Trivia

In this as well as Prometheus Part II (#4.2), variations of the opening from The Six Million Dollar Man ("I've got a blow-out in Damper #3" - "Set your pitch to zero" - "Pitch is out; I can't hold altitude") are used in the dialog... obviously an in-joke by or for Kenneth Johnson, who served as a writer for both episodes and a writer/producer for The Six Million Dollar Man.

David is almost cured
2 May 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This is David's moment. With forged documents it's his change to enter a power plant as inspector Patterson. David only wants to enter the gamma ray room to give himself some radiation to cure himself but his disguise is uncovered by a suspicious scientist (Jackson). Not only that, there's an earthquake while he's at the power plant.

What makes it all look real is the use of stock footage of an earthquake. Back then it became one of the main issues over in Europe to discuss the use of nuclear power plants. Of course things go almost wrong with the power plant wasn't it for the fact that the hulk comes to save everybody.

This episode do work and David is almost cured. Due the stock footage it makes it more watchable.
