Heavy Metal legend Ozzy Osbourne invites you into his home, and every outrageous moment with the notorious rocker and his colorful family is captured here in MTV's highest-rated show THE OSBOURNES -_ THE FIRST SEASON! There's no script, the situations are real, the family is completely normal...well, as normal as they can be considering that dear ol' dad is the self-proclaimed Prince of Darkness! Along with every wild episode from the recordbreaking first season, this must-have DVD collection includes exclusive, never-beforeseen footage! Here's your chance to relive the fun of each episode while seeing what went on behind the scenes and hearing what the censors wouldn't allow on MTV ! As the second season aired, the decline in TV ratings and the tepid sales of Kelly Osbourne's album indicated that the Osbourne family's 15 minutes were just about up. But this two-disc set is an indispensable time-capsule keepsake of that brief and shining moment when Ozzy and his family put their indelible stamp on pop culture as the stars of the first reality sitcom. For addled heavy-metal pioneer Ozzy, his fiercely devoted wife and manager Sharon, and two (of three) of their children--petulant misfit Jack and the more flamboyant pink-haired Kelly--it was a very good year. They were MTV's top-rated series ever. They graced magazine covers. They were championed by no less a moral arbiter than Dan Quayle. Even President George W. Bush got into the act, toasting Ozzy at the annual Washington Press Club soiree: "Ozzy, mom loves your stuff." The Osbournes is the kind of series for which the phrase "instantly addictive" was coined. The idea seemed positively batty: Chronicle the lives of the Osbournes as they settle in to their new Beverly Hills home. They ain't the Clampetts, as the crates marked "Dead Things" indicates. Persistent use of the F word and other obscenities (not bleeped on the uncensored DVD) aside, the Osbournes at heart are a close-knit, loving family. Or, as Ozzy so tenderly puts it, "I love you more...

What better sequel to 1900 HOUSE-â€“modern family, Victorian home-â€“than a prequel? In THE FRONTIER HOUSE, three 21st-century families hit Montana, circa 1880-â€“no off-screen conveniences, set, or cast trailers, just their great-grandparents' world, a thinking man's Survivor. Based on the sweeping success of PBS' 1900 House, producer Simon Shaw applies the same standards of accuracy and authenticity to this imaginative sequel, giving viewers a glimpse into frontier America during the years proceeding the 1882 Homestead Act when land out West was "free for the taking." Appropriately billed a "docu-soap," Frontier House is part of PBS' House Series, blending documentary and reality programming as three modern American families test their grit and resourcefulness during a five month immersion as pioneers in the Montana Territory. The Clune, Glenn, and Brooks families' daily lives are recorded and condensed into six one-hour episodes chronicling the hardships and, in some cases, humor of building cabins, planting gardens, digging outhouses, chopping wood, and tending livestockâ€”all while bearing the strain of close familial living and neighborly interdependence necessary for survival. While the film's bickering between families grows wearisome, narrator Kathryn Walker provides a historical context, explaining that such squabbles were typical of homesteading communities. PBS deserves kudos for its meticulous and painstaking commitment to the highest caliber of credibility, employing a team of historic preservation specialists to attend to every detail of the series. Highlights include the touching, actual wedding of Nate and Kristen Brooks, and a compelling "Making Of" bonus feature that caps the overall effort with charm and appeal.

THE MANOR HOUSE takes a fascinating look at the grand British class system of the early 1900s. Resembling prior cultural-reality series THE 1900 HOUSE and FRONTIER HOUSE, this unique series includes three distinct classes: aristocratic family, upper servants, and lower servants, who must act according to etiquette, not just the rigors or technical realities of the time. Nineteen contemporary Britons were selected from 8,000 applicants.
This 1993 Playmate of the Year splashed headlines long before she exposed" her bizarre behavior and oftentimes hilarious antics on her own reality TV show. The cameras followed her around like a little puppy dog and recorded her on dates, on trips and at home. But she was always good at baring her soul and this uncensored DVD makes for hours of Anna Nicole's unique brand of entertainment. 14 episodes on 2 DVDs. 2002/color/4 hrs., 53 min/NR.

Every incredible episode from the debut season of the reality show supreme-Survivor- where 16 ordinary Americans compete for one million dollars by surviving. The contestants are marooned 20 miles off the coast of Borneo and forced to fend for themselves in hopes of outlasting the others in the group which meets every 3 days to vote one person off the island and the show. 1999-2000/color/11 hrs, 4 min/NR/fullscreen. Here's where it all began. The first season of Survivor dominated the ratings in the summer of 2000, helped spur the reality-TV craze, and inspired countless water-cooler jokes about getting voted off the island. The first season established the formula that would continue, with sometimes surprising variations, over numerous subsequent seasons: 16 people intended to represent the American mosaic are stranded far from civilization (in this case, the island of Pulau Tiga, off the coast of Borneo), struggle for food and shelter, compete in a series of physical and mental challenges, and at the end of each three-day episode vote out one of their fellow contestants. After 39 days, the one sole survivor who is able to outwit, outplay, and outlast the others wins a million-dollar prize. Because the Survivor craze preceded the craze for complete-season DVD boxed sets, the first season was represented on DVD and video by a 150-minute highlights package called Season One: The Greatest and Most Outrageous Moments. Now, all 13 episodes are available in a five-disc set (the fifth disc is ...Outrageous Moments) that contains every challenge, every political maneuver, every next-episode preview and previous-episode recap, every tribal council including the famous finale, and the reunion show. If you started watching Survivor in the Australian Outback or later, this is the perfect opportunity to see how host Jeff Probst, scheming Richard Hatch, tough truck driver Sue Hawk, ex-Navy SEAL Rudy Boesch, athletic Kelly Wiglesworth, and the others got the ball rolling. If you did watch the first season, here's your c...
The complete season of Survivor: All-Stars. Billed as "the greatest Survivor ever" when it launched following the Super Bowl in January 2004, Survivor All-Stars broke new ground for the hit reality series by bringing back 18 of its most famous (and infamous) characters from the previous seven installments to battle it out in a quest for affirmation or redemption (and, of course, the million-dollar prize). Half the fun was seeing who was picked to return, and there were many tasty selections: original winner Richard (natch) from Borneo; Colby, Jerri, and Tina from the Australian Outback; Ethan, Lex, and Big Tom from Africa; and the newest alumnus, Rupert from the just-completed Pearl Islands. (There were, of course, many omissions, such as Mike Skupin, who deserved a second chance after falling into the fire in Australia.) Right from the beginning, it was clear that this Survivor was going to be different. Because people now knew each other (from sharing a previous game, watching on TV, or mixing at Survivor-related functions), some of the schemers were quickly sniffed out and snuffed out, and players were more aggressive about creating alliances (which sometimes overlapped, but hey, it's only a problem if you get caught). In addition, because no one wanted to see someone win a second million dollars, previous champions found that they had targets on their backs. As a result, there was an entirely new wave of power players. Along the way there were some surprising and very emotional developments (which had the unfortunate side effect of killing some of the show's action) and the first on-screen Survivor romance. In the end, Survivor All-Stars didn't live up to its billing as the best ever (that title would remain with season 2 in the Australian Outback), but it did bring a new twist and some genuinely memorable moments to a long-running series. The DVD set adds significant value to the season, including some welcome behind-the-scenes info on the series as a whole. The bonus footage consists of much longer ...

Tina, Colby, Jerri, Elizabeth..they're all here in the second season of this popular reality TV series. Survivor: The Australian Outback, the second season of the reality-show titan, remains the best season in the series' history. But assuming most people already know who won the million-dollar prize, is there still any appeal to watching on DVD? Yep, because first, the cast was exceptional, claiming no fewer than five of the 18 participants in Survivor All Stars and a few others who could have been. The group included Texas powerhouse Colby Donaldson, villainess-bartender-"aspiring actress" Jerri Manthey; tough Michael Skupin; Keith Famie, the chef who couldn't make rice; buff personal trainer Alicia Calaway; sweet Elisabeth Filarski (who as Elisabeth Hasselbeck later became a TV personality on The View) and her protector Rodger Bingham; mom Tina Wesson; savvy Jeff Varner; and pretty Amber Brkich. Second, the show was still new and the Australian Outback has an appealing freshness when compared to so many subsequent seasons in which the competitors are continually trying to game the system. The challenges are still exciting to watch (though they might seem relatively tame). There was also the beef-jerky incident, the Colby-Jerri dynamic, Rodger's cliff jump, and the domination of the Kucha tribe before the game turned. You might have forgotten many of these developments over the years, though the season was represented on home video by the 2000 highlights compilation The Greatest and Most Outrageous Moments (also included in this set for completists), which now feels a lot like the dreary recap episode that drags down almost every season. The bonus features are pretty good as well. Colby again proves he's top dog by recording commentary for two episodes with host Jeff Probst (who calls the Texan "one of my closest friends"). A more titillating combination is the commentary by Kimmi Kappenberg, Alicia, and Michael for two episodes, including the famous finger-wagging incident and Michael's misfortune....
