Bixby had 1 1/2 hours in the pilot, and already there, his was the definitive portrayal. It's not like he only began to own the role after 5 seasons. He owned it during the first few minutes of the pilot. Most people universally acknowledge that Bixby's portrayal was so powerful even apart from the series that followed.
So only having 2 hours is no excuse for any of the other Hulk actors to establish themselves and their presence.
