Choose a side: Heroes vs Lost

Here is your chance to convince the me...Choose a Side.


Personally, I watched Lost from the first airing. It Lost me in season 3 when Ben shot John and then all of a sudden John was just fine. I know that the Island is supposed to be magical and have healing and hurting powers and Dharma was trying to figure out it all out to serve mankind.... But what started out as character development with awesome flashbacks to leak weekly the truth about the characters before they were stranded, quickly became a double dog dare to the writers to outdo themselves. Once the story transitioned from the people to the island, Lost Lost me.


Conversely, Heroes has been from the beginning all about the characters. But much more...Ordinary People with Extraordinary Powers. I totally could have been one of the Heroes who discovered a new power. So could you. And add in good vs evil where the same Ordinary people face off against a powerful syndicate of secretive men and women who hold our future in the balance. Who would think that these ordinary people would find a way to succeed. I always go for the underdog (The X-Files, Battlestar Gallactica)


Both Heroes and Lost have flash backs and forwards, capture glimpses of lives before and after their current circumstances play out, and hold each person responsible for their decision and the repercussions of those decisions. But where I think Lost fails us is the lack of hope.


At least I can buy in to the hope that Good will overcome Evil - And Heroes is all about that hope. I can't seem to find hope on Lost. Everyone wants off the island, and then once they are, they want back. They are miserable no matter where they go or what happens to them. And the worst part, some of them pick up where life left them unable to change. Good and Evil is convoluted on Lost...is Ben good or evil? What about Sawyer? It confuses the heck out of me...and Frankly, Lost lost my attention.


Lost has one more season under it's belt than Heroes, and honestly I think Heroes is at that crossroad where it either solidifies it's place among the great TV shows. And despite the reasons Lost has lost many viewers, it still retains a massive following. So perhaps, have missed the redeeming qualities that dedicated viewers see in the show. If that is the case, please tell me why should I start watching Lost again?

the cool part about Lost is that it is so dynamic. Heroes is entirely one-dimensional.

Heroes is my fave cause they focus on the connection between all the people with powers. Also its very ordinary people saving the world.
Plus you can miss an episode and only be a little confused but get it right away.

but i think that proves lost is better than heroes..lost is a complex show..it doesnt get boring because it continuously shocks the viewer with interesting revelations...it can only be a good thing that a show is unmissable...i suppose it depends how clever you want a show to be and i think lost's ability to create such elaborate episodes everytime make it much better than heroes

while both shows share some similarities, Meglomaniac is right, there still very different.
in Lost, the island has unexplainable powers, in Heroes the people have unexplainable powers.
However, I think both shows are unmissable, and very well thought out.

I don't see why we have to fight about this, there on at different times will just lke them both.
Go Heroes, its brought light to the other non believers of superheroes, where as lost has just confused allot of people and made them go, AHHHHH! i missed lost ... what happen Tommy, and Tommy would go ohhh god, and tell Jim and Jim then would rely on Tommy to tell him what he missed each week, till one day Tom snapped and broke Jim's neck, the end

HEROES....no if and's about it.
I'm a fan of lost and they do the same thing with cliff hanger endings but Heroes always does it in a smart why to ask more questions about the characters. They dont leave things to be answered 3 episodes later by showing another side of the island. If I didnt watch Lost on DVD I would be lost myself.

I'm unsure if it was mentioned yet, but Lost may seem a bit scientific and supernatural at times, but everything is explained eventually. John survived being shot by Ben because he was shot through his torso where the kidney rests, and due to being conned by his father, he had no organ to obstruct the bullet's travel path, allowing it to enter and exit without much damage, as explained in season 4.
Also, I think most people agree that season 4 was phenomenal and has tied up a lot of lingering questions as well as set the stage for some very intriguing episodes yet to come.
I enjoy heroes, but the whole Sylar thing is played out and he shouldn't have reacquired his powers... you can only watch the same villain for a season or two before he gets boring. I love the idea behind the show but you can clearly see they are making things up as they go along. Nikki's character wasn't well designed and that is why they eliminated her at the end of season 4. Same with Nathan, although I think he is and can be a better character if they decide to keep him alive.
Lost is going in new directions and still keeps you guessing and wondering what next... Heroes is turning into a predictable superhero show.

I've seen Lost from the start but some of my friends rubbished Lost and praised Heroes, so I really expected it to be something.Perhaps because it had already acquired some status in my mind, I was not exceedingly impressed, though I enjoy watching it.Heroes had the potential for more realism, since in theory it has a 'scientific' basis, and thus this could have been really something (i am a biochemistry graduate so get the genetics talk). Lost completely has a sci-fi element/unexplained mythos, but comes across as a show with more realism, despite the extraordinary phenomena. Heroes is in one sense another Smallville...whereas Lost is a weird version of a drama with more realistic characters.Having said that I actually believe Season 2 (seen up to ep 7 so far) is better than the first in many respects - e.g. character development and less of the patchy illogical science.

both shows are great .....but there diffrent ...i go for lost all the way ,,,i mean heroes is really nice and i love it but its the classic good vs evilbut lost on the other hand tells you that there isnt such a thing as good or bad ,,,each one of us if taken into a cirten situation hes going to act on his instenct regarding wether it was good or bad ,,,adn even bad people have stuff that they love and care about ,,, i dont think there is such a thing as totally bad / good person we all have a bad side and good side
adn its all explaind after in the show like Crazescape said
as for Ben i dont really know if hes good or bad ..casue he went nuts when the killed his doughter ,,dose that make him bad ,,
casue you might hate someone in the first few episodes but as they revil who this person really is and what made him do such things you might understand and change your mindthats what i think adn tahts why l.o.s.t is the best ,,,,,,,

I really never gave Lost a chance. It seemed way too slow paced and I betcha its not as fun as Gilligan's Island (rotflol). But Heroes is very cool and relates to SUPERHEROES. So of course I love the "Comic Book" styling rather than the "Oh, help me" Soap Opera styling. I hate soaps, except "House" reach really pulls away from it all.

Is House a soap opera? I don't think of it as one in the conventional sense. I mean it's certainly not daytime tv and I don't even think it's reminiscent of Desperate Housewives or Grey's Anatomy. This past season did feature Wilson and Amber in a romantic relationship, but the majority of the episodes stayed true to the House formula of a patient with an un-diagnosable ailment that is diagnosed at the last possible opportunity. Interesting topic, what's your argument?

In my opinion, maybe you SHOULDN'T watch Lost again. It's also my opinion that Lost is a MUCH better show than Heroes, though I love Heroes too. The way I see it, Heroes is much more of a spoon-feed the readers show. While there may be some mysteries in Heroes, everything is laid out in front of you fairly quickly after it's introduced.
Lost, on the other hand, has many dimensions, likened to a novel with intertwining plot-lines. The thing you need to realize is that in the end they will be brought together (hopefully beautifully), and hopefully leave a few things left to the imagination. The thing that's so great about Lost is that you can look as much or little into it as you wish and always get a lot out of the show. Granted, if you don't like mysteries and trying to figure things out, the show would be frustrating, but still somewhat entertaining. As for me, and the other loyal followers of Lost, we love the fact that we can sit around speculating and figuring out how things tie together and explanations for the mysteries of the island before they are revealed on the show. Nothing feels more fulfilling than having a theory about something in Lost and having it unfold exactly as you predicted on the show!
The reason I say maybe you shouldn't watch Lost again is because that's just how it is. It will remain a mystery, and though things will get solved and tied together finally, it will only bring up more questions (ie, what's inside the hatch.. we all know it was much more complicated than that now). If layers of mystery don't appeal to you, it wouldn't be worth your time to watch the show, cause that's what it's all about.

I will start by saying Stagmo could not be more rightHe has done some explaing for me.
I am a huge fan of X-Men so when I heard Heroes was coming out produced by Stan 'the man' Lee I was extremely excited. HUGE let down. People say that Lost is slower than Heroes? WRONG. Lost has more depth thats why it takes so long to answer questions and thats also why you cant miss an episode cause it moves quickly.Miss an episode of Heroes and what a surprise the show has moved no where and thats why you can get away with missing episodes.
I have respect for fans of Heroes, but when you even compare Heroes to LOST...no match LOST is better by a long shot

i've never watched lost and the few episodes i have seen even from the start i have found to be very uninteresting. All the friends I have that are lost fans complain about the fact that nothing is ever revealed and the plot drags on.Heroes is wonderfully scripted and every childs comic book dream fully realised, every episode of Heroes has been fully rellished and devoured by me like an expensive meal. Heroes is in a class of its own.

Lost for sure. Lost is great and im thrill to watch it every week and will start downloading as soon it is available. Lost will make me flipping back other episodes to investigate and having theory. solving the mystery and jaw dropping cliff hanger.
At first I kinda like heroes. how thy are connected all over the world and met in one place, then it got boring with virus stuff and now everyone can be heal and realive with the blood.
I dont mind watch heroes if I have a time in the world I dont care and I dont have to do anything. I dont care if I missed a episode or season, but Lost will make me eager waiting for new episodes, download it and watched again and again.

Heroes and Lost are two very different shows. I can't tell you why should start watching Lost again, because frankly, I don't care what you watch and I'm not gonna spend time telling you what to do. The good thing about Lost, is that it has an end. 34 more episodes and the show is done! Not that I'm looking forward to the end of Lost, it has been a great show, but I know a lot of shows that continued for years without any point or reason. Heroes doesn't have an end date, and I hope that that won't come anytime soon, so Heroes could be one of the shows that keeps dragging on, pointlessly and then it starts to get boring.
Nahahaa, after talking about something that is completely irrelevant. Lost and Heroes are two very different shows.

lost will have only six seasons to watch and we all know we'll get our answers in the end, yeah it's confusing now thats why lost must be watched from beggining to end, if your not gonna watch till the end you shouldn't have started watching it in the first place. you've opened pandoras box now figure out how to close it by watching the rest.heroes on the other hand has a really boring storyline compared to the backbone of lost (which we don't know about just yet, but its coming, you can feel it) thinking about heroes, it just feels like theres no end to it and in a way they can keep going and going and then going into new generations and then the next thing you know, were watching repeats of the show with different characters. i really don't want that to happen.my point in the end is heroes needs a good solid backbone storyline with a beggining, a few main confusing parts and an end and state how many episodes/seasons there will be so we can actually think this will be the best show ever, otherwise it's just gonna be a bunch of people who think they're heroes just because someone can fly, bend time and space, walk through walls etc. and stop someone who's trying to stop them for their own needs. every marvel comic says the same thing as heroes does and its too predictable and gets quite boring.

lost is fantastic and incredible...its twist and suprises are unbelivable..who would imagine an island can be moved,,,but i think that's not impossible cause the island has its magic whatever..
heroes is great too,..i love milo(peter) a lot..his acting is superb and i love his powers.and the others powers were like incredible..some of them can be developed..its like x-men but in a better way..
i think what these 2 have the same..is there villains and twist are all the same..as for season 1-4 (lost) and season 1-2 (heroes)..their story plots are revolving in a good way..
so i vote for the both of them.

to what dexdes said, u can't base the quality of a show on how complex it is. there's a difference between challenging a viewer to highten their initiative and work heir brain but it's another to purposefully try to confuse them or the even worse bi-polar outcome; not even realise how much you baffle the audience.
To think that the story was basically over from last season but to carry on 4 another TWO seasons, which is obviously just a scam to make more money off the Lost junkies (i have no problem with trying to make money, but disagree when the methods are CHEAP) is upsetting.
there's also a sense of arrogance from the writers...i mean, 16 episode seasons, starting mid-way through prime tv show season (Jan) i dunno, i like Lost for it's ideas and passion, just don't think they're doing it for the right reasons anymore

The only big thing i hear about heros that every1s connected but its the same thing for lost. With either jack and claire beign related (sry if i runied that for ppl) plus saywer and john sharing a dick of a daddy there are webs of confusion and knives constantly cutting through them, it a show that has made me say around 50 times omg...WTF just happend!?

The acting on Heroes is a joke compared to Lost. The plot on Lost is a lot more intelligent than Heroes. To be quite hones, Heroes is for people with less time on their hands, while Lost is more for serious and casual viewers. Lets say this.. If you want answers to be right in front of you and intense action, then yeah, go for Heroes. If you want character driven, well-written plots, great acting, and intense action, then go for Lost. Unlike Heroes, whenever Lost answers your question, they don't just put it right in front of you, they just show it before the viewers notice it. So yes, Lost do answer question, only in a more intelligent way unlike Peter Petrelli finding something out of his rectum. As for character development, Ben Linus would run circles around Sylar. That's how much of a villain Ben Linus is compared to Sylar. Sylar is just some retard villain with no character development what-so-ever. So yeah, Sylar has a long way before he can be as bad ass as Ben Linus which I don't think will ever happen.
What gets me about Heroes is the fact that it's very predictable and one-dimensional. It's all about good guys vs. bad guys with superpowers and evolution. How original. The reason why you could miss several episode of Heroes and not get lost is because the show is entirely one dimensional. There's nothing to miss on Heroes. With Lost, on the other hand.. Since there are many mysteries revolving around the show, yeah, you won't understand what the hell is going on if you miss several episodes. But the point of Lost is that you have to watch the whole episode to understand the plot and not get "lost". Lost also revolves around various mysteries and other elements from flashbacks, flashforwards, the mysteries and science that revolves the island, the characters, Others, Desmond's psychic powers, all these weird people like Ms. Hawking or Abbadon, Ben Linus, Jacob, time travel, etc. All these concepts are far more interesting than the Heroes plot about good guys vs. bad guys with super powers and evolution. And you don't even know what the hell is going to happen with Lost. With Lost it's more like "OMG, did that just happened?!", while in Heroes, it's more like "Surprise, surprise".
And yeah, I could really care less if you watch Lost or not. If you really want shows to put up answers right in front of your face and a lot less time on your hands, then yeah don't watch Lost at all, because that's just not the way Lost is written.

You guys can talk about it day and night but Lost will Win at the end.
Lost is Awesome, Heroes is not.

Oh and lets not forget that the 2 Heroes finale was absolute trash. Every Lost season finale was freaking epic.
