Trivia

The Hulk was inspired by Frankenstein. In this episode, Hulk meets and old drunk hermit, an encounter reminiscent of the monster's encounter with an old blind man who shows him kindness. That scene was also included in the film The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and parodied in Young Frankenstein (1974). See more »

Goofs

When the Hulk throws the bear, it's clearly either a mannequin or a guy in a bear suit because the bear's anatomy is very human-like. See more »

Well written and entertaining followup to the pilot TV movie
26 September 2006 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

It's been a few weeks since David Banner escaped his former life and he's on the road hoping to find a cure for his illness which makes him change into the raging Hulk. On the way he encounters a would be heiress who's lost the use of her legs due to psychological trauma when her father died and she narrowly escaped. David also uncovers a devious plot involving the girl's stepmother.

The second TV movie leading up to the series. David transforms into the Hulk several times and has some memorable clashes, particularly the one with the grizzly bear. The film is well written by series creator Kenneth Johnson but it does feel a bit stretched. But no matter, it's still loads of fun for a fan. Bill Bixby is, as always, very appealing as Banner and equally good is Lou Ferrigno as the Green Giant.

As said, the film feels a bit stretched but it's always entertaining and probably gave a good promise for the series to come.
