1. There Goes The Neighborhood
We meet the family as they move into their new Beverly Hills home. After problems with the furniture, Ozzy displays his dismay with a tricky remote control. Later, Ozzy performs on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", despite his nervousness. Kelly and Jack have a love-hate relationship and physically fight throughout the episode. The show closes with Sharon trying to sort through her funny family issues.
2. Bark At The Moon
The Osbournes are settling into their new house as their pets settle too. Some rambunctious pets ruin the furniture and leave "presents" on the ground. Sharon enlists a pet therapist to help the situation. Also, Kelly is pulled over by cops due to poor driving.
3. For The Record
The Osbourne clan visits the "Big Apple" sans Jack. As Ozzy makes many guest appearances on shows such as NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and TRL, Jack goes to a "hippy" camp where he apparently breaks all the rules and has a miserable time. Then the family makes it home in time for Kelly's 17th birthday. Complete with cauldrons and contortionists, Kelly has a little too much fun and gets a tatoo. Meanwhile, a girl sleeps in Jack's room and the door is locked.
4. Won't You Be My Neighbor?
The epsiode begins with Kelly venting her anger to Ozzy because she has a ob/gyn appointment that she doesn't want to go to.Read more ›
HOWEVER: I had to write this particular review to let people know something about the episodes...they are NOT EXACTLY THE SAME as you've seen on MTV!--For some reason, MIRAMAX doesn't seem to have the same "clearance rights" as MTV, since I have spotted 6(!) alterations made to at least 5 of the 10 episodes!! For the nit-pickers out there (like me), I'll list the ones I've found:
1) When Sharon orders Jack to clean up Lola's alien "mess," he NO LONGER sings, "Who Let the Dogs Out."
2) When Kelly nearly sets fire to the kitchen, Ozzy NO LONGER sings the Talking Heads' song title, "Burning Down the House."
3) On the tour bus during the Christmas holidays, when Jack serves Ozzy spare ribs, Ozzy NO LONGER mimics the slogan/jingle: "I want my baby-back, baby-back, baby-back--" (you know the rest).
4) When the ...bubbles appear onstage, Sharon NO LONGER sings, "Tiny Bubbles"...
5) The noisy next-door neighbors sing "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands"--TWICE--replacing the (heavily?) copyrighted, "My Girl."
6) During the making of Ozzy's "Moulin Rouge" spoof-video, he NO LONGER tries the line: "Molcha-Choca-lotta (whatever)," or doesn't even mention "STAR WARS"...that scene is COMPLETELY missing.
Don't get me wrong...these anti-infringement "modifications" DO NOT take away from the sheer enjoyment of these 20-minute episodes, but to someone (like myself) who has obsessively watched them countless times on MTV, the changes are obvious...and even sometimes painful to watch.
This DVD set (the uncensored one doesn't have words bleeped out) contains the first season, ten episodes of Ozzy Osbourne, heavy metal rocker; his strong, smart wife-manager Sharon; son Jack and pink-haired daughter Kelly. (And a lot of pets, too) Food fights, pet therapy, teen partying, settling into a new home, dogs messing up the furniture, stolen thongs, and much more pepper this interesting, entertaining TV show. The Partridge Family they ain't... thank God.
What makes this middle-aged rocker and his family different from other fly-on-the-wall reality shows? Maybe it's their honesty, maybe it's because they were were the first. With the abundance of the F-word and the don't-kiss-up attitudes, the Osbournes are a breath of fresh air on TV in general. They remain perhaps the only good reality show out there.
Even if you weren't a fan of Black Sabbath, you'll quickly become acquainted with Ozzy: eccentric, funny, and profanely sweet at times. Sharon is intensely loyal and loving to her hubby, sometimes acid-tongued, witty, and capable of being as peculiar as he is. Jack and Kelly serve as exceptional counterpoints to their parents, sometimes petulant, sometimes disobedient, sometimes just doing their best to rebel (clubbing, getting tattoos, and so on). They can be as witty as Sharon, and their exchanges sometimes just blossom into hilarity -- sometimes unintentionally ("I feel like I'm invisible" "Shut up!Read more ›
