    It is 100% fake, a bunch of websites have done exposes already. The Amish are pissed, because it tries to make them out to be thugs straight from "The Sopranos".http://www.inquisitr.com/432890/amish-mafia-reality-show-blasted-as-pure-fiction/ There are a lot of them in Ohio, and they're really not bad people they're just being exploited by this reality tv bullshit.

    Seeing you replied, i clicked on this thread to see if you could come up with some clever, crazy, coded, convoluted, comeback about the Amish Mafia.

    And this is what i get?

    It doesn't have to be real...and it doesn't even have to be good...it's just has to be oddly intriguing enough to
    draw in enough of an audience for a few quarter hours at a time.

    It's odd and quirky enough to draw in viewers...but will it be able to hold a regular audience?...it's not very likely...and it was
    never really designed/produced from the start to do anything like that.
    It's filler with a chance...not a big chance..but yet something of a chance.

    Discovery rolls the dice and already has plans for moving along towards something else....as they always tend to do.

    They should make a show about jooo mafia on Wall Street who are stealing trillions from citizens... not this shit about people who don't even have radios or electricity.

    Some brilliant executive saw the success of Breaking Amish and had to 1-up it. TV execs now are producing scripted reality shows with non-union non-actors are making money hand over fist. They don't have to pay the "talent" much at all and dumb-ass Americans eat it up with a spoon.

    I saw a couple episodes of Moonshiners and it baffled me that viewers never sat back and thought, "Hmmm, if these guys are making illegal moonshine, why are they showing their faces on national TV??" or "How come the IRS hasn't sent revenuers after these people?"

    all these trash tv shows on TLC and beff0 still can't do better than mom caves . i hope the natgeo thing gets put on the back burner.

    what could get beff0 attention though is a show that displays what a haaarible mess of a cunt she is a la camille grammer.
