Buffy in one word. John Rogers - a good writer who's worked on some bad movies - gives his one-word summary of Buffy's theme. It might be the opposite of yours.
...or it might be exactly the same as yours, what do I know? His answer is perfect in its way, but as he says, it may say as much about the viewer as the show. I couldn't do a one-word answer I was proud of, but I like Marti Noxon's slightly longer take: Buffy is about the burden of having extraordinary powers that no one else shares - in other words, it's Joss Whedon's creative autobiography. Interesting exercise, maybe?
