  • good

    malcolm gets a girlfriend but he gets too jealous when she is with another guy, will they remain an item?

    francis is put in jail, and the cops live a soap opera-y life.

    dewey gets a friend and helps his mom plan a party. but is the party for dewey's friend or dewey?

    good episode, for once i actually enjoyed dewey's plot, mostly because i was expecting dewey to actually care when ronnie yelled at him. overall, a somewhat enjoyable episode, but also kind of boring in some parts, so i think my overall grade for this episode is a B or somoreless
  • Not good.

    Average is the only word that can describe how I feel about this episode. I don't thnik it was bad but in no way do I feel like it was good. Malcolm is just a bore when an entire episode is dominated by him. I have to say that all of the show was about him and his weirdo girlfriend. It was actually a relief because I am gald that we didn't get to see her face! My very few bright moments of the show was when Malcolm got her sick on peanuts. That was actually the only funny part. Stupid, annoying Malcolm. Thank you.moreless
  • Good!

    Malcolm gets a new girlfriend, Sarah. He is totally obsessed with her and is all he thinks about. His grades slip up because of her. Francis is put in jail when he tries to get food out of a dumpster. The jail becomes a like a television show for him. The sheriff's wife is cheating on him and there's a mysterious murder that needs to be solved. When he is let free, he is sad because he wants to keep watching the drama of the jail. Sarah breaks up with Malcolm because he is too clingy. Dewey makes a friend and he ruins his surprise birthday by making the theme cowboys: something Dewey loves and his friend hates.

    This episode was pretty good! I wish we could've seen Sarah's face. I recognized Cristine Rose, who is in Heroes. This episode gets an 8.5 out of 10!moreless
  • Malcolm gets a girlfriend...

    In this episode, as the names suggests, Malcolm gets a girlfriend. The episode is cleverly done, with features such as never revealing his girlfriends face, and Francis's plot of being locked in jail and watching events from his jail cell like a soap opera. Other story lines include Dewey exploiting his new rich kid friend, which although isn't that good a story line, ties in well with Malcom's in the end, when he ruins "Dewey's party".

    I'd say this is a great episode with Dewey's birthday memories, Malcom's paranoid behaviour which drives him to beat up a foreign exchange student, and his dramatic breakup.moreless
  • ...well...

    We finally find out how does Malcolm treats things when he has a girlfriend, he acts completely paranoic, schizophrenic, and on top of all, with jealousy. Malcolm tries to convince himself that is not the fact but is the true, and at the end he ends up with no girlfriend thankst to his stupid jealousy. Well, I kind of like this episode really much, it was somehow funny, its good.

Is this who you want to be? You want to be some little lap dog who ruins his life for some girl? For god's sake Malcolm, you beat up a foreign exchange student! Poor little Zadoc left his country to get away from this kind of abuse.(Malcolm stares) Are you even listening to me?!
      Malcolm: Yes, I'm listening! But you know what, mom? I've got bigger problems! You may not have noticed, but I've been screwing up a lot lately. All because of some stupid girl! I'm on probation! I beat up a kid who doesn't even speak English! I'm going through a lot right now, and you don't even care!

    • Malcolm: It's none of your business! It's nooooobody's business!! It's not a big deal, okay??!!
      (everyone stares)
