    The first episode I watched was Old Mrs. Old. Mrs. Griffin was cool because she covered for Malcolm, although she made him do disgusting things. "Your hands are small." It was the first time I saw a kid carrying a purse to school and other kids acting out A Streetcar Named Desire. I've watched reruns since then. I feel less lucky for watching the show after it ended because I didn't get to see how the characters grow. For example Flashback would mean more to someone who has watched the whole series. I can see how fans get really attached to MITM-- as my friend says how can you not like them?

    I became hooked on MITM, from my friend alison. She was obssesed and for months she talked of nothing else but MITM, she got me watching it. I'd seen it before, but this time was different, i watched more episodes and came to enjoy it so much that i joined these amazing forums.

    Time to bring this thread back to life!

    Ok so I started watching Malcolm in the Middle in the summer of 2013, after the first episode I became hooked watching 4-5 episodes a day. After 3 months of watching the show I finished and I've been truly addicted ever since, in the past year I even introduced my brother to MITM. To this day I have watched the show in full 3 times and I still watch the show several times monthly! Easily one of the best shows ever made!

    I watched the series when Season 2 aired the first time, I was pretty young and my TV schedule was kinda dictated by my parents who didn't care for the show all that much. The first episode I vividly remember was Carnival, and I remember a huge chunk of Season 3 and almost everything from 4-7. But as time wore on, I kinda forgot about the show. I wasn't super big into looking back to shows I use to watch. When I was 18, my family subscribed to the big streaming sites (Netlfix, Hulu, and Amazon) and I browsed through Netflix shows, stopping on Malcolm in the Middle. This was not long after I had finished the entire series of Breaking Bad (which I watched every Sunday for the 4th, 5th, and 6th seasons) and I had totally forgotten that Bryan Cranston had started in Malcolm. From episode 1 on I was addicted. I had a pretty rough senior year and didn't have many friends outside of my girlfriend so the show was a great escape from all of that. I tried soooo hard to get her into it but I doubt she watched it outside of the episodes I forced her to watch like Water Park or Bowling.

    I know what you mean, it seems like people today can't watch these "older" shows, I personally think it's a fantastic show and I'm 18, I've tried to show it to friends but they have little interest but my family enjoys watching an episode occasionally. This is one of those shows that after 16 years is still great and feels new. (Even after watching many repeats of episodes!)

    Almost forgot welcome to MITM VC and enjoy your stay!

    It's pretty bad when something from the 90s/2000s is considered "old." My sister really liked the show when she would come in and catch an episode. My parents seemed to find it funny even though being really indifferent to it when it first aired. One of my above mentioned girlfriend's friends who was a HUGE Breaking Bad fan and had rewatched it like 3 times in a row (it got to a point where he was missing class to watch the show or watching it in class) and he even saw the 2014 Godzilla for the SOLE reason that it had Bryan Cranston in it. I told her one time "hey it would be really cool if he watched Malcolm in the Middle, it's got Bryan Cranston and it's a great show" and this was by the time she had seen it, and she was just like "Ehh I don't think he would like it."
