Everything you need to know about sci-fi TV the first week of 2010

They're back! That is, Heroes, Dollhouse, Ghost Hunters International, Ghost Whisperer, Legend of the Seeker, Sanctuary and Medium are all back with new episodes. Chuck's even back with a new season, and Battlestar Galactica is back with a new movie.

Here's what we have to look forward to on sci-fi and paranormal TV this week.

... Sanctuary (Syfy), Friday at 10 p.m.

Druitt's back, but did he commit murder?

Sanctuary returns with the final episodes of the second season. In "Haunted," Magnus (Amanda Tapping), Druitt and the team save the passengers and crew of a ship sinking off the coast of South Africa. However, after the refugees are teleported to the safety of the Sanctuary, one of them is brutally murdered and Druitt (Christopher Heyerdahl) becomes the key suspect in the crime.
"If you are fans of Druitt and Magnus and their star-crossed relationship, you don't want to miss that one," said executive producer Damian Kindler. "It features a lot about the Sanctuary and a lot of the history of John Druid. A very intense episode. If you like Jack the Ripper served up heavy, you're going to like this episode."

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan (Syfy), Sunday at 9 p.m.

A movie from the Cylons' point of view

Is thinking about the upcoming prequel series, Caprica, making you feel sadly nostalgic for the original series? Well, remember how the opening of BSG said the Cylons had a plan? Now you can find out all about that plan in this two-hour movie, which was directed by and stars Edward James Olmos.
Writer and executive producer Jane Espenson sums up the film this way: "I keep saying that The Plan answers questions you didn't know you had, and I think that's a good way to put it. It takes familiar events and shows you a little of what happened before or after (or because of) the scene you already know. If you look at BSG as a puzzle piece, The Plan is the next piece over—interlocking with it."

The Plan follows two of the Number Ones (the Cavil modes played by Dean Stockwell) as they take two different approaches to wipe out the human race. The movie, which is already available on DVD and Blu-ray, also stars Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, Michael Hogan, Michael Trucco and Kate Vernon.
