I noticed the same thing. I don't think it was intentional, something was seriously off.

The comedy is murdering this show because it's not funny and mostly just lame . . . and only memorable in its insipidness.
When the fighting gets underway the show looks absolutely fantastic and what they're trying to do with Doc Ock is intriguing but there is not enough time devoted to this. And Steven Weber over-dramatizing Norman Osborn is not helping either. Peter's "teammates" are a collective albatross, only Iron Fist is remotely likable, Nova and White Tiger are just plain jerks, and Luke Cage/Power Man is just there. Maybe I am spoiled by SSM but the characters here are definitely not more than two-dimensional and many are one-dimensional.
Some of the more out-there antics from the opening episodes are toned down a little more here, but they are still a disruption onto things, along with the constant breaking of the fourth wall. They are just poorly timed and break up the flow of the episodes.
I guess the show's improved marginally from episode one to four but this series is just not doing it for me. It's a waste of Peter Parker, a waste of the Spidey mythos, and a waste of creative talent.
