Good but definitely has an angle
Good series so far, but definitely has a strong bias towards journalists and other pop culture figures and their viewpoints. Slacker, Grunge and Reality Bites may define some of us, but those are hardly the ‘voice of a generation’. It leans towards a Seattle or San Francisco viewpoint, and generally ignores most of the rest of the country - let alone places like Houston or Denver. Maybe 20% applies broadly across the generation.
And maybe that it’s - does someone born in 1961 really have much in common with someone born in 1981? Two completely different eras to grow up in.
I see the second episode continues with that trend. Where’s the ‘crisis of confidence’ speech or the Iran hostages as seminal moments? Definitely shows a particular viewpoint doesn’t it?
