Good episode but very sad
16 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love the series Daria, but one of its problems is that it darts around a lot. Some episodes are just zany antics and are not trying to be based in reality. Other episodes deal with serious social issues and stir emotions. This episode stands above all the others as the darkest.

It seems to have a slow start, with a new fridge being installed and a lot of talk about a cardboard box left in the garden. Daria remembers playing in a box as a kid. She gets upset when her mum says that she doesn't remember Daria doing much playing at all. Bit by bit, Daria remembers how she put stress upon her parents' marriage by her unusual behaviour and her difficulties with making friends.

There are two parts of this episode where I felt Daria's pain. The first came when Quinn remembers the same story about their parents' fight. The second was when Daria hugs Jane, which did not happen in any other episode.

It's a good story, and provides more information on Daria's childhood and inner turmoil. This was the last in the series of regular episodes, but there was a light-headed TV film to wrap everything up. I can't help but wonder whether they only made the TV film because they decided that this episode was just too morbid a note to end on.
