Throwback Thursday-The Osbournes (2002-2005)

One of the more fascinating things about the human species is that we are extremely curious in regards to how the other half lives. Especially those who are famous and wealthy.

One of the mini genres of the overall reality television genre are the reality shows based around the lives of celebrities. From 2002-2005, The Osbournes gave audiences a glimpse of the inner workings of their family and their world. The show centered on Ozzy, the former front man of Black Sabbath,  his wife Sharon and their younger children, Kelly and Jack. Ozzy was the mumbling, bumbling father. Sharon was the no-nonsense mother. Kelly and Jack were simply teenagers.

During its heyday, it was the most popular show on MTV. What made it so popular is that despite the money and the fame, The Osbournes were an ordinary family dealing with ordinary problems.

I recommend it.
