    From a closed perspective, maybe, but I disagree about it not making any sense. It's not the first time that the Symbiote is introduced respectively early. On another note, for writers wishing to use it, they aren't going to have compunctions about waiting around for an arbitrary time to do so.
    True, though usually we get at least a little more time with Spidey before we get into the whole Symbiote Saga so it feels like we've gotten a better feel for Spider-Man and his world before the Symbiote gets involved.

    Maybe it'll work for this show or maybe it won't. Time will tell...

    Bingo! Hit the nail on the head.

    Being friends and sometimes even acquaintances with Peter Parker is an exercise in suffering for the other party. It's easy to forget that due to Pete being the hero we generally are intended to sympathize with, but looking at it from the other side, unbiasedly, reactions of "Peter's a frustrating flake" are entirely valid, and technically, accurate. It's the trade-off of heroes who keep secret identities and who lie to those closest to them.
    I get that, but again it seems like Anya has had it out for him since day one.

    Honestly, Harry's reaction to Peter's flakiness feels more genuine and understandable compared to Anya. But Harry is actually Peter's friend so there's more meaning to it compared to Anya, who's been abrasive to him from the start.

    I'm confused at to why that's even gripe-worth in the first place, honestly.
    I guess because it just feels really unnecessary. Particularly for certain characters.

    Bold is very true.

    I notice a lot of people don't realize this. It's a kind of "reality is unrealistic" kind of deal. In fact, this is why in live-action series, a lot of times, 20 somethings, and even early 30 somethings, will often be cast to play teenagers, and generally get away with doing so successfully.
    I think that it's a very different deal for animation.

    I mean, we've got adults voicing teenagers, but they're pretty clearly teenagers on the show and the designs are meant to convey that rather then the actors' "youth" or lack thereof playing a part in the casting since it ultimately falls to their voice to convey that part.

    Obviously with Scott Menville in the role they are going for a much younger take on Otto Octavius for this universe.

    Anya is just a classmate with a bad attitude and is only mad at Peter because he used her invention to put out a fire. I suspect that the moisture equation Peter solved stumped Anya and it does not sit well with her.

    Halloween Moon would fit better three weeks later, surely?

    I liked seeing Jackel on the show. I kinda felt that that seeing the revealing of the Jackal's identity to Spidey, Gwen, and the others was way to quick. I thought maybe like The Flash tv show, like having Wells being revealed as Thawne/Reverse Flash to the audience, but the characters on the show slowly. I think it could have been a good arc.
    Pull List: Superman, Action Comics, Batman,Titans, Flash, Nightwing, Green Arrow, Youngblood, Black Hammer

    Wife's pull list: Wonder Woman

    I definitely feel like they could have drawn out the Jackal arc longer, especially since his fight with Spidey felt so anti-climactic to me and there's still a lot we don't know about Warren and his relationship with Gwen.

    But I think Norman is going to be the Thawne/Reverse-Flash of this season.

    Seriously though, "Daddy Sandman" looks so weird.

    Yeah, in the comics, Sandman has heel face turned a couple of times - he's even an ex-Avenger. He's definitely not the most evil villain in Spidey's rogues gallery!

    I saw the sandman ep and Anya, Gwen, and Miles seem even more obsessed with science than Peter to the point of Peter looking like a normal teen compared to those three. I guess while Peter has had to deal with real world problems, Anya, Miles, and Gwen seems more sheltered in the lives of kid geniuses. Take Coney Island for instance. While Peter was having fun those three acted like it was a foreign concept to them. Unlike Peter, they never had an Uncle Ben to keep them grounded in real life.

    What does everyone think about the "Stark Expo" episode?

    So...yeah. Just finished the Symbiote episode. It was the worst portrayal of the Symbiote Saga yet. Yes, that is including Spider-Man 3.

    At least I have Spectacular on DVD.
