Of course, there is reality and there is reality. Though not dealt with onscreen, it has since been reported that Jack has undergone rehab for a substance abuse problem, a tragic family legacy. This puts something of a damper on watching the "wacky" antics. But as with the first season, The Osbournes is fun to visit, with cameos by, among others, Natalie Portman, Mandy Moore, P. Diddy, and Marilyn Manson adding to the cachet. But thank god you don't live there. As with the first season, this two-disc package contains such inspired extras as a translator that provides subtitles for the addled Ozzy's profanity-laced dialogue and a preferred bleep-free viewing option.--Donald Liebenson

As season three has now started, hopefully the second half of season two will be released onto DVD along with the Christmas special.
Is there a house out there, that has sibling that don't fight? How about a spouse with a few problems? How about problematic children or teenagers? If you do than you need to write a book. Because what you see on the Osbournes is the truth of a real life family. We all don't use their language, but there problems are typical. I especially loved the re-newing of the vows. That was very special, especially after Ossie reunited Sharon with her Dad! Than her Dad gave her away at the wedding.
Ossie, you are so special.
I also could identify, with Sharon, and the entire family during her heath crisis. I have been there, and no matter what a family looks like on the outside, this family pulled together to get her through, and she maintained as much of a normal life as she could for them. I LOVE THE OSBOURNES! WE COULD LEARN HOW TO LOVE FROM THIS FAMILY!
I highly recommend anyone to buy this. I have never been a fan of Ozzy's music but I love the show. I cannot wait for the 3rd season to come out.
The DVD itself is mostly like the first one. It has all 10 episodes of the season plus the option to turn on commentary by Sharon and either Aimee, Kelly, Ozzy, or Sharon's 4th child, Mimi (or Minnie?) the dog. The commentary isn't remarkable, though if you've seen all of the episodes a billion times (like me) you can just switch it on for something different while you watch the episodes. They don't say much (Sharon mostly says "I haven't seen this" or "Oh my g-d, I can't believe they put that in"). I'm not sure why they thought it was a good idea to have Aimee do commentary because all she does is say how stupid her family is and criticize whatever she sees. Ozzy will occasionally mutter and say "testing, testing," Kelly offers a few insights, and Mimi (or Minnie?Read more ›
Despite the barrage of four-letter words.
One of the things that comes across with crystal clarity is that this family really, truly, deeply loves each other. It's unquestionable and freshly without any sort of cynicism you see on pretty much every other reality show save "Queer Eye".
Next, due to a combination of the magic of editing and the family's natural timing, this stuff is freakin' hysterical. Ozzy's comments on the pandemic dog poo situation, Sharon's frequently lacerating comments on popular culture, and the epic bickering between the two kids is recognized by anyone who has ever been a sibling, or given birth to them.
The ability to censor the cursing is kinda fun. The bleeps are funny in their own way, when whole sentences seem to evaporate. But the unrestricted torrent of often-playful vulgarity is oh-so funny. When Ozzy berates the ocean...yes, the ocean...to quit encroaching on the fire he's trying to build in front of his Malibu home to cheer up the ill Sharon, I was giggling madly.
He's as serious as a heart attack, which makes it all the funnier. He's not cursing the fact the water is trying to extinguish the fire; he's actually expecting the waves to respond as he yells "F off!"
His idea to fish from the shore, using cheese as bait had me on the floor, because to Ozzy, it's common knowledge that "fish love cheese."
Dismiss any prejudice you may have towards this show, and watch these ten episodes (plus outtakes). This is very funny television.
