Malcolm in the Middle: Mini-Bike (2001)
This is the episode where we get to see what its like to live with Craig, and its not pretty. In fact, this episode paints Craig is in a really negative light, being a jerk basically all the way through. It's also interesting to point out that the boys would've been golden if they had just worked together and put their differences aside. Alas, they can not, even when its something they can all connect with.
Fun and suspenseful tale
I didnt expect much from this episode in first third. Ive seen similar premises done in horror before. Stuff where the protagonist hears voices and cuts off or mutilates their ears to get the sounds to stop. I can say without a doubt, THIS pulls off that trope the best. It perfectly balances horror and real suspense/unease, and the main actor gives a 110% performance.
Malcolm in the Middle: Casino (2000)
One of the funniest episodes
This is one of the most consistently funny episodes in the series. Watching Malcolm, Reese, and Hal run around the military base is unrelentingly fun to watch. It shows Season 2 and future seasons willingness to embrace the wackier plots that season 1 was mostly void of. I also have to bring up the brilliant one take scene of Francis and Craig walking around the house managing to not see each other.
A really dumb and ridiculous episode in the best way possible
This is definitely one of the so bad its kinda good episodes. This episode is lough out loud hilarious and doesnt hold any scare value in the slightest. Its a good episode if you want something painstaking corny and something to laugh at.
Malcolm in the Middle: Dinner Out (2000)
Great episode with neat cinematography
This the first episode where Malcolm's and Stevie's parents meet. You can really see the beginning stages of Abe and Hals friendship start to form when they are at the bar sharing problems. Though the parents dynamics would later be fleshed out and done better in episodes like Carnival, this is a great start. There are also neat camera shots in this episode like seeing Stevie hold up the circle through the fish tank and seeing Stevie get punched over and over again in the background of a shot.
Great episode with great concept
Similar to Bowling, this is an episode with a perfectly executed creative concept. It hits home towards the end of the episode when Lois realizes that boy or girl, there's no escape. At least there is a sweet ending to compensate.
Really good episode with great soundtrack
Though the shortest episode in the series, it still delivers the highest of quality as to be expected from a season 2 episode of Malcolm In The Middle. The penultimate scene is one the funniest scenes in the show, and it wraps up the A plot in absolute best and most creative way possible. This is also one of the episodes where the B plot is even better than the A!
Malcolm in the Middle: Charity (2001)
Hilarious episode with a thoughtful ending
This was the first episode of Malcolm In The Middle I ever watched. This is a great episode, showing the boys all working together on one plan nicely, unlike episodes like Mini Bike. One of my favorite nuances in this episode is Francis arriving at logging camp thinking Eric is too emotional, only to succumb down to his level after quickly realizing how bad the conditions are.
Malcolm in the Middle: Carnival (2001)
Another really good episode. Hearing some of the stuff Reese says when scared or under pressure always makes me laugh. The dynamic between the 4 parents are best executed here, done better than in Dinner Out and Houseboat. Its also clever and funny realizing the contrast between the craziness of the security guard and the calmness of the freak show.
