    Re: Reese's speech

    As often happens with Reese, the speech is both sentimental and comical: it shows that very deep down, he has a good heart and wishes he could stop being so insensitive; and it also pokes fun at the...

    Re: Nit-picking

    I've always assumed that church in Day Care is Protestant, because the minister is called "Reverend so-and-so" or maybe it's "Pastor so-and-so," but definitely not "Father so-and-so," which is what...

    Re: What was the greatest Season of Malcolm?

    For pure comedy, Season 2 was my favorite. For dramatic/sentimental content, Season 7 was by far my favorite. In Season 2, the three boys at home were just the right age to be hilarious, and for...
  4. Re: "Graduation" - Lois's Expectations of Malcolm

    True enough, but the climax of the scene is Lois saying to Malcolm "Look me in the eye and tell me you can't do it!" That means she recognizes that Malcolm has to accept her challenge to strive for...

    Re: Reese's Greatest Moments

    Amazing choice of scenes! It included practically all my favorites. The only one I would have added is Reese dancing the samba with that old lady in "Poker 1"--I think it's the funniest 3-second...

    Re: New project for Justin's J2 Pictures

    Here's a snippet from the May 28th Las Vegas Sun, indicating there was quite a competition for the film rights to this woman's life story:

    "Shortly after her booking, movie producers Justin...
  9. Re: Is 2006 the year for Jane Kaczmarek to finally win an emmy?

    Just got around to reading this superb article. What interested me most is the reviewer's idea that the sudden change in that gripping "Lois Strikes Back" scene, from devastatingly emotional to...

    Re: Graduation: Opinions & Analysis

    Just to leave no one wondering what Malcolm was all about, the show came right out and said it:
    Malcolm: "Most of us have been dreaming of this day for years. The day we leave childhood and achieve...

    Re: Underrated

    I assume the reason for this is that Malcolm episodes compete better with other sitcoms in syndication than they do in Fox's broadcasts of original episodes. In the Nielsen Ratings for syndicated...

    Re: "MITM is foul"

    Cheer up! British sitcoms on American public TV have done very well. Most of my friends know who Hyacinth Bucket (Boo-KAY) is. "Are You Being Served" and "Fawlty Towers" have also been extremely...

    Re: "MITM is foul"

    Nice thread with some very thoughtful posts. Let me add that I am skeptical that television has much power to corrupt kids. My experience has been that the dismantling of kids' innocence is mostly a...

    Re: "MITM is foul"

    I think it's an OK review because it states very specifically what material it considers unsuitable for children according to this organization's defined standards. This enables individual parents to...

    You're right. In that last scene he lets slip that what he was really hoping for was a mass apology from the "cool" people. Just to add to your comments, Malcolm has always been conflicted between...

    Re: Morp: Opinions and Analysis

    In the next-to-last episode, the writers chose to focus on what has been, rather than on what is to come. The boys are all portrayed in the grip of the miseries that have plagued them over the past...

    Re: Is this "trivia" true?

    It's certainly not the intention of the writers to show Dewey as being autistic in the clinical sense. Sporadically, when his extreme sense of being deprived and neglected is triggered, he becomes so...

    Re: Cattle Court: Opinions and Analysis

    The showpiece scene, Reese's nightmare trial by his animal victims, is a great example of how this show uses dream scenes to break the routine of showing the same characters in their familiar...

    Re: Most important MITM episode

    I think "Red Dress" is the most important episode because that's the one that really introduces the family as an ensemble. The Pilot episode tells us who Malcolm and Lois are, and it sets the basic...
  20. Re: Stevie in the Hospital: Opinions and Analysis

    There was some very funny and clever writing in Hal's naval war and in Reese's stint as a high-pressure telemarketer. The kid at the lake was petty, obsessed with trivialities, and whiny--a 10-year...

    I'll answer the death question in a personal message. He does use profanity. I even seem to recall an "F" word or two, but can't recall if it's Frankie's character who uses it (a lot of the dialogue...

    I saw it, strictly because of Frankie. I basically liked it even though I don't fit the profile of the intended audience--video game fans (it also helps if you believe in ghosts!). It's scary, and...

    Re: Diabolical Animals!

    I'm not sure moral judgment can be applied to such a primitive creature as a spider, but, if so, the tarantula that bit Hal in "Zoo" was certainly evil. It also apparently had a conscience, as the...

    Re: Hal's Dentist: Opinions and Analysis

    This was a pretty unambitious episode that just aimed for laughs by mining two reliable laugh-getters: Hal going nuts and Reese's ham-handed attempts at being helpful. The broken tooth is a pretext...
