OUT NOW: "Daria: The Complete Animated Series" on DVD!

A balm for droll, disaffected girls too smart for the moronicity of high school (and ergo, the rest of the world), the character of Daria Morgendorffer won my heart in the late 90s with her dry NPR-on-sarcasm voice, bitingly brainy point-of-view, and aggressive brand of apathy. No one could just refuse better than Daria, whether she was cutting down her popular sister Quinn or dealing with Beavis and Butt-head's shenanigans. "Daria" started as a spinoff of "Beavis and Butt-head" but quickly became a pop culture entity in its own right, and the show made caustic wit and ironic affect the true accessories for any self-respecting grrrl back in the day. (One of my favorite Daria quote: "Edgy and icky are so hard to tell apart these days." Dude, THAT IS STILL SO TRUE!) Now the complete "Daria" DVD series is finally out, and I'm just happy to be able to hang out with Daria and her best friend Jane Lane once more (and catch a glimpse of Jane's brother, Trent, lead singer of Mystik Spiral and Daria's mega-crush.) All I have to say is: LIFE IS AWESOME ONCE AGAIN.

The episode where the holidays hide out with Daria and she wonders if they're part of "an alternative lifestyles parade":

And of course, the video for Mystik Spiral's "Freakin' Friends"!

And more Mystik Spiral, because it's just too g-damn funny!

I always felt a little weird about identifying with Jane but sharing Daria's opinions of Trent.

i could see how that would produce inner feelings of squickiness, yes!

it's funny, i think most people i know who watched the show identified with jane more than daria. i felt most daria-like in my family relations, because my younger sisters were super-popular in high school.

xo k.

thank you. thank you so much.

oh, daria. the glitterberry episode was my favorite.

But does the DVD have the real music?? I heard there was some music-clearance issue.

The thing I love about Daria is that the show wasn't as judgmental as Daria herself. I don't really remember if that was true in the beginning, but by the end of the show, none of the characters were as one-dimensional as they seemed.

Also I think the same person did the voice of Quinn, Mrs. Morgandorfer, and Jane Lane! That sort of blows my mind.

kristin: glitterberry! omg, i forgot about that one!

john: that's a good point about the show not being as judgmental as daria herself; i think that's true.

actually, i think there might be different music on the DVD. the big reason the DVD took so long was because getting the original music rights would've been super expensive. (i think this was true of 'Beavis & Butt-Head' and a lot of the other MTV shows, actually.)

i can't believe the voices of Jane Lane and Quinn emerged from the same body!

YAY DARIA FANS!!!

I totally loved Daria, I can't believe I forgot about it.
