The people of Lawndale just don’t get Daria Morgendorffer. She’s cool with that.See, Daria was born alienated, and now she’s just trying to make it through highschool with as little human contact as possible. Popularity, friends, activities…whatever. Daria lacks enthusiasm, but she makes up for it with sarcasm. Includes all five seasons plus both movies!

And this is my release of the week! A truly awesome show that helped me waste many an hour.
