Keeping Up With Spidey

February 17th, 2009

I’ll be the first to admit that this season has been a little lacking so far compared to the first, thanks mostly to a somewhat lackluster rehash of the Fantastic 4 and Doc Ock’s somewhat inane plan to tap his brain into all the world’s modems, but this week’s episode shows that they’ve still got the chops, and a mediocre Spidey episode is still worlds beyond any of the other action anime shows I’ve been watching this season no-I-am-not-looking-at-you-Index-Abyss-or-Casshern. And that clip above doesn’t include the shorter fight in the same episode where Sandman went all Gilgamesh on us to quad-wield antique weaponry. Bringing Venom back halfway through the season, along with having Cletus Kasady hanging around the mental institute makes me hopeful for a Carnage season (maybe series) ender. Sure… it’s not the Gwen-as-Carnage that would be awesome, but it’d still be pretty cool. Brock being one really insane SOB just makes me smile all over.

    I have no doubt that Sandy will beat up Crocodile (OP) in no time.

  • shio says:

    I’ve never seen this but I like how Parker is actually keeping the snappy banter with his foe.

    Brilliant, but lazy? I dunno.

  • Kikaifan says:

    I’m too lazy for television. Do they webcast these by any chance?

  • Kraker2k says:

    Wooho yay for Awesome American(?) Animation. Its a shame very few cartoons these days have such wonderful animation like this, let alone things like Casshen or Index.

  • M says:

    It’s being canceled.

  • Aroduc says:

    No, it’s not. It hasn’t had a third season commissioned as of yet.
