"My Generation" is a pseudo documentary about kids from the class of 2000, and interchanges between footage from then and footage from 2010. When I first heard about it I thought it was a genuinely original idea for a show that could focus on the most recent crop of adults to come up into the "real world."
Apparently the real world is a miserable, depressing place. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is sad and frustrated in this half-rate attempt at genuine social drama. The shows biggest issue is simply that it tries too hard; it seems too obvious that the sins of their use or of their parents is apparent in adulthood.
I have trouble buying into the idea of collective misery in a show examining today's budding adults. It's the kind of show that's very two-dimensional, but will make viewers feel as if they're sophisticated because it "looks gritty" and strives to feel "real." But ultimately it fails whole heartedly. It's not profound, it's not edgy ... it's just an unfortunate mess.
