20 Early ’00s TV Shows That Were Way Ahead Of Their Time
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Like Veronica Mars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer also had an absolute KILLER female lead. The show began in 1997, entering the noughties in the middle of its fourth season. Before ending in 2003, Buffy dominated TVs all across America with her dramatic love life and battles against the forces of darkness. The show followed Buffy as she moved through school and college, frequently using paranormal issues as analogies for things actual young adults deal with regularly like coming to terms with your sexuality, patriarchy, and drug abuse. The main characters of the show were smart, witty, and strong women which is exactly how we like our leads!
