Nostalgia Theater Podcast: Remembering TV's The Incredible Hulk

For the latest Nostalgia Theater show I take a look back at one of my favorite TV shows, The Incredible Hulk, which aired on CBS from 1978 to 1982, and has enjoyed a perpetual afterlife through syndicated reruns. The series, developed by Kenneth Johnson and starring Bill Bixby & Lou Ferrigno as the two sides of Dr. David Banner ("Physician. Scientist"), was the first attempt to take a Marvel Comics character seriously in the mainstream, and you can draw a straight line from its successful approach right through to the current age of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Joining me for this conversation is former Hulk comic book writer (and TV show superfan) Glenn Greenberg for a fun and fact-filled chat that will leave you feeling anything but anger or outrage. You can catch the show via the embed below, or subscribe at iTunesStitcher RadioTuneIn Radio, or Google Play (and remember to leave a review!). As always, send all questions or comments our way via MovieFilmPodcast@gmail.com, and don't forget to hit "like" on our Facebook page.
