Nice story
19 October 2017 | by (Sandusky, Ohio) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Lou Ferrigno plays a bodybuilder who is entering a contest that is fixed. In many ways, this episode is taking a shot at Joe Weider and the Mr. Olympia contest. Especially since the King has won several times before, and Lou Ferrigno is told that the promoter, Solly Diamond is going to make sure that "The King" wins again.

If you have seen Pumping Iron, which starred Lou Ferrigno and Arnold Schwarzeneggar, you can see the parallels in this episode, especially when the promoter makes fun of Ferrigno's hearing disability.

It is great to see some of the bodybuilders of the 1970s also appearing in the contest. Ken Waller stands out, playing the role of the "King" of bodybuilding. Lou Ferrigno is basically playing a younger version of himself, struggling to pay bills, to keep a job, and to compete in bodybuilding. Overall, it is a fun episode.
