As always, really, I think Generation X could use some good cheer right now, as Drew Weisholtz points out in her latest piece on Today.com. While I don't think it will make us feel young again, it may make us happy for an hour. And isn't that something?
Though I am sure the actors/characters (is there a difference to us, when the show is playing?) have changed, and grown older, so have we. I'm not sure we're ready to see that.
I wonder if they will be wiser. The adversity they once faced on the show - from the broken hearts to the squabbles at the beach house - seemed a bit silly then (and certainly now) - but, boy, did we get sucked in. We have lived since then, too. To be fair, they tackled big problems then as well, like drug addiction and domestic violence. These problems in the real world haven't progressed much as people would like - but that's another story.
