    I suppose I could classify every Zone episode as 'alternate reality'. I can't quite understand though why Devil's Alphabet earns such a poor overall rating as I remember enjoying this particular tale at the time and enjoy watching it still today. The story is a simple one that benefits from outstanding set design and costume. It's a bit of an anomaly, I suppose, since there's no surprise ending, and no real moral lesson to be learned, but I find it to be a visual treat. This short story is a perfect example of what was possible when the Twilight Zone had the budget to produce something fun.
