The Osbournes 8/12 WTF

WTF was with the ending? The dog being dead was staged? The whole show was staged? It showed them ending the show with the cameramen and everything and then it showed an earlier scene being reshot over and over? Not to mention during the show there was technical problem somewhere and they replayed about 5 minutes of the show over again.

i think the last episode was staged, but i think the scene where ozzy was saying "...i think you're all mad" was redone on purpose...sort of like "re-takes" in pixars movies...either way, good show.

At first I thought just the finale was staged, but then they showed that clip you're talking about, which was from season 1 or 2. So who knows, maybe the whole show as staged!

This has to be like one of the biggest jokes ever pulled on the masses. I wish I had thought of it.

If it was re-done, it had to have been redone back in season 1 or 2. They had shops of Jack in that clip when he was about 50 pounds lighter then he is now.

People are going to act differently if there are a bunch of cameras following them anyways...

I was wondering those same things myself. I'm not a regular viewer, so I wasn't sure if they were playing off something that had happened before or what. Glad to know that I'm not the only one who didn't quit get it.

I didn't even think about the episode being stage, I was just like WTF just happened. I was so mad after "Jack killed the dog" that I turned off the TV and picked up a book. Well ok, I didn't pick up a book but I did turn off the tv. Glad to hear he's not a dog killer.

I am so glad that epsiode truned out to be a fake. The creepiest moment of TV of all time had to be when I thought Jack had KILLED that dog. It was brutal. I guess the joke is on us though.

How long until someone sues? I mean, technically MTV mislead us and presented a product as something it was not ... I think it's a lot more of a legit claim then trying to sue McDonalds for getting fat....

Question

so does this imply that all of the episodes were all "faked"?

I mean, I watched most of them, they seemed contrived, but you know... I thought that some of it was real.

You know, how you think that the stuff on Jerry Springer is real and then you need to slap yourself?
