Daria on DVD

19May10

MTV have just released all five series featuring of Daria on DVD, which means I don’t have to watch it on YouTube anymore. It’s probably as exciting as when my dad gave me the My So Called Life boxset.

In a similar acerbic way as Ghostworld’s smart one liners (most memorable being Enid’s darkly comic ”He better watch out or he’ll get AIDS when he date rapes her”) and Juno’s candid ruminations on life, Daria’s quips are mostly delivered in a sardonic monotone, a respite from the squawks of the cheerleaders and moronic high school idiots that surround Daria and best friend Jane.  You watch suburbia, the mall, high school and frat boys through Daria’s eyes, who spots every petty or arbitrary or ridiculous convention for what it is and is always ballsy enough to verbalise it.
