Live Video Chat with Bryan Cranston Wednesday!

Bryan Cranston - Live Video Chat!

With major thanks to Richiepiep we have setup a live video chat with Bryan Cranston to celebrate the 10th Anniversary!

Wednesday 3rd February at 3pm PST / 6pm EST / 11pm GMT (UTC)
Live on BlogTV.com

The format will be similar to the video chat he did last year for Breaking Bad – Bryan reading the chatroom and picking questions, however I’ll be “hosting” the chat, so if you can’t make the live time and would like a question answered reply, and I’ll try and get Bryan to answer it. You don’t need a BlogTV.com account to join the chatroom and ask questions (but get an account if you want a chance to be on video)

Watch it live below, but go here to join the chat! Hope to see you all there!

‘Bowling’ Rated 90th Best TV Episode of All Time

Frankie Muniz as Malcolm in Bowling 2x20 Bryan Cranston as Hal in Bowling 2x20

TV Guide has rated 2×20 Bowling as the 90th best TV episode of all time, based on? well nothing, just their opinion but if anyone is to rate TV episodes TV Guide is a good bet, we of course would argue the top 100 would just consist of Malcolm episodes, but then again, we are a little biased! But its great to get the mention.

Renowned TV critic Tim Goodman from San Francisco Chronicle recently asked “Has there ever been a funny family sitcom? Can parenting be funny on TV?”

“Malcolm,” though it lost viewers (but not its creativity) in the latter years, successfully presented a live-action version of “The Simpsons” (perhaps the greatest “family” show ever). The success of “Malcolm” was that it made the difficult, hilarious and stressful nature of raising kids funny and in the process it gave us child actors that didn’t make us wretch at their cuteness. Nothing worse than a 4 year old girl talking like she’s 35.

I’d vote “The Simpsons,” “Arrested Development” and “Malcolm In the Middle” into my upper echelon. I also love “King of the Hill.” But you’d get more points for a live action series with small children (again, I think “Malcolm” is the front-runner there), because that’s a lot harder to pull off.

‘The Middle’ a ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ Rip Off?

The Middle is a new ABC sitcom based around a mother of 3, Frankie (!?) Heck (Patricia Heaton) she’s “middle class in the middle of the country and is rapidly approaching middle age.” Not surprisingly as soon as anyone heard about the show, thoughts turn to Malcolm in the Middle. I find it hard to believe you’d have a quirky (read dysfunctional) family based sitcom called The Middle and not expect everyone to compare it to Malcolm, but maybe that’s what ABC wanted? The next Malcolm in the Middle?

OK, so the title of this post was a bit of link bait I don’t, based on the previews, believe The Middle is a Malcolm rip off, but I had a quick bit of fun matching some scenes in the above video. AOL calls it “a dead ringer for Malcolm in the Middle with its realistic, wry take on regular family life” and they continue saying “little Atticus Shaffer steals the show as younger son Brick”.

It looks to have potential and I’ll be sure to check it out. It debuts on ABC 8:30pm EST, September 30th.

Malcolm in the Middle Now Airing on ‘Nick at Nite’

Nick at NiteBack on June 8th it was announced that Nickelodeon had bought the cable rights to all the Malcolm in the Middle episodes. They are now airing it on their Nick at Nite prime time programming block on Nickelodeon (in the US) which is aimed at an older and family audience. It starts today with an all night marathon from 8pm (Eastern Time) till 1am (then repeated till 6am).

We have conducted a great deal of research with kids and families, and two things that we hear continuously are that they want to spend more time together and that watching television is one of their favorite ways of making that happen…By starting Nick at Nite at 8pm, and adding another terrific comedy series like Malcolm in the Middle, we will serve them further and build upon the great success we’ve had with contemporary family comedies – Cyma Zarghami (President of Nickelodeon)

We don’t often report on when a TV station is showing Malcolm in the Middle mainly because we have an international audience. However this acquisition is great news for MITM, it shows how it continues to be valuable. In 2007 it was also acquired by the US cable channel FX. However this is bigger, Nick at Nite ranks as the number-two US cable network with Adults 18-49 (behind only USA Network) with 1.5 million viewers. Also Nickelodeon has been heavily advertising (something MITM has lacked in the past) on their channels. A quick search on Twitter and you will see many people excited and quoting the TV adverts.

Nickelodeon is a channel in many countries but from what is known this is a US based deal only. Don’t expect to see Malcolm on Nickelodeon elsewhere. Nickelodeon also streams some shows on their website Turbo Nick, however as far as we know this was a cable TV deal only, so we won’t see it online.

Nick have launched a companion website for the show which includes video clips (US only), Message Boards, Character/Actor Bios (brief and not completely accurate) and a basic About page. Nothing exciting, but a good design and nice to see they made the effort.

Its now airing: Sunday 8pm-9, 12am-1 and 2am-3. Monday – Thursday 8pm-9 and 12am-1. Friday at 12am-1 and 4am-5 and Saturday at 12am-1 and 2am-3. (Eastern Times)

The marathon is just season 1 episodes in the following order: 1×01 Pilot, 1×06 Sleepover, 1×02 Red Dress, 1×13 Rollerskates, 1×05 Malcolm Babysits, 1×03 Home Alone 4, 1×09 Lois vs. Evil, 1×07 Francis Escapes, 1×12 Cheerleader and 1×04 Shame.

In the US its been on local broadcast syndication since 2004, sitcomsonline.com believe its local channels syndication will end this year, however I’m not so sure.

Malcolm in the Middle Goes ‘Star Trek’ And So Does Frankie

To celebrate the release of the new Star Trek movie, I thought I’d cut together the Trek-tastic episode 7×14 Hal Grieves. Abe tries to help out Hal with the loss of his father by tracking down some “Classic Trek” stars. It guest starred George Takei who played Sulu in the original series.

Frankie Muniz and his girlfriend Elycia Marie attended the LA premiere of the movie on April 30. See more of the red carpet shots in our GALLERY.

‘Bea Arthur’ Who Danced Fernando With Dewey, Dies

Beatrice Arthur, or Bea for short, star of the 70s sitcom Maude and the 80s series The Golden Girls died Saturday, April 25. She was 86. Arthur died peacefully at her Los Angeles home with her family at her side. She had cancer.

We know her as Dewey’s babysitter in the episode 1×16 Water Park, which won her an American Comedy Award and an Emmy nomination. VC member Rich put together the above tribute video with clips from Water Park. Thanks Rich!

You can download the template print it on a normal sized piece of paper, cut and fold, no glue or tape needed! Or get the plain template from here and make your own MITM character. If you do, post it in the FORUM!

French ‘Dewey’ Song & Club Night!

Dewey Party Poster

This has to be one of the most random Malcolm in the Middle related events of the year. Back in March a French electro group Le Crest held a club night dedicated to Dewey. Also before this they showed their love of Malcolm in the Middle by creating this song, based on the classic scene from season 2 episode 6 Convention when Dewey does a dance and sings the Poupi Poupi/Poupeepou/Boo-Bee (depending on language or understanding) song.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Here is the scene the song is based upon. Keep in mind the above remix is based on the French dubbed episode.

Now, Malcolm in the Middle has many very dedicated fans around the world however for reasons I can’t quite understand Dewey seems to be loved by the French much more than anywhere else and the above scene and song has entered pop culture there.

Thanks to Tyno & Alexandre
