A cheerleader is chosen to battle the forces of evil as she weathers the storms of young adulthood in an imaginative series that blends killer writing and performances. The show put WB on the ratings map and spawned the successful `Angel' before moving to UPN in 2001. Series creator Joss Whedon introduced the character in a 1992 film that had Kristy Swanson in the Slayer role.
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was on the air from 1997-2003 and holds a fresh rating of 81 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Todd VanDerWerff and Caroline Framke of Vox credited "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" with transforming TV as we know it.

When The WB debuted a low-budget comedy about a teen girl vampire slayer in the spring of 1997, no one expected it to make much of an impression — let alone become a bona fide pop culture force. But since the launch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer 20 years ago, TV has never been quite the same.
HBO's hit drama series created by Alan Ball ('Six Feet Under') and based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris about a perky telepathic waitress (Anna Paquin) in a near-future in which vampires live among us.
The show aired on HBO between 2008-2014 and holds a fresh rating of 68 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. But fans are still upset about the way the show ended. Afiya Augustine of Syfy Wire wrote:
This show had all the makings of remaining a huge hit even after it departed in the way Buffy remains a cult classic for 90s kids. Instead, True Blood will probably become that show you remember for it's once great potential that greatly lost its way.
