It's still amazing to this day that a man who started as a comedy actor went on to being so good at dramatization of a drug dealer people all cried out 'MAKE HIM LEX LUTHOR' because of it.

Ralph Fiennes should've been Lex Luthor.

I have no idea why they picked Jesse Eisenberg.

Hudson Garcia
Hudson Garcia

Agreed.
The only other one would be Scrubs if we ignore season 9.

I'm happy BB gave him such a big break. But fuck I hated that show, it's like the opposite of everyone else. Everyone I knew say they disliked the start and loved the end, I thought it started strong and became total shit.
I just wanted a story of a sympathetic man in over his head, strugglign with his cancer and providing for his family. Instead I got a story where they felt the neet to blow things up almost every week, and have the MC suddeny taking on veterna drug lords and end with him gunning down nazis. Becuase you cant NOT shoehorn in nazi villains, thats not at all done to death.
Seriously though, fuck that explosion filled bullshit.

The best. Until Francis got kicked out of the dude ranch that was just lazy writing in an otherwise funny and creative show. Went from 10/10 to 8/10.

The Ranch problem was how it was done offscreen. Maybe an actor had health issues or other commitments, but it should have atleast been onscreen.

Christian Garcia

Great stuff, that show. Should be remembered alongside the top sitcoms of the 90's, but it will probably fade into obscurity because it was too late and aimed at too young an audience.

It's got a small Japenese animated segment in the OP, so it's anime interspersed with live action so as much of an anime as End of Eva or First Squad.

clearly this is a malcom thread

Jack Rodriguez

tfw Sup Forums discusses malcolm in the middle better than /tv/ in a completely positive and civil manner

Justin Edwards
Justin Edwards

Off topic threads usually do well. I've had better anime discussions in /v/ and really interesting literature discussions on /co/, as well as a really civil dialogue about race and power dynamics in America on /co/.

Andrew Hughes

You know the rule, all boards discuss their own topic worse than other boards.

David Martin

I just wanted a story of a sympathetic man in over his head, strugglign with his cancer and providing for his family.
Unless you were watching from the very beginning there's no way you didn't know that was not what you'd be getting. It was pretty clear it was gonna be a guy getting in over his head and spiraling out of control because lolhubris

Jayden Ortiz

I haven't been on /tv/ in 2-3 years, back when the complete show was finally released on DVD and they absolutely love it too.

No one actually cared to watch that anime, I see

Good. It's awful.

Joshua Torres

Did it really end with Malcom getting a job as a janitor and the parents getting another child?

Elijah Hill

It ends with Malcolm pursuing a race driver career but he suffers a mini-stroke

Michael Fisher

It all went according to keikaku for Lois and Hal

Juan Cook

Hatred!?

Dominic Hughes
Dominic Hughes

What do you mean "finally". I knew it was shit the moment I watched it, 18 years ago. It's a really, really bad anime from the tail end of the bubble where they were just throwing any shit onto celluloid and hoping it stuck. Still baffling why they used shots of it in the Malcolm OP, but there you go.

Michael White
Michael White

This actually is the ending.

But he's a janitor at his college, working and schooling if I remember correctly. Been a few years since I saw the ending.

Aiden Nelson
Aiden Nelson

On the last episode, Hal and Lois admit to their kids that they literally planned out each of their lives. Malcolm has to become president, according to Lois, so he'll go through school and all that shit as a janitor first to become president.

Dewey gets to live the comfy life with luxury because he's talented.

Dylan Williams
Dylan Williams

Instead of becoming rich and successful immediately, because he needs to suffer according to his parents, yes. That's the ending.

First 3 seasons of Malcolm are gold. Then Malcolm starts to become increasingly unlikable and the mom goes from annoying to unbearable.

Hal and Reese are the only two characters actually worth anything by the end.

Juan Reyes
Juan Reyes

Can you repeat the question?

Jack Thompson
Jack Thompson

This bothered me about the show. Malcolm literally has no redeeming qualities and keeps getting into ridiculous situations because he's a prick.

Reese is literally a joy to watch by the end of the series, especially when he realizes he's great at cooking. Francis ranch episodes are great.Hal crashing his car into a bee is hysterical.

Everyone else becomes more of an asshole as they grow up. Even Stevie.

Liam Myers
Liam Myers

What about Reese?

Alexander Bell

Jace Parker

Isaiah Murphy
Isaiah Murphy

Is season 3 where Francis goes to Alaska? That was the best season hands down.

David Brown
David Brown

Is Malcolm in the Middle a good representation of what the average American family is like? These guys have 6 people living in one big house so they must be rich. I want to live in America!

Tyler Fisher
Tyler Fisher

I don't remember what they said for him, but during that episode, Reese is like a janitor's assistant at his old high school. If he stays on board for a certain amount of time, he'll get like full-time and great benefits or something. He devises a complex plan to ruin the school so fucking hard that they'll HAVE to keep him to help clean up so that he gets the dosh.

I think after the timeskip he lives with Craig. I don't remember if he does anything with his cooking talent.

Jeremiah Thompson

Fuck man, why the hell did they said that Francais got fired from the ranch?

If the actor quit, just have them do one last sequence where they promote Francis to be a new hotel owner or something.

James Long
James Long

The Golf Cart in the Pool is probably the best sequence in the entire anime.

Sebastian Carter

Nathaniel Green

Remember that episode where Piama gets money for being painted nude and Francis gets jealous? That was fucking shit.

Remember when Hal and the boys forget Lois' birthday? Then when they try to make it up to her, they get into a family brawl with a bunch of clowns? That shit was rad.

Isaac Kelly

Because I watched the reruns on an almost daily basis back in the day I was always confused about never seeing the episode where Francis leaves the dude ranch. I was pretty pissed to find out that it happens off screen.

Ryan Jenkins

What is the context of this scene? Why does he kill him?

Isaiah Gonzalez
Isaiah Gonzalez

Holy shit I just remembered one of my favorite moments. Hal is about to go to prison for some illegal shit his company did, but during the court case, it's revealed that Hal skipped work every Friday for 3 years and has some sort of theme park or attraction ticket for each day.

/tv/ discusses about anime in civil manner

That's some pretty good anime

Hunter Thompson
Hunter Thompson

basically, before the modern day dubbing companies were a thing, a lot of good anime got dubbed because it was the only way they could guarantee high returns.
But they also used legit actors for the roles.
Mainstream animation VAs too. Robotech shared a few big names back then with Ninja Turtles and the like.
Being a kid in the 80s was great.

Not only that but he was doing so well. He was happy and him and Otto got along so well. I don't recall what excuse they gave but I remember thinking that Otto wouldn't be angry at that. Man, they just didn't want him to be happy. Thank goodness he was still funny after that.
