Banner Goes Green Twice
15 January 2012 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

For viewers that want to see the Hulk rampage a bit, this isn't the episode for you. Bill Bixby turns into Lou Ferrigno just twice in 747. First he tangles with a pilot trying to dump him out of the plane in the snow-capped wilderness... which makes him angry, then he has to get angry in order to land the plane. The Hulk has little to do in this episode, with the exception of the show's final three minutes. 747 centers more on story than angering Dr. Banner.

A pilot and his sexy stewardess gal pal(Currie) plan to hijack a King Tut exhibit and hit it to South America. Unfortantely for them, Banner is on the flight and thwarts their plans. When Currie drugs the co-pilot and the Hulk knocks out the crooked pilot, there is no one left to fly the plane, which is suffering from a leak. A kid on board (Cruz) knows a thing or two about flying as Banner must land the craft with the kid and good girl stewardess Denise Galik looking over his shoulder. With the hydraulic leak, Banner doesn't have the strength to land the craft, so he shoos Cruz and Galik out of the cabin, goes green, and takes care of business.

Although this episode failed to employ the Hulk well, it was entertaining and kept you on the edge of your seat. The acting was quite well with Bixby shining as always and Currie doing an adequate job as the swayed-to-do-wrong stewardess. Cruz is okay as the bookish teen and the lovely Denise Galik is in fine form with her supporting role as the stewardess Banner can actually rely on. Although her stewardess skirt was quite hideous, Denise looked great in the mile high uniform.
