You just can't keep Helen Magnus from a goal once she sets her mind to it. No on knows that better than Will Zimmerman. In the Nov. 18 episode, "Icebreaker," Helen (Amanda Tapping) flies with Will (Robin Dunne) into a snowy, stormy area of the Bering Sea where Henry (Ryan Robbins), Declan (Robert Lawrenson) and his team from the UK Sanctuary are stranded on a shipwrecked icebreaker. "Icebreaker," written and directed by Martin Wood, looks like one of those classic, trapped-in-a-tight-space "Sanctuary" adventures.

In the sneak peek for "Acolyte," airing at 9 p.m. Dec. 9 on Syfy, Kate and Will (Robin Dunne) interrogate an abnormal who is part of the Hollow Earth team plotting an above-ground attack.

Sadly, it's here. The 2012 Major League Baseball season preview, Chicago edition. Look, no sugarcoating here, so let's break it down. This is going to be awful on many levels. Bad up north, bad down south. Cubs first. I'm inclined to go easy on these guys for attempting the impossible. Yes, they are overhauling the entire franchise, gutting it from top to bottom, flushing out all of the bad attitudes, karma and talent that doesn't belong. People, this is a monumental job. It's the athletic equivalent of overhauling the U.S. Tax Code, and just as painful.

It's part of her plan with King Odin to finally kill King Arthur (Bradley James). "I actually resembled my grandmother," McGrath said, "which was really weird.

"Vikings" wraps its season Thursday with another big showdown between Ragnar Lothbrok and King Horik. Season 2 has had many twists and turns, so why should the finale be any different? Expect to see at least one more betrayal before the hour ends. Horik (Donal Logue) has been plotting against Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), turning the Earl's friends against him. Ragnar, however, has been watching and listening. He may not say much, but he's always noticing things and weighing his options, creator Michael Hirst told me earlier in the season.

After the shocking developments in last week's episode of "Vikings," I thought it might be fun to highlight a lighter for fans this week. May I present this week's Shirtless TV Men of the Week: Alexander Ludwig and Clive Standen? In "Boneless," airing at 9 p.m. April 17 on History, Bjorn (Ludwig) gets some fight training from his uncle Rollo (Standen), and it's something to behold. Ludwig told me earlier this season that he loved shooting the scene, despite the conditions in Ireland.

And the "classic trilogy" is getting lots of attention since it looks like the new film is going to reunite Mark Hamill , Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher in their iconic roles. Riding the wave of anticipation is Lucas Books with a new line of Star Wars adventure novels set in the period during the rebellion against the Evil Galactic Empire.

The Academy Awards (being held March 2) bring out all kinds of extreme emotions and opinions from some people, but not me: I'm always totally even-tempered and maintain perspective that, in the grand scheme of things, Oscars don't mean a lot. Yeah, right. It's easy to get wrapped up in overrated nominees, undeserving winners and the occasional smart choice. On that note, here are my edited, post-deep breath thoughts about the major categories along with the unedited thoughts running through my head.

Calling his "Helix" character a "bad ass with heart," Mark Ghanime teased that Major Sergio Balleseros would do some shocking things in the show's first season. [ Spoilers ahead if you aren't caught up! ] Still, I'm not sure I can forgive him - or the "Helix" writers - for killing off smart-ass veterinarian Dr. Doreen Boyle (Catherine Lemieux) in last week's episode. "He's multifaceted, let's just say," Ghanime said in a recent conference call with reporters. "So we're going to see some surprises.
