Salvation - CBS - Wednesday




Salvation - Series Premiere
S01E01 "Pilot"
Wednesday, July 12, 2017 @ 9/8c on CBS



Spoiler: About
"Salvation is a suspense thriller that centers on a staggering discovery: an enormous asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth. Without alerting the public, MIT grad student Liam Cole and tech billionaire Darius Tanz team up to save humanity from this impending apocalypse. Keeping it secret will complicate life for Liam and those closest to him. Meanwhile, the government has its own approach. Grace Barrows is both the Pentagon Press Secretary and a single mom, and she deftly navigates the complicated waters of both jobs. Deputy Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards has been tasked with running their own top-secret plan to deflect the asteroid. Meanwhile, Darius recruits an aspiring sci-fi writer, Jillian, to work on a theoretical approach to saving humanity—a project that might prove to be all too real. Salvation stars Santiago Cabrera, Jennifer Finnigan, Charlie Rowe, Jacqueline Byers, Rachel Drance, Shazi Raja, and Ian Anthony Dale." Source

Re: Salvation - CBS - Wednesday

Where is Morgan Freeman (as President) when you need him?


Spoiler: spoilers
Deep Impact showed the proper way to handle an event like this and it's not by assigning hit squads to assassinate people who prematurely discover the truth. Will they be killing every amateur astronomer who happens to view the incoming asteroid? What about the rest of the world? It appears that the Pentagon and MIT (one guy) are the only institutes in the world who are aware of the asteroid? I guess it's not surprising given the current political climate of isolationism in the US, the rest of the world is unimportant or doesn't exist. Anyway, that's as preposterous as the hit squads. Eventually the impending doom must be announced, so couldn't they keep these people on on ice until then? I guess it's easier to kill them, and it puts a little action in a pretty unremarkable show. I'll give it a few more episodes.

Re: Salvation - CBS - Wednesday

Mr. Bill, I'm not sure what you're saying about the series, but it wasn't that good to me.

We've seen this series, or similar series, a million times.

I see this meteor never being either shot out of space, or moved so it won't impact with the Earth and kill everyone on the planet.

Re: Salvation - CBS - Wednesday

I agree Hodge, it's been done to death... Armageddon, Deep Impact and so far the series doesn't appear to have the finances to approach those, so what's the point? Some of the plot points are ridiculous as I mentioned in my spoiler. I will give it a few more chances though. But .. how can they even approach something like this ...

I agree it wasn't great but I didn't mind it. I think it has the potential to be a nice light entertaining show. I didn't like the Elon Musk character, he seemed like a bit of a douche, but I didn't mind the grad student or the Pentagon Press Secretary.

There was a show recently cancelled (APB) who had the same type character. Multi-billionaire, arrogant, narcissistic. I see this series going the same way.

I didn't mind him either, plus the girl he's fallen in love with will keep him on the straight and narrow.

I also found the Press-Secretary a fine character. She's definitely going to be the moral compass of the series. I'm just hoping she can keep Tanz from allowing his ego to get the best of him and kill the rest of us.
