Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that while this animated series provides some important social commentary about teen life, if viewers aren't mature enough to see through its extreme satire, the significance of these messages is easily lost or misinterpreted. Also, while Daria's parents clearly love her, there's almost a complete lack of strong positive adult role models or constructive examples of adult-teen communication. Controversial subjects, such as sexual relationships and drug use, are mocked, and the consequences of these actions aren't fully discussed.
- Sexual Content
- Making out, but no simulated sex. Often contains light sexual humor, including the propositioning of teen girls by teen boys.
- Very limited acts of violence are visible. But there are many references to potential school violence and extreme security measures.
- Mild to moderate: "damn", "hell", "ass," "pissed," etc.
- Social Behavior
- Peer influence and antisocial behavior are central to the show. While diversity is accepted, stereotypes are used to bring attention to social issues. Many negative roles with negative consequences.
- Popular and alternative music is used throughout the show. Few specific references to popular culture icons and musical groups and no discussions of brand-specific clothes, food, or beverages.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Drugs, alcohol, and tobacco are used in some episodes. Any discussion about this use does not look at the consequences of such behavior, especially among teenagers.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
