Dr. Louise Olson: We know from your EEG that your brain was abnormally active while you were in the coma. We ran a spinal tap the first day and it revealed an inordinate quantity of phenylephrine.

Visions of the Hulk
14 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

Season 4 of "The Incredible Hulk" is very uneven and "Deep Shock" is one of the more solid ones.

The Hulk appears only five minutes into the episode as David winds up fighting an electrical chord and suffers some deep shock. As he wakes up in a hospital a constant ringing bothers him and his dreams seem to be prophetic visions of the Hulk wrecking havoc in a major power plant. A weakened David gets looked after by an ailing worker in the power plant who's also fighting the management in the hopes of saving his fellow workers jobs.

A solid episode in the series. OK writing for the most part and the Hulk action is fairly good. It's decently acted and David's precog condition is quite a novelty. The formula is somewhat bent here but it's fairly predictable but overall quite enjoyable for a fan.
