All life lessons, all of human nature’s tricks and tragedies, are contained somewhere in Rod Serling’s slow, black-and-white, low-tech short plays. Also, many, many contemporary TV shows and movies have roots in “Zone” episodes. The annual marathon started on Monday, and it extends to 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Pictured: Serling.
