In the first episode, the Sterling family (Hal, June, Trace, Gina, Smith) take a tour of the interior of the Great Pyramid of Giza at the same time as a once-in-ten-thousand-years conjunction of the planets. Inside, they are abandoned by their guide, and as they try to get out, they are mysteriously transported to another planet which may or may not be in a parallel universe.
On this other planet, (called 'Thel') which is inhabited by humans, there are no familiar countries or states. The area they are in is divided up into self-contained "Zones," each with a wildly different style of government and way of life, although the province of "Imar" (ruled by a Praetor) appears to be the central seat of government for this entire Earth. Most of Thel's history is not revealed, although the pilot episode contains references to 'territories', android creators, and 'wars of unification'. It is thus unknown whether Thel is an alternate universe version of Earth, or another planet entirely.

It's funny... I've been watching the Original Series of The Twilight Zone recently (still working my way through) and it doesn't look too dated... the stories mostly hold up, the music is fine. But watching that youtube intro of this show... it sounds and looks awful, so dated. (I mean the intro looks sounds awful, I'm sure the show is great) There's something about stuff done in the 70's and 80's and actually even early 90's that makes them appear so much more dated and cheesy than some of the much older shows. Weird.

Rod Serling was the man. The Twilight Zone is one of those shows that stands the test of time, a testament to this is the fact my 15 year old son loves the show after I turned him onto it. I'm amazed that a show that's filmed in black & white that first aired in 1959 manages to hold a 21st century teenagers attention. That alone speaks for itself. One of the best shows ever created hands down.
