Product Description

Heavy Metal legend Ozzy Osbourne invites you into his home, and every outrageous moment with the notorious rocker and his colorful family is captured here in MTV's highest-rated show THE OSBOURNES -_ THE FIRST SEASON! There's no script, the situations are real, the family is completely normal...well, as normal as they can be considering that dear ol' dad is the self-proclaimed Prince of Darkness! Along with every wild episode from the recordbreaking first season, this must-have DVD collection includes exclusive, never-beforeseen footage! Here's your chance to relive the fun of each episode while seeing what went on behind the scenes and hearing what the censors wouldn't allow on MTV !

As the second season aired, the decline in TV ratings and the tepid sales of Kelly Osbourne's album indicated that the Osbourne family's 15 minutes were just about up. But this two-disc set is an indispensable time-capsule keepsake of that brief and shining moment when Ozzy and his family put their indelible stamp on pop culture as the stars of the first reality sitcom. For addled heavy-metal pioneer Ozzy, his fiercely devoted wife and manager Sharon, and two (of three) of their children--petulant misfit Jack and the more flamboyant pink-haired Kelly--it was a very good year. They were MTV's top-rated series ever. They graced magazine covers. They were championed by no less a moral arbiter than Dan Quayle. Even President George W. Bush got into the act, toasting Ozzy at the annual Washington Press Club soiree: "Ozzy, mom loves your stuff." The Osbournes is the kind of series for which the phrase "instantly addictive" was coined. The idea seemed positively batty: Chronicle the lives of the Osbournes as they settle in to their new Beverly Hills home. They ain't the Clampetts, as the crates marked "Dead Things" indicates. Persistent use of the F word and other obscenities (not bleeped on the uncensored DVD) aside, the Osbournes at heart are a close-knit, loving family. Or, as Ozzy so tenderly puts it, "I love you more than life itself, but you're all f------ mad." Episode 4 bears him out, as Sharon and Jack declare war on their noisy next-door neighbors with airborne foodstuffs. These 10 endlessly repeatable episodes are enhanced by this features-heavy DVD; among its most inspired extras is an "Ozzy translator." The first season of The Osbournes was a lightning-in-a- bottle phenomenon whose success has yet to be duplicated, not by the shameless Anna Nicole, not by clueless Liza, not even by the Osbournes themselves. --Donald Liebenson

If you've never seen "The Osbournes" on MTV, then you probably wouldn't be looking it up on AMAZON...Suffice it to say, these 2 DVD's are the BEST Source material for THE rock legend, Ozzy Osbourne.
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.

Welcome to the home and domain of the Prince of Darkness and his loving family. No matter what the ratings or sales, the Osbourne family has become one of the focial points of American attention and probably will stay that way for some time. They're a fantastic bunch of people.
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!

Okay, first things first -- the DVDs allow you to enable the 'censor' beep, even in the 'Uncensored' DVD version; if you want the censored version, enable it.
I wasn't a huge fan when the series started, but watching one of the Osbourne-marathons on MTV got me hooked. This is a two DVD set, with episodes 1-9 on Disc One, and episode 10 and the extras on Disc Two. As I mentioned above, you can enable or disable the censoring for each episode. It will remember which setting you enabled if you watch a couple of episodes at a time, so you don't have to go back and re-enable it in one sitting. It does default to off, though, so you will have to turn the censor back on if your DVD player was turned off.
In addition to the Censor for each episode, there is an Ozzy-translator; great stuff.
The extras include typical fare: access to 'restricted' websites, bloopers -- which I think are better than some of the episodes, and bios. I'm looking forward to the Season 2 set!!

Oh boy. There goes the neighborhood...
I really do not care for MTV these days. If they played actual music videos like they did in the old days (was it that long ago?), maybe I'd watch more. However, whenever "The Osbournes" are on, I find myself glued to the TV. Well, now the entire first season is yours to own on DVD.
**NOTE: Do NOT get the "censored version." I know people like the bleeps, but there is an option on the DVD that allows you to listen to it censored if you like. So, now you have the chance to hear them both! So go with the "uncensored version" if you want the best buy.**
There's no real storyline, there's no cute little set-up, and there's no "phony characters" to mix things up. This is as real as it gets. Everything you thought Ozzy's life would be is the EXACT opposite. He's stuck in hell and his family is the main reason. With a house full of various animals, a son and daughter who fight on a daily basis, and a wife who seems to be the only one who knows how to run things, "The Osbournes" is an unpredictable show with surprises around every corner. But as dysfunctional and weird this family seems, there is love... or at least I think there is...
The complete first season is a success in my eyes. Every single episode is classic and you'll want to watch them over and over again. If you're having a bad day, you just have to pop this in and you will feel so much better as you laugh along with this whacky family. Each episode has a very high replay level and you're bound to catch something new that you missed the first time around.
This DVD set is fantastic. I was surprised to learn that you can watch it CENSORED if you like.
