Bob get to the big news with Marvel's Netflix deal

Btw love this cartoon

It's passable. Although the concept of "goblin gas" is embarrassingly so 1960's.

BTW, I'm at a complete loss why animators for Marvel keep putting out inane cartoons aimed at the lowest common denominator on the IQ scale. Some will say it's aimed at the kiddos. Batman TAS taught us a very valuable lesson: Kids can grasp complex storylines too. Thus, its long run and success. I think too many people are caught up in the idea that kids thrive on crap like Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh and Power Rangers and therefore keep making programming that actually makes our kids stupider.

 I don't think it's aimed at the lowest common denominator, Calamity, I just think it's a different show than Batman: The Animated Series...which was AWESOME, not going to argue with you on that.  But really, Bats and Spidey are VERY different characters, so why should their respective cartoons be even similar?  One episode in season 1 which guest-starred Doctor Strange illustrated how you can remember the past without living in it, a very good lesson for kids to learn early...then there's just fun and funny episodes, like where Fury and Spidey have to retake the helicarrier, and it's absolutely FULL of James Bond and "Die Hard" references.  I just don't think the show is as bad as you have made up your mind that it is.

I don't hate this show. Rather, I'm addressing my comment toward Disney in general for making less compelling shows. It's nowhere near my favorite spidey portrayal. I even thought the 90's Spidey cartoon showed a much more likeable Peter Parker. My like for this show lay more in his "amazing friends". I love that bucket head and White Tiger have found their way onto the show, and all the guest stars over the episodes, but I gotta admit, there isn't a storyline that steps out at me and these are recent... But, Batman TAS, JL, JLI, Superman TAS, Batman Beyond, Young Justice!!! Wow! Who can forget the Clayface origin two parter (from 1991 mind you)? Or the Two-Face origin two-parter? The Batman Beyond where Joker is resurrected in Robin's mind/body? The JLI Luthor, Darkseid, Brainiac melding incorporating several episodes and one helluva finale? The episode of JL: For the Man who has Everything? My kids watched my DVD's of these shows over a three day period while I was at work like two summers ago. DEVOURED them. Marvel had a good thing going with the Ultimate Avengers, Iron Man, and Doctor Strange one-shots that came out several years ago, but they've blatantly gone safe and uninspiring since. I. am. not. impressed. Frankly, I'm disappointed because it screams at me and my children, "We don't trust you enough to give you a good story so we're gonna throw a lot of flash and inanity in hopes of at least keeping your attention until the next commercial break."

 Well, Marvel is always going to be different from DC...Marvel has found out it's okay to have a sense of humor, both on the big and the small screens, whereas DC is still making mostly seriously heavy shit.  They each do what they do well, I just think you're comparing apples and oranges here.

 *the apple that Gotham deserves...

 Amendment to my funny vs. serious statement about DC vs. Marvel - most of the more recent SUCCESSFUL DC movies have been a lot more serious than any of the Marvel movies, IMO.

I do watch but I hope this series ends soon to work on another Spidey series that is more serious.  I don't get why they don't put out direct to dvd movies with his popular storlines.  Ock takeover, clone saga, Mary Jane marriage, lots of good stuff to work with.  Maybe go retro and get a Gwen love story you know how it ends story.
