An American anthology show from the early 60s. The stories all had science fiction-y premises, and many had a twist ending. It was so popular that it entered American pop culture and has been parodied or homaged approximately 482304 times.
The most well known story, which was called Time Enough At Last, was about an man who liked to read but never had the time. After becoming the last survivor of a nuclear holocaust, he had plenty of time to read without being disturbed, until his glasses fell off.
My favourite is the one where the Earth was spiralling into the sun, but in the end it turns out to be the main character's nightmare; the Earth is really moving away from the sun. I probably liked it because I like apocalypses and I was currently in the middle of a heatwave.
