Why Malcolm in the Middle is another of Walter White's Lies

I turned on the TV the other day and Malcolm in the Middle happened to be on. So I watched a few episodes. It was then I decided that Malcolm in the Middle is a prequel to Breaking Bad, and is just another of Mr. White's lies. I've concluded that Hal Wilkerson is his real name and Walter White is an alias and that he is leading a double life having had a family before Skyler.

To support this hypothesis, below are a few similarities and assumptions of these similarities that I have noticed:

- Both Hal and Walt marry head strong women.

- Hal fights with a bee in the car, Walt fights with a fly in the lab. He conquered the bee and the fly heard about it and decided he would see what he could get away with. The fly lost too.

- Hal is continually in his underwear, so is Walt. Something he just can't seem to give up.

- Malcolm (son of Hal) is a chemistry genius. Walt is a chemistry genius. Malcolm really inherited the genius, Hal just didn't want to let on.

- Francis (son of Hal) knocks out the power with a balloon touching the power lines. Mike does the same thing. Walt told him how to do it from it happening in the past.

- Hal won't take no for an answer when Dewey can't get his free game from getting a hole-in-one on the 18th hole in mini golf. Walt won't take no for an answer ever because of past incidences like this.

- Hal is conniving to get his way, so is Walt. They both manipulate situations to better their needs.

- In both marriages an unexpected pregnancy occurred.

- Malcolm had a disable friend, I believe this gave Hal/Walt the preparation he needed for when Walt Jr./Flynn came along.

- The theme song for Malcolm in the Middle is the anthem of Mr. White's world. Seriously. " Yes, No, Maybe So, Can you repeat the question? You're not the boss of me now (repeat a hundred times), and you're not so big. Life is unfair."

Of course these are just a few similarities I have noticed. I'm sure there are plenty more to support my theory.

Basically what it comes down to is I have figured that the boys drove Hal crazy and caused him to kill his whole family. He meets Skyler years later and creates a new family under a new identity. He tries to manage his anger, but then gets sick and decides he has to provide for his new family unlike his previous family and his anger is uncontrollable more than ever.

I feel I could be completely right with this. You decide. And maybe this will be how Breaking Bad ends with his double life coming to light?



  2. Pretty good for being posted months after many reddit one were...

    1. Thanks?? Considering this is a personal blog, not on reddit, and I wrote it nearly a year ago, I'll take that as a compliment.

  3. Except for the fact that Walt is shown in the series as a 20/30 something person when he's doing chem research with Gretchen.

    1. Very true and I've thought about that. What if he was doing that on the side in secret? And this is where his alter ego began? Meh. Maybe someone can come up with something better. Thanks for reading and commenting!

  4. Actually, its closer to believe that Malcolm grew up to be Walt.
    The Theme song of Malcolm in the Middle is about Malcolm
    Walt mentions having a bad relationship with his mother.
    Both Malcolm and Walt are Geniuses
    Malcolm grows up to look like his father
    Malcolm and Walt are both egotistical, arrogant, want to be right and a lot more.
    Malcolm grows up to become Walt, changes his name so his family wouldn't track him down.
    Plus Malcolm's grandfather name is Walter if i am not mistaken.


I loves me some comments!
