Trivia

This installment was actually filmed in the first season. It was placed on hold due to the subject matter at the time [ie child abuse]. You can easily tell its a first season by Lou Ferrigno's makeup and fright wig. His fright wig during the first season was green and black. It was also longer in the back. And Lou was more Neanderthal looking. See more »

Goofs

After the Hulk and Jack's tussle, in the gym at Mark's school, you can clearly see the green make-up on front part, of his jacket sleeve. See more »

Dr. David Bruce Banner: I'm a human being, and I've fallen down.

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.
