Malcolm in the Middle

Shame - S1-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene in which Spangler shows the younger cadets the sex slides which Francis sabotaged, Francis is seen ducking away from the spot where he's been standing, however he has not moved when Spangler approaches him after he turns off the slides.

Correction: Francis didn't duck out of the room, he was the one who shut off the projector and Spangler said it was "technical difficulties" and Francis went back to his standing position when Spangler approached him.

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: At the end of the scene where Malcolm defeats Spath, Malcolm throws some chocolate pudding on him and it is dripping off. A few seconds later in the wide shot, Spath has no chocolate on him.

Correction: The pudding is actually still there. When Malcolm throws the pudding onto him, it only lands on one side of his head. In the wide shot, his head is turned the other way. Therefore, it seems like the pudding is gone, but it isn't. Also, for about one frame, his head turns so you can see the pudding nearby the top of his head. Finally, the pudding is on his shirt still.

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Steve throws himself to the floor deliberately, people go to help him. When they grab him, even though he supposedly can't, he moves his left leg. It's really obvious.

Correction: He can move his legs, he is unable to walk because he only has one lung and it cannot support the exertion of that much activity.

Stock Car Races - S1-E10

Corrected entry: When the guys first get to the track, Hal says they have 4 hours of this. When Caroline gets to Malcolm's house she said Malcolm had been ditching school. But then, when the story goes back to the guys, they are still at the track. I wouldn't think that Caroline would leave the school to come and talk to Lois. And I also don't think Malcolm only has 4 hours of school.

Correction: No one said that malcolm has four hours of school. Let's say that malcolm has six hours, and it took hal an hour to drive there. They would spend four hours there, and spend an hour driving back. You have to take into account the driving time. Also, Caroline could've had a substitue teacher.

Red Dress - S1-E2

Corrected entry: In this episode, Lois tape records the boys singing and dancing and says she'll show the tape to their friends at their next birthday (key word 'next'). But in "Forwards Backwards" we find out that Malcolm and Reese have never had a birthday party in their entire lives.

Correction: The next does not imply there have been previous ones, that would be impossible anyway as they have already occurred. She says next to mean the upcoming birthday not a random birthday when she feels mean.

Malcolm in the Middle mistake picture

Red Dress - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Dewey yells for Lois because the bow was put on the present, if you look to the left of Lois, you will see a crewmember kneeling down, handing Lois the red dress, who is holding a bucket of water. He quickly gets out of the camera's view. [This is on the DVD of the first season. Someone said on the audio commentary that after catching it, they deliberately left it in to see if anyone would spot it. It's still a mistake, but that's why it's there.]

Opening theme song: Yes, no, maybe, I don't know, can you repeat the question? You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. Life is unfair.
