There was a Malcolm in the Middle reunion and all we got was this awesome photo

The other day, Malcolm in the Middle’s Frankie Muniz sent out this tweet:

Attached was a photo from when the Malcolm in the Middle cast got together in mid-September. “Had an amazing time seeing all my old friends from “Malcolm” today… Realized how much i missed everyone!” Muniz tweeted.

Here’s the whole gang, including Bryan Cranston (taking time off from Breaking Bad duty), Muniz, Jane Kaczmarek (Lois), Justin Berfield (Reese), Christopher Kennedy Masterson (Francis), Erik Per Sullivan (Dewey), and what we think are the twins who played baby Jamie, when Lois and Hal became parents again in the show’s fourth season.

While we can’t believe we weren’t invited to what, according to Muniz, was the first time the cast has been back together in the six years since the show ended, we were just so happy to see the family back together again. Besides, if there’s anything we learned from Malcolm in the Middle it’s that life is unfair.

Muniz also tweeted individual photos of himself with Kaczmarek (captioned “Me & mom”) and with Cranston and Masterson captioned “He is the danger. @BryanCranston.” Considering what’s been going on in Breaking Bad lately, that is a pretty accurate statement. After the get together Muniz tweeted, “Had an amazing time seeing all my old friends from “Malcolm” today.” He added, “Realized how much i missed everyone!” Aw, we miss you guys too! Which is why we air back-to-back episodes of Malcolm in the Middle every week night from 6 to 8 p.m. ET.

Before coming to IFC, Malcolm in the Middle ran for seven seasons on Fox from 2000-2006. During its run, the show took home seven Emmy awards and was nominated for seven Golden Globes.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”


Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet FTW on Brockmire

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”


But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.

From baseball to beer, Jim Brockmire calls ’em like he sees ’em.

It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:
