Pretty good so far.

  • Note that every episode has an end-credit scene.
  • A second season has been confirmed

2% of the global population disappears and everything continues on as usual probably.

Mediocre at best. Maybe something will happen later, but they sure as shit don't get anywhere near to some point. It's just a drama that stretches a premise.
