It’s official: Even the Osbournes are getting tired of ”The Osbournes.” ”I’m sick of it,” huffs Kelly as she’s confronted by a now-familiar family portrait at the menu screen of the all-encompassing set The Osbournes: The First Season Uncensored. But while ”Osbournes” backlash kicked in rather swiftly, the reality show’s 10-episode charter season is as riotous and revealing as ever, especially the moments in which the clan’s patriarch is reduced from headbanger to housecleaner. Speaking of Oz, for those who couldn’t make out his seemingly backward-masked speaking style, the DVD provides a sporadic ”Ozzy Translator” and an option to ”de-bleep” the show – both of which spoil the fun of guesswork and take away from the show’s charmed-life simplicity (it’s amazing how much sweeter the F-word is when you don’t actually hear it a dozen times in a row). The rest of the extras – deleted scenes, bloopers, and some funny, if not particularly enlightening, commentary tracks from the family, primarily Sharon – are perfectly fine; we’d just like to see the famously remote-impaired Ozzy try to get them all to work.
