This review is from: Malcolm in the Middle: The Complete First Season [DVD] (DVD)
It was with a great sense of nostalgia that I ordered the first season of Malcolm. I had seen a few of the episodes on TV but nothing past season 2. But me being the obsessive compulsive TV collector had to get the seasons in order.
Overall still love the format and premise of the TV Show. Bright boy with family that puts fun in dysfunctional basically sees it as himself against the rest of the world. All he wants to do is go on about life quietly.
I feel that they got the casting spot on. The episodes were well written and I really enjoy it when Malcolm "breaks the 4th wall" which to me is an homage to Magnum PI... I am sure there were others but that's the one that stuck with me from my youth.
I look forward to buying the next series and seeing how they grow the cast and story.
