So in July of 2010, a great friend of mine purchased Daria: The Complete Animated Series (which had come out two months earlier) for me as a birthday present. I have watched the series through now probably about 8 or 9 times and it is even better than I remember. The jokes feel more relevant, the ideals make more sense to me and the whole show just really makes me pine for the 90s. Speaking of, it's a bit disheartening that for the release of the set it was going to cost too much to use all the original music from the show so the only song kept was the theme song and replaced the other music with some computerised knock-off. But overall this is a great set. It was $49.99 (as seen in the ad to your left) and includes the full five seasons of the show and the two films Is It Fall Yet? and Is It College Yet? As well as bonus features.

Daria: The Complete Animated Series
Since I was a very young girl, rushing home from school on a wednesday afternoon, waiting patiently by the tv until 5:30 and cursing myself the next day if I missed it, Daria has always been a favourite of mine. I don't quite know what at the time intrigued me about this sarcastic, monotone, uncaring angsty teen but something about her kept me from returning a VHS of hers to the video store for over 10 years now.
I recommend this to any Daria fan or television lover.
