Malcolm in the Middle Season 6 (Size: 3.75 GB)
Full version of season 6. Remember that only first season came out on DVD so the rest are captured from TV. This is part of my larger 7 season collection and I tested this on VLC on PC and streamed using Playon to my Xbox 360. Seems to get a good picture, this is the best collection I have been able to gather from many sources.
Malcolm in the Middle is an American television sitcom created by Linwood Boomer for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series was first broadcast on January 9, 2000, and ended its six-and-a-half-year run on May 14, 2006, after seven seasons and 151 episodes. The series received critical acclaim and won a Peabody Award, seven Emmy Awards, one Grammy Award and was nominated for seven Golden Globes.
The series follows a family of six (later seven), and stars Frankie Muniz in the lead role of Malcolm, a more-or-less normal boy who tests at genius level; he enjoys being smart but despises having to take classes for gifted children, who are mocked by the other students who call them "Krelboynes". Jane Kaczmarek is Malcolm's overbearing, authoritarian mother, Lois, and Bryan Cranston plays his disengaged but loving father Hal. Christopher Masterson plays eldest brother Francis, a former rebel who, in earlier episodes, was in military school, but eventually marries and settles into a steady job. Justin Berfield is Malcolm's dimwitted older brother Reese, a schoolyard bully who tortures Malcolm at home even while he defends him at school. Younger brother Dewey, genius musician, is portrayed by Erik Per Sullivan. For the first couple of seasons, the show's focus was on Malcolm. As the series progressed, however, it began to explore all six members of the family rather equally. A fifth son—Jamie—was introduced as a baby toward the series' conclusion.
It was produced by Satin City and Regency Television in association with Fox Television Studios (syndicated by Fox corporate sibling 20th Television).
The series has proven popular worldwide and has been syndicated in 57 countries. In the United States, it had been syndicated in the daytime on FX and at nighttime on Nickelodeon's sister channel TeenNick, as well as local stations. In the United Kingdom, it originally aired on BBC2 before moving to Sky1, its HD counterpart and Sky2, however after Sky stopped airing repeats of the show, the rights were bought by Channel 5 (UK) and are now shown on 5*. It had also been syndicated on Network Ten in Australia (originally airing on the Nine Network). In Canada, episodes were shown on the Global Television Network.
The show placed #88 on Entertainment Weekly's "New TV Classics" list, and was named by Alan Sepinwall of Hitfix.com as one of the 10 best shows in Fox network history.
