I freaking love this episode!
7 November 2013 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Great episode! I've recently been watching this show on Netflix. I've seen the first four episodes, and this one is my favorite so far, closely followed by episode 3. Almost everything about this episode is great. The great, simple premise. The great jokes, almost every one works. The beginning scene, the one before the theme song plays. That entire scene where the mom blasts a terrible song on loud volume. The entirety of it. The phone discussions the three kids have with their older brother. Malcom's "brilliant idea" at the end, that we never actually find out, but we don't even need to for the joke to work. The HILARIOUS ENDING! Love this episode. The only thing holding this back from a 10/10 is the scenes with the dad getting drunk and having a conversation and a dinner with the guy who gets payed to stand in the bathroom, offering people mints or something. Not the best scenes, but the others make up for it, and then some. Great show, too, by the way. If you're reading this and haven't watched the show yet, do so now! It's on Netflix, only $7.99 per month, and you can watch "Futurama" while you're at it.
