Fridge: Silverado

  • Silverado and Turley, the town where John Cleese plays the sheriff, are in many ways opposites of each other; Turley is a place with mostly honest but overly strict law enforcement that, while peaceful, is quite unfairly authoritarian in many ways, while Silverado is a place with a corrupt and lax sheriff that lets criminals get away with their crimes. The ending when Paden becomes the new sheriff implies that Silverado will eventually become something in between, a place with firm but fair law enforcement.
