Season 2 Review: Neogenic Losers

This week we’re covering the entirety of season 2 of Spider-Man: The Animated Series!

The Neogenic Nightmare is finally done, so we’re discussing the season as a whole! We talk about our favourite (and least favourite) episodes, before jumping into the real discussion: who’s the biggest loser this season?

It’s hard to narrow it down, because this season is absolutely full to the brim with losers – but we’ve got our choices for winners and losers, even if Henry manages to find a way to make the entire process confusing as hell!

Spider-Man PS4 Discussion

Following on from a certain “spoiler-filled rant” from Henry in one of our regular feed episodes, we’re talking the PS4 Spider-Man game on our Patreon, which shows us just how cool it is to be the wallcrawler.

From the wide array of costumes, to the spoilers Henry was itching to bring to you without bleeps, we’re talking about the fun things about this game, the pros and cons, and what we can expect/hope for in the sequels to this game (one of which has already been confirmed).

silvermane ravages tablet of time

This week we’re covering season 2, episode 12 of Spider-Man: The Animated Series – ‘The Ravages of Time’.

Silvermane wants to live until the totally-not-barren cultural landscape of the 2000s with his time pyramid and time poncho at the ready – but before then he’ll have to go up against the ED-209 of this show, the Mega Slayer. Before long, we’ve got a cavalcade of kidnappings, Clark Kent acrobatics and a pitch for a new Ted Danson project.

Despite his sleep deprivation, Jack has some comic book origins to discuss too – with the wild ride of Silvermane’s tragic unbirth and Pro Evo cyborg body breaking Henry’s brain.
