"The Wonder Years" meets "Malcolm In The Middle"
19 June 2001 | by Aussie StudSee all my reviews

The pilot episode for this new Summer half-hour sitcom was not bad. The show revolves around two brothers, one played by Kieran Culkin and his older brother played by Will Friedle. They are both starting their first semester at Senior High, Kieran being a student and Will being a teacher.

Both brothers try hard immensely to fit in. Kieran wants to win the affections of a fellow female student while Will seeks a love interest in a fellow teacher who teaches Shakespeare. As they both live in the same house, their parents portray two 'nutty' characters much like the parents in "Malcolm In The Middle". While this show provides no laugh track, it attempts to conquer the all-too-familiar 'coming of age' aspect of adolescence by using comedy and slapstick humor as a backdrop. Throw in Andy Dick as a whacko drama teacher and you'll see my point.

Whether this show will last all of Summer remains to be seen. It could have been more original had it come out before "The Wonder Years". Otherwise, it's probably one of the better shows to hit the Summer TV schedule.

6/10
