Review of "Salvation" 7/15/17 by Suzanne
Airs Wednesdays 9/8c on CBS

I love scifi shows. Unfortunately, many of them are about the end of the world (I prefer shows that are more positive or are about a better future). In these shows, either a catastrophe is here (like alien invasions), or it's coming (like an asteroid or some other calamity), or it's a post-apocalyptic scenario. This one falls into the second group. I like it a lot better than some of the other shows I've seen like this, such as "The Event". The characters are interesting and relatable, and the science sounds valid (I'm no scientist, though). The first episode was enough to keep me watching, which is somewhat rare because I have more than enough to watch already.

There are four main characters, at least in the first episode. British actor Charlie Rowe plays Liam, a grad student who finds out that a large asteroid is headed toward the Earth. Ian Anthony Edwards ("Hawaii Five-0") plays Harris, the Deputy Secretary of Defense. He's been secretly dating Pentagon Press Secretary Grace (Jennifer Finnegan), a single mom. Santiago Cabrera plays the most interesting character - Darius Tanz, a billionaire inventor. The government has a plan to stop the asteroid, but Darius doesn't trust that they can, so he's developed a spaceship ark to take a group of humans to Mars for safety. I believe Grace and Liam are the good guys, but it's unclear about the honestey and motives of the other two.

Someone is going around killing people who know about the asteroid, but we don't know who's behind it or why. Probably someone in the government. It's a very interesting show, and enjoyable for the summer.
