    I am not in any way saying that genre cannot be prestige, just arguing that Buffy was not particularly influential (sadly) and that was because it was on a peripheral network that had very limited spread (we couldn't get it where I live, for example, even on cable -- in contrast, we have always had AMC since its inception, back when it actually showed classic movies!).  

    I would say that Star Trek, for example, was influential for when it was,  And that is certainly a genre show.  But I am afraid I skipped over the idea of prestige being her term, not yours.  My apologies.
