Fabulous Films releases The Incredible Hulk: The Complete Collection – a 26 DVD boxset incorporating all 80 episodes from the five TV seasons which ran between 1977 and 1982, the two original feature-length TV films, and for the first time together with the episodes we get the three later TV Movies: The Incredible Hulk Returns (1988), The Trial of the Incredible Hulk (1989), and The Death of the Incredible Hulk (1990) – which were originally packaged in a separate boxset. This much-loved and fondly remembered series starred Bill Bixby as David ‘Bruce’ Banner and Mr Universe body builder Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk...

I reviewed the Blu-ray release of the series back in 2016, and the TV Movie DVD Trilogy boxset in 2018. For much more detailed reviews please read those. All the extras appear to be the same; the only difference is this set contains all DVDs, whereas my review for the series was Blu-rays. This brings me on to the quality which some people have reported as poor. Certainly, I remember the Blu-rays as being slightly higher quality, but the restored DVDs are fine. They bear close scrutiny and, ironically, it is the distance shots which are occasionally grainy. Nevertheless, this was a great series, and I challenge anyone not to be drawn into this at times tense and emotional world which is not out of place in a comic book setting.
