Time to revive the show. Seriously.
MTV was in talks a year ago to bring it back. Daria even wrote a piece for the Huffington Post last year.
The fandom is massive. The DVD set that was put out in 2010 sold out. They had campaigns to get the show released. They came out with a GPS of Daria's voice too.
Daria's quotes are internet memes now, and people have come up with concept artwork of what the cast would look like now.
MTV wanted more episodes, but the producers decided to call it a day and just make a final made-for-tv move 11 years ago.
I want to see them in college.
What do you think?
A live action movie was in the works starring Janeane Garuffalo. Don't know if she's still attached.
Quinn was hilarious.
The middle daughter of Modern Family is playing the new Daria.
I think people overrated it because they like to imagine they're Daria, too smart for everyone else. It appeals to people's narcissism, similar to those who worship Rachel Maddow. But she ain't all that, and neither are you.
There's no live action version in the works.
I was the same age as Daria when the show was on and Daria WAS the late 90s for me. I can't imagine it out of its element.
I liked her Asian friend Jane.
Ghost World is better.
i was and am a huge fan, but its greatest shortcoming was there never were any gay male characters. there was one somewhat-predatory lesbian, but no gays. Am I the only one noticing this?
It was the 90s. There be no gays in the 90s.
The English (?) teacher seemed gay but then he started hooking up with the angry female science teacher.
I can watch the show in limited doses. The 90s teenaged ennui seems terribly dated, though.
Kids today aren't sardonic enough to appreciate Daria. Pop culture and humor have changed.
LOGO recently had a marathon. Did anyone catch it?
I'd rather watch Daria than endless episodes of Teen Mom!!
LOGO, Trying Anything to Stay on the Air!
If Janeane Garofalo is now attached to a live-action Daria, it would need to be as Daria's grandmother.
She can play the mom. Selena Gomez can play Daria. Anna Camp can play Quinn. Keanu Reeves can play Kevin. Sandra Oh can play Jane. Emma Stone can play Brittany.
Daria ended in 2002.
Daria made numerous gay comments.
Logo is running marathons. Daria and Jane were big ol dykes.
[quote]The fandom is massive.
No hon. No, it isn't.
Yes I noticed it r9, Daria was hyper-liberal about every subject matter but never once said anything pro-gay. The "somewhat-predatory lesbian" was apparently as "pro-gay" as the show got. And aside from Quinn, it wasn't that funny either. Overrated.
I think Trent is the type of guy who fucks alot but is low-key, and laid-back about it.
Jane and Trent were not Asian. God, some of you people are just idiots. (I'm looking at you R16. Fifty-year-old Keanu Reeves playing 17-year-old Kevin?)
Janeane Garofolo could play Daria's aunt, the one that was almost exactly like her. Didn't any of you dopes even watch the show?
If Barbra Streisand at 71 can play Rose in Gypsy with two small children than Janeane Garofolo can play Daria for fucks sake.
Glenn Close, 54, as Nellie in South Pacific circa 2001
I liked it at the time (when I was a kid), but watching it now, it's very flat. Daria is sarcastic, but never legitimately funny.
I like it, but it's so completely of its time. Today Daria would likely be a hipster.
R19 Yep, it was very overrated and I hated this show when I was in high school. And no, they didn't discuss gay issues because the 90's was still VERY homophobic. Don't miss that decade a bit.
I loved the show but I kinda went off Daria, especially after that whole Tom debacle. My favorite was Quinn.
There's an obese Jewish woman I don't like but somewhat know through friends on fb, and she is one of those that is a computer geek, extremely left, and an anime freak. She's totally into Daria. It turns me right off.
Instant case of narcolepsy, that's what this show gave me. I don't even think getting high while watching this show would improve it one bit.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
