Is anyone watching this Netflix original series?

The premise is that people from a dystopian future are traveling back to the present day to save us from ourselves and consequently cancel the awful circumstances that they came from. My wife and I figured with a basis like that, it had to be either really bad or really good. We decided to give it a chance and we're hooked. The acting and writing are great and each episode leaves us craving the next.

Best dialogue so far:

"So how many bottles of wine do you have to drink to get blackout drunk anyway?"

"I have no idea. I only do heroin."
"We're going to need another redhead."

I added it to my list a while back but haven't watched it because I figured it would be horrible. I'll have to watch the first episode.

Watched a few episodes, then got side-tracked with some other series.

It was interesting enough to keep watching, and passed my three episode test - which is where I left off.  Obviously wasn't yet pulled into it enough, however, to continue at the expense of others.  *shrug*
