immortals (sci-fi TV Series)

After commercial successes like Highlander (hardly ever saw it) and more recently Angel (really good series, but sacked to make room for two concurrent Stargate series), there was again hope. Last fall saw the start of Moonlight (an immortal vampire) and New Amsterdam (some kind of immortal detective).

Moonlight is getting boring, it lacks an empiric background story arc, it lacks characters, it is too much "yet another dull detective show". But New Amsterdam is very promising...until Fox decided yesterday to not renew the series. Damn :(

So besides Battlestar Galactica, is there any other series us sci-fi geeks should be watching (and buying on dvd!) ?

(Please don't say Bionic Woman or Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles.)

I haven't heard of New Amsterdam, but if you think it's better than Moonlight I'll have to check it out ... I like Moonlight.

The BSG season is pissing me off. Seems like they're trying to pull a Lost on us. No answers. Just more questions. I hope they'll at least be answered ...
