I saw a little blurb about it and it seems interesting. Is it something I can just start watching or will I be lost?
You can just start watching it...you won't be lost at all.
I've seen the previews. It sounds really intriguing. We don't get cable so I haven't seen it but I might try to find some episodes online.
I heard that these Amish people left their community quite a few years ago and are basically acting their shock amd surprise at modern amenities.
I think it's neat but a little dramatic. It's interesting learning about different cultures.
