Product Description

The Incredible Hulk roars again as every thrilling episode from the fifth season arrives on DVD! Reunited with former scientist David Banner (Primetime Emmy Award nominee Bill Bixby) as he takes on more death-defying adventures that place him closer to finding a cure for his alter ego, the ferocious Incredible Hulk (Lou Ferrigno). Will he finally find peace from the rages that make him mean and green? With all-new DVD-exclusive bonus content featuring show creator Kenneth Johnson, and an amazing slate of guest stars, it’s the ultimate DVD set of the season so intense you won’t want to miss a minute!

Amazon.com

The television adventures of Dr. David Banner and his muscle-bound, anger-prone alter ego The Incredible Hulk come to an abrupt conclusion with The Complete Fifth Season set. As fans of the cult series know all too well, a slight change in ratings and costs for the series prompted its parent network to pull the plug on the show before its fifth season was launched; prior to this, seven episodes had been shot immediately after the conclusion of the fourth season in anticipation of the union strike that brought TV production to a halt in 1981. The Hulk's producers had hoped to bring the series to a more concise conclusion in its fifth season, but were denied the opportunity to shoot an additional nine episodes in order to accomplish that goal. As it stands, The Incredible Hulk ends on an ambiguous note, with Bill Bixby's David Banner still plagued by the monster (Lou Ferrigno) inside of him, and with no opportunity for a cure in sight; it's a disappointment, considering the care and maturity that the show took in presenting its comic book-inspired material. The final seven episodes are also somewhat lackluster, with only the eerie "finale," "A Minor Problem," as the stand out. Still, fans who've carried the torch for the TV Hulk over the past two decades will want the set, if only to have the complete network run in their collection. The DVD includes two featurettes: the first is a sentimental look back at the show's final days by producer Kenneth Johnson and members of the writing and production team, while the second, a gag reel, does much to imply that Bill Bixby was not as dour in real life as David Banner. However, the continued absence of Ferrigno from the supplemental material remains a curious and glaring oversight. -- Paul Gaita

    The final season of "The Incredible Hulk" consists of just 7 episodes and I'm not really all that sure as to how many of these were actual season 5 episodes. The fourth season was cut short due to a writers strike, had a late start and only 18 episodes. Before the fifth season got underway the show had already been canceled.

    As is, this is easily the weakest season overall. Of the 7 episodes, three are worthy of the best the series had to offer.

    1. The Phenom: BAD. Bad acting, bad story, lame Hulk action and an overall silly overtone ruin this one.

    2. Two Godmothers: Nothing special. Stretches credibility, even by Hulk standards, weak writing and lame acting. OK Hulk-out in the middle but this is overall a forgettable affair.

    3. Veteran: Pretty good. Overall a suspenseful episode with a good plot twist, solid acting, good Hulk action and some nifty flashbacks.

    4. Sanctuary: Solid. I'd read some bad reviews for this one but I was pleasantly surprised. It's nothing special but it's entertaining nonetheless. I did find it odd to cast Diana Muldaur (previously cast as David's sister in the Season 3 episode "Homecoming") as the head nun.

    5. Triangle: Solid. OK affair in which David falls for a woman but fate rears it's ugly head and sends him on his way once again. Nice twist in the end and this proved to be Jack McGee's swansong in the original series.

    6. Slaves: BAD. Nice scenery, nice location, OK story and good actors on paper but all is for naught in this very lame episode. Horrible sequences and beyond bad acting performances sink this puppy. It's a credit to Bixby that he managed to keep a straight face among these actors who are not having a good day.

    7. A Minor Problem: Good.

    My least favorite season of the series. No series finale, no conclusions it simply ends. Some idjit took over briefly (I don't remember if it was the station or studio, but) he and canceled a bunch of series's, it didn't matter what their ratings were and The Hulk was one that got axed. Presumably because he didn't like it. Raw deal. This season is subtitled in English for the deaf as are all of the special features, as are every season.

    THE LAST GREAT SEASON OF THE INCREDIBLE HULK. IT IS SO SAD THAT WE GET 7 EPISODES AND THAT THE SHOW WAS CUT SHORT. ONE OF MY FAVORITE SHOWS THAT I REMEBER FROM CHILDHOOD. BILL BIXBY WAS GREAT AND LOU WAS GREAT AS THE HULK. LOU DID SUCH A AWESOWM JOB AS THE HULK. GOODBYE DAVID.

    My kids (who are now grown and have families of their own) always thought there Mom was a bit odd because I liked The Incredible Hulk - way before the newer movies came out. I had Hulk shirts and toys and comics and photos and even a watch. I told them all about the Incredible Hulk series on TV from when I was younger -- actually the show came out the year my first son was born... I was 25, not exactly a 'youth'. But I liked the HULK comics before that.

    So, when I noticed that the original TV Movies and Series/Seasons had come out on DVD, I rounded them up - some on Amazon, some elsewhere, some new, some used. I got he Fourth and Fifth Seasons on a great sale from Amazon just last week. They arrived quickly. And now my set is complete - well, except for one of the two recent movies... not Bill Bixby/Lou movies

    I bought the show for my dad and myself. I remember growing up watching it with him before school. Getting this show so I can watch it with my dad now brings back good memories. I would recommend the tv series over the movies that they made now a days.

    If you saw any of the commentary in the earlier season sets; Bixby's son in real life passed away from an infection. Sadly I do believe it influenced the production. It showed in Bixby's energy and approach. I was disappointed the show left when it did. There was so much more we could have seen. Too bad there was never a series finale. It deserved so much better.

    The show was cancelled due to a management change at CBS. However the remaining episodes are worth your time. Without giving an analysis of remaining ones, they were at least intellegently written. If this show is ever brought back to TV, I hope the powers that be get someone as good as Bill Bixby.

    I always watched this series growing up, and watched it religiously every Friday night. I bought season 5 because I remember the episode with actress Faye Grant very well, I and always thought she was extremely lovely.

    As many viewers points out this is the weakest of all the seasons simply there's only 7 episodes not enough to really gauge the a full 20 shows season would be like. Also disappointing is that Kenneth Johnson was to properly end the show had there been a full season, we only now have the telefilm "Death of the Incredible Hulk" as a final chapter to this wonderfully crafted television series. Here's to Bill Bixby the once and always HULK (and David Banner too).
