Top Ten Message Board Posts on May 12, 2010

So, what will the fans be talking about the day after Daria is finally released on DVD? Sure, it will probably reignite some serious discussion about various episodes and story arcs, but what, specifically, will people have to say about it? Here are my own predictions:

10. You know, with the digital re-mastering and high-resolution, you can really see Daria shove her tongue down Tom's throat in "Dye! Dye! My Darling!"

9. Um, what exactly did Glenn Eichler mean when he said the musical episode was based on Citizen Kane?

8. What was everyone else's favorite deleted scene? Mine was the alternate ending of "A Tree Grows in Lawndale" where the cheerleaders' seance brings Tommy Sherman back to life as a zombie.

7. Hey, watching the episode in super-slo-mo, I just realized that Trent copped a feel during that scene at Axl's in "Pierce Me." You'd think Daria would have said something.

6. Wait, so that Mystik Spiral spinoff was going to be a gritty crime drama with lots of hardcore sex and violence?

5. I just realized that if you loop O'Neill shaking his butt at the very beginning of the "Is It Fall Yet?" opening sequence and watch it over and over and over go completely blind.

4. Huh. So, according to the commentaries, Daria is a B cup. Guess that settles that, then.

3. Did you know if you play Daria's graduation speech backwards, she clearly says, "And remember, fashion is fun and everything, but we should really do something about the rainforest and stuff"?

2. You guys have got to listen to "Dark Side of the Moon" while you watch "Depth Takes a Holiday"! You'll never believe it!

1. I get that they had to replace the original music, but why would they play Nine Inch Nails' "Closer" during the "Quinn the Brain" makeover scene?

Add your own in the comments!

So, that's why they deleted this scene in My night at Daria's.

Wow, there "where are they now" bonus short sure puts a new spin on some of the characters. Especially the part about Mack snapping and murdering Jodie and her parents.

You all saw that, didn't you? I was right, wasn't I? "I Loathe a Parade" really WAS penguin snuff porn!

I'm glad that you're the one who looped O'Neill shaking his butt.

I'll save that for when I run out of syrup of Ipecac.

I understand they wanted music for the house fire scene, but "O Fortuna" with slow-motion was just overkill.

Quinn's boobs and/or butt isn't big enough :(
