Hmmm, Trio. . .  
It seems that Trio is trying to sneak in some Amish related programming before the debut of UPN's Amish in the City tonight. I sat and watched most of Devil's Playground last night. It was an interesting look at Amish teenagers and the Amish rumspringa tradition, not one that Rachel really cared to watch, but she was so tired that she was asleep shortly after it began. I never would have thought about Amish drug dealers before watching this thing. Odd, to say the least. I also was not aware that there is an Amish community in Sarasota. Also surprising was the statistic at the end that there is a 90% retention rate of kids going back to the Amish faith once they are done with their "running wild." UPN will most likely have tons more Amishploitation.

I've always wanted to see that movie but I haven't seen it around here to rent.

I don't know if I'm going to want to watch that Amish reality show, though I heard it ends up making the city kids look like total morons. Haha. I told my mom about the show and she was very offended by the idea of it. My mother grew up on a farm and was friends with a lot of Amish...she worked on the farm alongside a lot of the Amish workers and knew a few of them rather well.

Yeah, the UPN one looks like it's going to be SOME bad!
