    Shocker has always been one of my favorite villains in the Spidey world, and I LOVED the way he was in the 90's toon. Can't wait to see him done in this new toon. I'm still a bit iffy on him being a different guy and having a horrible Texan accent, but it should still be fun. Only an hour and a half to go!

    Pinch it!

    Haha. This show gets better and better.

    Loved Robbie's debut, mention of Mary Jane, more JJJ, and Spidey mocking Shocker's accent.

    loved it. It was another great episode and another reason for me to wake up early during the weekend.
    It was funny to see something I always wondered about, the Betty/Peter age difference, addressed.
    10:00 am next Saturday can't come soon enough. I love this show.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Harry and Gwen climb the social ladder and Pete is left as the odd man out.

    Great ep. Better than last week's and last week's wasn't bad. I like this version of Shocker. Even if it isn't Herman Shultz. In truth, I never saw Herman outside of costume so once I realized that, it didn't bother me Montana was in the suit. Like how his shock devices worked.

    Peter's interactions with his friends and classmates keep getting better and better. Gwen looking mad at Peter last week was nothing compared to this week. Girl looked PISSED when Peter hit her in the head with that ball.

    And Harry got more spotlight time. Norman, despite being a scumbag, gave
    Harry some good advice. I can't wait to see where Harry goes from here.

    And MJ got mentioned! Can't wait to see her show up.

    Also good where the Peter/Betty moments. I was hoping they'd go out but it was still nice that they'd paid some homage to the comics. Very good stuff.

    Another excellent episode. This ep also sets up Marko and O'Hearn as future super-villians without it being a coincidence.

    yet another awesome episode. I really love what they are doing in setting up for future storylines, and by having Osborn be the one who creates alot of these super villians.

    And now Harry hates Peter too. Bummer.
    My blog is full of humor. Almost regrettably full.

    I'm liking the slow build of tension. Each episode has done a good job of building on what came before. The first few episodes have been well-plotted and cohesive. That's not a shock considering Weisman is calling the shots. Gargoyles and even the second season of W.I.T.C.H. were structured excellently.

    Using "supervillains" as a distraction is such a simple but brilliant idea, I'm amazed no one has though of it. It gives the creative crew an excuse to trot out the "freak of the week," introduce most of Spidey's rogues gallery and still maintain the larger plot. It's a cool move. I just hope it doesn't stagnate the larger plotlines.

    And, finally, the high school stuff... pitch perfect. Spidey really is the most interesting when he's an adolescent dork.
    Marvel Animation Age... because daily doses of Spider-Man can make you spectacular, also.
