Osbournes first season on DVD today; Ozzy bumps into Roseanne.
The first season of The Osbournes is out on DVD today in two forms. You can get the uncensored version and watch the series as it appeared on TV, or buy the censored version and hear every curse word just like the lucky folks in Canada did. Both versions are “jam-packed with funky/affectionate offshoots,” according to a review, which include commentary tracks, new footage, bloopers, and an “Ozzy Translator” that subtitles Ozzy’s words using text and drawings. Meanwhile, Ozzy’s camera crew recently ran into a camera crew from Roseanne’s new ABC reality TV show while both were shopping at Barney’s in Beverly Hills. An ABC exec called it “the ultimate reality moment.”
