Trivia

The footage used for John Tobey and his team was that of the Chicago Bears and Dick Butkus, their legendary linebacker. Portrayed as an aggressive player, John Tobey was apparently modeled after Butkus. See more »

Goofs

As the Hulk jumps out of the window in the Coliseum, we can clearly see Stuntman Manny Perry is playing the Hulk, and not Lou Ferrigno. While there were a few stunts in this series that required a stunt specialist, it seems that the production crew used a stuntman a lot of the time for the Hulk, be it running, standing on a rock etc. See more »

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

David Banner(Bill Bixby) now works as a medic for a football team in L.A, in order to get close to a Dr. Stewart(played by Rudy Solari) who is doing research into hypnosis and rage therapy, his chief subject being the team quarterback John Tobey(played by Denny Miller) who has become extremely aggressive both on and off the field, threatening his career, as he is obsessed with cheaters denying him a victory, and the root of the problem goes back to his childhood. David risks his new job to get him the help he needs... Interesting look at sports with memorable scenes of the Hulk taking on football players on and off the field. Miller is also fine in difficult role.
