When it comes to documentaries centered around millennials and our desperation and addiction to our phones and social media, they’re generally negative and very critical. It’s tough, because when a generation is looked poorly upon, it makes those that belong to that era feel like they are being judged relentlessly.
Which is why I appreciated Frontline’s documentary, Generation Like. It wasn’t overly critical or spiteful. It presented the facts in a fun and mostly unbiased why. It discussed what my generation likes, why we like these things, and how it integrates into our society.
It’s rare to see something that focuses on my generation be positive. And I am personally thankful for that.
