Was anyone ever a fan of the show during the years when it originally aired, Or at least watch reruns of the show on Fox occasionally?

Aside from that, for anyone curious enough about the show, it chronicles a dysfunctional family with each respective member's foibles and quirks as they progress through life. It's basically like the Simpsons, except not animated. The eponymous 'protagonist', Malcom, who is highlighted in several episodes, is the perspective of that the family is viewed in. Malcom breaks the fourth wall when addressing viewers of a particular situation.

The staples of the show are it's dark humor, sarcastic remarks, misadventures and basically the family's handling of a certain problem, in an odd, erratic way.

A lot of people on FFS I've talked to about the series said they either didn't enjoy it or it was overrated.

Personally, I fucking love the series, and could watch reruns til my eyes bleed. Hal and Lois might be some of my favorite characters ever. So bizarre in both their personalities and relationship, but at the same time, so true to life. Man, I love all the characters~

It's alright but I dunno, I thought the jokes were always sort of the same.
