Here’s Proof: They’re Not So Different After All

LA times: I’m not sure what I expected from “Britney and Kevin: Chaotic,” the Spears and Federline reality show that debuted Tuesday night on the UPN (with “second window” broadcasts set for MTV, its roommate in the House of Viacom) — something like “The Osbournes” or “Newlyweds,” I guess, but not the odd hybrid of “Truth or Dare,” “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and “The Blair Witch Project” it presented.
I certainly didn’t expect to find it as interesting as I did, in the way that, while it is a packaged work of popular entertainment, it affords a relatively open view of the person behind the packaging, in the familiar bad visual grammar of home video.
