Show Notes

It's finally time for the Hulk movie with Thor in it!  The one we were supposed to cover near Thor: Love and Thunder's release but c'est la vie, the show must go on!  This is the third TV movie in Bill Bixby's The Incredible Hulk series, and the first of the three reunion movies to come after 5 seasons of the show and a 6 year hiatus.  Each of these was intended to serve as a backdoor pilot for new Marvel shows, and this clearly sets up an unproduced Thor series.

On Keep or Cancel , we're discussing 80s Chris Hemsworth, Eric Kramer!

The Incredible Hulk Returns (1988) is available to rent on Apple TV Shows (or iTunes) or Amazon Prime Video.
