MTV strongly considered releasing "Is It Fall Yet?" in movie theatres during the spring of 2000, via the MTV Films partnership with Paramount Pictures. However, Paramount's research showed that most moviegoers knew nothing about "Daria" to give the film release a chance to succeed, so MTV decided to air the film on their network in August 2000.

Hey, you know, about Tom and all... it'll be okay.
Yeah, some part of me knows that. Some part of me is actually saying that breaking up is right.
Maybe it is.
So how come every five minutes I feel like I'm going to throw up?
I don't know. You haven't been eating out of the refrigerator again, have you?

Through most of season four (beginning with the final episode of season three), there was an undercurrent of tension between Daria, Jane and her boyfriend, Tom. While at first Daria hated Tom, through season four it became obvious that a friendship and perhaps more was blooming between them. And, towards the end of the fourth season, Jane and Tom began to drift apart--leading to this inevitable confrontation episode of "Daria".
Jane wants Daria to help her dye her hair. Despite Daria's repeated complaints that she has no idea how to do this, Jane forces this--with horrible results. Jane is a bit unreasonable here and blames Daria. However what happens next is clearly Daria's (and Tom's) fault. In the next portion, Daria and Tom are talking about how Daria doesn't want to become anything more than friends with Tom because she cares so much for her friend, Jane. Well, in the middle of this, she and Tom end up kissing...twice! Daria feels horrible about this and tells Jane--who then wants to kill her! This leads to a break in their friendship--one that is worked out in the subsequent movie "Is it Fall Yet?".
This particular episode of "Daria" isn't particularly funny--and isn't meant to be. Instead, it's very important to the relationship between Daria and her best friend--and is successful in getting this issue to the fore. Interesting and well worth seeing...but not funny.
