Daria - The Misery Chick
There are not too many TV shows that Beth likes that both Michel and I also like. Beth and I like a lot of mystery shows such as Nero Wolfe but Michel has no interest in them. One show that we all enjoy is Daria which used to be on MTV eight years ago and is now on The N in reruns. Daria is a high school girl who is really smart but is surrounded by fellow students who are interested only in their looks and their sports teams. Daria Morgendorffer is probably the most cynical person on the planet and because of her attitude everyone thinks of her as the "misery chick" even though she really isn't miserable. Daria's sister is a member of the fashion club, the school group whose main concerns are clothes and makeup. (Michel does a great imitation of Sandy, the president of the fashion club.) Each episode follows Daria as she attempts to get through another day of high school. The main problem with the show is that it is on at 4 in the morning and isn't available on DVD! So we tape it. If we had Tivo life would be easier.
