My husband is Hal on Malcolm in the Middle. In one episode Hal helps the kids build a killer robot full of bees. My husband would do that. When we were watching the show I know that my husband was kicking himself for not thinking of it first!
This is a sitcom starring...
Malcolm: The brainy brother
Reese: The bully brother
Dewey: The cute but braindead little brother
Francis: The oldest who is a delinquent sent off to military school
Hal: The kid-like dad
Lois: The high strung mom
What I love about this show is the fact that kids, dads, and moms, can relate. As a child I was a Dewey that made myself into a Reese and somehow ended up as Lois. Like I said, I'm married to a Hal and my step daughter is about to be a Francis. Confused yet? You won't be if you watch the show. If you don't get in one laugh before the theme song...Well, you just will.
This show is probably great birth control. People all over see it and say..."What if the next one is a boy too?" It is a reminder of all of the stitches, excuses, burnt furniture, ect... Watch it with your kids, but don't let them get any ideas!
