Critic Reviews for Malcolm in the Middle Season 7

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Sails by, with none of the grandstanding and schmaltz many finales rely on to make an ending profound.

Aug 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Since it isn't exactly a warm and fuzzy comedy, you shouldn't expect "Malcolm" to get sappy at the end... it strikes a nice balance between maintaining its insanity, having a few sweet moments and a suitably nightmarish ending.

Feb 3, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

At a half-hour, it's not a bloated finale, nor is it particularly memorable, but this last "Malcolm" does send the show out in a style that's familiar to the show's fans.

Audience Reviews for Malcolm in the Middle: Season 7

    See now the only bad thing about this season is that it is the last one. The end isn't bad we are just sad that it is over and there is nothing we can do about it. Except rewatch it over and over. And pretend that's how life is supposed to be. If you've grown up with this series you are as blessed as I was. I recommend rewatching it as a teen, a young adult, a young parent, a parent and again as a grandparent. I bet every time there will be something new about it you couldn't comprehend before. At least that's what I have experienced so far and hope to continue.

    Well, it wasn't awful! I wasn't expecting as much from it, because this was the first (and obviously only) season that series creator Linwood Boomer wasn't showrunner! Anyways, what's there to say about this season.? I wasn't as impressed with the finale as I thought I'd be, but maybe that's because I've seen it several times, or at least more than once! But, I like that Linwood Boomer directed it, because I think aside from Todd Holland, (director of the Pilot, and several other episodes, the most of any director, and a personal favorite director and writer of mine), no one could have done it as well. I think with him at the helm like that, he was able to reference more of the series, especially the pilot! (Although, if he ran the show this season, he'd say to do that, so I guess I'm just saying in the context of him not being showrunner, since he wasn't.) I do wish he would have written it, though. If not alone, like the pilot, at least with the other guy that wrote it the finale. But the finale wrapped up the series well enough. I don't know if they knew it was going to be the end or not. If they did know, how long did they know? I'd have to guess it was during the season, because I'd think Linwood Boomer would have stayed on for being the showrunner for the last season! (Also, I accidentally clicked this ad that I always see and know not to click, (or at least, should know, I guess), and lost a little bit (just a little bit) of an addition I had added to this here. I think I remembered what I had written, and so because of that, kind of got it back, but it was just so annoying because it wasn't even that close to the post button! It was far enough that I think I could have would have missed it!) I guess that's it. The finale was fine, some of my favorite episodes yet again this season, one episode that reached the not fresh low point that hadn't been achieved for a few seasons, and the series as a whole was pretty good! I definitely think you could just watch all the good episodes, instead of the entire series. It's pretty uneven most of the time. Also, I finished this season, and the whole series, yesterday, 9/30/17, but I am writing it today, 10/1/17. Also, I decided to re-watch Bowling, before the series left, and started it at like sometime between 11:55 pm and 11:59 pm. It was so weird to see the clock turn to 12:00 am, and have it not stop playing! Then, I kept watching the whole thing, and by like 12:19 am, I think it was for sure that time, I was done watching it! Here's my favorite episodes of the series, in order of release date, except for the first one, which is my favorite! 1. S02E20 Bowling 2. S01E02 Red Dress 3. S02E03 Lois's Birthday 4. S03E13 Reese Drives 5. S05E01 Vegas 6. S05E02 Watching the Baby 7. S05E14 Malcolm Dates a Family 8. S05E16 Malcolm Visits College 9. S06E04 Pearl Harbor 10. S06E13 Tiki Lounge 11. S07E06 Secret Boyfriend 12. S07E16 Lois Strikes Back
