Matt Roush, in the June 23rd issue of TV Guide, writes about moments to remember of the past season, including one from Malcolm in the Middle. "Among many peaks, I especially liked the episode that imagined two different (but equally funny) scenarios depending on who took the boys bowling: clueless Hal or Commandant Lois."
