TV Shows - Daria

Daria was an American animated television series that ran on the cable network MTV from 1997 to 2002. Created by Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis Lynn, the series about a smart, acerbic, and somewhat misanthropic high school girl was the unlikely spin-off of MTV's animated Beavis and Butt-head which ran from 1993-1997. The series was widely praised for versatile storytelling and for well-drawn characters, made many satirical thrusts about high-school life, and was full of allusions to popular culture, especially then-current pop music.

1 This is still one of my favorite shows after all these years. The writing was great and did not pander to the MTV generation. Truly a remarkable feat. I can't believe this spun off of Beavis and Butthead. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on November 25, 2013, 10:29 pm - (16 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I don't think I was the target demographic for this show, but it was really great. I would watch it again if it was in syndication somewhere. -- Submitted By: (Bryan527) on May 23, 2012, 1:30 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

4 after watching the dvd commentary I understand their reason for adding tom. that being to make Daria "grow up". that doesn't mean I like what they did. they could have introduced someone with more personality, and maybe showing up less often. maybe someone more than just a blase rich boy marginally from the same mold as Daria and Jane. it's like "oh look here comes another social outcast except he's rich and well adjusted" -- Submitted By: (wambamsam) on February 24, 2012, 11:23 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 It's not that Daria's characters didn't develop more depth than perhaps any characters on any animated series ever, it's the direction they chose to go with it. I don't hate Tom with the same degree of vile, venomous vitriol most Daria fans do, but at the same time he just seemed *too* perfect, even as his character was portrayed as being completely aware he was that way. It's easy to drive around in a beat up, rusted out old car when you know your family's loaded and can just buy you another one at any time. Pretending not to be rich doesn't actually make you not rich. And then they had to "justify" Tom's being perfect by having Daria act totally irrational towards him when she'd never done that before with anybody. Tom's character comes dangerously close to being a Marty Stu. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MartyStu -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 5, 2011, 6:39 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I really liked Daria getting a boyfriend. I thought that Daria eventually becomes a cliche if all she can do is criticize. And she's better than that. She's not just some bitter misfit. She's a living person who at some point has to grow up and admit that she has desires like everyone else. I don't like the way the show used Tom though. He was just really boring after a while. There were some great tom episodes though. How about the one where Daria begins to take Tom away from Jane. If I hadn't seen it I wouldn't have believed it, but the writers really made it believable. Daria and Tom clicked so well (in that episode). Or how about when Tom spends the night at Daria's and Quinn over hears and tells the whole school. I actually wish that someone would make a life color Daria movie. I'd love to see Jane and Daria, and Trent playing guitar. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 5, 2011, 12:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Daria was absolutely the most brilliant program ever aired by MTV, and it was spun off of the dumbest. Yes, Beavis & Butthead was where Ms. Morgendorffer got her humble beginnings, as the super smart foil for those two doofus characters, but the show that emerged truly made a lot of great statements about High School life, family life and our American values generally. This show was and still is brilliant, though questionable areas occurred when they did an episode with people playing holidays (Guy Fawkes Night helped make it a little less ridiculous), and of course "The Musical" episode, but I forgive those. I'd love to see Daria return with new age appropriate adventures. What would she make of Lawndale, today? -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 22, 2010, 10:09 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I still rock friends' minds when I tell them Daria was spun-off from Beavis and Butthead. Seriously, the shift from that show to this one I think represented a shift in sensibilities in general. I don't remember much of Beavis and Butthead, I remember laughing every once in a while but the humor was generally ineffectively juvenile. Then Daria appeared and I really loved it. I thought it was brilliant: great voice acting, funny plots, and well-made scripts. The show still stands as one of the funniest animated shows and I think, a little ahead of its time. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on May 19, 2010, 11:15 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Oh MAN...I absolutely LOVED this show, and I somehow missed the original MTV run (probably because by that time I refused to watch MTV anymore, yeah that was it) and only saw the edited reruns on "The N". IMO it wasn't so much the appearance of Tom as it was Daria turning into every other lovestruck chick and then the show ending when the ENTIRE TIME her character was all about mocking people like that. Plus, she broke up with Tom anyway when they were picking colleges so what was the point of The Kiss? I guess the reason I liked the show so much was because in high school I *was* Daria, only male, my best (and only) friend was Jane, but also male, and my younger sister was Quinn to the hilt. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:00 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Yeah I think when Tom was added too. I think he was here from the beginning of the show, people would have gotten use to him and they wouldn't be as uncomfortable with a new person coming in (For example, like a peason who she hates but still hangs around or friends who have love interest in each other but don't push the curb). Some of the early Tom episodes were funny (like where Daria trys to dye Jane's hair and she screws it up) but Tom was more of a moody, whining jerk than to Daria. When they declare their love for each other in the car and kissed was the boned the fish point -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 17, 2010, 10:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 They never should've added Tom. He became Petruchio to Daria's Katherine. (If you don't get this reference, go read a book!) -- Submitted By: (Melissa) on December 7, 2009, 4:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
