An outlaw band flees a posse and rides into Refuge, a small town where no one carries a gun, drinks, or swears. The town is actually Purgatory, and the peaceful inhabitants are all famous dead outlaws and criminals such as Doc Holiday and Wild Bill Hickok who must redeem themselves before gaining admittance to Heaven...or screw up and go to Hell. The residents must either defend themselves against the outlaws and risk eternal damnation... or die a second time. Written by
Doc Holliday was indeed a dentist and not a physician. In the Old West, however, remote towns often had to use what they had for medical care. Physicians were scarce, so if a town did not have a doctor they would go to the dentist, veterinarian, or even barber for care. Also sometimes physicians would be called upon to care for sick animals if needed. It is therefore not that far of a reach that a dentist would serve as the town doctor. See more »
Outlaws heading for Mexico stumble across a small town called Refuge, where no one carries a weapon and everyone welcomes strangers with open arms. Problem is, these outlaws aren't having any of it, and decide to burn down the place. Refuge, as we quickly discover, is actually the Purgatory of the Bible, and is populated by such western stalwarts as Wild Bill Hicock and Doc Holliday. For these familiar figures, there is a vexsome problem: if they take to violence, they will get shipped off to Hell post-haste. What's a man to do? A wonderful TV western, fanciful and dramatic at the same time. Several familiar actors including Sam Shepherd (erroneously listed as Sam Elliott on some electronic TV guides), Eric Roberts and Randy Quaid keeps things hopping.
