In Every Generation, There Is a Chosen One…
In 1997, the world was re-introduced to Buffy Summers, and we have never been the same.
Sure, we’d already seen some women kicking monster butt in the past (think Sigourney Weaver in Alien or even Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween), but Buffy the Vampire Slayer departed from the final girl trope in horror and perfectly embraced the girl power movement of the ’90s.
Hailed as one of the best TV series of all time, Buffy was a genre-bender that included a little bit of everything for fans, from drama and comedy to the supernatural and even martial arts. This unique intersection, led by Sarah Michelle Gellar and a strong supporting cast, helped make the show among the most popular on TV for its six seasons, and it still holds a special place in pop culture today.
Were you a Buffy fan? Think you know everything there is to know about the show? Beg to differ!
