Good episode that focuses exclusively on Jack McGee
31 October 2008 | by ODDBearSee all my reviews

Obsessed with finding out the Hulk's true identity, National Register reporter Jack McGee may even loose his job due to his relentless pursuit of every possible clue that delivers nothing in the end. Now he must convince his new editor that the pursuit is worth it or else...his ass is grass.

You gotta feel bad for Jack McGee. Although his motives are somewhat selfish, he's the only one who really really wants to discover the truth about the Hulk's human alter ego. On his endless quest for a cure, David Banner has revealed his true identity to a number of people but the one who's most interested is always in the dark. Granted, McGee's investigative intelligence is somewhat limited as most viewers agree he really should have figured this out by now.

Well, discussing this particular episode "Proof Positive" is an oddity in "The Incredible Hulk" as it's the only episode of the entire series not to feature Bill Bixby. Instead we get to follow Jack McGee and see just how much his pursuit of the Hulk has affected his life.

It's a solid episode which really gives the excellent Jack Colvin a chance to shine. He's a first rate actor and you really couldn't imagine the series being complete without him. Now, as most people know, the series had an open ending (that is; it was canceled) and McGee never found out the truth about David Banner being the Hulk.

"Proof Positive" is an interesting episode, not one of the best but a definite must-see for a fan 'cause this is the only episode that focuses exclusively on McGee.
