5.0 out of 5 stars Better than The Simpsons?, 24 Jan. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Malcolm in Middle: Season 1 [DVD] [2000] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This is one of the few "laugh out loud" tv shows around. It is a shame it has been cancelled as it has been consistently funny. Admittedly the latter series have not been as skewed as the first couple of seasons but it is still better than it's peers. But the characters have all been allowed to develop and for me this how I would imagine a live action Simpsons would appear. There are plenty of characters to enjoy outside the regular family unit, Commandant Spengler, Craig Felspar (Lois' creepy co-worker, who has a crush on her), the Grandmother from hell, played by Cloris Leachman no less.
I have been a fan from day one and I have the DVD set and it is interesting to watch some of the development footage where Linwood Boomer ( creator ) makes reference to Lois being an ogre and how it was met with some resistance in the US. Not only that the DVD has a stonking "making of" that had me splitting my sides when I first watched it.
If you are a fan, buy yourself a cheap multi region player and then get the DVD set, it is well worth the money.
And my message to Fox would be, get the rest of the seasons out asap before it becomes forgotten.
