"I just received The Incredible Hulk: The Complete Series. I watched the pilot so far, and the video looks great considering how long ago the show was on television. It looks just about as good as you can get TV content to look on DVD. The DVD menus are well done.
With regard to the content of the series, I assume most are buying the whole series because they are fans of the series.
For those who aren't fans (plot spoiler of the pilot here, though), but are of the movies, the show was and is now on DVD a much deeper story than any TV or big screen adaptation of the comic character The HULK. You have a story starting with Banner having a dream which shifts to a nightmare. First, he is having a dream of good times with the love of his life, but it turns to a nightmare when it shows the car accident that actually happened. He is only injured slightly, but his love if trapped in the car and David makes desperate attempts to get her out. From there, after he wakes from the nightmare, we go to a story of him feeling inadequate because he could not save his loved one but so many others have through a hidden strength. After some dangerous experimentation (not very scientific at all) to alleviate his perceived inadequacies, he goes through one of those end of work day evenings that have angered us all. Nothing's working right, it's pouring outside and he gets soaked, car has trouble starting, gets a flat tire, and his anger just keeps steeping, which I think many have had days like this and have eventually taken our anger out on something in some small way. However, while changing his tire, he injures himself, the pot runneth over and he hulks out, and really takes his anger out on his car. Later on the Hulk seems to kill David Banner, and then Banner is on the run after that, hitchhiking around, working odd jobs under various aliases (some of the last names repeated through the series, it seems), while trying to find a cure for his new ailment of severe rage. And all the time being pursued by a reporter who basically caused Banner's supposed death by way of extreme nosiness, in the first place. (He knocked over the chemical that caused a fire that destroys the lab, because after snooping around the lab he hides in the chemical closet. He was breaking and entering, so he is really the criminal and could be considered responsible for Elena's death, not the HULK.)
The packaging design consists of a large rectangular box with a lift-off lid, with all the DVDs in individual slim DVD cases, stacked in two stacks next to each other, whch makes for a wide rectangular box, and not something that easily files in with the rest of one's DVD collection. The graphic on the lid is a four image transition of Banner to the HULK with eack image in one of the letters. What you probably cannot see in the pictures on Amazon is that each letter has a clear plastic bubble bulging out of the letter cutout, and the plastic is see-through. Kind of an interesting design, but I guess I would have liked to see it be a bright green see-through plastic, maybe with a gradiated effect, from left to right almost no green to more green in front of the HULK images. Note: If removing the cellophane shrink-wrap with a sharp object, cut around the edge of the box, and not the top. My guess would be that the bubble lettering plastic can probably be pierced if you try to open the package there. Just a tip."
UNIVERSAL GETS READY TO HULK OUT WITH HULKING BOX SET

"This set and a new complete Knight Rider series will be released on the same day. Oct 21, 2008. So far seasons 1-4 total 18 single sided discs. Season 5 will also be released on the same day. since it was only 6 episodes I believe it will be a 2 disc set. This will total the 20 discs this set claims to contain. So if you don't have the four already released seasons then I recommend this set. If you have them just get season 5. Unless more bonus features are announced, I see no reason for a double dip."
This is unbelievable and probably one of the best "gifts" I

"My 6 year old son had been talking about the Hulk for several months, he plays with Hulk games as well as the on-line game. I remember telling him about the television show and how I used to watch this show every week when I was growing up.
Well a few days before Christmas this year I decided to search for the Hulk television show in the hopes that I might be able to buy the entire series. I had no idea if it was even available and it was. When I factor in the hours and hours of entertainment that this gift has brought this is an amazing deal. I figured if my son, wife and 4 year old daughter didn't watch it, I would. Well as soon as the Hulk arrived and I put on the first episode EVERYONE was glued to the tv. My wife, who never saw the original tv show and a person I did not think would be into this said, "I love it, this is really a very well done show".
We are taking our time watching the series and watch about 3 episodes a week. We are now up to the end of season two. I have no idea what I am going to do when this is over. Ahead of the series being over I think I am going to buy the 3 Hulk movies that Bill Bixby did. A great gift."
