Typical, but interesting "Behind the Scenes" Special
11 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Actually, the version of "Behind the Scenes at Daria" that was shown after "Is It Fall Yet?" was an edited version from it's original airing prior to Season #4, which was being used as a filler. If you're looking for more detail about the making of Daria, you'll find it there. Though typical of your average "behind the scenes" TV-special, most of what was posted in the previous comment was right on the money. The REAL highlight was a segment where Wendy Hoopes gives us her impressions of Jane Lane, and then Quinn & Helen Morgendorffer(even though it looked like she was going from Quinn to Helen in two separate takes), which was cut from the version shown after IIFY?. You'll also find how Brittany Taylor was created(a piece of trivia I once tried and failed to submit to IMDB). Tracy Grandstaff's(Daria Morgendorffer) remark about people's desire for something intelligent on MTV may seem self-congratulatory, but it's well deserved. And yes, the staff is very attractive, including Amy Palmer, Karen Disher, Olivia Ward and even Grandstaff, who could easily be mistaken for a fashion model...something that the teen queen of sarcastic wit would be a little uneasy about.
