Watch Jackie Robinson Slay Cthulhu in the Full Premiere Episode of “Lovecraft Country” Free on YouTube!

While the premiere episode of “Lovecraft Country” was a mostly faithful adaptation of the first 60 pages of Matt Ruff’s book, documenting the road trip travels of Atticus, Letitia and George through a treacherous landscape filled with monsters both human and Lovecraftian, the episode’s opening sequence was a bold departure from anything present in Ruff’s novel.

Immediately putting its own stamp on the material, the HBO series kicked off with a 2-minute dream sequence that took us inside the head of science fiction-lover Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors), populated by memories of war and cameo appearances from both real-life heroes and horror story monsters. Namely, Jackie Robinson and Cthulhu himself.

Cthulhu doesn’t actually appear at any point in Matt Ruff’s novel but the Misha Green-created HBO series worked him into the opening minutes of its premiere episode, flying across a retro-looking sci-fi landscape before being dispatched (for a moment, at least) by Jackie Robinson… with a baseball bat. Robinson wields the bat like a machete, slicing the beast clean in half. It was unquestionably one of the coolest starts to a television series we’ve ever seen, a highly unexpected treat even for those who are intimately familiar with the source material.

Coupled with the episode’s shockingly gruesome, monster-filled final minutes, well, it’s pretty clear that “Lovecraft Country” has designs on taking the novel to a whole new level.

You can now watch not only the incredible opening dream sequence but the entire premiere episode of the series, titled Sundown, for free via YouTube. Click “play” below to begin!

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
