BATTLESTAR GALACTICA RETURNS

Sci Fi has announced that Battlestar Galactica will return for its fourth and final season beginning on Jan. 16 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

The 10-week run will culminate with the series finale on March 20.

Here's how Sci Fi describes the season:

MARVELS: EYE OF THE CAMERA -- BLACK AND WHITE

Marvel Comics has announced that the Marvels: Eye of The Camera limited series will now be shipping with black-and-white variant editions.

Marvels writer Kurt Busiek joins with artist Jan Anacleto on the series, in which famed news photographer Phil Sheldon bears witness to some of the most critical moments in Marvel Universe history.

"Jay produced all of the artwork for Marvels: Eye of The Camera in greytone as a natural part of his process, and it was all so lovely and so complete unto itself that we wanted to show it off in its natural state, before it was painted up," said editor Tom Brevoort. "One look at any of the greytone pages will tell you why."

The first of the six issues will be stores on Dec. 3.

SMALLVILLE NOVEMBER SWEEPS HIGHLIGHTS

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS -- "DESTROY MALEVOLENCE"

Padmé Amidala and C-3PO make their series entrances in the "Destroy Malevolence" episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network on Friday at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

In the episode -- the final act of a three-episode arc -- Padme and C-3PO are taken hostage by General Grievous, leaving Anakin and Obi-Wan to save the Senator and complete the destruction of the Malevolence.

Catherine Taber, the voice of Padme, feels she is not a conventional damsel in distress.

"She sometimes ends up in sticky situations, but always for the right reasons, because she's out on her own doing what she believes in," Taber said. "She doesn't really require rescuing; she's quite capable of rescuing herself. She can be kind of girly, and yet at the same time she's completely willing to get her hands dirty if she needs to. Playing her is a lot of fun, because it's very close to playing myself - although she's been a queen and she's a senator, so she may be a bit more refined."

The episode offers a glimpse at unexplored sides of Padme's character and her relationship with Anakin.

"What was fun about this episode was that it was the first time in The Clone Wars that Padme and Anakin are physically together," Taber said. "In the movie, they only interacted via hologram, so this is a chance to see us together, fighting side by side. It's sort of the Star Wars version of a date, and it's always really fun to see these characters interact. Their secret relationship is so central to the larger Star Wars story, and every time they're together it gives us a glimpse into what's to come and why."

"What would a T-1001 need with a doctor? Sarah, John and Cameron may soon find out as they track down another name on their list. Elsewhere, a woman from Derek's past surprises him in the present."
