Before the first season of Malcolm came out on DVD, I had only seen a few shows on FOX and thought the show was ok. When I got the first season on DVD and watched them, I realized how very funny and smart that season was. Anyway, I'm not sure what season Malcom is actually in now, but when I watch the shows, I think they really have gone downhill since the first season. Those german people at the dude ranch really get on my nerves... I wanted to know if you guys thought the shows have degraded or not since the first season, and if you think they have, in your opinion, what was their last *good* season? Season 2 is not on DVD yet, so I don't know if those shows are as good as season 1, but I know for sure I don't care to get the newer seasons when they come out on DVD.
