^^ Well, it didn't have serialized plotting, of course, but the characterization and aesthetics were in line with the books.
No, they were both far cruder and not very accurate. For instance, there was only one episode in which a character named "Mary Jane" appeared, and she was portrayed as a ditzy go-go dancer and photography buff who happened to be Captain Stacy's niece (and neither of them looked like they did in the comics). Jameson was a regular character in at least the first season, and he was pretty faithfully portrayed, but most of the rest of the supporting cast was nowhere in sight.


Or so I recall. It was 45 years ago and I was seven years old.
The last time I watched it was only a few years ago. It's available on Marvel.com's video site, or it was then.
