I'm kind of cranky with Matt Zoller Seitz because I don't care for his Mad Men reviews- pretentious and wrong-headed. However, I do agree with the thesis statement behind this article- BTVS is profoundly underrated precisely because of his abilities to cross-genres and even contradict how it crosses genre.

Albeit, it's a long way to describe BtVS as I do by borrowing one of its quotes- "Fly free little bird. You defy category." But then, I'm also someone who uses ten words when four will do.

Look, FNL is a good show. It's well-acted and well-written. But wow, not even in the same universe as BtVS in terms of scope and complexity and character exploration and development.
