Anyone else watch this kick ass show? Last night's episode was so damn funny it was on the border of comedic genious. Ozzy rules.

I think this show is a riot. I don't think I have ever heard an ENTIRE family swear like these people do. A classic show to be sure. Everyone should check it out if they have not already.

I never got a chance to see this, it sounded like a great concept though. MTV's scheduling is sort of like, "Whenever we feel like airing it," so it's hard to know when to catch it.

They air this show at all sorts of weird times. The new episodes air on Tuesdays at 10:30 (or 10). They also play it on Thursday (I think) and again on Sunday at around 9-10 p.m. Do yourself a favor and check it out ASAP. They are so damn funny it's amazing. Sharon (the mom) swears like a champ (the best is when the neighbors are playing "The Whole World is in His Hands" at about 1 am and she comes out and goes *Oh holy fu cking hell*). And Ozzy, oh man is he funny. Sometimes they show him just wandering around. In the last episode he is walking around trying nto throw something out. He goes to 2 garbage cans without garbage bags in them, and he tries to put new bags in...oh lord, you have to see it. It looks like he doesn't even know where he is.

Other good ****: I really like Greg the Bunny. I think puppets are really funny anyway, and some of their lines are really damn funny. It's a cool premise and I like the cast a lot. I hope this one makes it. Another keeper is Andy Richter Controls the Universe. Really creative, and it keeps Andy in an enviornment that made him so damn funny on Conan.

Well, I saw my first episode last night - the "loud neighbor" episode. "Pat Boone was such a lovely neighbor, such a wonderful man." Hahahaha...

It's comical and a little horrifying to see how massively fubar Ozzy is...he can't even walk straight! His kids are mutants - his wife is the only one that's close to normal and because of the company she's kept all these years, she curses like a sailor...the whole family does!

It's really weird to see how casual they are in their interactions with each other, too. Ozzy and his wife totally don't parent their kids. But yeah, if there were ever a perfect "Say no to drugs" commercial, this show is it...

I love this show!!! I just caught the first 3 episodes all in a row today. (Gotta love MTV program scheduling.) A riot. The neighbors singing Michael rode the boat ashore just seemed too surreal to be true. And the great thing is you never really have to worry about missing an episode since MTV will show it like a million times in one week.

I saw the first episode last night. MTV Europe started airing it last night actually, right before Jackass.

Man...this show is some very funny stuff. Ozzy, while admittedly messed up, seems like a genuinely nice guy and he's kids seem oaky too..and amazingly casual, none of the footage seemed "acted" at all.

The cursing and physical violence the family does..man, reminds me of my family, so I can relate smile.gif

Ozzy's wife is definitely the brains of the family. let's not forget she's the primus motor behind Ozzfest and has managed bands like Smashing Pumpkins etc. (actually I think right after they got succesful and Billy Corgan got a big head, she dropped them and said something like that Corgan is ****ing brat smile.gif) Good to see that Ozzy's got someone taking care of the money for him..then again you know how women can get when you give'em too much power on that stuff.

Yeah, Ozzy's wife is TOTALLY no-nonsense, it's pretty funny. I saw the preview for the next episode where Ozzy cracks down on his kids for smoking weed in the house, and Jack storms out on the conversation like a little brat. Here's a KID who's starting his own friggin' record label, for crying out loud - talk about messed up! He doesn't even know his head from his ass, yet...let alone running a label.

So strange, how families with obscene amounts of money work.

I think the show will be providing us with many classic one-liners. In the first episode, where Jack is complaining to Ozzy the father of the family looks utterly dazed and says something like "I love you all more than life...but you are all ****ing crazy". Classic!

K-dogg, did you notice that Ozzy's wife is also producing the sitcom.

I imagine her producer's role is a degree of safety to make sure that nothing truly scandalous is shown on the show...you just KNOW there's stuff that hits the cutting room floor because it's way too bizarre for television smile.gif
