And just finished another recording. Greg Weisman, as usual, and the Voice Director of Spectacular Spider-Man: Jamie Thomason... one of the show's unsung heroes.

Greg, Zach, and Kristin are back, and we welcome Samuel back to the panel as we sit down to chat with Greg Weisman and the Voice Director of the series, Jamie Thomason. We discuss the development of the episode, and the character of Sandman. We also discuss Jamie’s career and just scratch the surface of what a Voice Director does, and why they are the unsung heroes of the animation industry. This one is a must-listen.

Thanks again! Another delight to listen to. I'm looking forward to Jamie's future projects, including YJ season three.

I'm saddened we never got to see Sandman's arc become realized in the series. Between this episode, and the vague hints Greg had regarding him on Ask Greg, I always thought they did a better job making Sandman sympathetic than the movie or the comics ever did, and you didn't even need a hokey plot about a daughter to accomplish so.

I watched the first season. The series was very ambitious, often fun and did a lot of big things rights but I thought it also had some big flaws and the episodes were pretty hit-or-miss.
I didn't like the Green Goblin or the writing of Dr. Octopus in his first full-blown episode (though he was good before and after), Black Cat (though interesting and well-voiced) didn't make much sense and Eddie Brock felt pretty overblown and underwhelming (I thought the early episodes didn't portray them as as close as the latter ones claimed they were and the friendship breakdown felt a bit unconvincing).
I also didn't get much why Liz more and more liked and felt close to/caring of Peter and didn't like that Sally pretty much had her classic looks and was very often so antagonistic (edit: though some of those instances were amusing).
Tombstone, Vulture, Sandman, Rhino and Shocker were very well done.
Keaton's voice acting was good, pretty similar to Barnes's (mostly just younger and more flippant) and I really liked the portrayal of his rivalry-relationship with Flash, but a bit too often the humor was at Spider-Man/Peter's or, though he had some good moments, Jameson's expense.

Yeah, I'd say some of the "Big Three's" best moments come after their introductory episodes, especially when things start to really pic up in Season 2. Once the villain is established, you start to look back on their original appearances and start to put things together.

To be honest, I was unimpressed with Gobby in his first appearance, then his second appearance was AMAZING to the point that it made me appreciate his original appearance. You start to pay a bit more attention to things that happened in their introduction and try to piece it into their future episodes. Things like Otto enjoying creating super villains more than he let on with his rambling about Rhino's suit. Or the fact he thought that Spider-Man caused his accident as revenge for creating those super villains when he became Ock. Heck even that the "accident" WAS indeed meant to kill him as a way of "tying up loose ends" from his employer who was doing illegal human testing. Heck even Season 2 sheds light that Sandman was actually supposed to be something more akin to Molten Man than what he ended up as.

Some more thoughts

The spider-sense was really well-done, used often but not excessively, used consistently.
It was just one episode but Peter twice forgetting to go back to/go to Harry to help him study was both cliched and unbelievable.
George Stacy was well-done but a little weird and disappointing that he didn't have more interaction or presence or apparent influence with Gwen or Peter.

I happened to come across the Season 2 threads while looking for something else. It's always nice to look back at our thoughts and feelings when the show was airing... ALL the mentions of torrents and all that...It was THAT good that some of us were trying to watch it at ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

It was neat to go back through those threads and read them.
