Tv Season Info

Beavis and Butt-head's mouthy and sarcastic pal, 16-year-old Daria Morgendorffer, left the boys for her own series. Daria relies on her sardonic outlook to make it through Lawndale High, where her popularity pales in comparison to her sister Quinn's.

Critic Reviews for Daria: Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (11)

A series that was willing to take chances when it came to depicting the teenage experience, and was truly revolutionary in that respect.

Daria was a show that continues to stand out amongst the crowd in a way not unlike the eponymous character. It continues to define convention, and despite showing a little bit of age, remains remarkably fresh. after almost 20 years.

Anyone who ever wanted to opt out of adolescence entirely (writer meekly raises hand ...) could relate.

Top Critic

Rather than worship its all-knowing alternateen protagonists, the series humbled them, persuading them to let their guard down, open themselves to new experiences, and question their gut instincts.

For a while, at least, she was a voice for a generation. A voice that looked upon life and said, "meh."

Personally, this is my all time favorite show; I wish Daria was real. It's like Dawson Creek on drugs.
