Made-for-TV Hulk

ImageThe Incredible Hulk, Seasons 3 and 4 (Universal)
Smartly, Universal is timing its third and fourth season releases of the 1970's series starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno to the opening of the new -- and, from early reports, troubled -- Hulk film starring Ed Norton as the mild-mannered hero with thyroid and skin color problems. The original series sidestepped camp by taking itself just seriously enough: Bixby’s everyman persona worked best in this role, and Ferrigno only had to show off his rippling muscles in shades of green.
