  • An okay episode.

    7.0
    This was an average episode of Malcolm in the Middle. I thought that the show was lacking a funny, hilarious bit in this one. The writing was okay, the acting was decent, the plots were just average, and the comedy was lacking quite a bit. I did like the plot with Reese helping Stevie get some action with one of the gilrs that come to visit. My favorite aspect had to be where Reese basically tells Dewey to go to the bathroom outside of the bathroom. Overall, this was an okay episode that needed more life, fun, and entertainment with it. Thank you.moreless

    Hal and his buddies play poker. One of the guys, Brian, brings his daugther and her friend over to hang out with Malcolm and Reese and Stevie. Reese and Stevie pretend that Stevie is about to die, so Stevie can score. Malcolm finds out that one of the girls has brought a gun, so he hides it from her. Dewey is kicked out of everywhere. Hal and the guys find out about Stevie and Chandra, while Malcolm tries destroying the gun, which ends in chaos. Francis suspects Piama of cheating, but it's just her dad.



    This was a pretty good episode! I recognized Dana Davis and Lindsey Haun. Dana is in Heroes. I missed Lois. This episode gets an 8.5 from me!moreless

    Something really cool about this episode is about Malcolm and the gun, is really hilarious how does Malcolm manages to screwed up things even tough he is a genius, Stewie fakes mental damage in order to kiss with another girl, Hal, Abe and all his friends begin to do diverse contests that ends up with nothing about poker, and that makes some revelations about them, it is something really cool about this episode is when one of the guys finds out that the other have cheated on each other.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • We learn that Abe is asthmatic as well as Stevie.

    • Goof: As the girl who had the gun starts to smash up Malcolm's things, the first thing she destroys is a silver CD Player, which she throws onto the desk, breaking it into several pieces. She continues smashing several more items, including a yellow tin. After the close up of the yellow tin being stamped on, the CD player can been seen to be back on the desk, intact and in it's original position.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Cop: So let me get this straight. You found a gun. You tried to hide it. You then tried to destroy it but failed, at which point you hid it again. What did you say your IQ was again?

      Abe: What are you doing?
