Of course Buffy deserves the praise, but I take issues with some of the claims made in the article for what BTVS "has given the world of entertainment":
Buffy successfully put a woman at the centre of the series,
Jamie Summers, Diana Prince, 1970s.
Standalone storylines with an ongoing narrative leading up to an end of series 'Big Bad'.
Babylon 5, 1990s.
Whip-smart dialogue filled with great pop culture references.
Er, no, I'm pretty sure this is the other way round.
