KICKIN' BACK WITH THE OZ MAN

As I suspected, the Ozzie Osbourne show on MTV was fine. My favorite scene involved Ozzie sitting at home and mumbling along as he watched himself perform on the Jay Leno show. In the next chair was his black, middle-aged male security guard who knew not what to make of the screech and bash coming from the TV set.

In case you didn't know it, Ozzy is about 80 years old and has a pronounced palsey shake. So many things to learn that VH1 never covered!

The only thing that bugged me was that many of the best gags were explained in the preview articles. Doesn't anyone recall how to write a preview article that doesn't ruin the best bits of a show? The whole Rosebud mystery never would have stood a chance in this decade.
