Buffy Has The Stake Through Her Heart

I'd rather have a show that 100 people need to see than a thousand people like to see," says Joss Whedon, executive producer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Sharply imagined and creatively realized, filled with humor, drama, wit, action and horror, Buffy the Vampire Slayer drew a consistent, ardent audience to television every week, even if it never brought Nielsen to its knees. The show, which ends its seven-season run after two more episodes -- tonight and May 20 -- was never more than a cult hit and media darling. Mass audiences eluded it.

"We do not destroy the entire fabric of the universe at the end of the last episode," he said. "Some people even live, so there's definitely an open door."
