      1978 Drama Fantasy List
      75% 8 Reviews Tomatometer 76% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score Dr. David Banner is a widowed scientist caught in the middle of an experiment gone bad. As a result, whenever Banner gets extremely upset or stressed out, he turns into a huge green monster called the Incredible Hulk, with awesome strength and rage to match. To keep from being discovered, Banner lives a nomadic life, traveling from town to town in search of a cure and helping people where he can, all the while trying to avoid suspicious reporter Jack McGee, who wants to expose Banner and the Hulk. "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry," Banner warns McGee in more than one episode. Read More Read Less Watch on Vudu Premiered Jul 10 Buy Now

      Saïd Sayrafiezadeh New York Magazine/Vulture It was the repetition of the show's scenario, with barely any variation, that made the viewing so compelling. Jul 2, 2018 Full Review Cynthia Rose Time Out You guessed it, another cinematic dose of radiation. Jun 29, 2018 Full Review Helen O'Hara Empire Magazine Full marks for being obviously green and extremely muscly. Jun 29, 2018 Full Review IGN Staff IGN Movies But producer Kenneth Johnson (who went on to make V) crafted a very good and dramatic series that certainly got across the core dilemma of the comics, showing Banner... desperately trying to cure himself of the accident that turned him into the Hulk. Jul 3, 2018 Full Review People Staff People Magazine The Six Million Dollar Man gets solid competition from this two-hour special based on the Marvel Comics character. Jul 2, 2018 Full Review Melissa Camacho Common Sense Media What makes The Incredible Hulk compelling is that the Hulk -- while strong, angry, and violent (he often smashes everything in his path) -- isn't a bad creature.
