Average episode but Ferrigno does well in his dual role
31 October 2008 | by ODDBearSee all my reviews

It was inevitable that that the creators of "The Incredible Hulk" would give Lou Ferrigno a speaking role after playing the big green dude for so long. Well, maybe it wasn't but I sure did like the fact they gave the guy a chance to play a normal person at last.

As is, "King of the Beach" falls in the average bin for there is nothing particularly memorable on display here (except for the obvious). Ferrigno does well and the writer inserted many real life scenarios from his life in the storyline, which was a very good idea I thought.

Not the cream of the crop as far the series is concerned but an enjoyable episode nonetheless.
