Trivia

NBC chief executive Brandon Tartikoff wanted to lure Robert Blake back to television, but claimed in his autobiography that "in order to try to screw somebody, I probably screwed myself." At the time Blake approached Tartikoff with the idea for a series, Blake was being considered for the role of David Addison on "Moonlighting." Tartikoff gleefully snapped up Blake for "Hell Town," causing "Moonlighting'"s producers to settle on their second choice, an actor who had recently appeared on NBC's "Miami Vice" and impressed them - Bruce Willis.

Could have been great
18 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed watching this series while it lasted. The concept was interesting and potentially a great vehicle for exploring values and character. However, at times, the actors, especially Blake, were somewhat over the top and seemed to be suffering from a lack of discipline and direction. A few times I wondered whether Blake was directing shows himself or, in some other way had too much control over the show. The characters were interesting and diverse and the idea of an island of generosity and care existing in a sea of poverty, despair and cruelty was appealing. I think it could have been a real winner with good, solid direction and writing. Too bad Blake bailed out before it had a chance to get it together.
