Chaotic and unconventional

Everybody knows the Osbournes — the off-the-wall family of rock star Ozzy Osbourne.
Vh1 brings to you the international hit reality series The Osbournes. The series airs every Monday to Friday at 8.30 pm.

The show, which stars Ozzy Osbourne, his wife and manager Sharon, their 17-year-old daughter Kelly and 16-year-old son Jack, follows the daily ins and outs of the rocker’s family.

This sitcom is one of the most successful programmes. So it’s time for the Bradys, the Cosbys to step aside, as the Osbournes are television's most infamous family.

Plus they are real and almost too raw for broadcast. Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly and Jack Osbourne might shout, curse and throw things around but no one can deny that
this family loves each other, even if they show their affection in unexpected and alternate ways.

Reflections of life

Watch The Glass House starring Leelee Sobieski, Diane Lane, Stellan Skarsgard and Rita Wilson on May 5 at 9 pm on HBO. When Ruby and her younger brother Rhett’s parents are killed in a car accident, Erin and Terry Glass, become their guardians.

The Glasses promise Ruby and Rhett a world of opulence and California fun-in-the-sun to help them forget the nightmare they have just experienced.

All they have to do is move into the Glasses’ gated house in picturesque Malibu. It seems there is nothing to be scared of until Ruby begins to suspect that Erin and Terry may not be the ideal guardians they seem.

But are her suspicions justified, or merely the perceptions of a rebellious teen with a fertile imagination? Unless she is absolutely sure, Ruby shouldn’t throw any stones... for what you don’t see in the Glass house can kill you.

Contrasting characters

The word ‘marriage’ fills every young girl’s heart with trepidation, anxiousness and doubt. Star Plus redefines these emotions in its brand new show, Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, which revolves around two girls, Rashi and Gopi, as they set out on their journey of marriage. The programme airs every Monday to Friday at 7 pm.

Gopi and Rashi are two young girls with diverse hopes, dreams and expectations from life. Raised by her despotic mami, Gopi is a naive, orphaned girl. She has always been ill-treated by her aunt and cousin. Being deprived of mother’s love all her life, Gopi lives with only one expectation from life — an affectionate life partner and a motherly sasuma.

Rashi, in contrast, always believes in having her own ways. She wants to get married in an affluent family. Her desires from life are quite averse to Gopi’s as she wishes to have a husband and a mother-in-law, who would always give in to her. Being Gopi’s cousin, Rashi has never been like a sister to her and has always treated her as a maid.

Two new faces will be essaying the role of the leads, Jiaa Maanek as Gopi and Rucha Hasabnis as Rashi. Will Rashi and Gopi get what they want or does destiny has something else in store for them? Tune into find out.
