Buffy The Vampire Slayer Fans just can't get enough of vampires. Today it's "Twilight," but not too long ago it was "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," which tops a new magazine list of the 25 Best Cult TV Shows from the past 25 years.
The Joss Whedon-helmed series ran for 144 episodes between March 1997 and May 2003, and is number one on Entertainment Weekly's new poll. The show was a mixture of drama, comedy, romance, action, and horror.
"Buffy" centered on the exploits of its titular vampire slayer, a mystical "Chosen One" living in Sunnydale, Calif., an idyllic small town situated atop the mouth to hell. Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) was plucked from a life of cheerleading and parties and forced by her mystic destiny to slay vampires and vanquish demons.

Coming in second place on EW's list is the short-lived "Arrested Development" followed by "Mystery Science Theater 3000" in the third slot.

Other cult favorites on the list include: The X-Files, The Wire, Lost, Firefly, My So-Called Life, Supernatural, Community, Archer, and Battlestar Galactica.
