Winter may be digging in bigtime, but at least we can cozy up with vampire and werewolf action on Being Human, more hot vamps on The Vampire Diaries and some time-twisting fringe science on ... well... Fringe.

Also this week, Rebecca and Doc take on a bank robber on Alcatraz, Bo goes undercover to find a missing college girl on Lost Girl, TAPS hunts spirits at a bed and breakfast on Ghost Hunters, Leonard considers ending his friendship contract with a selfish Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory, things get explosive for Cassie in the love department on The Secret Circle, it's Archer and the crew on a train on Archer, things get dicey for Sam and Dean on Supernatural, it's a whole new take on Hansel and Gretel on Grimm, King Arthur kills the wrong man on Merlin, and we find out the aftermath of Paul's accident on The Fades.

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

Monday, Jan. 30

Alcatraz (Fox) 9 p.m. - "Cal Sweeney"
