Generation X airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on National Geographic Channel.

Narrated by Christian Slater, Generation X features an impressive group of authors, journalists, politicians and celebrities who lend their voices and their personal stories to the series, including Kevin Smith, Courtney Love, Sarah Palin, Molly Ringwald and many others. Each hour examines one major milestone of Generation X — from the premiere of Reality Bites to the remarkable presidential election of 2008 to the legalization of gay marriage — and then breaks it down to explore the political, cultural and economic forces at play. Using original interviews with gen X members and archival footage from the era, the series puts the Generation in the spotlight it has long deserved.
