It's true that it's not the same as the original, and I also wish that Trevor Banister had joined, (it would have been great to see him as a hen pecked husband, kind of to make up for his being such a "ladies man") but it was still a great show. It's too bad they didn't continue. I would have loved to see Mr. Humpfries bop Malcom in the hooter! I loved how they showed Mrs. Slocomb's "humble beginnings." Corpral Pompus looked like a bit of a dirty old man, but it was in the name of comedy. And Mr. Rumbold was just as irritating as in the original. Did anyone else notice that some of the guest stars were in the original. Mr. Slocomb was the store detective in Big Brother. Malcom's dad was one of the robbers. Can't remember the name of that episode.
