    After Reese and Malcolm try to sneak out to the Burning Man Festival, Lois and Hal find out and make it a family vacation. There, anyone can do whatever they feel. It's a place of freedom and self-expression. Reese takes to it wholeheartedly. Lois and Jamie also seem to enjoy it. Hal has borrowed his boss' RV and doesn't want anything to happen to it. Dewey has to spend his time cleaning it. Malcolm meets an older woman and they have sex. She tells him that they can't see each other, so Malcolm tries to get her back, but it doesn't work. When it comes time to burn the man (wooden), Reese is selected to do it, but he doesn't want to. Instead, Reese throws the torch and makes the RV explode.

    This episode was okay! It was really weird and didn't make too much sense. It was like a big cult! I can't believe Malcolm had sex! I don't agree with that until after marriage. This episode gets a 7.5 out of 10!
