Best TV Dad #6: Hal
“Malcolm In the Middle”
This is one guy who should never have had kids. For that matter we’re pretty sure Lois shouldn’t have, either. But really, Hal is just a big 9-year-old who never really wanted to grow up. Don’t ask him, but Hal’s the guy secretly living inside your own dad. Contrary to popular belief, the family DOES have a last name — it was divulged in the pilot episode: as Francis speaks to his mother on the phone, his name tag says 'Wilkerson.'
