I cant stand Dewey


MAN WHAT AN ANNOYING ASS KID. He's awkward, corny, arrogant, obnoxious and you guessed it, ANNOYING. I hate this kid so damn bad!

He was adorable and hilarious the first couple seasons. He did get annoying later on.

To each their own. He was consistently my favorite character.

great writing and acting for dewey..the bravest and strongest and most independent..he was the least intimidated by lois of any of the boys..

reply

Great point. I'm re-watching the series right now (already in S2 and I just started yesterday hehe)...It's amazing how much of the show is coming back to me and also I get the impression that Dewey might be nearly as intelligent as Malcolm but might have a hint of asperger's like myself (or is just self-confident and socially awkward and im just projecting)

reply

I didn't care for Dewey at first, but now I've grown to like him. He was likable and adorable on his own right.

reply

He's one of the main reasons I love the show. Oddly, I find Malcolm the most obnoxious and irritating and largely unfunny character in the show. He's selfish and always looks out for number one. I always thought Dewey was more balanced in that he could be selfish but he also had empathy.

reply

I like that Dewey never became crazy sadistic like the rest of them. But you're right, he could be selfish, and yet it was understandable. It was weird how he wasn't the typical character of the youngest sibling:wild and spoiled. But he did crave attention which he seldom received since he wasn't as reckless as Reese or as special as Malcolm. I think he was the best of both worlds when it came to the good qualities of the boys: Malcolm's intelligence and Reese's spontaneity, and nothing of Francis. LOL! Was there nothing redeeming about Francis?

Wildcattin'...Wildcattin'. Pow! I'm gonna go.

I'm watching the series now and I can't stand him, either. In the episode with his dog Marshmallow, he's completely unbearable.

reply

I thought that episode was hilarious; and you can sympathize with Dewey.. Malcolm and Reese were terrible to him.

Dewey is the one character that never quote worked-he was the "extra" that writers gave weird, supposedly comical things to do.
The actor playing him is limited in range (one of the reason he doesnt act anymore) so that adds to the problem, methinks.
