Our copy of "Hell Town" was acquired from another collector. It's quality comes from old analog VHS recordings, so it will not have the crisp look of today's digital playbacks. Video and sound quality is not up to Rewatch's standards, but we offer it to our customers because, as far as we know, this is the ONLY set available featuring episodes from the series.
