Mr. Geller: It's just an unofficial warning. But if you write one more line about the Health Department slacking off, we'll have to take action. And I don't buy your freedom of the press routine.
Joe Arnold: Look, Geller, there's no need for us knocking heads over this thing. We're both after the same thing: the public's welfare.

the hulk and McGee
2 May 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

David has found a job in Chicago at Bruno's restaurant washing dishes. Soon Bruno's is in trouble when a sleazy journalist from The National Inquirer. The journalist takes pictures from the restaurant but before he does he's throwing trash and rotting flesh in the kitchen. But David is working when it happens again and his picture is taken. So he need those pictures to stay undercover. But not only that. McGee is almost losing his job because hunting down the hulk all over America costs a lot of money and nothing gets solved so McGee decide to buy a gun to shoot animals with. He will uses when he comes across the hulk which he does when David get stuck in the presses and is turning into the hulk. The hulk is shot but McGee too. Just when the hulk is turning into David McGee is fainting out. Will he recognise David Banner?

This episode was given on the box of season one as an extra and you can see that it was shot more professional. The hulk himself got black hair in stead of the green from season one. It's a very interesting episode because it was used twice in an episode an a film as a flashback.

Also we can see that Banner wasn't doing his own stunts, a double is seen in the fight scene with Banner and Charlie. A very strong series this is, it still stand the time of writing and so far I never have seen a really boring episode. Most of the power of the series lays in the hands of Bill Bixby.
