Storyline

In this special episode, we see what would happen if Lois took the kids bowling and what would happen if Hal took them bowling. Lois keeps the kids under tight watch, making Malcolm's night miserable, since he's the worst bowler in the group; Hal is on the verge of a perfect game, Reese ticks off the wrong guy and runs for his life, and Malcolm finds a girl who is attracted to him.

Very clever
5 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a very cleverly done episode. It alternates between two time-lines: one where Lois takes Malcolm and Reese bowling, and one where Hal takes them. The other parent stays home with Dewey, who is being punished and must go to bed early and stay there. It's fascinating to see the differences in each scenario, and how in many ways, the experience ends up being the same after all. Who wins in this episode?
