Back in 2003 when Universal was all gung-ho about the cinema debut of the updated, and critically panned, Hulk movie, they dug into the archives and pulled out this as the original series first ever box-set. Many fans were outraged that they were given this best-of 14 episode set rather than complete seasons. Of course a few years later, they got what they wanted, but this box-set should have been given a better chance. Think of this as a great addition to the "casual" fan. Featuring episodes from the first four seasons (for some strange reason NO shows from Season Five are included), this is like "Hulk 101", but not without a few flaws. For some reason the shows are not in chronological order, jumping all over it's six discs, that of which aren't labeled with each episode nor is the box telling you where each episode is. Another quirk is that even though most of these shows would be considered the best of the series, it's as if most of the better ones were two-parter shows. In fact, ten of the hours are, while eight are not. And finally, each season is not represented equally here, with Season Two getting six shows, Four has five, One has only two, and Season Three only one. But there's no denying that they make up some of the best hours the show ever produced. Even though five years of release separate them, the video/audio quality between this "Ultimate" release and the "Complete Seasons" are the same, and that's not a bad thing. So due to the quality of the shows contained, I've overlooked it's flaws and suggest it to any fan that would like a "Best Of The Hulk" in their collection.
With all the recent Marvel films that have come out over the past ten years, this television chapter should be revisited by all. Minus the hairstyles and clothing, it truly doesn't look aged that much. And I would take an actual actor sprayed green over fakey cartoonish CGI anyday. A worthy addition to your Fantasy/Sci-Fi DVD collection.
-RedSabbath Rating (8.5/10)-
I loved this show since I was a kid. This set was disappointing though. I was hoping for, (expecting), a real good set of episodes with tons of extras or ...something. When dvd product says "Ultimate Collection", it should be. This is not. Its a set of random episodes "chosen by fans" in a flashy package. I was fooled, wait for the season by season releases.
The Incredible Hulk is the rarest of Superhero genre television shows, a translation of a comic book to a much broader audience. It does this by focusing on characters rather than action.
There are no supervillians. There are just ordinary people who need help in dealing with everyday problems. Banner tries to make progress on his "Hulk" problem in nearly every episode, but in doing so he inevitably has to deal with other people and their problems.
The shows restatement of the original Hulk premise is encapsulated in the long montage that opens the pilot. This isn't a story about the Hulk so much as it is a story about relationships, love, romance, and the complications that our flaws bring to our lives.
i like the hulk cd set,i think maybe they should be clear on what your getting like call it
'the best 17'the word series in the title people think they are getting the season series,but overall i like what i got,cause im a true hulk fan,the overall 6disc set is worth the price ,
These are but another story line of the Hulk and the man who's tring to find the cure for the curture. On his many advances they help many people and charging the lives forever.
