A modern revival of the classic sci-fi horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, story from one episode continues in a later episode.
A continuation of the dramatic anthology series hosted by the master of suspense and mystery. When the series Alfred Hitchcock Presents was revived in 1962, the name was changed, but the format stayed fairly true to the original. In each episode, viewers would be strung along with the story, never knowing which way the final twist would turn. Written by

Walt Disney refused to allow Alfred Hitchcock to film at Disneyland in the early 1960s because Hitchcock had made "that disgusting movie Psycho (1960)". Hitchcock's intended project is unidentified at this time, but it may have been for an episode of his TV series. See more »
First of all, Alfred Hitchcock's introduction, station brake and wrap up monologues are worth the price of watching those commercials alone which regularly were humorously ridiculed by Hitchcock himself. Watching these shows these many years later is therapy for the lightening fast world of the 21st century. Lots of husbands killing wives and wives killing husbands. And of course, then, nobody could get away with anything if not in the story itself then in the ending wrap up by Hitchcock.
AND, it was an era when REAL ACTORS were on TV not the pretty face empty nothing's on TV today. Living in impossible apartments and working in impossible work places and performing impossible plots.
