Did anybody else watch this "Reckoning" episode last night? A laughable attempt by the Discovery Channel to convince us this show is for real.

The show may be real, but it's still ridiculous.

Gotta go.....time for milking.

There may be some Amish that are not as we often think....people are people...but there is NO WAY this show is anywhere near real.

I saw part of this show once and am sorry I wasted 10 minutes of my life on it. Every one of these reality shows is contrived and fake — they build up drama and conflict that is not there. I had hoped they were a fad that would have been gone by now but sadly, there are more around now than ever. Its yet another reason to not have cable TV.

I only watch the last two or three minutes of this waiting for “Moonshiners” to come on. At least I know that show is fake. Entertaining but fake.

I’m missing out on so much that matters to conservatives in America these days since I cancelled cable TV. No satellite receiver either; just O-T-A.

Thanks for keeping your fellow FReepers up-to-date.

I’ve blocked the Discovery channel, MTV, VH1, and dozens of other worthless channels that are nothing but “reality TV”. Soon the History Channel will be among them. They don’t tell history anymore, they have stupid fake shows like Pawn Stars, American Pickers, and other worthless reality crap.

TV is a wasteland.

Its actually one of the most entertaining “reality” shows I’ve seen in a while. They actually hit on something pretty good. Maybe next season they can crank it up a notch with Lebanon Levi getting shot in an Amish Drive By.

It’s not fake? LOLOLOLOL!!

Sure, I’m going be be in a mafia, violate laws and have it on national TV. Law enforcement will never be able to figure out who I am!

Why, that’s just like being a moonshiner...

I watched this show because it was hilarious. It was either totally fake, or the Amish have no rules or no way to enforce them. The laundry list of crimes those clowns comitted would have caught the attention of any cop in the world.

I always wonder why the self-righteous “I don’t watch TV” crowd always feels compelled to show up on these threads and brag that they haven’t seen the show in question. If you haven’t seen it, why would you think anybody would want to hear what you think?

I saw a commercial for this over Christmas. I think the fact they don’t have beards is a givaway. Also there was a show about rednecks building an illegal still. I am supposed to believe that the network found these rednecks and paid them to do something illegal, and they film it for everyone to see?

I like the show, it's like a mini-soap drama.
The guy Merlin (sp?) cracks me up.
It makes me laugh when one of the others say he's been hit with the crazy stick one too many times.

Coming from a person who believes 100% in Ghost Adventures and The Dead Files I can say that show is as fake as a Hillary Clinton accent in a black church.

The really funny thing about this article is that its author is actually mixing it up with posters in the comments section.
