They guy who played Peter Parker in this was also one of the Sound of Music kids. I remember this show. I was just comparing the action in my mind to the Night Crawler in the whitehouse seen from X-men 2 and realized how far we've come.

I remember a lot of kids in school were talking about how cool it was the Spiderman was finally a live-action show, unfortunately it was too costly for his web and wall crawling effects at the time, so Spidey's show left the air shortly. However, the Incredible Hulk live-action tv show came along and it was very successful as a drama program (even my mom was a fan), but today people want non-stop action. That was the mistake they made with the first Hulk movie, they made it into a drama because the tv show was a drama. But the second Hulk fllm was a fast-paced flick which I really enjoyed.

Anyway the web-slinger which was created back in 1962 is still going strong today.

Yeah, I remember the 1970s show. It was not very good, which is probably another reason for it's early demise. The Incredible Hulk, on the other hand, was pretty cool. Bill Bixby was an above average tv show actor. Kind of a sidebar here, does anyone remember the two Captain America movies that appeared in the late 70s? The guy who played Cap, Reb Brown, looked the part but wasn't a great actor. I don't know what I was expecting though, even at that age. It was a made for tv movie after all.

I disagree I thought the 70s spiderman was fairly well done.
