Greatest TV Pilots – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

When it comes to a modern evolution of vampires in popular culture, it all started with a blond girl arriving in a seemingly boring town, destined to fight the forces of evil while surviving the troubles of high school.
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer began as an usurpation of the classic tale of monsters chasing young blonde women – only this time, she chased them. However, the show’s success was never certain; the original 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry was met with mixed reviews (but has since gained a cult following) and five years later, its scriptwriter Joss Whedon reviewed and revived Ms Summers back into the world of the undead.
