Even if you haven’t yet watched last night’s premiere of HBO’s The Young Pope (starring Jude Law as the titular pope with a v. pious Diane Keaton as Sister Mary, the woman who raised him since he was 7), you probs know that people were really excited about it. If you even glanced at your social feeds in the last couple weeks since press around the show starting ramping up, you saw a Twitter feed bursting with hilarious anticipation for the chic young pope, and with good reason—since we’re essentially living in a Twilight Zone version of reality (ICYMI, *actual* monster Donald Trump gets sworn into the highest office in U.S. politics this week), peops have been v. v. amused by the idea of a tanned, cigarette-smoking, 47-year-old New Yorker named Lenny shaking up the Vatican. Here, the most entertaining tweets about The Young Pope premiere (and a few select gems from before the first episode dropped).

People are living for Pope Jude’s MAJOR chapeau moment 


But some think HBO bit Queen Bey’s style


And not everyone was feeling this lewk 


Pope Jude showed his bare booty within the first five mins and folks couldn’t handle it 


And TBH, we believed this *was* the pope’s actual entrance music at first


He’s not like a regular pope, he’s a cool pope! 


Not everyone is totally sure what’s happening on the show… 


…or how the idea even made it out of the pitch meeting


But they’re def excited for this coming season (‘scuze the profanity)
