Malcolm in the Middle

Family Reunion - S4-E3

Plot hole: Hal says that his father was never there when he got dumped. But in episode 7, "Francis Escapes" Hal tells Francis he's never been dumped.

Kicked Out - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Malcolm's seat belt changes from on to off the first scene with him and his mom in the car. When it's a shot from the front it's on, but when it's a shot from the side (from the driver's/mom side) you can see that the part of the seat belt that's going across is now behind Malcolm, instead of on him like it was a second ago. This changes back and forth.

Forwards Backwards - S4-E5

Deliberate mistake: When Malcom scares Reese with the horn while Reese is in the shower, Reese falls and we get a glimpse of the shorts he is wearing. Shorts in the shower?

Suggested correction: Yes, but only so Frankie, Jane, Bryan, Erik, etc. don't see his business.

Baby (2) - S4-E21

Plot hole: When Jamie is delivered, he's completely clean. Francis's hands are clean too...

Clip Show #2 - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When Lois and Hal work to draw up their will and then argue about Francis, Lois' hair changes repeatedly when the camera angles continually change.

Clip Show #2 - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: This mistake happens in the scene where Dewey bumps his head. In one shot, Lois puts her hand on Dewey's shoulder, and in the next shot, her hand is on his chest.

Baby (2) - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Hal is in the hospital and is trying to get up and leave, he has three straps holding him down. We see him unbuckling the top two, but he leaves the bottom one. In the next shot, the strap is unbuckled.

Forwards Backwards - S4-E5

Factual error: The supposed "Amazing Spider-Man 14" that is featured is actually a copy of "Amazing Spider-Man 351". Craig calls it a 1993 reprint of 14, yet 351 is actually from 1991.

Stereo Store - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: In the escape scene when Hal runs out the store his boss presses a button to lower the shutters. This causes the pencils to fall out of the cup but in the next shot the pencils are back in the cup and roll off the table into the fan.

If Boys Were Girls - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lois and the boys are in the clothing store, Lois piles a bunch of clothes in Reese's arms. The clothes change in his arms from shot to shot.

Zoo - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Tarantula is put on Hal at the zoo, the shot is only of a yellow shirt with the tarantula crawling on it. When the shot changes to where they show the whole Hal, you can easily tell that the tarantula is fake - it is larger than it was and is in a different spot on Hal's shirt.

Stupid Girl - S4-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Hal is driving the steamroller at night alone in the car park - just before Dewey shows up - in the first shot there is a crewmen standing smiling in shorts to the side of the roller who then slowly walks out of view.
