    I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this subject.

    In my opinion nobody does.

    Lois is his mother. She doesn't hate him at all. It's just her hardcore-education that makes it look like if she would.

    And Herkabe doesn't hate him either. He just plays around with him all the time. I think he is trying to teach him in some strange way... He tries to teach him that life is not fair and that he should be careful all the time. He shows him that when you are gifted, your life isn't easier at all. He challenges him all the time.

    Thats an interesting poll.

    I think Arach is right, but to add something, I believe that he probably hates his Mom more, due to the fact that Herkabie is only a person in his life for the short term.

    Malcolm would probably come to realise that when he has finished school, he will never see his teacher again; where as his Mom is with him for life.

    Did I get it wrong? Did you mean from Malcolms point of view?

    I think so.

    I think he neither hates Lois nor Herkabe. I mean if he really hated his mother he wouldn´t have driven that golf car into the pool with his brothers. He just did it because Hal´s family had treated Lois very badly before. But he definitely thinks that she´s very annoying.

    I don´t know what he thinks about Herkabe. Wasn´t there an episode where he referred to him as a psycho? I think he doesn´t care enough about Herkabe to hate him. He probably just thinks he´s a horrible person and an awful teacher (which isn´t very flattering, but I wouldn´t call that "hatred")

    I think he hates Herkabe more, Lois is his mom, there must be some love there. Herkabe is his teacher and he doesn't love his teacher

    Interesting thoughts; yes, arach, I meant from Malcolm's point of view.

    I think I would have to agree with you that the answer must be Herkabe; as dysfunctional and crazy as the family is, and allison pointed this out, they still manage to stand up for one another. Case in point: Family Reunion.

    Malcolm doesn't hate Lois, he never did. Lois is his mother, she's not a good mother but she's not a terrible mother either. Even Francis has never hated Lois. He has often been mad at her, but otherwise he loves her, like Reese, Dewey and Malcolm in spite of the strange relationship they all have with her.

    Francis has a lot of resentment for Lois. He's mentioned it numerous times.

    At the end of the day 'blood is thicker than water' and while Malcolm may think Lois is harsh and unreasonable and sometimes THINKS he hates her, he'll always get over it and they'll all stick together as a family (again, the episode with the golf cart illustrates this perfectly).
    Herkabe is a dickhead - he winds up everyone who crosses his path (especially Malcolm) and Malcolm doesn't take it well. That said, 'hate' is quite a strong word and I don't think Malcolm would wish any harm on anyone.
