Following the news that the unloved superhero drama is making a return to our screens, we imagine how some other shows, such as Lost and FlashForward, could be brought back to life

Spoiler alert: this blog discusses key plot points from past series, including Lost, FlashForward and Dexter.

Taken on its own, the news that NBC plans to revive Heroes – the superhero series that died unloved of its own stupidity in 2010 – is fully inexplicable. The series blew through whatever scant promise it had in the space of a single series, only to limp on so doggedly for so long afterwards that nobody can realistically ever want to see it again.

However, taken in the context of the upcoming 24 revival, the news is ever so slightly worrying. Television's big new thing, it seems, is to take shows from a decade ago and jerk them back into life by whatever means necessary. »
