The show is not so much about a girl fighting vampires as it is about female empowerment and christianity bashing.
Had an inventive dialogue which, to me, made it fun to watch even though I'm a christian and many villains are symbols of organised religion, such as priests.
The only thing I don't really like is the character Angel, who doesn't develop a well-rounded personality until three seasons in and then disappears from the show into the spin-off "Angel" where he quickly loses said personality and becomes a stereotype superhero á la Swartzenegger.

Sam: I was watching the season finally of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season three!
Shannon: OMG! I LOVE Buffy!!! Especially the quotes like:
Cordelia: I personally don’t think it’s possible to come up with a crazier plan.
Oz: We attack the Mayor with humus.
Cordelia: I stand corrected.
Oz: Just keeping things in perspective.
Cordelia: Thank you.
Sam: Yeah! And:
BUFFY: I haven't processed everything yet. My brain isn't really functioning on the higher levels. It's pretty much: fire bad; tree pretty.
GILES: Understandable. Well, when it's working again congratulate it on a good campaign. You did very well.
BUFFY: Thank you. I will.
GILES: I ah- I managed to ferret this out of the wreckage. Now, it may not interest you, but- (reaches into his jacket and pulls out a high school diploma) I'd say you earned it. (looking around) There is a certain dramatic irony that's attached to all this. A Synchronicity that borders on- on predestination, one might say.
BUFFY: Fire bad; tree pretty.
Shannon: Yeah, awesome show
