'Heroes' To Return, But What Went Wrong With The First Run?


Hayden Panettiere Masi Oka

The first season of Heroes was undeniably gripping. The show quickly gained a loyal following and no one could argue that the end of each episode left you on tenterhooks, itching for just a little bit more information to try and work out what the hell was going on.

That’s why it was even more of a letdown when over the following seasons it became apparent that the writers had absolutely no idea what the show was meant to be, or where it was heading.

Meanwhile, they get increasingly involved in each others' lives, most notably as Dylan and his sister (Elfman) cope with their senile father (Jenkins). Of course, the main question is whether Dylan and Jamie can remain friends even if they have sex.
