Is it a dream or not? Hard to tell. A great episode, especially thanks to the characters from "Downsville", who you can definitely visualize.

Harry Meeker, a big city lawyer, and his wife Ruth, have a car accident and end up seeking refuge in the little town of Downsville. When they try to leave the town, they find their every effort thwarted. What is the mystery this town is hiding? This falls into the category of "strange small town" stories (e.g. "Sleepy Village," "The Summer People," and "A Holiday Visit") and is fairly good, though the ending is a little too reminiscent of several Twilight Zone episodes. Genre: Mystery

Fantastic episode. 5 stars. Again, Mystery Theater kind of had me confused between reality or a dream. Great story and acting.
