Product Description

"…Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." Mild-mannered research scientist David Banner (Emmy nominee Bill Bixby) finds he must offer this heroic warning after exposure to gamma radiation transforms him into the terrifying and enraged Hulk (Lou Ferrigno). Bursting from comic book pages into this 4-disc DVD set, the Complete First Season of The Incredible Hulk boasts all ten heart-pounding episodes, the two original feature-length films, a preview episode from Season Two, and in-depth commentary from producer Kenneth Johnson. Intense. Immense. Incredible!


One of the best television adaptations of a comic book, The Incredible Hulk (1978-82) lent gravity and pathos to the fantastic premise--an experiment gone wrong causes a scientist to transform into a giant creature whenever he becomes angry--established in the popular Marvel Comics series. The network version stripped away the Hulk's outlandish foes (as well as his rudimentary speech) and instead focused on the loneliness of his human alter ego, David Banner (well played by the late Bill Bixby), as he traveled across the United States in search of a cure for his affliction as well as an escape from a prying reporter (the late Jack Colvin, also terrific). But despite its Fugitive-like premise, the TV Hulk never lost its comic book audience thanks to the plausibly ferocious performance by actor/bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno (whose growls were dubbed by actors Ted Cassidy and Charles Napier) as the Hulk, who handled the action portions of the show with plausibly superhuman brawn. The Complete First Season set contains both of the pilots that kicked off the series ("Pilot" was previously released on a separate single disc) as well as all 10 episodes from the first season; among the adventures encountered by David and the Hulk are a gambling scandal in Vegas ("The Hulk Breaks Las Vegas"), a meltdown at a nuclear facility ("Earthquakes Happen"), and a runaway plane ("747," which reunites Bixby with his Courtship of Eddie's Father co-star Brandon Cruz).

Extras on the set have been the subject of much Internet debate--the commentary by series writer/producer/director Kenneth Johnson on "Pilot" is the same as on the previous DVD release of this episode (as well as the introduction by Ferrigno), and a proposed gag reel mentioned in promotional material has been moved to a future DVD release. The sole fresh bonus material is "Stop the Presses," an episode taken from the series' second season. --Paul Gaita

    After being accidently exposed in his laboratory to a massive dosage of gamma radiation, David Banner (A Research Scientist) physiology was dramaticaly effected.

    Normally peaceful, quiet man, David now found that once angered, he turn into the Incredible Hulk, a huge, powerful seven foot greenish, manlike monster of immense strength and primitive passions.

    David knew and remember what happened at the start of his transformation but had no recollection of what he had done when he was the creature. He searched for a cure traveling around the country taking all sort of odd jobs in order to provide food and clothes for him self and in the same time avoiding the pursuit of investtigative reporter Jack McGee who suspected his secret but had no solid proof.

    The Incredible Hulk was based on the 1962 comic-book character created by Stan Lee.

    After two pilot movies in 1977, "The Incredible Hulk" a two parts first movie originally aired on November 4th,1977 and "A Death In The Family" two parts movie aired on November 27th,1977, the show was first telecasted on March 10th, 1978 until its last telecast on May 12th, 1982 for a total of 5 seasons and 83 episodes including the two pilot movies.

    The cast were:
    *David Bruce Banner ..... Bill Bixby
    *The Incredible Hulk ..... Lue Ferrigno
    *Jack McGee .....

    With the exception of the two 1977 pilot episodes, there is only one(747)episode here in season 1 already in the "Ultimate Collection, the other 9 episodes are not, they are previously un-released episodes, & I personally am glad to see more of the "Hulk" on DVD, when season 2 is released, that might warrant a gripe about already released episodes in the "UC", but for now, this is not exactly a waste of money.

    Like so many other Hulk fans, I WAITED a few years for the complete season to finally come out. I ignored the "Ultimate Collection" set issued in 2003, in the hopes that a season by season box set would arrive. It finally did, and I'm thrilled. Although there isn't much in terms of bonus material, (the interview with Kenneth Johnson is the same as the intitial release of the pilot episode) the quality of remastering is good. Picture is very clean and clear and the sound is good mono. It would have been nice to have some commentary from the celebrity guest stars. Though they were not well known at the time (Loni Anderson, Gerald McRaney) it still would have been nice to have them reminisce about their appearances on the show. Despite these minor quibbles, it's nice to have all of season one COMPLETE without the cuts and edits when it appeared on syndication. Great set for Incredible Hulk fans!

    A Kid's Review on August 11, 2007
    Format: DVD
    WARNING:Spoilers contained herein...
    I'm a new fan of "The Incredible Hulk" (I wasn't alive back in the 70s) and am already hooked on this great story and series; just about everything here is as great as it gets. I guess not having been an original generation fan, and therefore not having spent years of disgruntled waiting for this release to happen, has allowed me to avoid the bad taste that Universal seems to have left in the mouths of some others. That said, I still fail to see how marketing issues, unfortunate as they are, could make anyone dislike the show itself (as seems to have happened with one reviewer here.) I think the DVDs themselves are fine; the packaging is great (perhaps better than the second set), the extras aren't much (though I can't say I've heard the commentary yet, nor seen "Stop the Presses" from season; the latter I'll probably just watch on the season 2 set), but the video and audio quality is good, with a little grain popping up from time to time (this minor issue will, I'm sure, elect enraged outbursts from "technophiles".) So the DVD itself is a 4/5 (it's a TV series so I don't expect that much in the way of bonuses; the occasional quality problems do merit a downgrade in the rating though) but how about the episodes?
    First off, the grading of actual episodes breaks down into two categories: the two films (pilots) contained on disc 1, and the ten regular episodes contained on discs 2-4, and which make up the whole of season 1. For their part, the two pilot films are both enjoyable and important to the series as a whole (obviously; one is the first episode ever and shows the creation of the hulk!) "The Incredible Hulk" (Pilot) is a GREAT human film (and I do think that the humanity of Dr. Banner is one of the greatest elements of the series.

    I'm the first to admit that nostalgia can blind us to the true merits, or lack of, any number of artistic endeavors. This is never more true than when viewing t.v. shows produced in the 70's and 80's. I was nine years old when The Incredible Hulk premiered. And, along with the Six Million Dollar Man, it was just about he coolest thing I'd ever seen. Even then, I knew that the Hulk was just a big strong man in green makeup, But it didn't matter. . .it was a comic book come to life. And what nine year old boy could resist that?

    It was, then with no small amount of trepidation that I approached my old favorite as a 39-year old man. Would it seem cheesy now? I hoped not, but somehow I figured it would have to. Then I watched the pilot episode, probably for the first time at least 20 years. And you know something? There's not much childish about it. I got hooked all over again on the grown-up problems of this man, David Banner. I'm sure that in 1977, I endured all the drama because the payoff was coming: The Big Green Guy would come out and punish wrong-doers. But I really gained a new adult insight into the show. It's NOT about the Hulk, it's about David Banner.

    To be fair, none of the episodes in the series' short first season really quite live up to the feature-quality pilot. But there's Bill Bixby, who makes Banner a wholly believable and sympathetic character. Of course, there's plenty of action for the kid in us all. And there's that tear-jerker piano theme that closes out each episode. . .as Banner must leave behind the new friends (or enemies) he's made and keep moving. And for the cynical-minded, yes, there IS some cheesiness to be had (my favorite: as the Hulk wrestles a grizzly bear, green paint rubs off on the animal in several shots).

    In a world where nothing seems as good as it used to be (or maybe that's just middle age creeping up on me?), The Incredible Hulk still holds up quite well.
