Show Summary

Created and executive-produced by Emmy Award-winning writer Linwood Boomer, this inventive half-hour series is seen through the eyes of MALCOLM (Frankie Muniz), a regular high school kid trying to navigate his way through life despite the various obstacles thrown in his way – a complete misunderstanding of girls, the constant burden of masterminding plans to get himself and his brothers into or out of trouble, and a miserable job at the Lucky Aide… not to mention a severe case of teen angst. Although Malcolm has a genius IQ, he can't seem to make sense of the opposite sex, much less his embarrassing family. Lois (Jane Kaczmarek) is the outspoken, opinionated mom, who still manages to rule the roost even though her boys are growing wise to her crafty ways. Hal (Bryan Cranston), a dad who is just a bumbling, big kid at heart, often finds himself creating more chaos than his five boys combined. Reese (Justin Berfield) has mastered the art of a perfect blank stare, and makes up for his lack of intelligence with deviance. Francis (Christopher Masterson), Malcolm's oldest and favorite brother, is willing to move from Alabama to Alaska to New Mexico – as long as its keeps him from moving back home. Dewey (Erik Per Sullivan), no longer the youngest, has learned his tricks from the best and often pulls the wool right over his brothers' eyes. And then there's Jamie, the newest member … and family scapegoat. Timeslot History on Fox and Global January 2000 - July 2002 .... Sundays, 8:30pm August 2002 - October 2004 ....

  • I Love it


    I love this show and I wish they never stop
  • One of the most OUTSTANDING sitcoms ever made

    This show is funny and I for one admire it. Like "Moesha", I really thought this show was made from Nickelodeon. Frankie Muniz and Bryan Cranston are famous for this show, and if I was a host, I would reward these two for best TV roles. This show only took about 158 episodes, 7 seasons, and 6 years on run. This show is both awesome and funny.
  • Awsome show

    This defunct Family must be one of tvs most awsome families, Dewey is great, Malcolm the same, all of the actors are awsome. No Wonder it made it to DVD years later. Can watch it again and again.
  • Good show

    This show is good. It has lots of funniness and almost all the plots are good plots. If Hal was my father I wouldn't mind having him as a dad. He seems like a cool dad. But if Lois was my mother I seriously think I be ready to go jump off a bridge somewhere. No lie! I like how they added Jamie to the show in 2003. His parents must have been very old for new born parents when they had him since he was the 5th child and 10 years younger than the 4th child. (Dewey) I wonder if he ended up being smart like Malcolm and Dewey or a complete idiot like Francis and Reese.moreless
