A poor imitation of "The Osbournes" - but not as funny or original, 18 August 2006
Author: MovieAddict2016 from UK

At one time during the 1980s Hulk Hogan was one of the most popular figures in the entertainment industry. He was a famous wrestler who tried to branch out into films (and failed) with numerous projects. As the '90s came and went, Hulk's fans faded out - and by 2000 he's nothing more than a has-been. So what better way to boost his popularity again than start up a new reality TV show about Hulk and his family? Hey, I've got an idea - we could call it "Hogan Knows Best," which doesn't really make any sense. (Are they implying Hulk is a mother?) The show is a carbon copy rip-off of MTV's "The Osbournes." A few years ago MTV camera crew followed Ozzy, Sharon, his daughter Kelly and son Jack around in their multi-million dollar mansion. Now VH1 is doing the same thing with Hulk. What's lame is that the show is like "The Osbournes" in almost every way - Hulk has a wife who loves dogs, a daughter who wants to be a singer (and is hopelessly spoiled), and a weirdo son. The problems? Well for one Ozzy is hilarious and fun to watch, whereas Hulk...isn't. Give a guy with drug abuse and a deteriorated mind a TV show? Comedy gold. Give an ex-wrestler who wears a bandanna on his head 24/7 and wears t-shirts with his own face on them a TV show? Total crap. Hulk's wife isn't as complimentary to Hulk as Sharon was to Ozzy in their TV show. She comes across as an annoying spoiled princess isolated in her mansion. Kelly Osbourne was annoying but it worked to the show's advantage - Hulk's daughter is just plain bland. And I'm not even going to start on his son. This is essentially a really, really basic (and really, really poor) concept for a TV show, and VH1 should be ashamed for thinking they could ever pull this over on people without instantly drawing comparisons to "The Osbournes." It's a lame, pathetic show and just makes Hulk and his family come across as money-grabbing fame-chasers with no future.
