"Salvation" on CBS: a teen "superhero" find competing with the Russians matters more than saving the Earth from an asteroid
“Salvation”, on CBS, is a somewhat hyped series about how the US deals with an asteroid threatening Earth.
Liam Cole is the 20-year-old MIT student played by British actor Charlie Rowe, who discovers the asteroid shortly after the government does. Clean cut and charismatic, Charlies finds himself in a bizarre political struggle where his own professor wants him to cross over to the Russians, who seem to be competing for the solution. The story become a reflection about today’s ideas of power and oligarchy and money as becoming more important than survival.
Erica Luttrell is girl friend Claire.
There are eight episodes, packed into six Wednesday evenings July 12 through August 16.
