Mandy: [checking out the King] You're a head taller than that phony. You've got more style. You're a natural. It doesn't seem right, does it? He's got his pick of anybody. He's got nice clothes, fancy cars. Of course, you'd have better tastes. But he's got ambition.
Carl Molino: I've got ambition! Where he's going to be in ten years, five years?

My Favorite Hulk Episode!
1 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Out of all of the episodes of this classic TV series this one shines as my number one favorite. Am a longtime fan of Lou Ferrigno and this storyline gave him the opportunity to stretch his acting chops and the first and only time that he got to play a regular human character. David Beller is working at a beach side café for Carl Molino and his wife and he's an aspiring local bodybuilder who is hoping to win the Mr. Galaxy competition for the grand prize. David becomes more than his employee and befriends Carl when he gets into a very sticky situation while training for the contest. Overall not a great episode though still worth watching to see Ferrigno playing both the Hulk and a regular guy. I would have liked to have seen a follow up to this one though the ending is quite satisfying. You won't be disappointed.
