Daria's Style of Humour

Would you like to see more shows use Daria's style of humour (cynical/sarcastic)

    Personally i would like to see more shows with Daria's style of humour... wondered whether anyone else felt that way? It seems its not a common humour found in shows, and when it is, it's usually just one character's style amidst another characters show- e.g you'll have a sarcastic Daria-esque personality as a barely used background character rather than the main character.

    I think House has this kind of humor - that's first show that comes to my mind.

    I think there have been a few "smart" shows that have been on TV since "Daria" aired. Off the top of my head "Gilmore Girls" comes to mind, though there have been several others (I'm too tired to think of others right now ). And if you're an animation fan you should check out an older show called "The Critic". It has a lot of the smart humor that "Daria" has, which is probably why it didn't last too long on TV but has a very strong cult following.

    It's alright. I wouldn't mind watching other shows that use it.

    I've seen a lot of old shows that use sarcastic humor.
