Which TV show’s writing room do you wish you could have been a part of and why?

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was the first time I ever saw a show that was funny, dramatic, supernatural and scary, but grounded in truth and reality. Plus, it turned female gender tropes on its head. Pretty earth-shattering for an eight-year-old."
