OK, Season Two is winding up, and this show has gotten amazing. The writers have somehow managed to condense 40+ years of Spidey (and some 200+ characters) into two seasons, and it works on every level. They got the smartass sense of humour, they revamped villains, put established characters of different eras in the same place and time, and they even nailed J. Jonah Jameson (although I can't wait to see how Marla Madison comes into this), and they've managed to make the whole thing interesting, different and yet still familiar & nostalgic at the same time. Flash Thompson has gone from bullying jerk to deep, deep character, the whole Gwen/MJ/Peter thing is still simmering, and we get a hint of...Aunt May in an interracial romance?? Actually, for the first comic series to ever feature a black character on a regular basis (Robby), I'm not surprised because the black/white/asian students in Peter's friends don't seem to recognize ethnicity as any kind of barrier to friendship and love, which is kind of ....neat.
This may sound un-believeable, but the writing's on a par with the first three seasons of Battlestar Galactica, it's that good.
Check it out!! You will not be sorry!!!
