My Mother's family is from southeast PA. My Mother lives in Lancaster, PA. My uncle was a minister in several churches in southeast PA. I have spent a lot of time in southeast PA. There are a lot of Amish living in southeast PA. As a result, I know a thing or two about the Amish.
The Amish are not the cute, cuddly folk that tourists think they are, but there is no Amish Mafia. This television show is nothing but a twisted fantasy. Please don't watch it.
Normally I wouldn't comment on a TV show, but this one really ticked me off. The Amish aren't perfect, and neither are the rest of us. But they just want to be left alone to live their plain lives, and we should honor that wish.
A quick note to TV people everywhere. Please go back to the Jersey Shore and find some other weirdos to put on your horrible shows. Leave the Amish be.

By the way, if you are visiting Amish country, please don't take pictures of them. It's just rude.
