Product Description

Product Description

The Incredible Hulk - Original

Amazon.ca

Universal's Incredible Hulk DVD will satisfy fans of the CBS television series by offering the two-hour 1978 pilot, as well as the feature-length second-season opener, "Married," and a commentary track by series creator Kenneth Johnson. In bringing the Hulk to TV, Johnson decided to focus on its human alter ego, scientist Bruce Banner (here renamed David), rather than its rampages. In the pilot, Banner (Bill Bixby) is haunted by the death of his wife and unleashes his untapped rage in the form of a monstrous creature (Lou Ferrigno) after experimenting with radiation. And in "Married," Banner falls for a researcher (Mariette Hartley in an Emmy-winning performance) who attempts to cure his "hulk-outs." Johnson's solid scripting and direction and fine performances from the leads made the series a critical and audience favorite during its network run, and the DVD--deceptive cover art aside (which features images from the 2003 Hulk theatrical feature)--should again please longtime fans and novice viewers alike. --Paul Gaita

In 1977,CBS introduced all of us to a great show based on the marvel comics superhero created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962.We meet Dr.David Banner,a research scientist and physician,trying to tap into mans source of strength,Banner is trying to cope with the death of his wife Laura,played by Lara Parker of Dark Shadows fame,through this unfortunate accident,Dr Banner and a fellow scientist,Elaina Marks,played beautifully by the lovely Susan Sullivan interview people when in times of emotional stress display unusual strength,but Dr.Banner discovering that Gamma Rays are responsible for making them strong and because he could not save his wife because of low gamma activity decides to experiment on himself absorbing a massive amount of gamma radiation he fails in the experiment on himself and feels no effects at first,but when he becomes angry or frustrated,he transforms into a hulking monster with super strength,7 feet tall,green and powerful.Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk was magnificent and I think the best one in the world who played the role and also a bodybuilding champion.The late Bill Bixby in the role of Dr.David Banner will be truly missed,he was a wonderful actor and played the role of Banner with compassion and inginuity.The episode Married is a truly great episode of the series.Banner is trying to seek help for his condition with a physchiatist and doctor named Caroline Fields played marvelously by Mariette Hartley,who unfortunatly has an illness of her own.the both of them marry and Dr.Fields life comes to an untimely end.This dvd is a must have for every fan of the series,and has a great introduction by Lou Ferrigno who plays the hulk,I will always be a fan of this marvelous show which ran on cbs from 1978-82.

Format: DVD
This DVD includes the original pilot movie "The Incredible Hulk" that started the series. On the other side of the DVD is the episode "Married", which was actually the first and second episode of the Second Season. The Incredible Hulk began on CBS on November 4, 1977. Bill Bixby plays Dr. Banner. It has been almost a year since his wife died in a car accident they both were in. He continually has dreams of not being able to save his wife's life. He just wasn't strong enough to roll the car over. That is Lara Parker (Dark Shadows) that plays Dr. Banner's wife. Now he studies how people are able to become so strong when normally they are not as strong. A black woman describes how she was able to save her son in a burning car by having the "extra strength" (perhaps adrenaline) to lift the car to save her son. Eventually, Dr. Banner decides to try an experiment on himself to change his DNA with Gamma Ray exposure. Well, nothing happens. But he felt stronger. He tries to lift a people mover. Nothing. It's raining outside. He becomes more frustrated, his thoughts anger him then the car blows a tire. More anger. The lightning intensifies. He hurts his hand using the jack. He's in pain. Suddenly his DNA changes. His body grows greater, his muscles grow rapidly. His clothes rip. His skin becomes green. He becomes the HUlk (played by Lou Ferrigno). When the Hulk's surge of power finally calms down or when he does an act of kindness, he becomes tired and turns back into his Dr. Banner self. This tv-series was so good at building monentum and emotion, especially at the end of each episode, that the tv-series kept getting better with each episode. Bill Bixby was perfect for the role as Dr. Banner.Read more ›

Format: DVD
I just viewed this DVD, especially for the Commentaries by director/producer Kenneth Johnson. First of all, let me say that the prints for both movies were in superb condition, with colors even more vivid than I remember them from their original broadcasts. The two-sided disk features the original 2-hour premiere episode and "Married," the most famous episode other than the pilot. "Married" is so well known because actress Mariette Hartley won a Best Actress Emmy for her performance in this episode. Such a prestigous Emmy for a science-fiction/fantasy/superhero show was unheard of at the time, especially for someone who was just a guest star in a single episode. I understand "Married" was released overseas as a feature film with the title "Bride of the Incredible Hulk," which actually was a better title and I wish they's used that for the television release.
Of the two shows, the original premiere pilot is the better of the two, with superb production values, fine acting and photography. And frankly, I thought Susan Sullivan, the female guest star in this one, gave a more convincing and touching performance than Hartley in "Married." However, I will admit that when I first saw "Married" 25 years ago I did cry at Hartley's demise. What mars "Married" is the occasionally cheesy special effects, especially at the end, which is supposed to take place during a hurricane. At one point Lou Ferrigno is "Hulking" a gate open during what's supposed to be a fierce storm; he's obviously being sprayed with water hoses while a shiny, clear blue sky is well evident in the background.
However, the real treat of this DVD is the lively and often humorous commentary by Kenneth Johnson (or as he puts it, "known as Kenny to my friends") the producer/director of both episodes.
