* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Does Lois [[WellIntentionedExtremist treat her children bad because of the way they act]] or is she [[TheSociopath just trying to control their every action, because her mom did the same thing to her]]? In "Buseyís Run Away," Dewey explains to Malcolm and Reese that Lois hasnít punished him because he hasn't done anything wrong. However, in another episode Lois mentioned that she regularly treats one of her sons better than the other so that the other two donít know whatís going on.

** Herkabe crosses this in ''Malcolm tapes Reese''. If you didn't hate him by that episode for the stuff he did since season three and four, you will hate him there.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Hal's probably the most popular main character, in no small part to Bryan Cranston's marvelous LargeHam performance. It helps that there's a lot of RetroactiveRecognition thanks to ''Series/BreakingBad''.

* BaseBreaker: Every main character, ''especially'' Lois. Each character drifts from likable to completely insane. For the viewer, their mileage may vary on just how they're supposed to feel about anyone at any given time.

* RetroactiveRecognition: EmmaStone appears in one episode, JennetteMcCurdy (Sam on ''iCarly'' and ''Sam and Cat'') in two, and Creator/HaydenPanettiere in four (though unlike Jennette, she plays the same character in all her appearances). And of course, pre-''Series/BreakingBad'' Bryan Cranston.

** In a real way, the ''entire show'' and its concept. When it launched, it still got some flack for "not being very funny" due to the legitimate sociopathy and abusive behavior of much of the cast, but many people rolled with it as absurdist humor. Come TheNewTens, with a much greater general understanding of the kind of psychological damage emotional abuse inflicts on people (not to mention far too many killing sprees having been committed by people, including children, damaged by such abuse & neglect), many new viewers struggle to find any humor in the show at all.

** There was also the episode where Hal and the boys are at a wedding fair, and all episode long Dewey is going around talking to random people for some reason. At the end of the episode, you find he's commandeered pretty much everyone working there into helping his massive guilt-trip to Hal that he and Lois are going to induce labor on Jamie on Dewey's birthday, which Hal completely forgot about. This would be a CrowningMomentOfAwesome in my book, except the crowd chasing after them results in Hal crashing the car into a column at the parking lot, getting him injured, which keeps them all away from Lois who was in labor. So basically Dewey could've gotten what he wanted and ''not'' almost gotten his father killed by just talking to Hal about it, like normal human beings do.

This she was dying of cancer so she would be a CrowningMomentOfAwesome in my book, except too grief-stricken to notice that their report cards that they asked her to sign were terrible. They themselves acknowledge it as the crowd chasing after them results in Hal crashing the car into a column at the parking lot, getting him injured, which keeps them all away from Lois who was in labor. So basically Dewey could've gotten what he wanted and ''not'' almost gotten his father killed by just talking to Hal about it, like normal human beings do. worst thing that they ever did.
