Decent "blaxploitation" Hulk adventure
14 September 2009 | by (detroit, MI) – See all my reviews

"Incredible Hulk" meets "Car Wash" meets standard 70's urban-action movie plot..

David is the "minority" in this plot, working at an inner-city car wash.. there's the stock "militant" who has a problem in general with "Whitey".. also a younger kid, who's a type-1 diabetic, looking after himself.. the main threat involves a drug lord who asserts himself into the lives of the locals..

there are too many subplots here.. the one about the young kids is fine, but there's also another guy who's on parole, and who nervously points a gun at the hulk in the climax-- but doesn't shoot-- this episode features the line "now that's what I call a colored man"-- referring to the Hulk, of course..

a drug lord's pet black panther is named "Huey"-- presumably a pun on the radical activist Huey P. Newton..

Ernie Hudson plays a heavy here-- he would go on to play the heroic Winston in the "Ghostbusters" movies, also the HBO series "Oz", and more..
