Picks and Pans Review: Daria
Spun off from a character on Beavis and Butt-head, this animated half-hour series follows the adventures—actually, nonadventures—of a poisonously sarcastic teenage girl. Too smart to be engaged by her high school classes, too plain to be taken seriously by boys, too hip to like her parents, Daria navigates her suburban world with incredulous detachment, as if she were sleepwalking through an inane dream. She does not have enough energy even to laugh at her own snide remarks. Tracy Grandstaff, Daria's voice, sounds like Janeane Garofalo. Just the right tone. Visually, though, Daria is misconceived. With her helmet of hair and pursed mouth, she looks like Elaine May.
