1/10. The only reason this gets a one is because I felt generous. This show was nothing more than a further indictment of the white working middle class. Hal's a sissy mary, bossed around by his wife and over run by his sons. Lois is a loud mouthed shrew with a mean disposition and a martyr complex, like my mother. Francis is a slacker with no ambition in life with a clueless wife who looks like she married him to immigrate legally here. Reese is a moron hell bent on staying on the lower end of the spectrum with an apparent desire for chaos. Dewey's a hyper active brat with no need to be there other than as the youngest. The worst character though is Malcolm. Man, when does he ever display any signs of being a genius? So what if he can remember a lot of complicated things and do things more advanced above his age range? He hardly seems to show and use good judgement. I also hated how they had his friend Stevie represent four groups:black, nerd, wheelchair bound, and asthmatic. This show, in general, kept alive the idea that the family is nothing more than a big joke.

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.

Question: Who sings the theme tune? I know that it's called 'There Might be Giants' but that's all. Thanks.
