As the title says, what is your favourite episode of shows like The Twilight Zone or Outer Limits?

For me, I am going to go with an episode of Night Gallery, called 'The Caterpillar', although there is no caterpillar involved in the episode. It does feature an earwig though. I can't really talk about what happens or why I like it without giving major spoilers, but suffice to say to this day I still have a kill-on-sight attitude towards this one particular species as a result.

Tales from the Dark Side: Trick or Treat. An old miser who holds sway over the lives of most of those living in a town constructs a haunted house each Halloween wherein he hides mortgages from local families with the deal being if the kids find the mortgages, they'll be free of them. No kid ever has found these, and the miser likes terrifying the children every year. Not only is it a cool haunted house but it's nice to see how it turns out.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
