Ok. I just watched the first four episodes on Netflix with my brother. It was rated TV-PG but I really think it was rated wrong. It should be TV-14. The character for Peter Parker is complex, given justice with his character model and voice actor, however in this show he actually cusses a few times and ironically lets Mary Jane kiss him. That is a bit OC to me. Especially since the actually PG-13 movies are cleaner than this show. However, the awesome techno music is enjoyable and the graphics are unique, akin to the much later Iron Man: Armored Adventures. Violence- people are shot, cut, electrocuted, etc. and blood is shown along with the traditional punching and kicking. The lizard gets his limbs cut off but there isn't blood shown and his limbs grow back. Doctor Connors had his arm amputated. Language- d%$m, a@#, h$#%, cr$p, s$ck, etc. Sexual content- Mary Jane is flirty as heck. There is some passionate kissing that lasts more than two seconds. Some of the characters' bodies are exaggerated, even the males. Females often have ridiculously small waists, round butts, and medium-sized breasts. Almost every girl you see is wearing a shirt that exposes their stomach and back but luckily shows no cleavage or legs so in a way the skimpiness is cleaner than some Y-7 shows. However, the bizarre body proportions can be frustrating for female viewers (such as myself) who are feminists. While it isn't as bad as Avengers Assemble, it can be distracting while you're trying to watch Spider-Man kick a bad guy's butt. Some villains and heroes wear skintight outfits that give them ... butt wedgies (including Spidey. -_-). Language that is possibly suggestive. :3 So, yeah. I don't think I'm going to let my eleven year-old brother watch it. I don't think it's really PG. If so, it's probably only PG on TV. Netflix needs to get censored versions of shows. Consumerism- it's based off of the huge Spider-Man merchandise including cartoons, movies, video games, comics, etc. Positive role models- eh. Characters cuss. MJ wears an outfit that shows her stomach and back. However, Peter Parker has wisdom and is smart, funny, and kind even when bad things happen to him. He does the right thing almost all the time no matter what.
Yeah. Good show. But Things that annoy me: * The ridiculous body proportions and outfits (hello breasts, butts, and anorexic waists. No joke: even Mary Jane Watson looks like a 1960s Barbie which depresses me because I love her character). * The fact that they rated it wrong on Netflix * Peter is a bit OOC to me (I prefer the clean, nervous Pete on the trilogy who's afraid of the opposite sex) So, yeah. It's good when it's not annoying. I'd say this is for ages 13+.
