Most badass TV blonde: 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' or 'Veronica Mars'?

Blonde, bold, brainy and bad-ass. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fights the supernatural with fists and stakes. Private investigator "Veronica Mars" fights demons too, but hers are internal. Both are resourceful characters, full of witty comebacks and make for damn good television. Okay, Scoobies and Marshmallows, which show is best?

Beyond being young women with dangerous hobbies, the Buffy/Veronica parallels are many. Both have one good parent and one absentee parent, rely on great friends, make questionable romantic choices and are whip-smart with repartee. Each show gained dedicated followings through bright performances and solid storytelling. 

There’s a cast overlap too, as both shows featured Charisma Carpenter and Allison Hannegan in supporting roles. Buffy creator Joss Whedon even did a cameo on Veronica Mars. So which show is the best?

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" began as a film, came back to life as a television show that ran for seven seasons, and continued as a comic book. Sarah Michelle Geller brings a human credibility to the supernatural show. 

Funny, romantic, heartbreaking and creepy, in many cases, the plots are supernatural versions of everyday high school evil. The dialogue is idiosyncratic but fun and believable. Certain episodes, such as the Emmy-nominated "Hush," rank among the best TV has ever offered.

Some great lines from Buffy.

Buffy > Veronica for LGBT representation.

#TeamVeronicaMars

"Veronica Mars" started out as a show, came back for a movie and a couple books, and is now poised to return to the small screen for new episodes on Hulu

Kristen Bell perfectly balances wisecracks, hardboiled detective sensibility and the vulnerability of someone fighting to overcome personal trauma. What Buffy has in speed and super-powered strength, Veronica more than makes up for in observation, determination, and courage. 

#TeamVeronicaMars

No shortage of great dialogue here either!
