Ya I've seen it.  I like the 3d cell shaded look.  And it's got doogie howser.  Only 2 real problems: 1) the animation sometimes looks a little unatural and 2) no Vinnie.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

Chuck Norris is the reason Waldo is hiding.

I've also seen it.

I like it overall, it's very slick. I wouldn't say that this version isn't an improvement over previous Spider-man series, just updated.

Um, MTV made a 3d flat-celled-rendered animated Spider-man TV series. It usually plays on weekends in the evening.

ah, when I get cable again I may scope it. Though I'm not generally impressed with anything I've ever seen on MTV

Well, MTV used to have some good shows, but they all ended up being cancelled fairly quickly...

The State was one of the most entertaining sketch comedy shows out there in the mid/early 90's and it got canned fairly quickly.  A large portion of the cast is now doing Comedy Central's Reno 911 on which the verdict is still out (haven't seen it yet).

The Maxx was great when it was on!  Not the most faithful adaptation, but very entertaining and the animation was top notch.

Liquid TV started out strong but gradually declined as years went on.  Sure, we have it to blame for Beavis and Butt-head, but was also have it to thank for Aeon Flux.  

See, once in a while MTV actually comes up with a good idea and follows through.  I'll have to be on the lookout for Spidey.

see, I thought all of those were over rated. But then, maybe I'm just a TV snob.

In any case where it's possible for anyone to be a snob, I think it's fair to include you, Saint.

I watched a few episodes, and they were rather impressive.  The action scenes were very well-done.  There were a few too many bad one-liners, but overall it was better than I expected.

Ok, so I went through DirectTV's programming guide and found when its on. 2:30 and 3:00 AM on Sunday morning. Thats eastern time for me. And the one after the first is a rerun of the one before it... don't ask me, thats what it says.

And the episode this week is:

A television station is taken hostage by ex-KGB agents.

Will I be watching it, no. I have orientation for college the next day, so no staying up extremely late for me. But I will catch a showing on a later date.

After rigourous research I've found that they re-air lsat weeks episode on Friday nights at 10 and 10:30 eastern. But from my research I'm seeing that both sunday's and friday's episodes are the same. Maybe they won't be. Well thats all from the field of television programming from me for now.

MTV also did a Gen X live action show about 10 years ago...

Im so not crazy about bad CGI.
I wish someone would kill the creators of Reboot, for allowing crappy computer animation to become popular. Spiderman would be an easy live action show these days.

Definately not marvels finest.

Ok, so it isn't superb, but it isn't that bad. It reminds me a lot of the webcomic 'Sara & David.'

And Jeffe, Reboot was awesome. Tons times better than the current MTV Spider-Man.

I dunno what else to say, my minds fried. I've been doing manual labor ever since I got back from my vacation. So ya.
