Gone are the days of Banner getting his butt kicked, or being tied up and thrown into a pit, or combine, or wrestling cage. Instead, Banner's life is threatened maybe once or twice this season, and the majority of these episodes deal with Banner helping someone in peril: a woman with a debilitaing illness (Married), an alcoholic (Alice in Disco Land), and a derranged writer (No Escape).
While most of the episodes end with The Hulk exacting revenge on several of his tormentors, "A Child In Need" focuses on one individual whom The Hulk teaches quite a lesson. An episode leftover from season one, "A Child in Need" was almost not aired by CBS at the time due to its rather sensitive content (child abuse). In the end, The Hulk gives the episode's antagonist a taste of his own medicine. No multiple bad guys, no police, just The Hulk and his adversary mono y mono. The end result is perhaps the most powerful scene in the entire five year run of the show that still strikes an emotional cord 30 years later.
The only real less than stellar episodes for the season are "Wildfire," "A Solitary Place," and the season finale "Vendetta Road." By the end of this season, The Hulk's TV popularity was unquestionable. Although there are some exceptional episodes from seasons three and four, this was as good as The Hulk would get as far as overall season quality goes. For the 1979-80 season, the writers began to tinker with the formula, and the results were sometimes less than spectacular.
Here is what you'll see:
Married - One of the legendary episodes from the whole series. Here we see Dr. Banner travel to Hawaii to consult Dr. Carolyn Fields about his condition. The relationship turns from doctor/patient into love but ends in tragedy in this gripping two hour episode! Bonus commentary that was originally featured on this eppy by Kenneth Johnson on the "The Incredible Hulk: Original Television Movie" is also on this release.
The Antowuk Horror - After an encounter with The Hulk, a local resident create their own "Hulk" to try to increase the tourist dollars.
Ricky - A mentally challenged young man is duped into driving a defective car in a demolition derby.
Rainbow's End - Seeing how a special indian compound worked to calm a wild horse, Dr. Banner seeks the remedy for his own terrible condition. He also must prevent the murder of this same horse.
A Child In Need - While working as a gardner, David runs across an abused child. While trying to investigate this, he tangles with the child's father. The Hulk dishes his own lesson to the abusive parent.
Another Path - While traveling, David meets Li Song, a blind martial artist that suggests his own techniques may be the path to controling The Hulk.
Alice In Disco Land - Dr. Banner encounters a child from his past (who is now an adult) with a drinking problem.Read more ›

Great, so know we only have three seasons and 48 episodes left before we own the complete 5 Seasons (total 83 episodes), I just hope that Universal releases all the remaining seasons very soon.
Thanks and have a nice day :)
What a wonderful tv series, "The Incredible Hulk," is ,great for all ages. I liked watching it as a kid and now in my 30's appreciate the storylines in the series even more. Great action scenes done so well, even better without the computer technology of today. Which gave it enough action, and also the human element as well, which made it seem all the more real. As David Banner or the Hulk, they were both portrayed with great humanity , a sense of justice, tempered by compassion. I think all the stories and episodes in this season are first rate, but I think Married the two hour movie was done very well.
The commentary on the episodes is interesting and fun to listen too. The series deifintly has something for everyone.
