Why comic books often don't work as live action.
Okay, I admit it. I'm a geek and I read comics. Something about many comics is that they work wonderful on paper and in cartoon form. But the logic of them working as live action is hit or miss. Marvel comics in general this is very, very true of. While the incredible hulk show TV show and X-men movie turned out great. How many other marvel super heros turns in live action failed? (HMMM, Cap. America, Punisher, Fantastic four, and THIS SHOW!)This show is so cheesy you'd swear it was made in Wisconsion. Nick Hammond was waaaaay to old to play Peter Parker. (he wasn't boyishly cute enough ethier, but that's just fan girl musings.) Where's Mary Jane, Flash Thompson and many episodes Aunt May? Where's the cool bad guys? Most importantly, where's the money for the show!! The stunts and special effects are lacking. Even when I was a little kid I could tell that. One episode they have a bomb made out of egg crates. Yeah, uh-huh, we need a superhero for that. Spider sense is just light's flashing in Nick Hammond's eyes. Now his spider sense makes him psychic. What!! The scripts were pathetic and often you couldn't have a episode with out a few plotholes. But it is entertaining as camp. My finance and I watch this show and laugh our butts off. It is funny if one wants a lesson on how not to do a superhero show. I just hope the new live action movie does a heck of a lot better.
