Malcolm In The Middle
29 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode is amazing (like every other episode), Malcolm in the Middle is amazing i have seen nearly all the episodes and was never once board with it.

It is great when they dance to Phil Collins. it is great! overall, Malcolm in the middle is worth 10/10 for it's amazing, funny stories and they just keep going.

Hal is so thick and funny!

The boys are always left alone with the baby and they always screw it up no matter how they act. :)

This episode was really funny and good story, i would recommend this to anyone who likes comedy things and/or Phil Collins
