Sarah Michelle Gellar isn't really anything... honestly, who cares? having loved the series for a long time now, and having revisited it multiple times, SMG is a weak link in a sort, but, frankly, she plays the part rather effectively (as a whole). the series is exceedingly weak in its earliest seasons, and, in a nice twist, the strength of the later seasons practically depend on the character histories established earlier on. but, if one comes in with an open mind and a deal of patience, one, i believe, will be greatly rewarded. because, buffy is a very fun, very funny, very smart, and very engaging story, with big ideas and big characters.
if i remember correctly, you're the one shitting bricks over dr. horrible? dude, it's the same fucking thing. joss whedon has a fairly distinct style, especially in his dialogue & characterization, and, honestly, if you love dr. horrible as much as you seem to, you'll love buffy too. and if you're thinking, wait wait... but buffy never sings, etc. etc. sixth season, ONCE MORE WITH FEELING, the whole buffy cast is thrown into a supernatural musical. trust me, if you push through those first few seasons (the first is fairly short too), you would be in store for a really really great time.
i would give it another chance, dude.

of course there are worse shows on tv, i was just being hyperbolic... but, my mom likes friends.
p.s. i'll be there for you.

oh, definitely. season seven is probably my favorite though. Angel season five... holy shit. ahhah.
