You know what bothers me the most about syndicated Malcolm episodes?
- Most of the episodes they don't dare to show the cold opener - THE COLD OPENER! and...
- Even if they do, all of them have a few minutes cut off! For example...
- In the pilot, the cold opener introducing Malcolm's life was cut.
- Pilot - The line with Caroline calling Malcolm a 'suspicious little dickens' was cut.
- Home Alone 3 - The cold opener with the Wilkersons 'happy' dinner was substituted by the boys' squirrel/fire extinguisher debacle from "Krelboyne Picnic" and was made into a 3-parter.
- Lois' Sister - Reese's statement about a idea coming into his mind to get into the Mustang was cut.
- Zoo - Not only was the 'Catch' cold opener cut, but they made the 2 parter into a 3-parter.
- Dewey's Dog - some of Malcolm and Reese's payback statement for Dewey was cut too.
- And there's more cut-offs than I can list here, so tell me...
