I’m taking a couple days off from work so I can honor someone who was an instrumental part of my tank platoon’s invasion of Iraq seven years ago, and yet the most important thing I can possibly do while I’m in New Orleans is NOT sample the delicious food or thriving culture, but to warn you of this horrific abortion offered next fall by ABC called “My Generation,” an ABC drama airing next fall that details the lives of nine graduates of the high school class of 2000 in the year 2010.
I can’t put into words exactly what I hate about this stillborn turd — aside from the fact that it uses imagery from 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina to try to give the series emotional weight — but I watched the trailer above, and the most important thing in my life became to warn people NOT to watch this steaming puddle of ebola vomit. Here’s what you’re guaranteed: The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony,” and nine people — none of whom have gotten fat or gone bald in the ten years since high school — who JESUS GOD IT’S JUST TERRIBLE. TERRIBLE. JUST AGREE WITH ME AND SET IT ON FIRE.
