The Boxer
18 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

First episode of the series after the two successful pilot films once again stars Bill Bixby as Dr. David Banner, Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk, and Jack Colvin as dogged newspaper reporter Jack McGee. Plot is about David befriending a struggling young boxer named Henry "Rocky" Welsh(played by Martin Kove) who helped him in a mugging attempt. "Rocky" suffers from high blood pressure and is being used by his unscrupulous manager to ferry drugs, and of course David(or rather the Hulk) must do all he can to help, along with Henry's girlfriend. Story is thin but entertaining and did successfully launch this beloved TV series to a five-year run.
