From Back Cover:

All vile things must come to an end, and for Daria Morgendorffer that means it's time to look beyond high school to college.

Our little girl has grown up so fast. It's time for higher learning, lowered expectations and a heavy dose of sarcasm in this special movie presentation. Follow Daria as she visits a college campus, councils her friend Jane, sets things straight with her boyfriend Tom and comforts her sister Quinn in a college controversy of her own. Dimwitted quarterback Kevin keeps his future plans a secret, but there's no silencing Brittany's dream of cheerleading in the big leagues. It's classic Daria melancholy as she considers her new path to higher learning. Life can't suck more after high school, can it?

My Comments:

Daria - an intelligent and witty spin-off of Beavis and Butthead - came into being at just the right time for me, when I was a sophomore in high school. It takes a fun and poignant look at high school life and pokes fun at the cliques, the jocks, the cheerleaders, and everything in-between. Its lead character, Daria Morgendorffer, is a smart, creative girl who observes and makes fun of the parade of morons around her, while struggling through the typical challenges of teen-dom - crushes, romantic relationships, friendships, academics and more. I only hope that, one day, we'll get the full series on DVD instead of just the two "movies" and the bonus episodes they include.
