Fantastic episode, and not really dependent on the Hulk in any way.
2 December 2014 | by (San Rafael, CA) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this as a child and never forgetting it. I even incorporated aspects of this show into video games I wrote a decade later. I had been unfamiliar with the original story "The Most Dangerous Game", but loved the idea of trying to survive while being hunted like a game beast.

They could've taken the Hulk out of this episode entirely, and it could've worked even better, showing what a clever and resourceful character David Banner was. And help to explain why it is that he was never caught or found by the reporter and law enforcement pursuing him.

And that extra ending, the way it showed how smart both the hunter and Banner was, without having to 'explain' anything. Just as show us the final move of both. Absolutely brilliant.
