You are right Sherman Logan. —Seinfeld described his generation as being about ‘Nothing’- except you said it better....
My extremely unironic POV is that if you don’t have anything you are willing to die for, then you really don’t have anything worth living for.
Most movies and TV shows are ironic today. They mock their own story. Why should I buy into and believe in a story when the makers obviously don’t? And if you don’t believe in a story, what in the world are you doing spending $100M to film it?
One movie made in recent years that as far as I could tell was made without a trace of irony was Lord of the Rings.
The makers of the movie obviously took their story seriously, and IMO it made it a much better movie.
Also, Seinfeld was born in 1954, so he's a baby boomer.
