Before he was Walter White, Bryan Cranston was Hal — the well-meaning father of child prodigy Malcolm, on Malcolm in the Middle. The show, which got its start in 2000, initally focused on a family of six — Hal, his wife Lois, and their sons. It stayed on the air for seven seasons, based on its funny writing and fantastic cast.
The show is centered around Malcolm, who’s not the oldest or the youngest. His exceptional intelligence puts him in a gifted school, where he sometimes has trouble fitting in.

The show, which aired on Fox, was on for 151 episodes. While the show sometimes runs in syndication, you can watch Malcolm in the Middle online. Here’s the best way to catch up on the show and watch Malcolm in the Middle streaming.
