The people of Lawndale just don't get Daria Morgendorffer. She's cool with that. See, Daria was born alienated, and now she's just trying to make it through high school with as little human contact as possible. Popularity, friends, activities, whatever. Daria lacks enthusiasm, but she makes up for it with sarcasm. Includes all five seasons, both home movies, interviews, and more.

Quotes: When wanting to better best quote the show’s clever quotes and quips… I refrained myself from quoting many of them, as this I was sure I would mess up show’s integrity and interesting lines. So these three quotes (at present moment) will be sufficient and they will be the only ones I need submit! -X; Who

[In Episode referencing ex-football player, Tommy Sherman and him having had just died, and girl coming up to Daria for consoling, counseling advice… Jane Lane says then to Daria]: “You just made $10 dollars off that poor girl’s suffering.” [Daria]: “You’re right, Jane… next time… (it’ll be) twenty (dollars).”

[In “Arts ‘N Crass Episode, Jane Lane comments on Daria’s natural, individual self]: “Wow, excellent, Daria. You’re youthful integrity is tearing your family asunder.”

[Jessie, Trent’s male musician amigo, says]: “We have to be there, at the flea market, by 7:00AM, this to setup our stand and supplies.” [Jane Lane]: “No problem. Daria’s an early bird.” [Creatively capturing that moment of an early bird at sunrise, Daria says]: “There’s nothing more special than seeing a sun rise… this of course, except, if, when, and then, watching it set… in reverse (of course).” *I rewrote Daria’s quote here, which now nears more to my liking… And in my thinking, this after rewriting it, I think that it, this particular scene, maintains its integrity, its philosophical, logical, and original beauty*

Helen Morgendorffer: All right, Ms. Li, let me make sure I have this straight; You took my daughter's poster from her, altered it's content, exhibited it against her will, and are now threatening discipline because you claim she defaced her own property which you admit to stealing?

Ms. Angela Li: That's not what I said at all!

Helen Morgendorffer: Ms. Li, are you familiar with the phrase "Violation of Civil Liberties"?

Ms. Angela Li: I...

Helen Morgendorffer: [Interrupting] And the phrase "Big fat lawsuit"?

I LOVE this series. This was probably one of the best things ever made for television, and "Is it College Yet?" is probably one of the best conclusions for a TV series I've ever seen (seriously, I rewatched that baby like 4 times)! The dialogue was so smart and reflective of typical life, I feel like everyone can relate to at least one character in this series. Daria's sharp humor is amazing, and all the characters in general were pretty interesting to follow (my favorite is Jane). I was kind of the Daria of my school, so I can relate to a lot of things she says or feels, and if I had a Jane Lane friend by my side, things would be perfect. xD The series was perfect until midway through season 3, and then it kinda started faltering for me. It was still entertaining though, and season 5 had some pretty good episodes as the series drew to a close. I'm not a big fan of the Tom developments because I thought Tom kinda came off as paternal and pretentious, but that's just my opinion. I loved Quinn development towards the end, I felt she was one of the characters who really grew and improved for the better.
Great series, I'd recommend this to anyone interested in black humor and sarcasm. Enjoy!

Daria: (The complete collection animation): *Tinkering, Thinking, Thoughts of Mine Mind, this regarding what show, Daria, had brought: (1)If one is like or is an apathetic enthusiast, one will willingly want devour, animated show, Daria! (2)I had felt show Daria to be an apt, well-pieced and put together, adaptively adroit, social and anti-social, commentary piece! (3)The audio and video vibe that character Daria had displayed and played was that of an apathetic… though this then, I had thought it and her to have had been done in an apathetic, most awesome, meaningful way! (4)I loved the core cast of characters; they had felt authentic and as actual, relatable beings, they then being of course, beings, whom, I, myself, might have run into, this from my many moments from my supposed, said life! (5)I loved the varying vast, cast of characters. I loved listening and hearing to the many teachers and many students… and of I, having had the chance to view their lives in and out of school! (6)It takes heart, mind, and sapient spirit to be as this apparently apathetic, and this then, when in, and among a society, who refuses… to have heart… to see mind… to see spirit … to bear its own bare butt behind. And so, she, Daria, in my book, is as then, a well equipped, quip wielding, word warrior! (7)Daria, the character, is as sweetly smart, her having heart, she is as sarcastically sharing, and doing her part, as she stays strong and mainstays her apathetic way; and to this, she needs stay strong among sickly society, and its unyielding, wicked ways! (8)I had loved the special berries episode where when Daria had taken charge of a situation at large, this of course where when her parents and her sister had gone into maddening, stir crazy, insane states; this situation spawned from them eating psychotropic, good time, berries! (9)The maze episode had reminded me of how we all walk through mind mazes and through emotional mazes! Emotional and mental conditioning! Strong minds know they walk amidst paths of delusion… there’s no denying it! (10)I love Daria’s ending sequences, it catering to the show’s cast of characters, and it showing their personalities and/or possible, potential ones! The closing, climatic credits, could hint: “we're more than our outer, exterior, somatic shells; we are more than our vanity; we are more than our love, hating hells!” (11)An eerie eldricht “la-la…la…la-la” striking sound beats and bears itself at least twice per each episode. This sound, I think, sets the mental and emotional stage… in which she, Daria, and apathetic company, live in; I think this theatrical sound to be quite, cleverly and carefully done! (12)When I am in my more, serious, sight seen, seeming, apathetic mode, I suppose it could look a lot like and something similitude to that of Daria and her seeming, outer attitude… And to that… Daria and I might add, “It’s as if we lighten our load, making our self as light, this then removing loquacious, mouth-moving society of its sickening, hellish hold and of its sickening, saddening, pernicious plight”. Actually, in order for one to seem this gloomy glum, I find it takes a certain, tremendous tenacity, this, then, and when especially it looks like one's not giving a damn, at all! (13)To me, stoic sarcasm imparts a woeful, worrisome in my heart, as it, stoic sarcasm, is as like quick, cutting orgasm, it is like gutting of one's internal-like guts, it being very visceral and very fast; and then, in this process, it makes oneself woefully wonder, “did my wits work as too fast, as this then, in, and among mindless puddles of people and their murky, muddled minds… oh, no, and alas, travesty, it would seem, comes, too, this from my own cutting, equipped, careless crass, oh, alas!” Remaining Review in Summary Section:

Great nostalgia with this. The earlier episodes are much better than the later one. Both additional movies are on the 8 Disks. Total time runs over 26 hours.

What a great time capsule for the late 90's early 2000's.

I absolutely loved this show! Funny, relatable, and completely relevant even today. I only wish that they had made a sequel.

Children of the 90s unite! Emo before emo was cool. Daria is worth a watch if you are generally apathetic and enjoy dry humor. There is a lot of content as this is the entire series. Be prepared for multiple check outs.

I love this show! It is completely different from Beavis &Butthead from where it spun off. Over time Daria becomes less judgemental of different people but still acerbic!

I remember watching Daria when I was ten years old.Very old school and brings back good memories.

The writing for the story makes it so easy for the character Daria to be quick with the wit that gives the whole series this really funny in a I-know-someone-like-that aspect.

Coarse Language: Neighborly Notice: Varying Vernaculars: There were a few, if not a slew of, frightening word displays. The sarcastic sayings as per thru their fluent speaking, sarcastic owners, were rough. Personally, I’m not into sarcasm or sardonic sayings. However, I did think Daria to have had used her sarcasms for positive purposes and approaches. In that regard, it was not, too, terrible! –X; Who

Earlier Part of Review is in Comments Section: This here is Part2 of Review: (14)I’m not sure if anyone would or would want agree with me on this, but I find Daria to be as like a Rock Lee, a Bushy Brow, the ninja character from anime, Naruto. I say this, knowing this sounds preposterous, ““but I believe both, Daria and Lee are as: “Effort Masters””. And plus, Daria is at her best, a ninja, herself! She being honest, this in open daylight, and still no one (but Jane Lane and a select few) truly see and hear her world. This especially is why I think she is like Rock Lee; her having had formed her tenacious tinkering, thinking thoughts, takes massive, mega, actual effort. Others may think she is lacking in spirit and fortitude, but what they may miss is what I would call, a spitting image of Rock Lee! She’s that honestly awesome! She’s that awesomely good! She holds nothing back… not for an instant… and this before she makes her quick wit, word quip, clever, word mouthing move! Awesome, indeed! (15)Mrs. B, the economics teacher, had reminded me of show’s King of the Hill, female, teaching character, Peggy Hill! (16)I had liked the character’s eyes and how they’d be as one color, and them, the eyes, having no center pupil! (17)Neighborly Notice: Varying Vernaculars: There are a few, if not a slew of, frightening word displays. The sarcastic sayings as per their fluent speaking, sarcastic owners, can be rough. Personally, I’m not into sarcasm or sardonic sayings. However, I did think Daria to have had utilized her sarcasms for more positive purposes and approaches. In that regard, it was not, too, terribly horrific! (18)I had thought Daria, the animation, to be as a terrific juxtaposition, as this regarding social subjects of our so, said, supposed society! (19)In relation to College Bound Episode: I’ve related to that burnt out feeling a few fold times from my seeming life… And yet, and as well, attributing to this burnt out feeling, I might write that it had probably started out from when I was a child. I had realized, yeah, I could compete with others on their planes of existence, and yeah, I know competitions are as an illusion, but I’ll just stay in the game… I’ll remain as mute, so as I don’t have to pretentiously pretend to be boring, banal, and be deceptively cute! (20)Given to time constraints, I had only managed to finish first season of show, Daria. I apologize to Daria, to all whom have apathetic souls, and to all whom had provided and enjoyed this piece; I apologize, as well, to myself; as I could have done better; I was feeling tired as of late and neglected my normal kind of write-up review viewpoints… that’s my own fault… that is if fault is a requirement here; though perhaps, I’ll re-write and re-edit this Daria entry, this on some other day! Does that sound okay? (21)As per finishing show, Daria, someday, I would want and like that, this vastly, very much! **TagsSummary: apathy, apathetic, shallowness, superficial, sarcasm, social commentary, America lifestyles, enthusiasm is enemy, self awareness, high school, wit, witty, wit wielding, popular people, unpopular people, fashion, culture, culturally acceptable, intellect, I am, friends, bonds, character comparisons. ***Rating: 6.3/5.0; Xandor Who
