Last week, I discovered that I now have access (legally) to the 1960s series of The Twilight Zone, just in time for this "Halloween month". Unwilling to watch all 5 seasons, I looked online for the "best 10 episodes". Doing so was problematic, and risky for those like me that are new to the series.
First, there are 156 episodes, so it isn't likely that you'll get a good consensus on what is the best ten. The IMDB episode ratings may be the closest thing to a consensus, but it's unlikely that everybody that rated episodes watched the full series. Looking at individual top-10 lists, personal preference in the kind of episode they prefer also creates a bias.
Second, though it's not that much of a big problem, is that most of those top-10 lists mention only the episode titles, not their number (season and episode-of-season number). I don't want to scan through the full 156 episode list to find a matching title each time I want to watch an episode.
Finally, and the biggest issue, is that most of those lists not only list the episode titles, but also a description of what happened in the episode, and sometimes even a screenshot of the episode that spoils the whole twist.
So I went through ten of those lists, giving more weight to the IMDB one, and here's the result. No spoilers, just the title and episode numbers.
Notice that none on these are part of season 4, which had hour-long episodes rather than 30 minutes.
Also, a few honourable mentions that showed up high enough is many lists.
