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 »

notorious for the grizzly scene
29 April 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

The second episode and again full feature length of 95 minutes. Now that Dr Banner knows he's in trouble with is body as seen in episode one he wanders around searching for a hospital to find out what went wrong and to solve his disease. He can't use his real name and hitchhike across the country. When going into a field to pick a fresh orange he sees a girl falling, picks her up and takes her to a nearby mansion.

The girl getting medication, being a doctor, David notice that the drug being given never can be the colour it has. Something's wrong so he has to save the girl.

David of course get in trouble and changes a few times into the Hulk. Notorious is the scene with the grizzly bear. A must see for all fans. It's a bit slower than episode one but still it's watchable for the time it was made. Excellent performance by Bill Bixby.
