It's my move David
9 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Impressive instalment, elevated in status by the appearance of veteran character actor Bradford Dillman, here playing an eccentric millionaire who invites David (Bixby) to his private island ostensibly to play chess and enjoy his hospitality. But Dillman has other plans for the hapless Bixby, who's temporarily sedated, left in a marked grave with food and instructions, before Dillman re-appears to hunt him down. Yes, it's "The Most Dangerous Game" visits the Hulk and it works well with the green twist.

Dillman is especially good here; his twisted dereliction for competitive man-hunting is initially well disguised by his somewhat charming and 'normal' exterior, but there's a psychopath lurking within. He taunts Bixby with elaborate traps and red herrings, typically provoking Bixby's alter-ego to emerge, although Ferrigno's appearance - which usually warrants fear - only serves to further satiate Dillman's lust for a big green-headed trophy.

Compelling viewing for Hulk fans, but I watched this with a non-believer and they too found it entertaining, independent of the Hulk aspect. In my opinion, certainly one of the best Incredible Hulk episodes.
