Best vampire TV series: 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' or 'True Blood'?

You can't discuss vampire classics without mentioning "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "True Blood." Buffy (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar) stole our hearts as the kick-ass demon and vampire slayer. She was definitely a teen shero. Years later, we were introduced to another shero, Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin). Sookie used her telepathic senses and southern charm to maneuver herself out of many situations in her vampire town. Which show is your favorite?

Below is the synopsis of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," per Rotten Tomatoes.

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. The show gave us a feminist icon, changed the dynamics among characters and put The WB on the map. 

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.

Below is the synopsis of "True Blood," per Rotten Tomatoes.

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.
