We don't expect much from television these days. We actually don't pay for television service at all any more. However, this show has us taking a second look at what CBS has to offer. This show was very entertaining. Yes, there is some forced drama in the inter-personal relationships, but I gave it 5 stars anyway because we enjoyed it so much. If you are a Star Gate, Star Trek (Deep Space Nine, Enterprise), Haven, and Eureka fan and are waiting for the (hopefully) next season of Expanse--give Salvation a try!
Note: Some people have been looking for episode 13, but I think the episode counting is just different on Amazon. Amazon's count ends at 12 because it lists/plays episodes 4 and 5 as one episode. On Amazon, episode 4 is both The Human Strain and Keeping the Faith (note the 1hour and 21 minutes runtime).
