This is pure nostalgia for the lovers of The Duece or better know the
era around 42nd street. David finally arrives in New York and without
money he starts working at an arcade at Time Square. His boss pays off
'uncle Jason' but there's more going on. David's boss is fed up with
paying money to the mob and agrees with a friend not to pay the full
amount of money. Uncle Jason isn't happy about that and a kill list is
made. But David isn't happy with the fact and doesn't want that the two
elderly men are out to hit uncle Jason. Doing research learns David
that drugs are involved. Can he save his boss?
I really enjoyed this episode and not for the story but for two reasons. The shots taken from New York especially the era around Time Square and Park Avenue but also for seeing the hulk running at Time Square. Again Bill Bixby gives an excellent performance. Just see how his anger grows in a yellow cab.
The end credits do roll over a shot of David walking into 42nd street. For horror buffs or porn addicts this is a must see. A lot of cinema's and theatres were build in the late 30's but once television came in the street had to offer what television didn't. In the 1970s these theatres were put to new use as venues for exploitation films, either adult pornography and sleaze, or slasher horror and dubbed martial arts films from Hong Kong. But home video destroyed 42nd and around mid 90's 42nd was cleaned and became Disneyfied. For those ever walked on 42nd, as I did just before it's end, it's a must see but not only for that, just see the games at the arcade.

David Banner(Bill Bixby) works at an arcade in Times Square New York for a kindly old man named Norman Abrams(played by Jack Kruschen) , while his daughter Carol(played by Pamela Shoop) shows romantic interest in him. Meanwhile, Norman and another friend are being strong-armed by a local racketeer named Uncle Jason(played by Robert Alda) to pay their protection money, but are going broke, so decide to kill him instead, forcing David to extreme lengths to stop them, and bust Jason. Well filmed on real locations give this realism, and the plot is standard but still serviceable. The sight of the Hulk running through the streets of Times Square is now iconic.
