A great but rather depressing final regular episode...
15 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If you are looking for a funny way to say goodbye to this series, you may just want to skip this episode. Now I am NOT saying it's a bad one all--but it's terribly depressing and may catch you by surprise.

Daria has an existential crisis. It's finally hit her that she has NOT been a terribly easy daughter to raise--with her cynicism and dark personality. It's all stirred up by, of all things, memories that come flooding back when she sees a refrigerator box! However, after moping about and appearing in STRONG need of antidepressants, she has a heart-warming talk with her parents--and this, as well as a traffic accident, snap her out of her crisis.

This was an odd episode for me to watch, as I had a very different reaction the second time I saw it. The first time, I thought it was dreadfully depressing...period. However, a decade later AND after having raised my own version of Daria, the episode really hit home. Being an extremely bright kid can make fitting in really tough--and for anyone in this situations, this episode is a must-see. Clever and very well written despite its dark tone.
