  1. Salvation looks excellent. I love Netflix 🙂

  2. Salvation didn’t work out so well for Prime, Trevor. It’s pulled the show after only a few weeks and replaced it with Crazy on a Plane (9.30 Thursdays).

  3. It was pretty ordinary when it was on Sky 5. Wooden acting, far fetched storyline. Not surprised it didn’t work for Prime.

  4. Oh well, I haven’t watched it so I will give it a go. I wonder if Netflix will add season 11 of Doctor Who soon? I will get it on Blu-ray, actually I should have season 19 with Peter Davison in a few days, YAY 🙂
