About Malcolm in the Middle
Although Malcolm has a genius IQ, he can't seem to make sense of the opposite sex or his embarrassing family. Lois, his outspoken mom, manages to rule the roost even though her boys are growing wise to her crafty ways. Dad Hal, a bumbling big kid at heart, often finds himself creating more chaos than his five boys combined. Goofy Reese makes up for his lack of intelligence with deviance. Francis, the oldest brother, is shipped to military school to keep him out of trouble. Dewey has learned his tricks from the best. And then there's Jamie, the baby/family scapegoat. Together they make up one of the most wildly eccentric "normal" families on TV.
