"Bubbles??!?! Sharon, I'm the Prince of Fucking Darkness!" -- Yes, just one of the lines from the MTV series, The Osbournes. I really had no preconceived idea as to who Ozzy Osbourne was, I mean, aside from the biting the head off the bat fiasco a gazillion years ago. Oh, I guess i know about the Ozzfest too, but if you were to hold me down until I came up with an Ozzy Osbourne song, we would have been there a while. That being said, I LOVE this series. It's a full addiction now, I think. I've not missed a show and when I was out to dinner last Tuesday night, I made a point of saying, "I have to be home by 9:30...it's very important (whisper)...the Osbournes are on." Luckily, my friend understood as she's heard many different folks praising it.

Anyway, this show is a hoot. It's reality based...meaning the Osbourne family has cameras in their house to record their statements, actions, arguments, etc. Very, very funny. I think it's especially funny because he is a famous guy...who is probably NOTHING like his onstage character. Talking to his daughter about going to the gynocologist was a hoot. The relationship between he and his wife Sharon gets me giggling at times too. Oh, and the family pet situation is funny too...Sharon, the wife, has a penchant for taking in wayward animals. Consequently, they have several dogs and several cats...which, in one episode, were seen poopin' and peeing all over the place, which pissed Ozzy off to no end. He told Sharon "No more!". We see a scene a few minutes later where she's telling one of the kids that she knows of another cat that needs a home. The kid says, "But dad said, 'no more.'" Sharon says, "He'll never notice." Which from what I can tell, he hasn't. The two siamese-y cats are quite different, but Ozzy has no clue. :-)

Check it out if you get a chance. It's all good. :-)
