Malcolm in the Middle

Flashback - S2-E25

Visible crew/equipment: When Lois goes into labour with Malcolm, she runs outside taking Francis and Reese with her. When Francis says, "You're a liar, you're a liar," watch the back window of the car and you will see the camera and camera operator's reflection.

Traffic Jam (2) - S2-E1

Audio problem: Near the end when the family have got back in the car Malcolm says something like "who would have thought a traffic jam could be so cool, we should do this again". Near the end of the sentence we can see Malcolm's mouth and it isn't moving.

Reese Cooks - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: During one of Reese's cooking classes, Hal puts some bread into a toaster. It then cuts to a shot of Reese. When it cuts back to Hal, the toast that pops out of the toaster isn't the same shape as the bread he put in.

Halloween Approximately - S2-E2

Other mistake: In the scene where boys are loading eggs into their slingshots, one of the eggs misses and falls on the roof, but doesn't break. A real egg would have broken.

Bowling - S2-E20

Visible crew/equipment: After Malcolm gets caught by the pin setter and falls on the pins, when Hal throws his last ball to bowl a 300 game, the camera zooms out and you can see the other cameraman and the dolly on the right side of the screen.

Flashback - S2-E25

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the episode Reese and Malcolm are teasing Dewey with the ball, after it rolls into the gutter the camera goes back to the three boys. To the left of the screen is the massive lighting equipment for the sunlight. (00:00:10)

Robbery - S2-E7

Other mistake: The book Reese is sawing through in the background, while Malcom is talking into the camera, is already cut in half and the saw is not sawing anything. Then they cut to Reese about 7 seconds later as he actually saws the book in half. (00:02:13)

Surgery - S2-E17

Plot hole: There is no way that Malcolm would have been able to write that message on his stomach. He gets found by the nurse and then we see him in a room getting some medicine and then he is in the operating room.

Suggested correction: Actually before is given some type of sedation before the surgery he is wearing a different hospital gown. He would have had enough time to write the message on his stomach when he was asked to change into the blue gown.

Halloween Approximately - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Francis walks into the boy's room the calendar says September 2000. In the next shot it changes to October 2000. After that Reece says "No, it really is the 31st" he flips up the September page of the calendar to October. (00:06:15 - 00:07:15)

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.
