Hurray Hurray! Daria the complete series is now available on DVD. I watched the show faithfully right up until the final season. When I was in college, it was part of Monday night ritual to eat crap and watch Daria. I would have eaten crap anyway but Daria legitimised it.
And when Daria betrayed her best friend, Jane, I felt like I was watching television history.
And boy, that show has not lost it's punch. I finally was able to see the last episode ever, "Boxing Daria" and I cried. Daria finally confronts her inner demons, she's a brain, the other kids make fun of her and she finds solace in books. Sound familiar?
Then it got me thinking, perhaps I have not changed much. At least Daria had a Jane.
Don't mind me, just feeling misunderstood.
