You think your brother and sister are wild? Imagine having Malcolm, Reese, Dewey and Francis as your menacing brothers. It's easy to see how the boys can make Lois blow a fuse and send Hal into hyperspace in a matter of seconds. Malcolm in the Middle is one of the coolest, most clever half-hours of tube time. Here are a few Malcolm facts you may or may not know about the show. Check it out!

Malcolm in the Middle - Fun Facts

  • Although there has been speculation that the last name of Malcolm and his family is "Wilkerson" (creator Linwood Boomer wrote the name on the pilot script), their last name has never been revealed because they didn't want to label the family as a certain ethnic group.
  • The Krelboynes are the gang of nerdy friends Malcolm hangs with. The name, which is a combination of "Krelboined" and "Krelborn," was taken from the nerdy hero in the movie, The Little Shop of Horrors.
  • The show isn't filmed in front of a live studio audience the way most sitcoms are because of the production style and the special effects used. This is why you never hear the audience laughing or clapping.
  • What the heck does Hal do for a living? Well, we're not quite sure, but we do know he works in an office with computers. Just to confuse us even more, in the Poker episode, Hal says he doesn't consider himself a professional. Hmmm... any ideas?
  • Another Malcolm in the Middle mystery is where this kooky family lives. It's another detail that's never been revealed in an episode. Any ideas? And no, it's not Los Angeles, CA - that's where Malcolm is filmed!
  • Do you love Malcolm in the middle? Well, sorry to say but it won't be returning in fall 2006 - this is it's last season! It's one of the longest-running sitcoms but it's got to end sometime!

You try to turn on the lamp, but the power is out. You explore the house.Several of the doors are locked, and there seem to be no beds, couches, or any other furniture to sit on. At last you come to a room that is not locked. You open the door and see something you did not expect.The room is bare save for three chairs. One has knives embedded in it, one is an electric chair, and the other one is swarmed with spiders. You are tired after searching for a place to stay and desire to sit and rest. Which chair do you choose? The electric chair cuz it won't kill you unless you flip a switch lol
