Boxing Daria: A Dramatic Insight Into A Character (And An Era)

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video is another deep dive in to the sick sad world of Daria, the MTV show that captured the spirit of a sick sad era.

For much of the show, Daria is a harsh, but necessary counter to the absurdities and eccentricities of late 90s Lawndale. When crazy and/or dumb things happen, she’s usually the one to call it out. But in one very unique episode, Boxing Daria, we see a different side of Daria. We see that, beyond the stoic cynicism, there’s some vulnerability that rarely comes out. And when it finally shows in an unexpected way, it makes for one of the best moments of the entire show.
