Storyline

The family have to go to the Krelboyne class picnic. Malcolm doesn't want to go because he has to do an act and doesn't want to look bad in front of his family especially Francis who is home for the weekend. Francis promises to get Malcolm out of doing his act but meets a girl at the picnic and no longer wants to leave. Lois tries to fit in with the other parents unsuccessfully and Hal serves meat from the BBQ even though the Krelboynes all voted that there would be no meat. Reese ends up on the run from eraserheads brother who catches him in the end giving him a wedgie. When Stevie leaves his chemicals with Malcolm, Malcolm desperate to do anything to get out of his act tries to make a stink bomb but ends up making a level 3 toxic bomb. The picnic seems to be ruined until Malcolm guiltily goes up on stage to preform his act. Everyone is amazed by it especially his family. Malcolm fears they will all treat him differently but to his relief nothing has changed. Written by laneykin

Trivia

The term "Kafkaesque" is used by one of the kreylboynes in this episode. "Kafkaesque" is a term Jessie Pinkman uses in season three of Breaking Bad (2008), also starring Brian Cranston. See more »

Goofs

Incorrectly regarded as a goof: "In 'Forwards Backwards,' it said that Lois is allergic to nuts. If that is so, how was she able to make the almond brownie?" The brownie contained walnuts and The Krelboyne Circus (Season 1 Ep 8) preceded Forwards Backwards (Season 4 Ep 5) by thirty three months. Lois could have developed/discovered the allergy later.

Dewey: Cousin Nancy doesn't have a mother.
Lois: That's right. She has two daddies.

Error in Guest Star List
7 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tania Raymonde is listed as playing "Cynthia" in this episode. That is incorrect; she is not in this episode.

The Cynthia character first appears in Season 2, Episode 12, "Krelboyne Girl". She is introduced in that episode, which comes much later than this one.

IMDb should correct this error.

The episode itself is classic Malcolm. The family goes to a picnic, and creates havoc. Especially funny is Francis' relationship with Jody, who he meets, dates, breaks up with, and sees again, all in the space of this one picnic.
