Jake's ticker halts; Daria snubs DJs
6 August 2016 | by gstockleySee all my reviews

The story begins as two DJs from a local radio station show up outside Lawndale High to begin broadcasting their morning program on location for a week. Apart from playing cheesy pop songs, they reward students with cheap merchandise after asking them what makes them "mental in the morning".

That evening, at dinnertime, Jake loses his temper after Helen reprimands him for putting too much shredded cheese on his taco, which went against his doctor's orders. Ironically, he suffers a heart attack and ends up in the hospital. Because of this, Quinn quickly becomes obsessed with studying the human heart, and Jake's overbearing mother comes by to care for him after he became sedentary.

Now, it's evident that Jake's stress-related heart attack was brought on by negative reinforcement from his no-good father. However, as the story culminates, Jake is revived when Daria reveals his father was dead at his age, and she also publicly humiliates those two obnoxious DJs who have been bombarding her for a week, which I thought was the highlight of the episode.

This episode is highly recommended for any true-blue Daria fan. Not only will it make you laugh, but to some extent, it'll make you think.
