TV – Don’t Make Him Angry. You Wouldn’t Like Him When He’s Angry. But He’s Definitely Entertaining When He’s Angry. Watch The Incredible Hulk on Me TV.

DC Comics icons Superman and Batman are giving up 30 minutes each and will share the 6 p.m. hour to make room for The Incredible Hulk at 7 p.m. on Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night.

Although Marvel Comics’ monstrous mainstay has since starred in two of his own big-screen movies as well as the Avengers films, his definitive and most critically-acclaimed live-action interpretation remains the classic hit television series of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Bill Bixby stars as mild-mannered scientist David Banner, who, after exposing himself to an accidental overdose of gamma radiation, reacts to the slightest provocation by hulking out in the form of green-painted bodybuilder and muscleman Lou Ferrigno (another actor interviewed by me who’s now on Me TV).

While on the run from unrelenting newspaper reporter Jack McGee (Jack Colvin), who has a penchant for making Banner angry even though Mr. McGee wouldn’t like him when he’s angry, Banner and his beastly alter ego end up helping all manner of people in all manner of despair.

After Banner finishes hulking out, Super Sci-Fi Saturday continues with DC Comics’ Wonder Woman at 8 p.m., followed by Star Trek at 9 p.m., Svengoolie at 10 p.m., and Irwin Allen productions Lost in Space and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea at midnight and 1 a.m.
