Jamie, the last child in the family, is more present in the family, while Malcolm and Reese both continue their last year in high school. This is the last season in the series, which ends in a climax with a moving, funny and inventive final episode, just like this season.

We aimed to identify food sources of selected trace elements (Zn, Cu, Mn, I, Se, Cr, Mo) and biotin in the Japanese diet and to assess usual dietary intakes based on the ratios of within-person to between-person variance. Subjects were 98 middle-aged dietitians living in central Japan who participated in a survey of four-season 7 consecutive day weighed diet records. Based on the latest Standard Tables of Food Composition in Japan published in 2010, food sources of selected nutrients were located according to a contribution analysis, and computed usual dietary intakes. Dietary intakes were checked with the Dietary Reference Intakes for Japanese 2010. Prevalence of inadequacy in a group was determined using the Estimated Average Requirement cut-point method. The major contributors to selected trace elements and biotin were not only meat and milk, but also traditional Japanese food items, including rice, tofu and tofu products, fish, seaweed, chicken eggs, fermented soy bean seasonings, and green tea. Medians of usual intakes were estimated for Zn (men 8.9 mg, women 8.4 mg), Cu (1.32 mg, 1.21 mg), Mn (3.73 mg, 3.76 mg), I (312 μg, 413 μg), Se (97 μg, 94 μg), Cr (10 μg, 9 μg), Mo (226 μg, 184 μg), and biotin (51.7 μg, 47.6 μg). The prevalence of inadequacy of dietary intakes was high for Zn, Cu and Cr. Regarding I, the proportion above the Tolerant Upper Level was overestimated based on the crude mean value. We first identified food sources of selected trace elements and biotin in the Japanese diet, and assessed the usual intakes.

When Fox's Malcolm in the Middle ran from 2000 to 2006 it was hard to fully appreciate just how great the show was. With its novel outlook on the working-class family and its narrative restructuring of the typical sitcom format by breaking the fourth wall, Malcolm gave viewers seven seasons of enjoyable television.

Despite its success, not all of Malcolm's seasons were equally good. As viewers watched Malcolm and his brothers mature, there were peaks and valleys in the show's quality. From the weakest to the strongest, here is every season of Malcolm in the Middle ranked.

Malcolm in the Middle's quality never degraded to the point of being bad. In fact, some of its strongest character moments and plot lines developed in later seasons. Nonetheless, Season 6's storyline fell into an awkward middle-ground where the series seemed to just tread water until the end.

While the show's zaniness could be part of its charm, starting the season off with Reese deserting the Army in Afghanistan, posing as a woman in a burka and legally wedding a local man were a clear sign things spun off the rails. Though the military seemed like a good direction for Reese, the character had little else to do once the plotline was gone, and the rest of the cast were in similarly dead water.

While Season 5 set up some interesting plotlines, it did little else. Kitty Kenarban leaving her family, introducing dysfunction to the functional foil to Malcolm's family, developed side characters who had little to do in the show up until that point. The greater role given to Lois' extended family fleshed out the cast as well. As the season progressed, many of these characters seemed bound for promising plots.

But as the next season proved, many of these storylines did not turn out as promising as they seemed. In retrospect, the season may have earned credit for being far-sighted, but it was not until the last season (Season 7) that any of those plans actually came together.

Jamie's introduction added a new dynamic to the show. However, possibly the character's greatest contribution to the series came in utero when his presence pushed Lois' stressed mother status to the next level. Lois' outrage and inconvenience created the backbone to plenty of episodes throughout the season. Lois finding out she was pregnant while her own mother sued her and delivering Jamie while the world crashed down around her are both highlights of the series.

Hal got into fewer whacky shenanigans, Reese's role as a bully had yet to fully form and the supporting cast was nowhere near as substantial. Despite this, Malcolm in the Middle's first season represented the heart of the show and cemented the themes it would carry through the rest of its run.

If Season 1 established the foundation for what the show would become and Season 3 proved it was willing to adapt, it's only natural Season 2 represented Malcolm fully coming into its own. The characters were more crisply defined, and the early episode, "Lois's Birthday," established a piece of the family dynamic that was not as clear in the first season -- Hal is as much of a kid as his boys.

Ultimately the characters were the heart of the show and no season better represented that than the capstone that ended their arcs. The storyline culminated in the final, "Graduation," with everyone getting the perfect ending. With Malcolm bound to become the greatest president in American history, the working class strife of the entire family gained a new meaning. Although the series may have stumbled getting there, the final season did an A+ job sticking its landing.

There was speculation that The Middle might be coming to an end because contracts were up and Charlie McDermott signed on for a CBS pilot. Well, with or without son Axl, The Middle is coming back for a seventh season on ABC.

I enjoy the middle sue is a girl of great character I often tell my granddaughter about how she takes life the way it comes to her and looks at the bright side when she is knock down she picks her self up and starts all over. she is an easy going person and is very inmaterial I love her.

I love this show and hope so badly it continues. And hope that Axl returns along with Brick!! The season finale made me feel like Brick may be leaving the show and he is the most endearing and loved characters on the show. Brick please return.

If the trailer for this season of Below Deck is any indication (clip above), we're definitely going to see a different side of Kate Chastain. One heated moment in particular caught our eye when she and Ashton Pienaar appear to get into it as the bosun tells the chief stew, "Everybody feels that way about you, Kate!"

The chief stew has experienced plenty of drama in her six seasons of Below Deck, so what was it about Season 7 that finally sent her over the edge? Luckily, The Daily Dish was able to get the scoop from Kate herself during an interview along with Captain Lee Rosbach in New York City on October 14.

"This season there's more drama than most seasons, I think. I didn't realize it until looking back and saying, 'Oh my gosh, that happened and that happened,'" Kate explained. "And it just got to a point where I felt like the people I was working with were too disrespectful and too much, and I wanted to be out of that situation."

Captain Lee told The Daily Dish that he had no idea any of this was going on during the charter season. "I just wanted to know where my coffee was," the Below Deck boss recalled. "That's the first I heard about it when my coffee didn't show up in the morning. I didn't know. So I didn't really have a thought. They said, 'Kate's not here.' I said, 'No, forget about that. That's not right.'"

Kate acknowledged just how unprecedented her actions were this season. "Yeah, I've never jumped ship in six seasons, and there have been plenty of situations where it would have been great," she told The Daily Dish. "This [season] was extra dramatic." 041b061a72
