NIGHT IN WITH NETFLIX: MALCOM IN THE MIDDLE
Senior Eddie Kramarevsky, an environmental science major, has recently been watching “Malcom in the Middle” on Netflix.
Q: What have you been watching on Netflix?
A: “I just finished ‘Malcolm in the Middle.’”
Q: Who introduced you to the show?
A: “I used to watch it when it was on TV as a kid and then I decided to sit down and watch the whole thing.”
Q: What do you like about the show?
A: “They’re labeled as a dysfunctional family but they’re a normal family that just gets into some weird situations.”
Q: Who is your favorite character?
A: “Hal. He’s in his underwear for half the show. He has his quirks, like he can’t stand hospitals. He’s a very dynamic character.”
My Review: This family seems pretty clueless, but they’re smart in their own ways of destruction and just plain weirdness. Boys will be boys, but these boys have most ridiculous ideas, which makes the show hilarious. Young Frankie Muniz was a great little actor that completely makes this show because he seems to be the most normal one in this family. There doesn’t seem to be one orderly thing about this family and the sheer outrageousness of this show is what makes it entertaining and absurd. The crazier the situation is, the funnier it is.
