* {{Narm}}: [[FilmingForEasyDubAny time a scene with the Hulk has bystanders speaking, the dialogue is added post-production]] because the Hulk is constantly subjected to {{Overcrank}} for dramatic effect and the limitations of the film and recording equipment at the time made it difficult to perfect the timing of speaking parts without the slow-motion sequences distorting the audio captures, so the vocal audio parts (aside from Lou Ferrigno's Hulk noises) were recorded separately on a sound stage. Because none of the vocal performances are live, they ''always'' sound so fake and shoehorned in, like a crummy {{Franchise/Godzilla}} dub, with the tones and delivery of the lines never meshing cleanly with the scenes of the Hulk. Worse, a lot of the time, the dialogue would be thrown in while the characters were off-screen, making it painfully obvious they couldn't lip-sync any of the sound bytes, or even sound like they're in the same place as the Hulk (characters from afar sound too loud for it to sound believable and like they're blurting their lines out or just plain shouting into the mics).

** David constantly using an alias that takes the form of David B-whatever. The only reason he keeps getting away with it is because the series took place in TheSeventies, which predated the age of integrated computers, and most records were still kept in paper and had no through-line in the form of the modern Internet to tie them all together. Yet, it's so paper-thin that if the story were set in today's computerized age, where records can be tied together, he'd be tracked down quite easily because all someone would have to do is ping all the occurrences of those symmetrical David B-whatever aliases across job employment databases and they could triangulate his movements across the country and the fugitive saga would be over in a heartbeat.

** Season 3 had a lot of [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment inexplicable cheesy humor injected into the stories]], sometimes working against their otherwise unrelentingly serious tone in a bad way, such as the Hulk being attracted to a green store mannequin in an otherwise tension-filled standoff between criminals who wanted to raid a mall vault. Probably a result of the following:

* SoOkayItsAverage: The film got an alright critical reception, but audiences didn't respond anywhere near as strongly to it as they did with Iron Man and it's typically regarded as a middle-of-the-road movie that is often forgotten and not talked about much.

** The Hulk never hits or kicks anyone outright. He just throws them aside. Though it's probably because David is influencing the Hulk not to directly harm anybody in this incarnation of the Hulk (while others are more freely berserk), one can determine from consecutive viewings of the show that it's because standards wouldn't allow it. The one time the Hulk got close to inflicting real harm on people is when David accidentally uncorked the dark side of his personality and all his repressed primal urges for violence bled out in the Hulk's transformation.
