    and I identify myself as a Gen Xer; however, I think X'ers are split into two types:  the Cosby/Michael Jackson-Prince-Madonna/Atari/Reagan wave who came of age during the 1980's, and the Seinfeld/Nirvana-2Pac-Mariah Carey/Nintendo/Clinton wave that came of age during the 1990's.  PBS was a huge deal for me as a child, especially in the 1970's, and Disney Channel/Nickelodeon weren't available everywhere during the early 1980's.  More importantly, they didn't have commercials pitching the latest toy or highly processed, over-sweetened breakfast cereal every six minutes either.
