Malcolm in the Middle

A delightfully off-the-wall show about a bright youngster, his brothers, goofy dad and spunky mom. Wonderfully performed and scripted, with unpredictable (often irreverent) storylines. Home sweet home has seldom been such a nutty battleground.

Guest Cast

MIXED-ISH - In "mixed-ish," Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow's parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. This family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)
