Critic Reviews for The Incredible Hulk Season 5

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It was this contrast of Jekyll and Hyde -- as Banner roved the country seeking a cure for the blood malady that caused his transformation -- that made the show popular worldwide.

Jul 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Lou Ferrigno...was not the first incarnation of the giant green superhero with lots of pent-up aggression, but he is arguably the most recognizable.

Jul 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It was deeply emotional, intense, funny and action-packed.

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

What saves The Incredible Hulk? Well, two things: The show plays nearly all of this with a straight face, and -- perhaps more importantly -- the talent of Bill Bixby.

Mar 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The mix of episodes produced contained the usual formula of Fugitive-inspired visits to downtrodden communities where Banner could make a difference for the better before being forced to leave.

Audience Reviews for The Incredible Hulk: Season 5

  • Oct 17, 2020
    Great season i mean wow
  • Jul 31, 2020
    An unfortunate end that resolves nothing and keeps the same tired formula. Only Bixby makes it work.
  • Oct 05, 2018
    The worst version of Hulk so far. Although some episodes are good, the spice effects are awful, the actors are fake and many scenes are completely unrealistic; Apart from the fact that this Hulk has nothing to do with the real Hulk. I would not recommend anything.
