'Heroes' is returning: 7 other shows NBC should bring back from the dead

After the surprising news that "Heroes" will be coming back with a 13-episode event series titled "Heroes Reborn," it's game on for bringing shows back from the dead. After all, does anyone remember what "Heroes" was like toward the end of its original run? Not exactly something you'd be itching to see brought back to life.

With that in mind, here are five shows we would love to see revived and given a bit of an updated spin by NBC, be it by remake or continuation.

'My Two Dads'

This time around, it's about a gay couple who, back in college, when they were both still in the closet, slept with the same woman. Now said woman has died and left her 13-year-old daughter to this couple that is used to their lives as fashionable DINKs (double income, no kids) -- but which one is the father. Dick Butkus

Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies

  • The Backlot
Brace yourselves. This list of the Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies is probably going to generate some howls of protest thanks to a rather major upset in the rankings. Frankly, one that surprised the hell out of us here at AfterElton.

But before we get to that, an introduction. A few weeks ago we asked AfterElton readers to submit up to ten of their favorite films by write-in vote. We conducted a similar poll several years ago, but a lot has happened culturally since then, and a number of worthy movies of gay interest have been released. We wanted to see how your list of favorites had changed.

We also wanted to expand our list to 100 from the top 50 we had done previously. We figured there were finally enough quality gay films to justify the expansion. And we wanted to break out gay documentaries onto their own list (You'll find the

Leaping Around in Time with Fading of the Cries: A Movie Review

Director/writer: Brian A. Metcalf. Cast: Brad Dourif, Mackenzie Rosman and Elaine Hendrix. The Fading of the Cries is primarily a fantasy film with a few horror-styled monster trappings. The walking dead and unassuming vampires are used in a tale about a young lad, Jacob (Jordan Matthews), who rescues an equally aged, Sarah (Hallee Hirsh), from certain death. All they mostly do is run around town in a vain attempt to find a safe haven. A tiny bit of interest with Jacob and Sarah is developed. But what happens is hardly Twilight. The interest is there, but they do not go the extra mile. The chemistry developed has the feel of Matthews giving a very early Keaanu Reeves-like performance and Hirsh with the presence of Sandra Bullock. She’s clearly in charge, but not by much. When the little township she lives in suddenly becomes zombie central, nobody is interested in learning why.

Review: "Make the Yuletide Gay" Makes the Holidays Mildly Amusing at Best

There’s really something of a holiday movie curse, isn’t there? Hundreds of Christmas movies have been made over the years, but most are terrible. You can count the number of decent ones on one hand.

I’d love to be able to say that Make the Yuletide Gay, the latest film from gay indie writer-director Rob Williams (Long-Term Relationship, Back Soon), breaks the holiday movie curse.

It doesn’t.

I feel like I have a lump of coal in my heart writing a negative review of this sweet, simple gay-themed holiday comedy. But it’s just not a very good movie.

Gunn, a young gay college student who is totally out on campus, still hasn’t come out to his parents. On the way home for the Christmas holidays, he stops at a public restroom to “de-gay” himself, changing his clothes and messing up his hair (but disappointing

On related news, the first look of Gavin Rossdale as a rock star accused of a murder has been shared below. The investigation for the episode airing November 11 is revolving around vampires. The husband of singer Gwen Stefani filmed his part last week and wrote on his Twitter, "My goth side is dormant now, although the eyeliner traces remain."

In the middle of its fifth season, "Criminal Minds" continues to deliver strong numbers on Wednesday nights. Considering that, CBS has accumulated plans to have a spin-off which pilot is written as part of a "Criminal Mind" Spring episode. Instead of yanking one character from the original series,
