Quotes

Nat: You know, I once knew a man, and when he cheated on his wife, he used to bring home a turkey. He used to stay out all night long, and he'd tell her that he was at the Men's Rotary club, and he won the turkey in a raffle! I always wondered what would happen if she got tired of drumsticks.

Who needs a gun when you've got a tractor?
30 November 2017 | by flarefan-81906See all my reviews

This one gave me high hopes. It hooks you from the get-go as a bloodied young man is frantically running from two mysterious men with guns. Later, when the title character is introduced, the mother-and-child themes brought up are powerful ones.

Ultimately, though, there's very little to say about this episode. Early on the villain, Nat, is hinted to be an overbearing but ultimately well-meaning man who is on the wrong side of the law as a matter of chance and circumstance rather than inclination. About 1/3 of the way in he's suddenly cast as a mindless sociopath who does evil for the sake of doing evil, a jarring shift which makes him one-dimensional to the point of being outright silly. The silliness climaxes when Nat, rather than shooting the heroes, tosses aside his gun and go gets a tractor to slowly pile dirt on them. Seriously. And no, they are not unconscious at this point.

However, those looking for good unintentional laughs should look elsewhere. Whether it's the uncomfortable sight of Nat slapping around Danny's mom or the dreary feeling that just about everything here has already been done in previous episodes of The Incredible Hulk, it seems impossible to muster a laugh at "Danny".

The episode does stir up a few strong moments, particularly the scenes in which David drives with baby Danny (great work from Bixby once again), but ultimately it's enough to push it into "worth watching" territory.
