Lost, Heroes never recovered the awesomeness of the first series whereas Lost has just satisfied me constantly, ok except maybe the season with all the writers strikes and less episodes.
I wasn't a fan of lost until season 4 was on TV, my tv package at home was offering all 3 prior seasons to watch for free on their on demand part, so I did a marathon session in which I actually neglected to sleep a few nights because I was so hooked.
I'd say Lost for me. I tried to get into Heroes because a lot of my friends kept going on and on about it, and while it wasn't terrible, I just got tired of it. I've been hooked on Lost since the first season and I can't wait until it comes back this year!
Well, I liked both series in the beginning, but around 3rd season both series had gotten so messy that it got uninteresting. There were like a million open plot lines, half of which had been forgotten by the writers, and the the rest were probably going to be forgotten just as well. I felt like there was 25 writers, each writing their own masterpiece, and in the end the producer would choose one plot line to follow for each episode at random.
That's my general consensus on them too. They're too convoluted and where the creativity was nice to spark them, launch them... it wasn't enough to sustain them and give any really fascinating answers that would make it worthwhile. Trying to follow either of them now when I happen to come across an episode by accident aggrivates the sh*t out of me trying to understand what is going on.

With most it isn't quite so bad... but with these two series in particular it seems as if once you miss one episode, you may as well quit.
