By now, if you haven’t heard about Community star Donald Glover’s new TV show, Atlanta, you’ve probably been living under a rock. Or you don’t use Twitter. But the long awaited series about two cousins trying to navigate Atlanta’s rap scene, which finally premiered Tuesday evening, is quickly gathering rave reviews from critics and viewers alike. If you want see what the buzz is all about for yourself, FX is streaming the first episode for free right now on YouTube and Facebook, along with their own website, commercial free.

A word of advice: The YouTube video is age-restricted, so it may prompt you to log into your YouTube account. Opt for Facebook or FX’s website if you don’t have one.
