    Hey guys!
    I just watched the first two episodes i thought instead of just saying god i love it or this sucks, it will be far more beneficial to all of us to list the pros and ons of the series so far so we can help make this show better.
    Ok i will start:

    Pros:
    - The spectacular Spidey animations while jumping swinging etc
    - the movie feel of spidey movements.
    - Catchy music and especially the theme song.
    - Feels a lot like the comic book.
    - the mix of ultimate spider-man and 616 spidey in one series.
    - The Lee/Ditko feel of the series.
    - the character development so far is great.
    - peter/spidey voice acting
    - Spidey fights
    -hammer head redesign.

    cons:
    - peter's nose and eyes are way too horrible so is all character's eyes pretty much.
    - Liz being a hispanic
    - Horrible horrible voice acting for harry and liz
    - Connors cybernetic arm defeats the whole purpose of sympathizing with his character.
    - Eddir brock's face and hair as well as feet are atrocious.
    - Aunt may looks like a girl in her late 20's with dyed hair.
    - Vulture's big nose (WTF)
    - Norman's asian eyes (wtf2)

    Mostly my problem is with some design ideas they went with i know they simplified the character's look for the sake of the animation but still they could have made more efort in not making them look like samurai jack.
    I liked the series dont get me wrong but if you really want to make this THE best spider-man animated series they really need to make some design changes, a series wont kick ass with only good writing and animation, the design is a huge part of any animated feature.

    Now what abt you guys what are the pros and cons of series in your opinion?

    Same here. So far, nothing's broken, so why worry about fixing it?

    You had all of those pros, but you could have easily simplified most of the cons to just one, and say the animation for the eyes and nose look awful...but, wait a minute, you put up animation as a pro...did you like it or not?

    The show was good, but I would still prefer better designs and proper proportions. Still can't get over the fact that Venom's arms are going to be almost as long as his entire body.

    I think The Batman had punching in it, so why wouldn't this show? It must have the same rules.

    *I would say that the character designs (with proper proportions) should be a bit more detailed in season TWO or THREE. But only if the show has strong ratings, so Sony can throw some extra cash at the animation as the character designs become more detailed--so it doesn't lose its fluid animation.

    *Punching, and this means face punching, I want to see Spider-Man's punches connect, be not afraid of violence. It's apart of the realm of superheroes.

    *Yeah, and I agree that Curt Connors should be seen without his mechanical arm. I don't want them trying to hide the fact that he has no arm, I want to see it visually. (I can wait to see THE LIZARD nest week!)

    *Let's see a much more sexy Gwen Stacy, let her hair down, being that she's on the show. Let's see her dangle her pretty thangs. I mean dress a lot more sexy.

    *Adapt story arcs from the comics every once and a while; The Master Planner, Kraven's Last Hunt, etc.

    Everything else I pretty much like indeed, damn good show. :cool:

    I think we should just be thankful that we have spidey throwing a punch at all because he's the only mainstream comicbook icon who usually gets the short straw when it comes to regulations as to what is and what isn't allowed. Saying that, after the good swipe that vulture gave spidey, I'm pretty sure we'll get spidey landing a few punches in the kisser.

    As for Gwen being more sexy, I see it happening but that's thecharm of character development, I want to see these characetrs grow but in the mean time, I'm content with their humble beginings.

    I also hope to God that we don't get too many non-superhumans breaking spidey's webbing.

    the very same could be said about the hulk, x-men and fantastic four cartoons back in the 90s which all had punching in it yet spidey back then didn't so....

    that point is pretty much mute

    Werent those toons on different networks?

    The whole thing with Spider-Man: TAS was it was being handled by Saban Entertainment, which also handled Power Rangers. PR got a LOT of bad press due to all the excessive fighting, and when Saban picked up Spider-Man, advertisers threatened to pull out of the show if the violence wasnt toned down. In fact, iirc, Canada threatened to not allow Spider-Man to be shown if the show didnt follow certain guidelines....

    There will be punching. The creators have said there will be punching. What's the debate?

    Yeah, they said they would have some punching when Spidey's really getting the crap beat out of him and has no other choice.

    This is different than the 1990's show though. Just because that show didn't have punching, it doesn't mean this one wouldn't. Besides, it's already been confirmed he will punch.

    I agree! See, didn't I say this was THE Spidey series. I think so far it is the best interpretation of the comic!

    Observations: Great to see wisecracking Spidey again! It's funny how the cool crowd from college (Harry & Gwen) have become the geeks of high school. Love little details like Pete's tag sticking out of the back of his shirt. Also love the endings with Spidey face in the sky. Very much like the old comics!

    No gripes yet!

    I hate that. In fact, it drives me crazy. Cut it off already, you little punk! :cmad:

    And before someone says anything, no, I'm not hating on the show. It's just annoying, like someone's habbit to chew on fingernails and spit them across the room.

    I don't know if they'll actually mention his motivation, but it's not like being able to regrow limbs is something Connors would only care about for himself. Regeneration of limbs would be one of the greatest medical achievements ever. The sympathy for the character is not that he's handicapped, but that he is a good man who was too hasty with experimenting on himself in pursuit of his goal, and unfortunately turned into a monster because of it.

    Peter's face... hate the nose and the dumb mole.

    Harry's voice needs to go through puberty already.
