I suspect that BtVS was and will remain unique. It's hard to duplicate the combination of factors which led to its success: humor, drama, depth, acting, coincidence with the rise of the internet, and others. BtVS clearly influenced other shows -- Veronica Mars being an obvious example -- and some of them capture part of what BtVS special, but none of them can match it overall. Another show may someday, but it's likely that, as Buffy said, "it will be years, if ever".

If you miss the ongoing discussion, you might be interested in this thread: http://www.smgboard.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=19391&st=0. It starts with S2 (other threads deal with S1 and some overall themes; you can find them easily from the main page) and they are now up to Gone. It should keep you busy for a while -- they're on p. 102.
