When a nasty bite by an irradiated spider endows teenager Peter Parker with miraculous, arachnid-like powers, his death defying heroism wins him admiration from those in need. But being a superhero has its drawbacks...especially when you're in college! As Peter gains the trust of his friends, the police call him a vigilante. But he meets the challenge by exercising his wonderful powers for the good of all. Multi-talented performer Neil Patrick Harris (Undercover Brother, Starship Troopers), television star Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills 90210), and singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb (Cake and Pie), lend their vocal talents to this thrilling, computer-animated version of the comic book classic and mega-hit feature film, Spider-Man.

However, from the first episode it was clear that this was a different attempt altogether. The relationship between the three main characters of Peter Parker, Mary-Jane Watson and Harry Osborn is clear from the start. Provided the viewer is familiar with the Spider-Man film, personalities and conflicts between the roles are obvious and easy to connect with, as is Peter's emotional difficulties with Mary Jane.
This familiar scenario made me to feel more comfortable with the new computer animated setting that the show is set in. Being a fan of traditional animation, I thought that using computers might be taking an easy way out, but this is not the case. It is clear in each episode why new technology was used in creating this series; purely because the camera shots attempt to achieve what cannot be drawn. Particular scenes where Spider-Man is chasing a vehicle out of control/criminals escaping use wonderful tracking shots to capture all of Parker's acrobatics as he swings effortlessly through wonderfully polished scenery.
This new form of animation comes into best effect during low light scenes. During the `Sword of Shikata' episode, there is a beautifully dark scene where Shikata breaks into a holding cell, but must promptly escape when Spider-Man appears in pursuit.Read more ›
Although it's not that one I think the new updated version will be more relevant to kids of today. They love CGI, don't they? The colours are vibrant, the action swift.
For a young child the Spidey films are a bit scary, yet they LOVE Spiderman, so this is a good introduction.
The animation is rendered in a 2D style using 3D technology giving the series a unique look that pays homage to its comic book roots.
The dynamic of the lead characters is probably closer to the film adaptation than the Lee/Ditko comic book cannon with leanings also toward Bendis' Ultimate series. Bendis is also heavily involved with the pilot episode.
The voice casting is pretty good on the whole with Niel Patrick Harris in the lead role supported by Lisa Loeb and Ian Ziering as MJ and Harry. Guest voices are drawn from all over including former spidey series and an impressive MTV influenced roll call.
The action is fast paced and more cinematic than I'd expect. Highlights for me where the Lizard episode and the pilot.
The extras are:
Audio commentary (for all 13 episodes).
Amazing Spider-facts (like pop up messages during the episodes if you so choose).
The making of the series
Building with layers - multi angle comparison
3 previsualised clips
The commentaries are an exhaustive and sometimes exhausting technical description of the series creation and realization. Stan Lee injects a welcome dose of relative anarchy to 3 of the commentaries otherwise the commentaries are a little too focused on animation technique considering the target audience of these discs.
On the whole a great and often spectacular addition to the long history of Spidey animation. And it's cool - so there!!
