Did You Know?


The punk singer Lisa Swan is played by Mackenzie Phillips, who was the real life daughter of John Phillips, the leader of the group The Mamas and the Papas. See more »


When Lisa is drinking in her home, a shot of the bottle (Raleigh Rye) is shown. Just above the top of the label, you can clearly see "Jack Daniel's" (in positive relief) on the bottle. (BTW, There was an actual "Raleigh Rye" Whiskey around the beginning of the 20th Century.) See more »


Jackie Swan: Let's get something straight, right now. I am the one who decides what's best for Lisa. I always have, even when we were kids, because I know what Lisa wants. I know what she needs, I know how she thinks. I even know how many times she breathes in an hour because I created Lisa Swan and she wouldn't be where she is without me, none of these people would.

Solid season opener
14 October 2009 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

A somewhat sedated season opener, "Metamorphosis" is never the less an engaging Hulk episode that showcases what the series do so well; show the decent human side of David Banner and his monstrous Green Alter Ego.

As David rescues a female singer from a car crash he winds up working as her assistant. His presence upsets her manager and soon because of a drug induced incident the Hulk appears in a very surreal (and quite amusing) scene and once again David has to split town. But his services are needed once more as the singer wants to give her audience the ultimate experience, which unfortunately will kill her.

A good episode from the series, only fails in comparison to other season openers. Mostly well written, even has a couple of OK songs for us melodic and "punk" rockers and Mckensie Philips is very serviceable as the Kiss-inspired rock singer with an identity crisis. The episode even has a nod towards the violence in rock shows of the day...though Alice Cooper went a bit further in the 70's :) As always, Bixby is rock solid and Jack Colvin excels as the extremely unlucky National Register reporter.
