    I see this is now shipping from PlayUSA - am very tempted as I have fond memories of this series as a kid. Anyone picked this up yet? It's not cheap (although 52 episodes, 19 hours of footage!!) I just wonder if it will be as good as I remember......

    I have had this set for over 3 weeks,and its great.Every episode,lovingly restored.It certainly brings back those Saturday morning memories.Quality of the remastering is superb.I got it from Enterprises as I always avoid box sets from PLAYUSA,as twice I had dvd's for just £23.99 from them,then got stung with £10 import charges.Enterprises definitely the best with box sets

    This set contains the oldest material on Spiderman that there is.Or are you referring to the mid 70's series with Nicholas Hammond,where episodes were put together and released as movies in UK cinemas

    I assumed the live action films are what cruncher meant. They repeated them about 5 years ago - awful but very amusing!!

    I started a thread in DVDTalk (I think) about this DVD set. Probably my favorite TV series of all time. Image quality on the episodes is perfect, but there's no extras to speak of.

    Still, definitely worth buying if you're a fan of the original.

    There was a live action series in the late 70's with a handful of episodes edited together and released as movies to UK cinemas.These have been released on vhs.With all the hype around Spiderman 2 you would have thought the owners to the series would cash in with a quickie dvd release that would easily fit in a 3 or 4 disc set.But maybe Marvel can still control its release
