Format: DVD
MTV's "Daria", loosely spun off from the far-better-known "Beavis & Butthead", is something of an enigma. Who would have thought that a low-budget, crudely-animated show on a network not known for its, umm - intellectual prowess? - would be so thoughtful, engaging and funny?

For the uninitiated, Daria is an intelligent, sensitive introvert, recently arrived at Lawndale High. The quintessential outsider, she is constantly at odds with the hypocrisy she sees in her peers and teachers. To add insult to injury, her younger sister Quinn is a bubbly and popular girl around school. Fortunately, she quickly befriends another outcast, the artistic Jane Lane, who makes the absurdity of her high-school life bearable. While Daria overcomes adversity through sarcasm and wit, the show reserves some of its most biting criticism for Daria herself, and the unrealistically high standards to which she holds herself and others - it is at times merciless on its own protagonist. Daring, and not exactly what one might expect from a spin-off of a comedy that got most of its laughs from repeatedly using the word "wiener".

Of note is that the episodes presented here are presented without the songs as originally broadcast. This is unfortunate, and somewhat jarring at times, but the producers of the show really didn't have much choice - there are many, many songs used throughout the run of the show, and as explained in the liner notes, it would have been prohibitively expensive to secure the rights to all those songs. I do wish I'd known that before purchasing it, but it would not have been a deal-breaker. The show stands well on its own.

The positive side of this decision is that MTV have made this set available to fans at a very reasonable cost (at the time of writing).

Contains all episodes plus the two movies. Many episodes per disc and opening credits cut, only the first episode on the disc has the full intro. Only complaint: many of the original songs not included (for licensing reasons). Other than that: excellent buy.

The character Daria was actually first created on Beavis and Butthead as a side character but became so extremely popular that she got her own television show. Daria, at the time (and still is), is an unusual television show with aired on MTV with the fact that it made fun of everything MTV stood for. The show was so different in its time that it created an extremely loyal and dedicated fanbase. The show ran from 1997 to 2002 and stayed silent, until 2010 when this DVD series was released.

The show is about an extremely sarcastic teenaged girl named Daria trying to survive through high school with as little social interaction as possible. Along with her clever wit and her friend Jane, she journeys through the trials and tribulations that high school has to offer.

This set comes with all 65 episodes as well as the unused pilot and the 2 movies. There are also many extras such as the 'Daria Day' openings as well as interviews with the cast members.

A major thing this set is missing is all the original music. Unfortunately, due to many licensing issues, almost all of the original songs had to be taken out of the show but in my opinion it is not a total loss. The humor and personality of the show still shine without the music and the producers have attempted to replace them with dummy versions which aren't so bad. Overall, Daria: The Complete Series is a definite purchase for those who were fans of the series and recommended for those new to the series.

The unique and cynical Daria experience is complete with this collection. The only downside being most of the original songs got taken out, it's a fair price to pay for the beautifully depressive lines Daria delivers.

This show is wonderul and actually fascinating to watch as I find it to have much more depth than most animated series - it has a lot more depth than most non-animated series for that matter. The collection has all the episodes and the movies as well as a handful of extras. I didn't find the lack of some of the original music to be an issue - in fact, I didn't really notice it at all. I definitely recommend this show and set.

I was in my early teens when this show was airing and I got to liking it quite a bit because it was so much different from the other brainless garbage that MTV was flaunting at the time. Not to mention a lot of the family dynamics; the clueless/angry dad, the busy body mother, the dull-witted narcissistic sibling, reminded me a lot of my own.

This DVD is a good thing to have if you liked the show a lot. They did cut out all of the music, but it didn't make much of difference to me, considering most of the songs they had playing on the TV had nothing to do with what was going on in the show.

One thing that did disappoint me is the fact that they didn't even bother to release a HD version. ie: 1280*720p. Instead they 4:3 released the TV version 4:3 with a resolution of only 720*480. But from what I understand MTV gave them a very low budget to work with on the release.

Delivery was very fast, but the plastic cover over the front cover was all out of sorts from the packaging, but not nothing putting it underneath one of those old encyclopedia's can't solve.
