Although the "Immortals" in 'Highlander' aren't really immortal, they can be beheaded by other immortals who are constantly hunting them, which effectively negates any alleged effect on the dramatic stakes. Also outside of the threat, or lack thereof to the life of our hero Connor, there is the threat that the evil Kurgan could win "the prize". So yeah, you can have "immortal" characters and still have tension if you tweak a couple of other plot elements.
