... Question: When Stargate Atlantis was first announced, they said it would be different from SG-1. There would be civilians and military going through the gate knowing they would be cut off with no help from Earth. I was excited about that show because it meant the rules would change. People would be on the brink of death and actually die without a last-minute save. That show lasted less than a season. Now we have Stargate Universe, the show we should have had with Atlantis, and the fans are complaining. I love Universe because it is darker and shows what really happens when you make difficult choices and people die. What are your thoughts about Universe? Do you think it will see a third season? — Traci

Matt Roush: I like Universe for the same reasons you do (although the glut of new season and November sweeps programming has kept me from keeping up with this one lately). I can see why the traditional Stargate fan may not embrace a show this dark and glum, lacking the humorous esprit de corps that characterized the original series. It would be like if an NCIS spin-off started acting more like Rubicon. But I admire Universe for sticking to its more intense premise, if that indeed has been the case. And I'd like to see Syfy support something with a little dramatic meat on its bones (not that I don't appreciate the whimsy of Warehouse 13 and Eureka). As for a third season: Haven't a clue.

November Christmas

Sunday Nov. 28th, 9/8c

November Christmas is the moving story of two families, a community, and the idea that Christmas doesn't have to come just once a year.

This holiday story tells how neighbors come to help a family trying to cope with their young daughter's illness. The story is narrated by the healthy adult daughter who shares her story with a group of children through a children's book she has written and illustrated.

The father's (John Corbett) unwavering love toward his sick little girl propels him to come up with a plan to move the clock: pushing up all the holidays. His unlikely ally is his neighbor, a quiet but perceptive farmer (Sam Elliott) who figures out the plan.

The two co-conspirators find they have something in common and join forces to bring the little girl and her brother Halloween in August, and Christmas in November, with the farmer enlisting friends in town to join the cause, and by doing so, mending his own old bridges of friendship.

You won't want to miss this inspirational holiday fare on Sunday, November 28 on CBS.

November Christmas also stars Sarah Paulson, Karen Allen, Elizabeth McLaughlin and Emily Alyn Lind.
