Quotes

Reese: [after deserting the Army in Afghanistan, Reese is crawling through the desert half-dead, when he sees a vision] Mr Waffles?
Mr. Waffles: Reese, you can't give up. You've got to keep going. You've got to keep trying.
Reese: You don't know what I've been through. I've been shot at, chased, married - and when the guy found out I was a dude, it wasn't like a total deal-breaker.

Back with a bang

If anything I think this show bucked the trend of diminishing returns as the kids in a family orientated sitcom grow up and got better as it went along. This episode is a fine example of this.

Although still a key part, the character of Malcolm has now had the focus moved off of him slightly (he always was a straight man to the other far funnier characters) and we get to explore others like Reese.

This is a fun episode, full of fun and sharp lines. It's surreal in places too, which I love, and it marks the start to a good series 6.

Well done to all involved, this was fab.
