    Watch 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 theWatch this one quick because this is going to get cancelled quick.

    By the end of The Breakfast Club, the kids have learned that each of them is not solely a Brain, a Princess, a Criminal, a Basket Case, or an Athlete, but individuals who defy categorization. If only the characters in My Generation--and its dwindling viewers--were afforded the same opportunity.

    The documentary device is often stifling to and distracting from the drama, and using labels as shorthand to introduce the characters makes them feel even more one-dimensional--a device that's acceptable in reality TV, perhaps, but potentially fatal to scripted fare.
  3. 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.
