That show was such goofy fun. =D

HULK SMASH!

The hub cap was missing when he got out of the car, but when he goes to remove the tire he has to remove the hub cap that wasn't there before.

THIS SHOW IS SO FAKE

He was already looking pretty pist when he left the office... did he really need all that extra time? Maybe he just coulda smashed his finger in the car door, or tripped on something. HULK SMASH

I remember Mad magazine had a segment where Bruce Banner is in a bathroom stall and flies into a rage over the lack of toilet paper - with comedic results.
 
2013-06-25 01:22:08 PM
Wasn't it a tire iron and not a crowbar?
 
2013-06-25 01:22:48 PM
I thought his name was David on the show
 
2013-06-25 01:22:56 PM
It's funny that, when the first Hulk movie came out, everyone was biatching about how it was "Emo-Hulk." But that was pretty much every episode of the TV version.

Bill Bixby was very cool to me for a while.
The Courtship of Eddie's Father.
The Hulk...

I loved that show when I was a little kid. Between "Sledgehammer " and now this Fark has reminded me of some happy childhood memories.

I saw Stewie spoof this on FG.

FatherChaos: Bruce David Banner's first-ever transformation.

According to Lou Ferrigno, CBS thought the name Bruce was "kind-of gayish," so they changed his name to David.

Wow!  ALL of that just over some scraped knuckles??!  Needs some anger management!
 
2013-06-25 01:36:10 PM
If I grew to be twice as big (presumably with twice as big man-parts) but my PANTS did not rip away like the rest of my clothing I think I would be screaming and enraged as well.
 
2013-06-25 01:36:22 PM
Good thing he didn't do that while in flagrante delicto.

IIRC his full name was David Bruce Banner on the show.

As a child, I was always so puzzled at exactly what he would lose his mind over every episode. Even back then, I thought his anger issues seemed rather ridiculous.

awfulperson: It's funny that, when the first Hulk movie came out, everyone was biatching about how it was "Emo-Hulk." But that was pretty much every episode of the TV version.


Hell no. I was just saying that the TV show was better than the 1st movie, I don't know about "Emo Hulk", but that whole farking "Gamma Radiated Dogs" sub plot and the stupid comic book frame editing killed the movie. It was a steaming pile of feces.

Now, when Edward Norton came on the scene, that one was good. I still can't decide who I would have rather had in The Avengers, Ruffalo did a really good job, too.

Now, as for the show, I was all prepared to watch this episode, even sat down and watched the first 10 minutes or so, but something came up and i missed the rest of the episode. I remember all of my friends talking about it the next day, but I was always under the impression that he lifted the car because of some kind of accident. I didn't realize it was just because he skinned his farking knuckles. His fault, really. First thing you should put in your car is a 4-way lug wrench, just for ease of use. As for that shiatty jack, I just call someone at home and have them bring out the floor jack if I can. Sitting in the rain is preferable to using the garbage that came with your car.

Although, I helped change the tire on some car that had a built in jack once, that was pretty sweet.

I'd also add Jason of Star Command.   And maybe Six Million Dollar Man (although that was more of a big budget show).

I thought it was both: David "Bruce" Banner, although I never heard an explanation as to the Bruce part, but I've heard them together. I wonder if that was just post-TV Show to keep canon straight?

Wow.  That was like in the deep recesses of my childhood memories, along with that killer robot tank in the Six Million Dollar Man.

Hulk wasn't "crap", it was pretty good. Spider-Man and Captain America? THOSE were crap. Jesus, they sucked. I've tried to watch them for nostalgia purposes, didn't work outr so well. Long story short, I spent some time on a suicide watch.

What's the 4th show on there? Is that Dr Strange? I seem to vaguely remember that a Dr Strange show existed.

Remarkable constraint.  I would have turned green at the thought of having to walk in the rain.

Sad that Andre the Giant was not initially given credit as Bigfoot in the 6 Million Dollar Man.

SirEattonHogg: And maybe Six Million Dollar Man


Fark you. Fark you very much. With a rusty chainsaw. One that has been at a dairy farm for 20 years. And I hope you get rabies with your tetanus.

Six Million Dollar Man was awesome. TV has evolved, and the type of things that would make a plot have some depth weren't really allowed on TV back then, the deaths were off-camera, or the bullets didn't touch anybody(ATeam). Dead bodies just looked like some chick on Roofies, and so on. Also, even non-CGI effects have grown by leaps and bounds AND are affordable for TV.

Six Million Dollar Man was a great show for its time. Most action stuff doesn't hold up at all by today's standards, no matter the show, and the writing was more vanilla, for reasons explained above.

OK, I take my first statements back, we wen't look to give you rabies and tetanus while violating you with a chainsaw. But I hope you've learned your lesson.  ;-)

It was a Dr. Strange tv movie.  A pilot for a show that never was.

The linked 12-minute clip alone had quite a few errors in it, continuity and otherwise. If the entire series went like that I believe we can safely say it's crap. It's basically a live-action cartoon.

I love how as the Hulk his first two side panel punches cause the same damage as would a baseball hitting it.

Subby Nerd FAIL!

In the TV show he was known as David Banner.
 
2013-06-25 01:55:40 PM
Don't play a prank on him, he doesn't like that.

Be kind, it was an early, rushed edit job I did. I think I improved later...

MAD Magazine picked up on that, and had him in the background:

I came here to talk about that episode.  Saw it a few years ago and laughed my ass off.

I'm glad when they get smart and do pilots on some of this shiat to see if it's worth doing, rather than run a whole season, waste everyone's time  and kill a good time slot.

Yeah, it was from the first episode. People get experience, other people get replaced, successful shows get better and that's how they last 5 years. Not everyone who comes on to a new show is a 20 year veteran. It's still hokey and dated today, but the show was pretty good.
