As a kid, I grew up with Ren and Stimpy, which aired on Nickelodeon. Because that is a young adult/children's channel, Ren and Stimpy had to be molded into the image of a relatively appropriate show. And I think because of this censorship, the show was actually able to become so iconic. It is easy to be blatant and crude, but when you have to work around certain obstacles to get your point across, that is when things become more interesting, and more creative. The beauty of the Ren and Stimpy episodes aired on Nickelodeon was the fact that they could still manage to be hilariously crude, but it was on a level where kids wouldn't get it, while adults would and could laugh and think "Hey, that's really clever. Stupid, but clever." With that in mind, if you take away the need to overcome the obstacle of portraying a message without infringing on the censorship rules, you take away the essence and creativity of Ren and Stimpy. And that is basically what is happening with "The Lost Episodes". I watched one and it was decidedly not worth my time. They are extremely crude, uncreative, and uninspired. Even the introduction by the creators was drab. Though, I will admit, there were a few times I laughed. I could see someone watching it with their friends just to laugh at how ridiculous and different it is. Sort of like a "Oh my goodness, this is so bad!" kind of laughter. I would not recommend this DVD if you are a hardcore fan of the "old" Ren and Stimpy. This DVD encompasses nothing of the great past episodes. It's just a collection of very adult situations, a poorly executed experimentation with how weird and estranging the creators could make Ren and Stimpy, both the characters and the show itself. Basically, it's too much "adult situations" and too little plot, innuendo, and hilarity.
