It's that odd dead zone between end of fall and winter, and the start of the TV summer season that leads to precious little original television. But we will get a couple big finales with Touch and Game of Thrones, lots of ghosts, Josh Gates and the premieres of Teen Wolf and Drop Dead Diva.

Also this week, Gates joins the Fact or Faked team as they search for gargoyles, a camera used to film Star Wars goes on the auction block on Hollywood Treasure, Stephen Hawking explores human biology on Brave New World, and Amy and Steve open a Pandora's box on The Dead Files.

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