One of the better Hulk-Ins throughout the series, going through four stages with Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk first stage, then stuntman Manny Perry second stage, stuntman Frank Orsatti for third stage, and finally Bill Bixby back to David. Filmed very well walking down the alley, using the darkness, lighting and shadows for a great effect. See more »


When David is saying goodbye to Mark, his mom, and the school nurse at the end, he takes one last shot at the basketball hoop. As he is doing this, a police officer can clearly be seen behind him down the street, likely guarding a barricade for the production crew. See more »

The Abused
19 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

David Banner is working as a grounds keeper at an elementary school when he befriends a young boy named Mark Hollinger(played by Dennis Dimster) who shows signs of physical abuse. David visits his home, where the mother(played by Sally Kirkland) also shows the same signs, as the father Jack(played by Sandy McPeak) is a raging, abusive man that David is determined to stop, even after the Hulk emerges and Jack turns his fury on him... Excellent episode is the series at its best, with a believable, intelligent script and superb performances. The climatic revelation of Jack's own past abuse was an unexpected but stunning twist that adds another touch of realism to a complicated case. A triumph for all concerned.
