You betcha! In this episode, entitled "Homecoming," David Banner returns to his childhood home to reunite with his estranged family: his sister, also a scientist like David, and his father, a farmer. Previously hurt feelings arise among them, but they must work together against a greedy land developer who wants to take away the family's farmland. Throw the Hulk into the mix, and you have a recipe for action!

Welcome back! I hope you all had a great Halloween season; I certainly did! With that and the Countdown behind us, let's move on to other fun stuff.
This summer I read a fascinating book called Live From New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live. The book is an oral history of the legendary TV series told by the many people who have been a part of it both on and off camera. I highly recommend it if you're a fan of classic TV and comedy.
Reading the book inspired me to do a bit of a dive into classic SNL online, and I found this great collection of onscreen auditions from some of the most popular cast members of the show. It's over a half hour long, so you're sure to see at least a couple of your favorite performers.

The last long-form program for the Countdown is a fun one. Today I feature a Halloween episode of the '80s action series The Fall Guy. The series stars Lee Majors as Colt Seavers, a full-time Hollywood stunt man and part-time bounty hunter who, with help from his friends, captures crooks on the run for extra money.
In this episode, Colt is supposed to be part of a horror movie starring Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (played, of course, by the always wonderful Cassandra Peterson) filming in an old house, but the owner of the house refuses to let the crew film there. Soon after, supernatural hijinks happen--or are they really supernatural?
The Fall Guy was always a lighthearted series, but this episode is even more tongue in cheek than usual. And they're not just paying lip service to Halloween with an episode title like "October the 31st." This episode actually aired on Halloween night, 1984.
Enjoy! Make the most of this last spooky weekend! Please come back Monday for my last article for the Countdown to Halloween!
