I don't know if there even are 100 anthology series but I do know there have been quite a few over the years. Why not give it a try as I'm a fan of these and I might even learn of a few I forgot or never knew about.

I'll start it with the obvious:

1) The Twilight Zone (1959-1964): perhaps the greatest anthology series of them all with superb writing, great acting and unforgettable twists and turns, exploring those places perhaps inside us all but rarely explored.

There are a good number of horror-based anthology shows from the 80's and 90's. I'll mention this one which will certainly prompt a few more entries.

Am I allowed to post multiple shows, or is it one entry per post? I've got a handful I just thought of.

A few anthology series weren't horror/fantasy/sci-fi themed.

I was going to post Love American Style. Good call.

How about the pre-cursor to the aforementioned Tales from the Darkside:

Always loved to watch this as a kid on the local fox channel. Heard they're remaking it and it will air on cinemax.

Great minds and all.  TeddyR

The theme in that clip is slightly different than I remember it. Maybe a different arrangement was used for the syndicated episodes, which is where I saw it.

Hre's the version I grew up with:

This was  one of the first (or maybe THE first) show our mom was uncomfortable with us watching. Later forbidden shows included All in the Family, Maude, Soap, and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.
