malcolm in the middle

There are only a few things in this world worth living for these days, trudging on mindlessly day by day, with no end in sight. TV is one of the big ones. Unfortunately, it’s not one of those things that I keep myself up to date on very much, and I only just now discovered Malcolm in the Middle as its reaching the end of its run. I can’t believe what I’ve been missing out on, either.

Every show I watch is hilarious and makes me burst out laughing (which is pretty rare, whent it comes to tv shows). What else can I say about it? It’s great stuff, and I can’t believe I never knew about it. The good thing is it airs twice a day on my local WB station here, so I’ve already got a small collection recorded on my mythbox.

The bad news is that Fox hasn’t released any of the seasons on DVD except for the first one. I really hate it when stuff like that happens. I’m tempted to download it off a torrent somewhere, but with my luck, I’d get sued by some huge company for doing that. Besides, I don’t condone file sharing in the least. It really sucks though that you never know if we’ll ever be able to see them again any other way than reruns. The story is always the same for why some shows don’t come out on DVD — they are having trouble renegotiating the “rights” to certain stuff, which basically translates to “everyone wants more money now that this thing is actually popular.”

Oh well, in the meantime, I’ll just settle for another one of life’s reasons for living — Corn Pops.
