FX knows it has a buzz-worthy show on its hands with Donald Glover’s quirky show “Atlanta,” which debuted last night to social media and critical raves. (A 91 out of 100 now on Metacritic for critics and 8.9 out of 10 from users!)

To keep the momentum going and get the word out, the network has released the first episode on YouTube and Facebook for anyone to watch. In the episode, Glover’s character Earn is struggling to get his life together. He has no fixed home, no money, a crap job (if you’d call it that) and a rather hopeless view on the world. But then he hears his cousin Paper Boi has a possible hit record and wants to manage him. Check out the rest here:

Here it is on Facebook (where it’s been seen 253,000 times already), if that is your preferred platform:

Check out my interview with Glover, where he talks about why he did the show and what he hopes it can achieve.
