I recently picked up the complete Blu-Ray series of the animated Spectacular Spider-Man. I had only watched the first season when the show had originally aired. I was glad that I made the purchase because it was a joy to watch the series in full. The character development of the villains as well as Peter's classmates was handled very well and the action scenes were fast paced and inventive. I have seen a handful of episodes of the new Spidey cartoon that replaced it, and in my opinion it is a pale comparison. It's too bad that Spectacular was moved out of the way to make room for it.
