Alternatively: being unable to get a date as a sign of failure vs being unable to get a date as a sign of superiority.

And why isn't Daria acknowledged as one of the greatest things ever?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Friday, 20 September 2002 08:26 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Surely they are both essential as they are a metaphor for the dualistic nature of humanity.

I knew a guy from Finland who had the misfortune of looking like Beavis AND Butthead. He had the worst features of both.

Huh huh, huh huh

Daria was pretty great, and got screwed over by Mtv, but I still gotta go with Beavis and Butthead. Miss them both.

Alternately: being unaware of one's failure as a sign of superiority vs. being aware of one's superiority as a sign of failure.

Daria was kind of hot so I like her.

And popular band The Chicks have a song about her.

So Daria wins.

Daria wins - for the Opie-ated beauty of its graphic line, and also for... Jane

I'm with Daria, both visually and character-wise. And good God voice-acting wise: the mere thought of the Asian girl from Quinn's Stepford-students friend-group makes me die laughing.

If I were in love with a Daria character, it would actually be Quinn's friend Stacy, the one who tries so adorably hard to keep up.

If Daria did videos I would be all for it, but Beavis and Butthead did too many classic moments commenting on Pavements' dirty bathtub and how they could rock if they only tried or Tom Waits playing under a table or even Morphine.

B+B >>>> Daria. Daria = smug, self-satisfied sums her up, but most fatally, not very funny. B+B OTOH alarmingly accurate portrayal of suburban youth with access to too much sugar and MTV and VERY FUNNY INDEED. No one has ever explained the mystery quiet/loud dynamic more eloquently.

the thing that kind of pissed me off about "daria" is that daria herself was a pretty ridiculous character. i mean do YOU know anyone who never displays any emotion whatsoever and speaks in nothing but tart little bon mots? it felt a little too much like we were being asked to sit back and marvel at what a bright little non-conformist she was.

Well, there weren't any gross diplays of inhumanity....just that he was a bit of a testy, paranoid, easily irritable guy.

I find "Beavis & Butthead" unfunny in the same way I found "All int the Family" unfunny -- sure it's accurate, but that's more depressing than funny.

Uh, sure I do! It isn't that she displays no emotion - it's there but done in a subtle way b/c masked most of the time. I thought it was pretty good at getting the way people are oblivious & think nothing bothers her.

I've been watching Beavis & Butthead episodes gleaned from the net, complete with all of the videos, and I've been surprised by how hilarious they are. I think I remember my opinion veering between indifference and chagrin when the show was originally on. As a presentation of (as latebloomer so perfectly stated) 'low-key nihilism', it's akin to The Soup minus the witty banter, allowing us the option of laughing or weeping as the world goes down the terlet.

The universe details a world ravaged by a virus known as "The Sickness" which was released during the events of the movie, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.

It’s a strong likelihood the show’s pop soundtrack won’t make it to the DVDs – the very few releases so far have either replaced it with generic background music or nothing at all. It probably won’t matter to most, but I watched the series a lot on original broadcast and will always associate certain scenes with the music – Monaco’s “What Do You Want from Me” playing when Daria dressed up as Quinn, for example.

- "MTV2 Legit" = one hour a week of Beavis & Butthead, the Max, Aeon Flux, the State, and old MTV bumpers

I did too, but it's sort of unsatisfying -- it's mostly Beavis & Butthead w/o the videos, which isn't that good; the Max and Aeon Flux stuff is cut up into tiny out-of-context bits that are just like general reminders of what they were like; and my enjoyment of 90s MTV programming does not extend to needing to have Coolio videos on my DVR

Yes, it was pretty disappointing -- it would be better if they expanded it, and included full episodes of B&B and Liquid Television. It's not like there's a lot of people flocking to MTV2 on Friday nights.

ten months pass...

So has anybody else got the Daria DVD set? The whole music issue hasn't turned out so bad - the replacement soundtrack captures the feel of the original, though in a couple of cases it jars (like in the "Everybody Hurts" video reference).

The extras are fun, but a bit scanty; there's barely anything to the cast interviews.

But it's great to have the entire series on top-quality DVD.
