FtL 113 – Osbournes Reloaded

This week’s failed pilot TL;DR:
The Osbournes who aren’t Ozzy drag Ozzy into a 50s style variety show. In 2006. An ill-conceived mess with a stunt that goes as badly as everyone should have expected.



Remember back in the mid 2000’s when we were all in love with the dysfunctional antics of the Osbourne family? Then remember by the late 2000’s when we were all completely over them? Well they didn’t!

In 2009 the Osbournes decided that the world hadn’t had enough of them yet and offered this attempt at a weekly live variety hour. The world has, so far, not responded.

…and then, for one fleeting moment, Kelly Osbourne saw herself as if for the first time. And she didn’t like it.

Be grateful. He was doing Juno next week.

His look there? Definitely the look you want on your future husband’s face on your wedding day.

The pot plant of love. (Check minute 48:50 of the podcast for Alex’s further ruminations on wedding pot plants.)

It wasn’t the good sort of tension.

The only shot of Buff Canapé Dude.

Not to victim blame, but these people came voluntarily to the taping of an Osbourne family variety show. They deserve worse than this.
