The 'snippy' episode...
7 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode features Jane and Daria at their snippiest. The episode is filled with tension and resentment and is among the least comedic of any of the "Daria" shows. This is not to say it's bad--it has its charms.

Daria and Jane have a multimedia report to do. However, when Jane meets Tom, she blows off the assignment and leaves Daria in the lurch. As for Daria, she also is pretty obnoxious. She IMMEDIATELY hates Tom and makes no bones about it. Obviously there is a lot that is unsaid between Daria and Jane--and this episode is probably more responsible than any other for sparking a long dialog on the internet about gay vibes between the girls. Perhaps this is why Logo now carries this show. All I know is that the writers clearly intended Daria to be struggling with jealousy--what's behind all that is sure up to individual interpretations. There could be the gay subtext, Daria could just feel panic at the notion of losing her only friend or they are just being insane hormonal teens!

While this is not a funny episode, it is important as it ushers in a major change in the plots for season four and five. It also makes the two leads seem more real--with many hangups and foibles that you've previously not see on their usually seemingly secure exteriors.
