One of the best in the series...
11 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While this is not my favorite episode of "Daria" (that would be the paintball episode), it is among my very favorites and one not to be missed.

In the opening scenes, you see the teachers' frustrations with the school's budget and out of date or non-existent supplies. Ms. Li, ever the evil principal, decides to take care of this shortfall by making a mephistophilian deal with Buzz Cola. In other words, for the rights to inundate students with ads for the cola and exclusive rights for the school's machines, the company promises to cut them in for a piece of the profits. However, it's soon apparent that the best interests of the school are irrelevant and the school uses the kids as shills for this product.

Seeing the students and especially Ms. Li as they get looped on this crappy product is THE reason to watch this (it's hilarious to say the least), but the episode's message concerning the way marketing is used and abused on kids make this a very educational show.
