    This show was great! 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.

    I loved this show, especially Keir O'Donnell as "Kenny"...nothing superficial about that portrayal! I watched the Twitter feeds during the show and they were overwhelmingly positive. Another case proving that mainstream critics' opinions aren't predictive of viewers'.

    A really interesting concept. i found this show to be extremely entertaining. it has 'Likeable' characters, that we can ALL relate to. i will be sticking around around for the rest of the season.

    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.
