Moments of brilliance: Buffy Summers was probably the most important, yet most underappreciated, character in recent TV history

All hail Buffy - she brought out the inner feminist in all of us 

It was violent. It was horrifying. It was funny. It was brilliantly written and yet it has been largely forgotten. Anyone who saw the 1992 movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer would have sniggered at the idea that such a throw-away flick, most notable for the sight of Donald Sutherland going through the motions while he waited for his cheque to clear, would spawn a TV show which would go on to become one of the most important pieces of television of its generation.
