Whenever a drama takes a brief siesta, the show's shepherds typically use the last episode to drop cliff-hanger bombshells to hook viewers for the series' return, like putting Erica's son in harm's way,  Chad's grave prognosis and that creepy cross-species pregnancy. The re-imagined sci-fi series awakens from its winter slumber to address those suspenseful scenarios, with genre babes Rekha Sharma (Battlestar Galactica) and Lexa Doig (Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda) along for the ride. — Michael Chant

Though it paled in magnitude to the late-February earthquake in Chile, the earthquake that hit Haiti early this year proved far more devastating in terms of deaths, damage and the emergency response. Reported by Martin Smith, this Frontline installment offers a first-hand look at what went right and, more often than not, wrong during the initial relief efforts. — Jeff Gemmill
