    Hal Quits! But that's just me.

    So far, "Hal Quits" is in the lead for the comparison then!

    In the meantime, here are the complete differences between the original, and syndicated versions of "Company Picnic".

    Original version lasts for 45 minutes (roughly) and is not split in to 2 parts.
    Credits last longer on the original version (Right up to Francis' first scene)

    Scene order difference
    First act identical
    Original (From 13:51):
    • Lois Backing away from Meg

    • Dewey fights with some kid over candy

    • Ice hockey preperation

    • Francis' "bet"

    • Start of the hockey game

    • Reese & George random pairing

    • Malcolm admits he likes Laurie

    • Laurie and Malcolm "Joke without a J"

    • Dewey filling up on Bread

    • Hal hiding around the cubicles

    • Lois gets trapped in a cubicle to avoid Meg

    • Hal "Mr. Landon" puts minds at ease

    • Lois still trapped in cubicle, tries to find way out

    • Reese & George try to find a fork

    • Half time locker room scene (Missing in Syndicated Version)

    • Reese & George beat the kids up to steal the items

    • Dewey attacks another kid over candy

    • Meg's husband confronts Lois

    • Francis joins the hockey team

    Everything else is identical from this point onwards
    *Presumably, the end credits are a little longer, or have more credits to show.


    The syndicated version has a completely different scene order, as well as some cuts.
    Italicized lines are the ones that were cut.

    First act identical
    Syndicated (Part 1) (Also from 13:51):
    • Ice hockey preperation

    • Francis' "bet"

    • Start of the hockey game

    • Lois backing away from Meg

    • Dewey fights with some kid over candy

    • Dewey filling up on Bread

    • Hal hiding around the cubicles

    • Lois gets trapped in a cubicle to avoid Meg

    • Reese & George random pairing

    • Malcolm admits he likes Laurie


    Syndicated (Part 2):
    • Recap added

    • Opening Theme added

    • Laurie and Malcolm "Joke without a J" (Credits added)

    • Ice Hockey "Down by 2 goals" - CUT (First 2 shots missing)

    • Hal "Mr. Landon" puts minds at ease

    • Reese & George try to find a fork - CUT

      Reese: You know a fork. The little thing, with...things! Jeez!
      George: My eyes are tired.
      Reese: Hey why don't we go to a snack bar? They've got tonnes of forks there!

      George: You go. I'll stay here.

    • Back to Ice Hockey. Lavernia joins in - CUT

      Francis spraying the face towels with mace, and all references to them being used by anyone else.

      Lavernia: It's right there! Get it! Get it! What the Hell's wrong with you guys?! The puck's right in front of you!
      Artie: My eyes are stinging like crazy!
      Francis sprays a towel with mace, and passes it to a team member.
      Francis: There you go, Chad. Wipe off that sweat!

    • Reese & George beat the kids up to steal the items

    • Meg's husband confronts Lois

    • Francis joins the hockey team

    Everything else is identical from this point onwards
    *Presumably, the end cretis are a little shorter, or have fewer credits to show.

    I'll go along with "Hal Quits" then, but with "Bowling" a close second!

    I'd also like to add your screenshots to our Gallery, if you don't mind.

    The point is, we don't have a lot of widescreen captures, and because a lot of them were taken from old 'teenie' fan sites, they are mostly very boys-centric, not to mention Frankie-focused, which is a bit of a shame, especially to Jane and Bryan.

    Richiepiep, I don't mind that personally, and I wouldn't have thought Magic-J would mind either, but I shall give him a nudge and let him know you've asked!

    Fine!

    I'll credit you, of course.

    Malcolm season 3 is coming soon in France !

    http://www.malcolm-france.com/news.php?id=390

    malcolm_dvdfrsaison3-coffret.jpg

    New packaging, a digibook (16-page booklet) written by Malcolm-France.com, containing an episode guide and a Malcolm abecedarium full of anecdotes about MITM and season 3.

    And also an exclusive interview of Linwood Boomer made a few week ago by Showshank Films with our help (we sent them some sophisticated questions )

    DVD will be released on September 2.

    Thanks for the great news, Alexandre!

    The French set of DVDs is a truly special and creative set, and a credit to your site, the French fans and the other collaborators!

    I hope you can keep up this high standard for the upcoming releases - I noticed on your site, that Fox again wasn't forthcoming at all, so you had to create your own bonus features. It's just weird that such a huge company can't spend a few hours to please fans the world over. Ah, you'll show them!

    And by the way: bon anniversaire!

    I really love the personal touches on these French releases. Because Fox didn't put any effort into releasing bonus materials, the French fan club created their own booklet with an illustrated episode guide, and an imaginative series ABC.

    http://malcolm-france.com/news.php?id=396

    I could make out:

    A is for Alaska (Francis' job)
    B is for Bernard the Hamster
    C is for Croissance (the boys growing up)
    D is for Delinquency
    E is for Emancipation (Francis becoming an adult)
    F is for Francis
    G is for Grossesse (Jane's pregnancies)
    H is for Herkabe
    I is for Interdit (unsuitable for viewers under 14)
    J is for Jeunesse (the parents' younger days)
    K is for Kitty Kenarban
    L is for Linwood Boomer

    It really looks nice, and makes the set a fine keepsake (and present) for fans.

    Well, I know it's been a few months so I apologise for taking my time to get back to you all with the Season 2 screenshots I promised in May. Life's been tough, but I've finally found the disc the episodes were stored on, and I've sent them over to Magic_J who will be adding them to the corresponding photo albums shortly!

    I've been in touch with Showshank the past few months, and they've informed me that they DID find the original version of Company Picnic, which was too late to include on the Season 3 release, but they assured me that it will be included on the Season 4 release as a bonus feature! Which I'm delighted to hear about, and I'm sure everyone here will be just as happy to hear it

    Magic_J has also informed me that there's not much difference between the UK and FR season 3 releases picture quality-wise, but I imagine he'll bring you more detail on that.
