of the Incredible Hulk to either of the Hulk movies.  I think the TV show was able to convey the
story of a man on the run with a one of a kind problem, who had a big heart and went out of his way
to help people and it always got him in trouble. Another thing I find interesting today that I was
too young to realize back then is that it was set against the backdrop of the Carter recession and
dealt with a transient man who was constantly trying to find menial work in America and barely
getting by and he was working different low-level jobs every week.

I always liked the 70s Incredible Hulk pilot which I seeked out on dvd.
