The Osbournes

Show Summary

Crazy, but hey that's how it goes. Millions of people living as foes--maybe it's not too late...to learn how to love, and forget how to hate!
The Cleavers, the Bradys, the Huxtables...and now the Osbournes. It's the next generation of family-oriented sitcom, a reality-based comedy that follows the lives of Ozzy Osbourne and his family. There's no script, the situations are real, the family is normal...well, sort of.

  • SHARON!!! Reality TV at its Best

    7.6
    This is the show which was one of the greatest reality shows, is what started the trend of celebrities having their lives and family's taped. Its safe to say this is the best and most entertaining and it ended without being dragged on and no ruined. Theirs no doubt when you watch it, this isnt the Cosby's, more like a live version of the Simpson's, but way worse. Even though you cant understand Ozzy half the time he is the most entertaining brain dead alcoholic you will ever see. For those of you who don't know who Ozzy is he was the original lead singer of Black Sabbath and had a very successful solo career after wards. Gene Simmons wish's his show was as good. But Gene Simmons has nothing on Ozzy when it comes to is music and Family.moreless

  • "Ahead of it's time" comes from the shows' place in televisions' early days of reality TV,

    No one can deny that this show is funny. Some feel the shows' comedic value come from Ozzy himself, what with his burnt-out mannerisms. Some stand by the family's love-able disfunctionalism. Whatever you draw from "The Osbournes" you cannot deny that this show was a pioneer for reality shows that are popular today. Not only that, but the entire thing was original. It could also be classified as a unique rendition of the "Brady Bunch", or "Leave It to Beaver" (both of which it usually compared to) with a realistic twist. "The Osbournes" is one of the best TV shows in history, reality-esque and otherwise. With a good rock/jazz soundtrack, a fascinating family, and great DVD's to boot, it's hard to go wrong.moreless
  • Everyone watched this show it seemed like, especially season 1 & 2.

    9.2
    I like season 1 & 2 the best, it was a different ways of seeing Ozzy. It was weird a first to see him as a husband and a father, when we are used to seeing him on stage, but I think people got used to it fast. It got a little old the last season, when they had the staged thing with the dog, and then lines, it made you wonder if it was all fake. I hope not because season allowed you to see Ozzy\'s life in a different way, and I think it caused alot of people to love Sharon Osbourne.moreless
  • This one's gone to the dogs. Woof-woof!

    7.6
    Among the reality shows featuring celebrities, this one's the most interesting to see during a late night when its only competition was against infomercials. Ozzy is portrayed as a mumbling dad much like that Hanna-Barbera cartoon papa bear (sorry the name escapes me). He shares a few insights for someone who's lived a rock star life. But Sharon Osbourne probably profited the most from the TV series. While not the perfect mom, she got to show her personality and carried many episodes. The kids are alright, and have their own quirky personality. Overall that works well with the MTV styled reality presentation.



    My favorite episodes involve the pets. Whenever I see them dealing with and cleaning up after their numerous canines, I can relate with Ozzy, having to pick up after Angus and Kitty. When everyone else bores me, they'll throw in a doggy and I'll be a happy camper.



    I'll admit I stopped watching around Season Two, since these kind of shows are self-contained and only good in small doses. There are some uncensored versions on DVD, but the regular bleeping in the standard version does add entertainment value.moreless
