      1981 Drama Fantasy List
      80% 5 Reviews Tomatometer 71% 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 12 Buy Now

      John Stanley San Francisco Chronicle It was this contrast of Jekyll and Hyde -- as Banner roved the country seeking a cure for the blood malady that caused his transformation -- that made the show popular worldwide. Rated: 3/4 Jul 3, 2018 Full Review Audrey Fox What Culture Lou Ferrigno...was not the first incarnation of the giant green superhero with lots of pent-up aggression, but he is arguably the most recognizable. Jul 12, 2018 Full Review Mathew Stevens CBR It was deeply emotional, intense, funny and action-packed. Jul 10, 2018 Full Review Ross Ruediger What saves The Incredible Hulk? Well, two things: The show plays nearly all of this with a straight face, and -- perhaps more importantly -- the talent of Bill Bixby. Rated: 3/5 Mar 3, 2018 Full Review Steve Weintraub Collider The mix of episodes produced contained the usual formula of Fugitive-inspired visits to downtrodden communities where Banner could make a difference for the better before being forced to leave. Rated: C Feb 27, 2018 Full Review

      Audience Member Great season i mean wow Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review steve d An unfortunate end that resolves nothing and keeps the same tired formula. Only Bixby makes it work. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The worst version of Hulk so far. Although some episodes are good, the spice effects are awful, the actors are fake and many scenes are completely unrealistic; Apart from the fact that this Hulk has nothing to do with the real Hulk. I would not recommend anything. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Post a review
