I don’t know why, but I am addicted to this show. Some people say it’s fake and you know I’m OK with that…I’m entertained. But I can’t help but think, what if this is real. It’s been interesting for me to learn more about the Amish culture. Some of the things they show are surprising, but it would not surprise me to find out that such a thing exists. Some the Amish beliefs are just, well kinda out there. I do however admire that they are unapologetic for the way they live, and that some (no matter how much I disagree with the way they do it) feel it is a way of life worth protecting. That being said, I think there is a lot of self interest in that “protection”
Flip Man and I agree that this is the real leader of the Amish Mafia. For some reason, I just can’t help but like Esther. Her brother John however, is just not the sharpest tool in the shed.
This guy Merlin, he just scares the you-know-what out of me! This guy is crazy! But you always have to have the crazy guy, right?
I like Jolin. I don’t care that he is Mennonite. I don’t know much about the Mennonites except that they are kinda along the lines of the Amish.
It will be interesting to see what happens in the next episode. If news breaks tomorrow that it’s all fake, I’ll be OK with that and hope the show continues because if nothing else I am entertained. Plus I learn some things. For instance, I didn’t know there were Amish in Ohio and that’s where I grew up!
