You don’t have to look far to find a really good sitcom. Whether it’s “King Of Queens”, “A Terrible Nice Family”, “Community”, “Friends” or “Modern Family“: The wealth of high-quality material from this series genre is really enormous. One of the best sitcoms of all time is “Malcolm in the Middle”, which not only continues to inspire with its really uninhibited humor, but also “Breaking Bad’ star brought Bryan Cranston to popularity.
Starting today, all seven seasons of Malcolm in the Middle are available on Disney+ subscriptions. If you’ve seen the series before, it’s still worth a rewatch, because many episodes are bursting with Easter eggs and hidden gags that tend to take place in the background of what’s happening. The prime example of this is probably Dewey’s hamster, which plays a major role in season 3 – but only if you really watch the series with concentration.

There is also something revolutionary about the series, in which Frankie Muniz, as a gifted teenager, has to endure the normal madness of a chaotic family in America (and at the same time fuels it again and again).
Because “Malcolm in the middle” was created in the so-called single-camera production method. At the time, it was actually sitcom standard to use multi-camera production to record from multiple angles at once. It’s not without reason that Malcolm in the Middle feels surprisingly cinematic for an early 2000s TV series.
In addition to “Malcolm in the Middle” there is another new series in the Disney+ subscription that we don’t want to withhold from you…
Anyone interested in American hip-hop has inevitably heard of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan. The rap combo of RZA, GZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Raekwon and Masta Killa made music history. Rather than follow hedonistic gangsta rap, the Wu-Tang Clan opted for dark lyrics and never romanticized the ghetto world.
The fictionalized series “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” is now available in the Stars section on Disney+.
And that’s what it’s all about: The series describes the formation of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan. In the early 1990s in New York, Bobby Digs aka RZA (Ashton Sanders) tries to unite a handful of young black artists who are torn between music and crime. With the country at the height of the crack and cocaine epidemic, the future for rappers isn’t looking too bright.
