The Hulk as he was

I’m currently watching an old Bill Bixby Hulk Movie. Before the big screen ‘block busters’, we had Bill and Lou as part of the Banner/Hulk duo. The eyes turn green, the shirt rips and somehow he can keep the same pants buttoned.

No animation here, just one very big man in green makeup. I liked these shows when they first were first on the air. I liked the stories they wrote, and I liked the acting in the show. The show holds its own even after 20 years. That is a tribute to good writing, directing and acting.

After starting to watch this show, I am hoping to see some of Bill Bixby’s other shows. My Favorite Martian, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father and The Magician. I will have to look see if I can find DVD’s of these other shows. I wonder if they will hold up to the test of time.

  1. I was a fan of this show as a kid, though I don’t remember it much.
    We recently watched an old horror movie from the early 80’s – The Thing, and it was nice to see all of the horror effects being done without the cheesy CGI effects.

  2. We have a Hulk movie double feature, 5 TV seasons, The Invasion of Johnson County, 2 seasons of My Favorite Martian, Steambath, and several things that seem to be cameos in other series. Let me know if you “need” any of them.

    Oh, and one of my favorite movies with low-budget special effects? The Adventures of the Baron Munchausen (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096764/).
