Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man
New York: Student and news photographer Peter Parker (Nicholas Hammond)
is to be interviewed by attractive girl reporter Gale (JoAnne Cameron),
just because he appears to be best friends with Spider-Man (who is of
course secretly Peter himself). Then though three of Peter's fellow
students at the university steal the university's plutonium from the
storage just to demonstrate how unsafe it is to keep it there, and Spidey
for some reason is blamed ... so now Peter has his hands full to clear
Spidey's name, and he still has the girl reporter in tow. But once he has
proven that Spider-Man had nothing to do with stealing the plutonium, it
has already been stolen from the students by baddie Mr White (Robert Alda)
and his cronies, who want to blackmail the USA into paying one billion
Dollars, otherwise they blow something up - and something just happens to
be a congress center in LA where the president delivers a speech. So it's
off to California for Peter/Spidey, Gale and Peter's boss J. Jonah Jameson
(Robert F.Simon), where Spider-Man can track down and defuse the bomb only
after many chases and fistfights, and the occasional kidnapping of Gale,
while he also has his hands full keeping the girl reporter from guessing
his real identity. Of course everything ends happily though, even if Mr
White escapes to perhaps return in later episodes of the series - he did
not, and neither did girl reporter Gale.
Rather boring 2-part Spider-Man
adventure, actually, basically because the story takes ages to kick into
gear, many of the characters as well as the plutonium as such are rather
clumsily introduced into the story, and some are abandoned rather
prematurely, and the whole thing is poor on actual twists and turns. A few
of the fistfights in the second half are at least exciting, though it
eludes me why the baddies never use something more effective than bare
fists (and nunchakas in one scene) to try and take care of Spidey.
