Attention, teens of the ’90s! MTV wants you to stop being productive at work, and watch one of their most beloved shows. Just this afternoon, the network uploaded a few full episodes of Daria to their YouTube page, which means that you can watch them for free. Right this second. Like, right now.
Not only are there two freshly uploaded Daria episodes, but there’s one episode of the famous show it’s a spin-off of — Beavis and Butthead.
According to a YouTube comment from MTV, “Keep coming back – more episodes dropping all this week!”
Around two months ago, MTV experimented with a few Daria uploads, but the channel has remained quiet ever since. Lucky for us, the two that they chose for today are pretty fantastic episodes. One is “The Misery Chick,” which deals with Lawndale High football hero Tommy Sherman.
And, the other is a classic — “The Pinch-Sitter,” where we get to see Daria babysit two incredibly polite children.
Sure, we’ve gotten the luxury of having Daria available to us in other ways, but — having these episodes uploaded truly means something. And we needed this today.
For one, it shows that MTV is acknowledging the fact that back in the day, they had some incredible and game-changing programs, and it also shows that they care about making their longtime fans happy.
If you’ve never seen Daria, it’s definitely worth checking out.
For many, she was one of the first female characters on television who truly spoke to them.
The show was also incredibly well written — there was both comedy and drama within every season, and it really didn’t suffer from many weak episodes.
We can’t wait to see MTV upload even more, and we’re so happy that they’re officially giving the show another chance in the spotlight!
