I'd say that the original Twilight Zone was a big  influence, as was the
Outer Limits, the Prisoner, Blake's 7, and the original Trek.  The writers
most influential were Serling, Chayefsky, Reginald Rose, Matheson,
Bradbury, Ellison.

Only saw Picket Fences of those three, which I enjoyed, though it got
kinda wonky in its last season or two.
