Very Good
12 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have only very fond memories of this too short lived clever and well done TV series. It came on after Highway To Heaven and was in my opinion the better show. Bobby Blake was great. I loved the cast and the stories. And I just loved the theme song sung by Sammy Davis Jr. Sammy had also sung the theme to Bobby's other series Berreta. And the 2 themes did sound very similar. I was trying to find the Hell Town lyrics when I found the IMDb listing.

HT should have been helped to continue. It was a 'hell' of a good TV series. It had heart and soul..

I so would like to see this series get put out on DVD. I would buy it.
