| I cannot get enough of this series
This is legitimately my favorite TV show. I have yet to find anything so purely fun and entertaining as Toei's ridiculous, amazing, absurdly fantastic Japanese Spider-Man.

Strangely enough, this show actually served as Toei's first outing into the sentai Power Rangers "summon giant robot to battle giant kaiju" formula. If this show has one failing, it's that they hadn't yet figured out that having Spidey one-shot every villain isn't particularly thrilling.

Even so, the robot battles tend to be an afterthought to an otherwise wacky action show. You'll see Spidey gun down puddies with an SMG, or web-sling onto an actual helicopter, or drive a motorcycle to hunt down a bike gang, or any number of far-out shennanigans. The latest episode I watched had him literally die, go to Hell, re-kill a monster he'd sent there, and then fight his way to back to land of the living. He does stuff like that ALL THE TIME.

It is still possible to watch this on TV.com, for some reason. Everywhere else, even Marvel.com (which recently took down the episodes to free up server space), has decided it's not worth it.

Do yourself a favor and watch an episode of this show. You will not be disappointed.
