I'm just about to start watching The Amazing Spiez! from the very beginning season 1 episode 1. I'm just wondering has anyone else watched it and is it any good?

I barely watched any of it. It just seemed really kidified compared to TS. It does use TS continuity though, so you'll see characters from TS in different episodes. I think as far as Marathon shows go, Martin Mystery and Team Galaxy were maybe better received by TS fans.

I do not like. There are no action or humor that make the charm of TS. And the three heroes have no charisma, no personnality...
And the design is really horrible ...

The show itself has a very nice premise, yet it is not adequately explored by the authors. The characters are not as carismatic as the spies, like Soloik observed. In addition, I particularly think Jerry looks less cooler than he actualy is. Not to mention his sister Sherry, who is kinda lame...

If you are looking for something more interesting and well-done, just ditch Amazing Spiez and go watch Martin Mystery. XD

Never seen it, but it looks interesting. Also I agree with Kira, you should watch Martin Mystery if you haven't already. =3

I concur with soloik: the has less action, less humour and less interesting characters than Totally Spies!

The Amazing Spies! therefore lacks the magic that made Totally Spies! so fun. It's also oriented toward a younger audience, hence it's very different overall feel.

I didn't like it.

update guys I have ditched Amazing Spiez, I only got halfway though episode 1 anyway mostly because the sound kept disappearing off and on but then again I was watching it on YouTube but also didn't like it AT ALL so I've started to watch Martin Mystery, I'm about to start watching season 1 episode 8: Attack of the sandman.

I watched the crossover ep. with TS on the ranch. And the crossover where they save Brit.

As mentioned in other posts, the art style, characters & the rest aren't as appealing imo.

It was worth seeing the TS characters in those two eps, but I don't care to see the rest, despite Jer being in them (I think).

Currently up to ep.21 of MM. java.png

Update! I finished MM, Team Galaxy quite a while ago, and went back to this show.
Worked my way up to ep.#36 on YouTube (Season 2, ep.9), and found nothing after that ep. cry2.gif

A few random eps. in Dutch are on YT, and a random site had some Spanish eps., but it seems English episodes after S.2ep.9 don't exist, even on iOffer.com for sale. I'm curious why that is.

I know the show doesn't compare to TS, MM & TG, but was enjoying the WOOHP/Jerry lore and some of the art, etc.
For anyone curious (maybe no one tongue.gif ), Sherry (Jer's sis) is a villain, Boogie Gus, the Granny and Sebastian make appearances, as well as the TS girls once in a while.

This ep. features a villain pulling the WOOHP building through downtown. biggrin.gif

And the kids disguising themselves as the TS girls & Jer:

Update: I may be one of the few people persistent/loco enough to search out & watch every episode, including the 2nd half of Season 2, not in English anywhere online or DVD.

I watched all the Dutch episodes on YouTube, and one in another language with a chunk of the screen cut off. A few eps were in a language without Amazing Spiez in the title, making the search tougher. It was pretty funny not knowing what they were saying so emphatically, except for a few words in English that would pop up once in a while.

And episodes not on YT I found on DailyMotion. In Farsi. With no titles or ep. numbers (just dates). Sometimes up to four TV ID logos on the screen at a time. tongue.gif

But I've satisfied my curiosity on WOOHP & Jerry lore. And I'm a huge fan of Marathon'a art & animation. I sometimes wish I'd worked there, but am content with having worked in an indie place or two in the US.

The girls pop up in a few more episodes as well. One at a party thrown for the kids passing a test. Mission Accomplished. martini.gif
