You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling towards you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
A few random thoughts about the guilty pleasure that is "The Osbournes":
Anyone find it somewhat interesting that the opening credits for the show start off by stating, "Starring Sharon Osbourne," and then ultimately ends with "and Ozzy Osbourne as the Dad"... well, is it just me, or is Sharon Osbourne getting higher billing (so to speak) than Ozzy?
To paraphrase Denis Leary, Kelly and Jack Osbourne are "a giant rehab festival just waiting to happen."
Did Ozzy ever have control of this family? If so, when did he lose it?
Watching "The Osbournes" is kind of like watching an auto accident - bad things have happened/are happening to the people involved in it, but you can't help but look.
Oh yeah, and the show's a lot more watchable and enjoyable than I thought it might be.

I think they did that as an homage to '50's family-based sitcoms.
You know, " ... and Jerry Mathers as ... The Beaver!"
Only seen a couple episodes this season (Ozzy and Sharon speak to their charming, lovable children about drugs and the family visiting Ozzy on tour), funny stuff. Whoever thought of doing a lounge version of "Crazy Train" for the opening credits should win a medal of honor. Who needs The Real World?
I read somewhere that there was a third Osbourne child who refused to take part in the show. Someone confirm please?
There are several Osbourne children. Actually, a few of them are on the show occasionally. Some of the background (unintroduced characters) are Ozzy's older kids. Jack and Kelly are just the ones that live at home.
Well, I know really like the idea of this property all fixed up and set up the way that I want it. I took my friends to see it because hopefully they aren't clouded by some romanticized notion of what it could be.
