues, each Batman episode had a fresh, full orchestral score by some of the best in the business. Another thing about Spider-Man is that even after all these years I find myself being surprised by some of the plot twists, which were even more abundant upon first viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 90's cartoons. 18 Feb 2011
By Mr. R. W. Graham VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Spiderman the animated series is easily up there with batman and the x men as the best animated series of the 90's. While the animation is a bit dated now, these are excellent episodes that spiderman fans of all ages should enjoy. Loved the venom episodes, which were far superior to the movie spiderman 3! An absolute joy to watch and an essential purchase for all fans of marvel cartoons.

i love this version, probably the best version of spider-man but however i only have one complaint. i am pretty sure that i am one of a little amount of people but amazon gurantees that there is a booklet with episode synopses but when my series 1 arrived in the post, i opened the case to find that i had no booklet inside, it is not very important but i like to get what i am told i will get but overall, a very good item!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spider-Man, Spider-Man 7 April 2010
Loved this show. The mid-90's gave birth to 3 of the best comic book adapted cartoon series ever. Batman: The Animated Series, X-Men, and Spider-Man. I live in the United States, and Spider-Man isn't released there, so I had to get a region free player, and it was well worth it.

The animation isn't as fluid as more modern or higher budgeted cartoon's, however, the writing and story's are great. I love how they made each season a continuing story arc, similiar to the X-Men. Season 1 deals mainly with introducing villians like the Lizard, Rhino, Scorpion and the introduction of the black suit and Eddie Brock.

I would recommend this to any Spider-Man fan; comics, cartoon, or just an overall general fan. I really have to commend Clearvision for these Marvel cartoon release's, and complete season's at that. Now I hope they can get the 90's Hulk series all on one complete season set (Personally, I don't really care for the volume sets).

Disc wise, the sound is great and the colors are generally bright (and dark during the night or sewer scene's, and there are plenty). The show was created in 4:3 and regular stereo, so don't expect hi-def capabilities, but is anormorphic for widescreens. Looking forward to the next seasons and the Silver Surfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiderman - Season1 (animated 1995) 12 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase
Have been waiting for the release of this season of animated Spiderman adventures for some time - very pleased to stumble across this a while back - brings all the memories of Saturday cartoon TV back from my younger years. The animation was better that the original 1970's series (in my opinion) and the stories had grown more in-depth. This is a must for all Spidey fans who have time to reminisce.
