Underrated: Daria

Let’s flashback to 90’s MTV and spotlight my favorite TV shows leading lady, Daria Morgendorffer.

Daria is my sarcastic soul sister. Literally, the queen of the sarcastic remark. She also represented the people who didn’t quite fit in, and definitely didn’t want to. She is also wickedly intelligent, especially in comparison to some of the other Lawndale residents.

Also, in the entire series there are so many lessons ad looks at real-life situations and how to handle them, like death, heartbreak, life, and the future. Sure, there are some funny quips and one liners, but the messages go much deeper then the surface sarcasm.

Also, Daria highlights the importance of friendship so much with her best friend Jane. Because sometimes the only person who really understands you is your best friend. And even after having a little fall out because of boyfriends, they still maintain best friends. Friendship is also more important than romantics.

And finally, Daria’s wisest words:

  1. Just when I thought I’d heard all the best Daria quotes and I managed to miss the one about pizza! My friends used to say I was a cross between Daria and Angela from ‘My So Called Life’ lol I love how you’ve explained her and the show to people who might not know. It really did cover some very deep stuff, even her quick little witticisms did! ^_^

  3. I loved Daria during my teens years. However, during this time I supplemented with other things like anime. Although Daria was the top of my life I loved anime to pieces. I remember during this time I had a really healthy love for Trigun.
