This is "The Cold Equations", an episode of The Twilight Zone that was the 16th episode of the 3rd season of the 1980s incarnation of the series. The episode is an adaptation of a rather famous 1954 short story of the same name by Tom Godwin. Thomas Barton is an astronaut who must deliver a vital cargo of vaccine to a plague-stricken colony world....

Neither one--rather, it was Night Gallery (a later show by Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling), the episode "The Different Ones" (1971). Plot synopsis here: Paul Koch (Dana Andrews, too stiff and too old-looking for this role) is at his wits’ end trying to figure out what the best plan of action is for his son Victor (Jon Korkes), who suffers from ...

This was from The Twilight Zone, the series that started in 1985. The episode was A Small Talent For War, aired in January 1986, and is one of my favorites. From the plot synopsis on Wikipedia (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Small_Talent_for_War): An ambassador (John Glover) from an alien race arrives, claiming that his race had genetically engineered ...

The story you're describing is "The Martian" from Ray Bradbury's short story collection "The Martian Chronicles". There have been at least two adaptations; The 1980 TV mini-series (described below) and an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theater" from 1992. It is some years since the original expedition to the Red Planet ended in tragedy. Colonists from Earth ...

You seem to be describing an Outer Limits episode (s04e20, 1998) called "The Nightmare". Per IMDb: "Capt. Roger Kimbro leads the starship Archipelago and it's crew on a mission to a distant planet. They are there to plant a device on the planet but before they can complete the mission, they're attacked. The planet was supposed to be uninhabited but ...

There is a Twilight Zone Episode (from the somewhat obscure 1985 remake) that contains elements of your question. Though I do not remember the term "Time People" they do reference losing keys, time travel and strange, faceless workers that might be mistaken for gremlins. Not holding out a lot of hope this is the answer, but the link goes to the relevant ...

Minus the part about the alien taking blood, this sounds a bit like the Twilight Zone episode "The Gift" (1962). In it, it's a boy, not a girl that befriends an alien. People from the boy's village kill the alien, only to find out that he was on Earth to

I believe you are looking for The Outer Limits episode "Bits of Love". Don't remember which was it from, but I recall seeing an episode about a scientist who was the last survivor on Earth The last man on Earth living in an underground bunker and designed a robot to serve him, he's a like a butler. All is good, but the master/scientist is still not ...

This could an episode of a 2002 TV series called 'Night Visions' titled 'Patterns'. Malcolm McDowell plays a shrink who counsels a man who believes that the whole universe will end if he stops performing little personal rituals every day. The doctor talks him out of it and reality immediately begins to come apart, forcing the doctor to start performing the ...

- A matter of minutes. When this happens to us we blame "the time guys".

After searching far and wide I've actually found the closest match to my description. It's Stephen King's Tommyknockers movie. The plot is in no way similar to what i've described (I probably combined elements from many SF series and movies of the time), but the scene with the mind controlled spaceship being destroyed most likely is what I remember.
