Same. I don't see Alyson as cocky or anything either, I've seen two of the movies, and a few HIMYM episodes. I've seen all of Buffy and the spin-off show Angel (she's in a few episodes on his show too).
As she progresses through the show she starts off as a shy nerd, but is able to stand up for herself as the show goes on. You probably won't like her in Buffy Season 6 but that's because of what Willow does and the thin metaphor they use for her arc most of the season. Magic Powers=Drug Abuse.
If you want a good episode to see how the show in general, by being unique funny and scary I suggest Season 4, episode 10 "Hush" It's not the best Willow episode, but the main story is not hers, and the gist of how Willow acts there is how she is by that point in the show, she's not as shy after 4 years.
Also if you do get into the show remember Season 1 looks cheesy now because it came out in 1997, was a mid-season replacement show so it only had 12 episodes and not the best budget ever. The other 6 Buffy seasons are all 22 episodes.
Also watch Angel's spin-off show that starts the same time as Buffy Season 4. It has 5 seasons, all 22 episodes. Angel Season 5 is after Buffy ended. Angel Season 1 isn't so great but it does have some gems and improves in Season 2.
