The complete third series of the US comedy following the struggles of Malcolm, a boy with the IQ of a genius, and his family. Though Malcolm (Frankie Muniz) has a love of learning, he dislikes being singled out for his intelligence as it attracts the ire of his schoolmates. As if being labelled a geek due to his association with the other smart kids of the school wasn't bad enough, Malcolm has to deal with the stresses and strains of a family led by his mother, authoritarian control freak Lois (Jane Kaczmarek), and his caring but childlike father Hal (Bryan Cranston). The episodes are: 'Houseboat', 'Emancipation', 'Book Club', 'Malcolm's Girlfriend', 'Charity', 'Health Scare', 'Christmas', 'Poker', 'Reese's Job', 'Lois' Makeover', 'Company Picnic: Part 1', 'Company Picnic: Part 2', 'Reese Drives', 'Cynthia's Back', 'Hal's Birthday', 'Hal Coaches', 'Dewey's Dog', 'Poker #2', 'Clip Show', 'Jury Duty', 'Cliques' and 'Monkey'.

The adventures of a boy genius growing up in a crazy family and unfair world. This is the show's premise, but it offers so much more. The characters and situations are quirky and amusing, it's just like an exaggerated version of real life. Kindly dad Hal abdicates control, and escapes work mundanities and family chaos by retreating into a world of his own where he is still, or wants to be, a boy. These scenarios provide much of the show's lighter comedy. Mom Lois is loud-mouthed, opinionated and a control freak, making her unpopular, yet she keeps the household running despite the chaos. It is fascinating watching the interaction of the characters and seeing why they behave as they do. For example, the parents seldom give their lively boys quality attention, so it's hardly surprising the boys are mischievous at times. It's also interesting to see the psychological effect of the grandparents on Lois and Hal. Eldest brother Francis has 'mother issues' - he's a rebel and seeks his fortune at a logging camp in Alaska but finds a hell hole. Reese is an underachiever, the school bully, hopeless at school but when it comes to inventing schemes to cause trouble and mischief he's outstanding. Dewey, the traumatised youngest, also escapes into his fantasy world, where he imagines he is treated better. The show is also populated by eccentric larger than life supporting characters for example Lois's workmate Craig Feldspar, Ida the grandma from hell, Lavernia who is Francis's employer from hell, Malcolm's gifted classmates including loyal best friend Stevie, and their tough teacher Lionel Herkabe, with whom Malcolm has to battle.Read more ›
This season also has a Clip Show episode, where Believing the boys ruined the car, Hal forces them to see a psychiatrist to cure their bad behavior. Soon the three open up and tell him all about their family, which escalates into a big fight between the boys.

Unfortunately, the ‘Hal Coaches’ episode is a little weak as is the last episode ‘Monkey’. Both these, the cheap episode ‘Clip Show’ (at least they’re honest), and the ‘Christmas’ episode are only worth three stars, the last-named being surprising given the good one-liners given to Lois’s mother, played again by the wonderful Cloris Leachman. Other stars who appear in this episode include Stephen Tobolowsky and Susan Sarandon: indeed you could argue that the sight of Lois mud wrestling with Sarandon is worth the price of the whole set!
In this season, Francis has left military school, arrives in Alaska, and later marries Piama. This means ‘goodbye’ to Commodore Spengler – or does it? You’ll have to wait to the seventeenth episode to find out. Meanwhile, Rees is at high school, whilst Malcolm has a new teacher. Unfortunately not many of the episodes are set in his school, which (for me) was often the scene of many of the big laughs. There are no extras, so we aren’t told what happened to those of Malcolm’s school colleagues who didn’t make it to the third season.
Nevertheless, the inventive and witty writing continues. Take, for example, the episode ‘Malcolm’s Girlfriend’.Read more ›
