Product Description

Primetime Emmy Award Nominee Bill Bixby and the iconic Lou Ferrigno return as The Incredible Hulk in Season Three of the action-packed, unforgettable series! Rejoin heroic scientist David Banner (Bixby) as he continues his quest to find a cure that will stop his transformations into the enraged Hulk (Ferrigno). This 5-disc set includes all 23 exciting episodes and all-new bonus content featuring show creator Kenneth Johnson. Joining The Hulk on his mysterious journeys are impressive guest stars, including Fred Ward (Tremors) and Robert Davi (Profiler). Don't make him angry—take home Season Three today!

The Incredible Hulk's third season (1979-1980) continued to cultivate the intriguing mix of melancholy drama and room-wrecking action that initially attracted its audience, while exploring new ways to tell the story of David Banner (Bill Bixby) and his quest to tame the monster (Lou Ferrigno) inside him. Most of the episodes follow the Fugitive-like framework of the previous seasons, with Banner becoming entangled in dramas both big and small on his lonely journey; over the course of the third season, he rescues a glam rock singer (Mackenzie Phillips) in the season opener "Metamorphosis", gets blackmailed by mobsters in "Nine Hours," and winds up on a chain gang in "The Slam" (actor Charles Napier, who provided the growls for the Hulk in later seasons, is among the episode's guest stars). But the creators also stepped away from the formula for several episodes, including "Proof Positive," which gives a back story to dogged reporter Jack McGee and a terrific showcase for actor Jack Colvin; "Homecoming" also fleshes out Banner's history by introducing his family in a Thanksgiving setting, which is naturally disrupted by the arrival of the Hulk. The season is not without its false notes ("Behind the Wheel" has Banner turning into the Hulk while attempting to deliver a baby), but for the most part, it's one of the show's most solid seasons, anchored as always by Bixby's enormously empathetic performance. The five-DVD set includes all 23 episodes of The Incredible Hulk's third season, as well as an informative featurette, "Remembering The Incredible Hulk: An American Classic." The 18-minute extra includes interviews with series creator Kenneth Johnson and several of the show's writers and producers, who discuss the challenges of keeping the show fresh in its third season, as well as the personal tragedies incurred by Bixby during its production. A brief promotion for the Incredible Hulk theatrical release, which includes clips from the movie and a chat with star Edward Norton, rounds out the extras. --Paul Gaita

    The Third Season of The Incredible Hulk in many ways betters Seasons One and Two. The stories here are overall more exciting than in the Second Season and there are fewer lulls. You also get more insight into David Banner and (very pleasingly) Jack McGee. But there's one thing I did miss here; Two-parters. Season Two had the knockout episodes "Married" and
    "Mystery Man" which were stretched to feature length. Here the episode "Homecoming" could easily have been a two-parter. David finds his way back home and makes up with his sister and father, whom he had always blamed for the death of his mother. It's a great episode which only fault is that it's too short.

    Some great highlights here include "The Snare" and "The Psychic" which are two outstanding episodes. "The Snare" lifts it's plot from the short story "The Most Dangerous Game" which has been filmed several times. A recluse hunter on a remote island invites David to spend the night and before you know it David is fighting for his life for the hunter has become bored with hunting animals. "The Psychic" is very emotional with some incredibly sad overtones. Bixby's former wife Brenda Benet plays the psychic, who can see what David becomes and she also forsees Jack McGee's imminent death. Those who know something about Bixby's life will know that Benet committed suicide excactly one year after the death of their son Christopher. "The Psychic" aired shortly after Benet and Bixby had gone through a tough divorce. Both give exceptional performances here.

    Some episodes which are considered lulls I actually found very entertaining. "Blind Rage" was a thrilling episode where David becomes blind, "The Slam" was an entertaining episode where David gets arrested and sent to a work camp.

    The Incredible Hulk, Season 3: List Of Episodes with short reviews

    1. Metamorphosis: A reasonable social statement about the sensationalistic side of heavy metal rock n roll which unfairly portrays its management as vampires and vultures with no care for its effects upon the youth, while missing the whole point of such music to begin with; as a way for the youth to relieve pressure on weekends without turning to actual criminal activities. The episode unfairly stereotypes the rock n roll industry, insults the intelligence of the people within it, and blames them for the violent actions made by the ignorant youth that listen to it. I'm thoroughly sick of propagandists blaming substances and mediums for the abuse and misuse of ignorant consumers. When some people don't know how to appreciate freedom like civilized adults, then that means everyone should have their freedom taken away, right? * *

    2. Blind Rage: Very noteworthy case of careless toxic waste disposal by a military base which leads to blindness and death of innocent bystanders. Much more to worry about here than a few drunken kids brawling at a rock n roll concert. Banner sneaks a peak at the formula for the toxin and points the base doctor in the right direction for a cure, just before he goes blind himself and turns into the Hulk. The Hulk, of course, manages to save his eyesight, after battling a tank and a unit of soldiers on a booby-trapped obstacle course. * * *

    3. Brain Child: A teenage genius sneaks away from the government goons guarding her to go looking for her mother who abandoned her years earlier. She hooks up with Banner and the goons fake a story to the local law that she was kidnapped so that they'll work harder to locate her and get her back.

    Classic TV! :-)
    I am in my late 30's, so I was around 8 or so when the Incredible Hulk first came to television back in the late 70's/early 80's. I have some memories of a few of the episodes and watching them again after all this time is pretty cool. :-) Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno did a great job on the show. Too bad that the execs at CBS thought the show was too expensive - it could have gone on for a few more good years.
    If you remember the Hulk from when you were a kid or want to show your kids how good television used to be, grab a copy of the Hulk. You won't be disappointed.

    Thanks to the new release of the Incredible Hulk movie with Ed Norton, Universal has released the third and fourth seasons of this great series. I hope they consider completing the rest of the series releases on dvd so a whole new gerneration of viewers could see the remarkable performances of Bill Bixpy and Lou Ferigno. These shows are timeless !! This series is very highly recommended by myself and many others for sure !! ENJOY !!

    For the record , I am not saying this season sucks, because it didn't, but what I am saying is it doesn't hold up as seasons one two or four. My first critisism is that the season opener and finale were by far some of the dumbest episodes ever , I know that most everybody hates the episode Babalou or however it is spelled , but for now I cannot comment on this it has been a long time since I have seen that one. the other thing is since they really didn't have the hulk wearing his torn shirts anymore which is what I liked as a kid (which it looked like they tried to bring that back on what was the few of season five), they started doing the torn pants which was kinda better ,but it made seasons one and two look ironic,on why it took season three for them to come up with that . plus they seen they couldn't make up there minds on if they were going to do it on all episodes. however the show was not in vain as it did have some great episodes my favorite being "deathmask". I always liked seeing films where serial killers who prey on women get whats coming to them. I would have also wanted them to have made a sequel to "homecoming" on later episodes or seasons. And how his family coped with his problem.But this season as well as the whole series is worth purchasing they quality of the pictures are restored very well, but I wonder why Universal could restor all the hulk episode, but stopped on later season releases of "Emergency"?

    The incredible hulk seasons 3 and 4
    Perhaps it was only a limited number of sets had them, and Amazon didn't get them. Also are you sure the tickets were supposed to be in the boxes and not and a form to fill out to get the tickets by mail?
