Can you get through this quiz without leaving The Twilight Zone?

Is your next stop The Twilight Zone?

While The Twilight Zone wasn't the first anthology series, it's certainly one of the greatest. Thought-provoking and creepy, since the series premiered in 1959, there have been dozens of anthology series that followed in its spooky footsteps. 

Let's see if you can get through this quiz without leaving the dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. We've supplied quick synopses of episodes from IMDb, and you have to guess if it's a Twilight Zone episode or the plot to another anthology series. Be careful, though! You'll quickly see how many modern shows and ones that pre-date The Twilight Zone sound just like it.
  1. On a peaceful suburban street, strange occurrences and mysterious people stoke the residents' paranoia to a disastrous intensity.
  2. After learning about a new service that lets people stay in touch with the deceased, a lonely, grieving woman reconnects with her late lover.
  3. The daughter of an inventor objects to their "perfect" home where they are waited on by mechanical servants.
  4. Following a mission to Venus, an astronaut finds himself constantly cold and has strange dreams about encountering an alien outside his spacecraft.
  5. Two jaded space tourism employees take up an elderly woman's request for a trip back to Earth - a planet which has lost all life due to a catastrophic "solar fire."
  6. When the Earth falls out of orbit, two women try to cope with increasingly oppressive heat in a nearly abandoned city.
  7. A lonely woman who waited years to marry the man she loves, finds out a horrible secret about why he stalled for so long.
  8. A reporter stumbles into a peaceful town where miracles seem to occur due to technology and the townsfolk won't let him leave.
  9. A computer technician begins to take advice for his love life from Agnes, the computer he works with.
  10. A cynical lawyer is hired by a young woman to prove that her uncle was not killed by his invention - a sophisticated robot.

Question #10, that's from the original Outer Limits, not One Step Beyond. I own both TV series on DVDs, I remember this one with Leonard Nimoy, Howard Da Silva

10/10.
Not the easiest.
10/10. It was easy, once you realize that the answers alternated I also did know the answers. If they "sounded" one way or the other, that also helped me to pick the right answer. Didn't METV do a similar quiz? "Can you answer the questions without leaving wherever." I want another TZ quiz, or was it TAGS?

9/10! Should have been perfect, but I have an excuse! Question 7 sorta sounds like "Young Man's Fancy", where a fiancΓ©e turns out to be too much of a "mama's boy". Also, except for the service reference, Question 2 could have been "Night Call"!

Yes, that question tripped me up as well.
That's true about #7, although I was familiar with the Hitchcock episode, so I got that one right. I also agree about #2, which was why I got that one wrong.
