I'd say it went down hill starting with the first year's finale. Which rather nicely exemplifies what was fundamentally wrong with it: great build-up, but they had no idea where to go with it.
One of the actors from Heroes who had a recurring role one season talked about how the storylines never had a second or third act. They'd do the first act, then repeat the first act, then repeat the first act again.

I've never seen a show with more frequent fucking around with the continuity. It made each episode completely lack consequence as anything could be reset.
I had the same issue with FlashForward. Half the time we're told the flash forward was pre-destined and couldn't be changed, the other half we're told it could.

Re: "Heroes" could be uncancelled.

IMO the first season was very good. The rest not so much (and going to the 'precognition/must CHANGE the future outcome' trope too many times for my tastes in the long run.) The Writers strike at the time didn't help either.

But yeah, if it's with the same creators/writing staff - meh.

Re: "Heroes" could be uncancelled.

I just finished a watch-through of the entire series with my GF and I think it was actually a lot better than I remembered it being. It seems to work better in marathon format, maybe because there's not as much time to dwell on the plot holes.

I'd be curious to see a revival but if it's an all-new cast like the story I read suggests, who knows if it'd be any good.

Re: "Heroes" could be uncancelled.

I wouldn't mind watching a revival of Heroes. I loved the first season, which I have on DVD, but is XBox Live really a viable outlet for a series? Netflix is one thing, but are there enough people out there with XBoxes for this to work? I know I sure won't go out and buy one just to watch a TV show.

They have the Halo series coming and want to expand.

If this show ever comes back, Zachery Quinto will no doubt be grateful that he's no longer under contract. They kept him chained to that show for it's entire run.

Re: "Heroes" could be uncancelled.

Just reboot to the end of the first season but they fail and almost everyone dies.

Then pick up a few years later with a mostly new cast.

Get to keep the title and premise, any characters you like/can get back, but essentially get a fresh start.

I never found the mythology of the show very interesting though personally, especially when everyone turned out to be related. Gave up on the show around that point.
