As you can probably tell by the name of this blog, we not only love Daria but also the fictional show-within-a-show, Sick Sad World. The show, featuring curiosities and not-quite-news stories, was a favorite of Daria and Jane and is featured throughout the series. Some awesome person collected all of the Sick Sad World clips and assembled them into YouTube videos by season, so now you can watch all of the weird featurettes promoting the show in one handy place!
Here are some highlights from the first season:
“What do those Supreme Court judges wear under their robes? Declassified government Polaroids next, on Sick, Sad World.”
“Next on Sick, Sad World: The Malibu Primate Diet.”
“Tonight, the Sick Sad World prime-time special with people just like you, only more pathetic.”
What’s your favorite Sick Sad World bit? Let us know in the comments! Eventually we’ll cover all five seasons, so watch the blog posts between books, where we also feature reviews of books we think Daria characters would love (read about our picks for Jane and Mr. DiMartino).
