So they blocked part 2 but here is a link to an Opie and Anthony episode where you can watch clips from the entire episode with commentary.
I cannot say enough how absolutely horrific this is.

My pal Samantha is an editor for this show. She tells me some real horror stories about what they DON'T put in the episodes.
That wasn't meant as a reply, but this is:
DON'T LEAVE US HANGING.
Your pal Samantha has a pretty evil job.
To be clear, I also want to hear more.
It's pretty horrible. There was an episode that they didn't air that they were going to do on this Nebraska woman who was floor to ceiling in garbage. She seemed fairly friendly and actually agreed to let them clean out the house fairly quick compared to others in the show. Underneath all the trash they found three dead dogs, a few dead cats, lots of rats and worst of all, a 30 years dead infants skeleton. They contacted the authorities and it turned out that the lady had been pregnant but no one knew about it. She stayed in when her water broke, it was a miscarriage and she never got rid of the body. She wasn't arrested, but she was committed. The producers took a vote among the staff and pretty much everyone said they refused to work on that episode again, so they cancelled that episode halfway through.
Sam wasn't actually on the scene, she is just an editor, chopping film, but she did see the B-roll of it.
Wow, that was even better/worse than what I was expecting.
Thanks for the story, Aelric. They probably made the right decision, I wouldn't want to watch that.

I would so love it if Matt introduced himself as "Extreme Cleaning Specialist" while presenting two handfuls of dynamite.

Well that certainly puts my slightly cluttered bedroom closet into perspective.

Basically she's a mentally ill person, and the local authorities don't do shit to keep her from bringing home more animals to torture. Her kids have been trying for years.
Screw that stupid blog, I found a better and more recent update:
Turns out she's not been allowed to have animals on her property since February this year, and will not be allowed to for at least another year.

The entire episode, with a bonus bunny hoarder.
All I'm getting is a quick look before it redirects me to shit sites.
The bunny hoarder was definitely overshadowed by this woman but his situation was pretty awful too, letting his dozens of hoarded rabbits utterly destroy a rental property, and having the owners survey the damage and the guy being completely flippant and defensive about what he'd done to their house. I was amazed at how collected the owners remained throughout the whole thing. Guess that's the power of fluffy bunnies

Holy shit, and I thought the woman who saved and routinely ate food three years past its expiration date was awful.

One of the more subtle horrors: the one sister who doesn't cry, she's got the thousand-yard stare. At 4:29-4:41... that's not a sane smile, that's a "Misery" smile. That's a "putting your family out of their misery" smile.
A rueful grin and crazy eyes that give a chilling hint of the amount of abuse they must have suffered as kids. I could stomach the shitpiles and sick animals, but that moment kinda stopped me cold. If

Aw, shit, I almost threw up my Froot Loops.

The worst episode. Although judging by Aelric's comments above, only the worst aired episode.
|Rodents of Unusual Size - 2011-08-23 |
Other amazing moments:
* finding the dead, flattened chicken corpse under a couple feet of shit
* the fact that she has pooped out 16 children and six of them are DEAD and she feels nothing over this
* the insane hambeast at the end who fights for her mother because one grandkid lied about what was going on and her mother telling her to beat the random son that was there for no real reason
* the absolute look of horror on the host's face

"I DONE HAD SIXTEEN KIDS, AND ONLY MANAGED TO KILL SIX OF THEM!"

Holy shit do I remember this episode. She had to be downright the most mentally disturbed individual that has appeared on this program with her removal from reality jarring towards the well-being of her family and animals.
Bunny guy almost reminds me of how defiant my own father can get; practically embracing infantile mannerisms and hypocritical behavior before returning to the stench filled den to brood in his own pity.
Rat man has to be one of the most sympathetic people that had appeared on the show, however.
I liked Rat Man. I felt really bad for him.
Rat Man genuinely loved his animals, and admitted that the situation had gotten beyond his control. That made it really depressing, because there was no schadenfreude, just tears all around.

This is beyond surreal. I can't finish it right now, so I'll have to favorite it for later. Jesus...

Saw the whole episode, it was fantastic.
