Malcolm in the Middle
4.46 / 5 based on 35 Reviews
The hit TV show Malcolm in the Middle hits DVD in a three disc set titled Malcolm in the Middle: The Complete First Season. Each of these episodes is presented in a cropped 1.33:1 full-frame transfer (the show was originally shot in 1.78:1 widescreen) and sports a few minor imperfections (i.e, grain and some softness in the image). Otherwise, these are fine-looking transfers that feature solid black levels and usually crisp colors. The soundtracks are presented in Dolby Digital 4.0 Surround in English. These mixes are better than expected when it comes to dynamic range and ambient sound. While none of the episodes' soundtracks will blow fans away, overall they sound exceptionally nice for a prime-time TV show. Also included on these discs are English subtitles. Fox has done a fine job at adding some bonus materials to this set, including commentary tracks on every episode by various cast and crew members, including creator Linwood Boomer, directors Todd Holland and Arlene Sanford, writers Alex Reid and Michael Glouberman, and stars Frankie Muniz and Bryan Cranston. Each of these tracks feature a plethora of production information, funny anecdotes about the shoots, and other tidbits for fans to chew on. Also included is an optional ID track which allows the viewer to know who is speaking at any given time. Next up is "Malcolm Vision" which looks at why the film was cropped to a full-frame transfer instead of presented in its original widescreen ratio. Two featurettes - "Malcolm in the Middle: A Stroke of Genius" and "Dewey's Day Job: A Portrait of Erik Per Sullivan" - take a look at what goes on behind the scenes of the show. The first featurette includes cast and crew interviews about the show while the second focuses on child actor Erik Per Sullivan and what he does when he's not in front of the camera. Finally there is a gag reel of bloopers by the cast, a behind-the-scenes montage set to upbeat music, some weird intros by the cast, and a few promo TV spots for see more...

Who doesn't love a 30 minute sitcom that has the ability to make you laugh, cry, love & hate the characters at different times & definitely has you either missing it when it's over or anxiously awaiting the next new episode. I love that this show hits the mark on all those things & more

I think this show is hilarious. The entire family is so chaotic and they all always end up in the funniest situations but its got nice messages hidden along the way as well. I really enjoy the actors in this and how well they work together. Its very underrated.
Love this show me and my sisters would get home from school and run straight to the tv to watch it. Its a delightfully off-the-wall show about a bright youngster, his brothers, goofy dad and spunky mom
esta serie es muy buena es divertida y se la recomiendo a las personas que les guste mucho las locuras y la comedia por que de eso se trata esta serie a mi me gusta mucho y cada vez que puedo la veo junto a mi hermana y junto a mi mama y las locuras de esta familia sin geniales
My thirteen year old grand daughter watches this over and over again of course I seat with her I kinda got too like it from her ! Never amazes me what they do of the wall !
I love Malcolm in the middle. I remember as a kid we used to pile up in the living room after school or before bed and watch every episode that was on. I recommend this show
Absolutely hilarious show, from season one all the way through the end. Seeing Bryan Cranston in the role that brought him fame is quite shocking now after seeing where he's gone. Talk about an actor that can play both sides! Great show overall!
la vi en la adolecencia y me encanto creo que el semtido del humor que caracteriza esta serie es imaginacion infantil desgracia y sarcasmo a mil ... si me gustaria verla de nuevo ?? obvio que si , mi personaje favorito es stui . creo que deberian repetirla en fox
I've never been a big fan of Malcolm in the Middle, but it was entertaining while it was on the air. The rest of the family was funnier than Malcolm.
I will always love this show, I loved it when I was a kid and I still love it now. My sister and I have been watching the entire series on Netflix.
