Quotes

Doctor: Now, what's happened to you is not uncommon. Concussions, especially severe ones, can sometimes cause temporary amnesia.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Did ah, did I have any identification?
Doctor: No, I'm afraid not, the car burned. There is a slightly scorched duffelbag in the property department. It's probably yours.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Was there no name on it, initials, something?
Doctor: No, you're officially listed as 'John Doe'.

Flashback Hulk
9 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Essentially a series of flashbacks framed as the recollections of David Banner (Bixby) as he attempts to recall past events after suffering amnesia in a car accident. With his face bandaged, he and the Hulk-hunting reporter Jack McGee (Colvin) share a plane ride to see a specialist, but when the plane crashes, both are forced to survive the elements as a raging forest fire closes in.

McGee - unaware of Banner's identity owing to the facial bandages and Banner's own amnesia - attempt to solve the identity crisis through recalling their encounters with the green behemoth, chronicling the series from Susan Sullivan's ill-fated encounter in the pilot episode, to the Hulk's daylight run down a busy New York street a few episodes earlier.

Overall, not a bad method in which to bring a series newcomer up-to-date with the present, pitting the usual foes as unwitting companions set against the backdrop of a treacherous blaze that threatens their lives. Forgive the grainy, stock forest fire footage and you've got a reasonable two-part action-mystery.
