Is this show so staged or what?
There are Amish folks that are clearly not Amish!!
I have had little exposure to the Amish around here and know that this isn't what they're like.

Every Amish community is different from eash other. Some are very strict, and don't allow contact with out siders at all. While other Amish are very open to the Enlish people as they call us. I guess it all depends on where they are filming the show.
I know from meeting Amish all over the country, it is like night and day as to what you can do without offending them.

i guess all the strict ones come up here then!! Why do they choose to live in the 1800's instead of any other century?

to a useful person, besides the Amish strict religion and refusal of electricity there are economic reasons to live that way, they grow a lot of their own food, they cut their own firewood, make their own cloths, grow hay to feul their horses that take the place of tractors and cars. they have almost no bills and make money selling their surplus. they do everything themselves. and they do not live in the 1800s, the comunity carefully assesses new technology and decides how it fits in their society.

I have not seen the show, but a lot of these types of show are about interpersonal drama and conflict and mocking uncommon groups. if it was a realistic review of the Amish it would be a booring documentary that very few people would watch, its all about ratings.

its all fake, just ask any Amish if the have a mafia, really do you think people who can forgive the person that shot up an amish school and killed thier children would need any sort of mofia? its the cable looking for ratings, nothing more
