Daria Arrives on DVD

Hey MTV, thanks for finally releasing the complete series of Daria on DVD. This is, in all serious, a momentous occasion and a glorious gift unto mankind. In fact, it’s so sublime that it goes a step toward erasing all my horrible memories (read: permanent brain scars) of Laguna Beach, The Hills, Jersey Shore, the last 10 years or so of The Real World, Road Rules and all related spinoffs, any and all dating shows (including but not limited to Date My Mom, NEXT, and Bus Full Of Weirdos Making Out), Cheyenne, that Ashley Simpson show, the show with her older sister on it, the one where Wilmer Valderama stands next to people making “yo mama” jokes, the show where MTV dangles a camera from a fishing line in the middle of a trashy mall food court until 12 episodes worth of footage has been captured, edits down said footage with quick, jumpy cuts, and slaps some MGMT music on top of it, oh – and Tila Tequila. Come to think about it, it’s very, very small step.

But seriously – DARIA! Don’t call me for a week, I’m going to be in a coma on the couch with these DVDs playing back-to-back.

Oh, and read this write-up from TheFader’s Art + Culture blog. They really say it best.
