This week’s question: What’s your favorite anthology series of all time? Why?

I have to go with the original “Twilight Zone,” because it is astonishing what the show was able to do. One of the beautiful things about television is following characters on an extended journey, but most of the best episodes of “Twilight” were wrapped up in under 30 minutes. That’s a plot/character/world introduction, story, and a twist/resolution in about half the length of a 2019 premium drama episode.
It also remains the only show I’m content to watch out of order (a normal no-no for me), and the only series I try to not seek out via streaming services. I tend to get sucked into the holiday Syfy marathons,
