Trivia

There is a small recurring joke involving Trent writing song lyrics as he's doing something else (such as driving). He always hits a snag, needing a rhyme for an "ane"/"ame" sound, at which point somebody suggests "My soul's waves of grain" - which is a lyric first performed in a Mystik Spyral song in the second season episode "Ill". This happens both in Daria: Camp Fear (2001) and Daria: It Happened One Nut (1999); in the latter episode, Trent vaguely remarks, "I've heard that somewhere before." See more »

Funny, Smart, and dare I say it,...CUTE(for a cartoon character)!
30 November 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm 34 years old as of this writing, so why do I like this spin-off of Beavis and Butt-head? The sarcasm of Tracy Grandstaff will sting you with laughter, not to mention Miss Morgendorffer's refusal to go along with the "conform-or-die" mentality that's forced upon teenagers, whether it's from her elders, the popular creeps, or the various counter-cultures. Imagine a girl like her in previous decades of teen-dom. Her attitude toward peer pressure is close to the one I had when I was in high school (..and now feel even stronger about), as is her Dad's seething resentment toward the people who robbed him of the "joy of youth."

Long live Daria. If the show doesn't last, may it's legacy do so.
