Because I list several episodes of 'The Twilight Zone' into certain categories, I should point out:


Most of the episodes from 'The Twilight Zone' take place on Earth Prime-Time, Past ("Mr. Denton On Doomsday"), Present ("What You Need"), or Future ("The Trade-Ins") or some combination of the three ("A Hundred Yards Over The Rim", "The Rip Van Winkle Caper", "Once Upon A Time", "Back There").

Other stories take place on other planets ("Elegy", "Eye Of The Beholder", "People Are Alike All Over", "Number Twelve Looks Just Like You" - which takes place on Mondas). Some take place in the After-Life ("The Hunt", "The Passersby", "A Nice Place To Visit") and many of the rest take place in alternate TV dimensions ("The Midnight Sun", "The Parallel", "A World Of Difference").

I bring this up because it's time to once again dip into the files of Della Street.....

Oh, and there'll be more SPOILERS AHEAD as well.......


When Amy Jo Jennings nearly threw away her inheritance at a chance for stardom, the only one who was looking out for her was Jazbo Williams, the owner of a small club in Los Angeles and like Amy Jo, a frustrated singer-songwriter. Such concern paid off by the end - it looked like Jazbo was going to return to Amy Jo's hometown and write jingles for her family company. And although he might not have been ready to admit it in public, it looked like he would be marrying the Home Remedy heiress as well.

So everything worked out pretty sweetly for Jazbo Williams... in Earth Prime-Time.

But it appears that Jazbo had a doppelganger in an alternate TV dimension who couldn't escape his destiny as it played out in a folk song......

Over in the Evil Toobworld, it looks like Jazbo's real first name could have been Floyd. But his birth parents died when he was an infant and so he was adopted and raised by relatives who gave him a new last name - Burney. Like his counterpart in the main Toobworld, Floyd Burney became a folksinger, but with a small amount of fame as "The Rock-A-Billy Kid".

Floyd Burney visited some backwoods area in search of a new song to record and unfortunately for him he found it in "Come Wander With Me". Soon, he found his life echoing the events described in the song and he paid dearly for the musical discovery.
