5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, original comedy, 2 Nov 2012
This review is from: Malcolm in the Middle: The Complete First Season [DVD] (DVD)
Perhaps the clue is in the name - Mr Parodi?? It was certainly a parody of an objective review...

While it does cover a lot of the same ground of other sitcoms, MitM is an original take on a dysfunctional family (now if you want to look at plagiarism perhaps you should check out the more recent series The Middle - a fairly unsubtle rip-off).

This is not to denigrate other series such as Roseanne, The Simpsons, etc., which are wonderful. It shouldn't be a competition to say which series is best; let's just say that America has over the last 50 years have come up with some of the best comedy on the planet (along with an awful lot of dross - Two and a Half Men anyone??).

Let's hope the remaining seasons appear soon!

Highly recommended
