Goofs

When David Banner first helps out Jack, he refuses any money or reward for his actions and only accepts Jack's hospitality begrudgingly. When Jack purchased the lottery ticket in David's name, David also insists that it was not necessary but begrudgingly accepts the ticket. After it turns out to be a winner, David gets angry (but not angry enough to turn into the Hulk) over the fact that Jack has not given him his share of the lottery winnings. He pressures him several times over this. This is totally out of character for David Banner not just from previous episodes but this one as well. The beginning of the show clearly showed that greed was not an issue for David Banner. See more »

Harry Henderson: I'll hold it in my hand, and pinch myself and make sure this isn't a dream.

Mediocre Hulk episode
14 October 2009 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

Although the Third Season of "The Incredible Hulk" is very consistent throughout there are a few very mediocre episodes that fail to raise much interest.

One such example is "The Lottery". Bixby is always solid and there's a very amusing performance here by Robert Hogan as a good hearted scam artist who cons David out of a lot of money when he happens to win the lottery.

A somewhat nice set up gets undone by silly scenarios and sub-par Hulk action. Although the word "silly" can be used in some instances in the better Hulk episodes, the show almost always plays it straight but here goes for huge improbabilities and campy humor that doesn't come off well.

Still, very watchable for a fan and Hogan really is terrific in his supporting role.
