Another vote for enjoyed. I'd slot this below must-recommend TV but it's certainly good. Maybe 73rd percentile.

My main objection was it didn't really break ground in any way. Closest thing to something new was the character development of the kids.

Finished this up recently. Overall it was very enjoyable and I look forward to seeing more (hopefully), but it wasn't great. There are moments in the series where I scratch my head and go "why?" Prime example is:

Scene in last or penultimate episode:
Spoiler:
The slow-mo scene with the FBI agent trashing his motel room.
Just came off as comical/silly to me in a serious show.

Watched the pilot on recommendation from TDA. I'm impressed so far. Reminds me of Breaking Bad.
