I believe "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" to be the finest television show of all time.
"Night Gallery," "Tales from the Crypt," "Twilight Zone" and "Ray Bradbury Theater" are superior products as well. Others worth noting are "Tales from the Darkside," "Thriller," and "The Hitchhiker." Hell, I even enjoyed NIckelodeon's "Are you Afraid of the Dark?" when I was a teenager.
Week to week, you were given a fresh cast of characters, a completely unpredictable storyline, and usually a noteworthy guest artist worth tuning in for. Often the best or most popular writers of the time would be invited to write an episode or two, so the storytelling would usually be very absorbing. In "Amazing Stories," Martin Scorsese was even asked to direct the superb episode called "Mirror, Mirror." In essence, these shows became cultural outposts for the country's most sought-after writers, directors and actors. And in all these shows you were sucked into strange and disquieting worlds for just 23 or so minutes, and it was as if you had just read an unforgettable short story.
Are there any good series on that I don't know about?
I'm not sure why, but I think it might have to do with the fact that celebrity has almost become a religion to a lot of people. They want to see their fave actor/singer every week, follow them on Twitter, mimmick their style, etc.
The alternative is the reality show, where people can become the celebrity themselves (or at least dream about how much better they would do than the contestants on the show).
Story telling and creativity took a back seat to marketing and packaging a long time ago.
