  • There was a hot girl.

    8.5
    Although this was a good episode, the thing that made it really good was the hot girl Malcolm was hitting on. She was smoking hot and it made the episode entertaining. Aside from that element, the show had some really good comedy and it was well written. My favorite parts of the show had to be where Malcolm walks into the dinner drunk and throws up on the meal. I thought that he would never see the light of day again, but who knows? Another part I liked was the preperation of the meal. It made me hungry just watching all the food being made. Thank you.moreless
  • Just great! This episode showed again why we love Malcolm and his family so much. They're just the quirkiest live-action family on TV.

    9.8
    This episode has all the elements why we watch this series:



    Malcolm decides to go to a teen party instead of celebrating Thanksgiving with his entire family. He gets completely wasted and makes out with a girl.



    Reese is trying to create the perfect Thanksgiving dinner, throwing into the scale all his cooking skills. He's got his Dad and Dewey to help him but they gradually give up when it turns ous that Reese is just too much of a 'perfectionist'.



    Francis and Piama are having a serious fight and Francis even thinks about getting a divorce. Lois promises not to intervene but finally she does and brings them back together.



    Finally, everyone is sitting around the perfectly laid dinner table and Reese is serving the gourmet meal. At that point Malcolm shows up completely drunk and ruins it by puking all over the deliciously displayed foods.moreless
  • Thanksgiving!

    8.4
    Reese wants to make the perfect Thanksgiving buffet and keeps asking Hal and Dewey to the impossible for the food and only keeps convincing Hal by taking taste of the great food he is preparing, meanwhile Francis and Piama come to home in a row and think about divorce, but until Lois puts in the middle the marriage is back to normal, while Malcolm skips out the dinner to go to a party where he ends up drunk and also a girl there offers him sex. This episode was sort of great in the part between Malcolm and everything, especially when he pukes in the turkey.moreless
