My guest is Patrick Jankiewicz. He has a new Hulk book out and he brought his brother Don Jankiewicz and we weed off to 70’s TV and comic books. I try to bring it back to the Hulk a couple times, I was overwhelmed. Plenty of suggestions for reading! Enjoy.

    I'll counterpropose 1968 as a Best Year for fantasticated films in release...THE HOUR OF THE WOLF, SHAME (yes, 2 from Ingmar Bergman!), 2001, ROSEMARY'S BABY, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, such flawed but interesting films as THE ILLUSTRATED MAN, THE POWER, WEEKEND, CHARLY, BARBARELLA, SPIRITS OF THE DEAD, BLACKBEARD'S GHOST, YELLOW SUBMARINE and such associational items as TARGETS and THE WITCHFINDER GENERAL/THE CONQUEROR WORM...and then there's Rod Serling's version of Pierre Boulle's PLANET OF THE APES.

    And then there's 1964...DR. STRANGELOVE, ONIBABA, ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS, KWAIDAN, FIRST MEN IN THE MOON...

    I kinda missed any discussion of The Abomination...much more fun than the (first?) crossover that had the Hulk facing off with Superman, Batman with Spider-man...

    Todd Mason, literalist
    Now, now...PORKY'S wasn't my 14yo idea of a good or even a good-bad film (the way the CAT PEOPLE remake was, to say nothing of the European softcore HBO would run in those years--hey, the 1970s were good years for a little sex on PBS drama, as well, a little of which was still visible in the '80s) and the girls might not like HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP because the titular creatures mostly rape the women they find...or so I recall from the reviews, I still haven't seen it.

    CBS was the "Tiffany" network to the extent that it tried to be the most sophisticated of the commercial nets in the US...within a very generous frame...this was the network which plagued us with THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES, after all (though it had purged that show along with most of the other "rural"-skewing comedies in the early '70s), and only reluctantly scheduled ALL IN THE FAMILY (which had been kicking around for several years when CBS took a flyer on it) or M*A*S*H, so you can see the scheduling genius of William Paley and his staff at work (though I suppose we must given them credit for letting the shows on at all). The Bixby/Universal HULK, of course, only happened because THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN and THE BIONIC WOMAN were such solid hits for ABC, and WONDER WOMAN briefly also. STAR WARS not much of a factor there. (HAWAII FIVE-0 not a Universal show, fwiw, even with the constant references on MAGNUM P.I., which was, and which inherited the H50 studio in Hawaii.)

    The first Brosnan Bond film, GOLDENEYE, is actually one of the better Bond films in the series, though it's helped enormously by the presence of Famke Janssen. The others are pretty sorry affairs, as most Bond films are.

    MOONLIGHTING not only cuted up Even Further the concept of REMINGTON STEELE, but also stole proudly from THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, which was the part of that series that bothered me enormously...feminist sympathies made watching Willis getting over on Shepherd every week a drag, and kute bugs me real quick.
