    The shows geared for kids but pretty good if you give it a chance.

      I don't really see it as geared for kids. It's not as dark as the comic's gotten sometimes and maybe there's not as much of a body count, but otherwise I think this could be like any prime time drama. There's character development, on-going sub-plots, changing relationships, and the humor's very sharp and sophisticated in several areas. Some people may find one or two elements silly, but I say adults like to have fun too. :-)

    It's a great show! I'm into my thirties, and I love watching it with my 5-year-old son. The show reminds me of how important the character of Peter Parker/Spider-Man has been in my life, and I want to give my son the chance to get to know the character, too.

    i'm in middle school sixth grade (which i admit is not that old) but I LOVE this new spider-man series! I am constantly watching it on Disney XD. Me and BFFAE are the only girls in our grade who love to watch it though… But i don't care! I am looking forward to a team up between The Human torch and spider-Man they are my heroes of all time!
