my generation 01 320 'My Generation': Did ABC's docu style drama get you hooked?“My Generation” is the documentary-style dramedy on ABC that chronicles the lives of nine Austin, TX high school students in the year 2000 and then checks back in with them 10 years later. 

Old couples are no more, new couples have emerged, but old flames are still burning bright and now there are children and wedding vows involved. So what did you think of the premiere?

We think the show needs to mature a little bit. The first episode has to work so hard on establishing all the characters and the backstories that there is nary time for a breath, so we’re hoping that the show can really dig into the present-day stories more in subsequent episodes. Star Jaime King assures us that the show continues to get better and better, giving viewers “everything you want but nothing that you expect.”

What did you think of the premiere?

“My Generation” airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
