I will give this a chance if MTV promises to look into Clone High season two. :)

Never watched Daria/barely watched Flux. I dont see that changing.
Now, if they re-did their Spidey cartoon...

Those shows very nicely represented an era for me. I don’t know that I’ll watch, but I hope both are as solid as the originals

Daria was so era-specific. I dunno if the same thing would work today. Okay, so "girls like shitty guys as long as they're in bands" and "High School sucks" are omnipresent tropes in real life, but still.

^^^man, Daria just reeked (not in a bad way i guess) of that era, yeah.
Still, if the show can recapture the dry wit, then skewering today’s pop culture and social trends should pretty much just carry over.

I think Darla will fail nowadays with so much non conformist stuff in current times as opposed to back then. I never was a fan of Aeon Flux but if done right could have bad ass visuals.

Interesting point on the nonconformism. Maybe it’ll find a younger audience?

 Hmm yeah I guess that could be a good thing too currently.

Daria *could* work today, given all the new issues relating to today's HS generation.

It wouldn't be able to do everything the same, but there is definitely enough material
to make the show work. Her character at least, definitely still works, even by today's
standards. With all the shit involving popularity and relevance based strongly around
social media, I can totally see Daria's lethargic personality coming out strong to
ridicule such things.

Now Aeon Flux....ugh, please no. Peter Chung has some of the ugliest animation I've
ever seen, and the premise of the original show, if there even was one, was honestly,
nothing to write home about. There was maybe, what, a handful of good (maybe
passable) episodes? For what it was, it was bold, since there was nothing like it on
American T.V., but last I checked, Chung's Reign The Conqueror wasn't a big deal,
so I'm sure this won't be either.
