I take it you need something.
Your doctor friend.

An interesting and intelligent twist on the vampire myth
I really like this show. I started watching it on late night TV back when it was originally on (we picked up locally after Letterman) and found myself hooked. Me and my old man would sit up and enjoy this rich and involving tale of one 'man's' search for redemption. There were very few uninteresting episodes (most were in the first season) and the acting and scripts done so seriously and so intelligently that one really could not help but respect the work that went into them.
The show ended on the perfect note and the last season built steadily to that point. There was never a loose thread, never a mis-step, just one enjoyable episode after another that added up to a fantastic viewing experience. If more TV could be this good, I would probably still watch it.
