  • Losing a leg is bad.

    I liked this episode and it really was entertaining. I just had a hard time figuring out how Ida survived having her leg severed off. At her age, something so catastrophic would have easily been life threatening. I guess the writers just wanted to keep her in the picture until the series finale? I thought the best moment was seeing the chili Hal was making look like blood. Honestly, who makes red chili? My favorite aspect of the show had to be the war between Malcolm and Reese. I thought that it was a stupid fight and it seemed that nobody would ever win. Thank you.moreless
  • Poor Ida...not!!!

    Ida saves Dewey from an oncoming truck and she ends up losing her leg. Dewey feels bad and wants the pain to go away. Lois is with Ida at her apartment and Francis must come by and help out. He and Ida keep fighting. Malcolm and Reese stay awake hoping to glue the other's face to the floor when they are sleeping. They don't sleep for a few days and end up both getting glued to the floor. Stevie takes advantage. Hal gets Dewey a dog, but the dog eats Ida's leg. Lois apologizes to Francis for all she's done to him.

    This episode was great! It was nice seeing Francis again! He is always funny! I still don't like Ida though. This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10!moreless
