A television icon has his low-key farewell
26 November 2008 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

David enters a deserted town which seems to have been evacuated in a hurry. Eventually he encounters a female scientist who informs him that the town is experiencing a "minor problem" as a lethal bacteria has gone air born. It's a race against time (and some lousy looters) as David and the fellow scientist try and find an antidote before it's too late.

There you have it; the final episode of "The Incredible Hulk". After an impressive 80 plus episode run it was mercilessly canceled by a network executive. It's pretty sad that the show didn't have a proper ending as "A Minor Problem" doesn't offer any form of closure, it just ends with David walking alone in the end accompanied only by "the lonely man" piano theme.

"A Minor Problem" is at the very least a good episode, though. It's somewhat offbeat in that not a word is spoken for the first eight minutes or so as David enters the eerily deserted town. The Hulk action here is good and the episode overall pretty suspenseful.

Maybe it was somewhat fitting that David just walked alone in the end. Those in need of a closure can just imagine that David had a few uneventful years before working as the janitor in the government research lab in "Death of the Incredible Hulk". There the adventure of David Banner came to an end.
