  1. Give ABC credit for an interesting format and a drama that isn't about doctors, lawyers, or cops, but it's hard to imagine enough viewers going for this one that any of these folks will ever make it to 30.

    It's trite and forced, a collection of cardboard types rather than characters.
  3. Eventually, perhaps things will jell and Generation can evolve into the primetime soap it so badly needs to be. Until then, it's about as insufferable as wine-sniffing yuppies and carries an odor like day-old deli meat.

    While it's nice to see a show that isn't cops/docs/lawyers, it'd be nicer if the show was better.
  5. My Generation is based on a Swedish series, "On God's Highway." Dramatic storytelling seems to have veered off the road and crashed into a tree.

    Watch this one quick because this is going to get cancelled quick. The documentary style is plodding and slow, you can see plot twists comingWatch this one quick because this is going to get cancelled quick. The documentary style is plodding and slow, you can see plot twists coming a mile away, and some of the acting is really sophomoric. Not of the characters are particularly appealing or unique, though all are stereotypical. Maybe if this were a 30-minute show it might have a chance, but that sound you hear about the 20-minute mark is viewers turning to another channel. Full Review »

Great concept, grea acting, and overall great. This show is an amazing "where are the now" sort of thing, that is so realistic. A perfect show, and one of the best of the season, for sure.
