Hendrix, thanks for the correction. I looked into it, and unfortunately, it's not completely meant to work out. The writers don't think about it that hard so it's not all going to work out. If I move Cynthia's Back to March, then Company Picnic would have to be in March as well, and I really don't think one could have a picnic--in which the leaves are green, I might add--in March...regardless of where they live. Even April is a bit of a stretch there.
We just have to pretend maybe he meant it was or just ignore it because, as I said, it's not going to fit otgether perfectly
The main problem I have with this is that Malcolm is supposedly 16 when he graduates - assuming that he didn't skip any grades (was placed in special classes unexpectedly), that seems very inaccurate to me. If he started the show at age 12, it might work, but otherwise it seems to be to be a fatal flaw. Any ideas?
Which makes much more sense! Also, some of Malcolm's jokes and activities would seem very odd if he were up to two years younger at all times - i.e. Forbidden Girlfriend possibly taking place when he was 13? Don't think so.
