    Coming one week after the abstinence club hypocrites storyline I’m getting pretty disgusted. I noticed three different head coverings, two different bonnets, a couple of different styles of dress. Not to mention the hairstyles which you addressed. If the costume designer spent even one day researching, it surely didn’t show. And why did the Amish teen have to be the killer, while the “bad boy” was innocent (of the murder, anyway)?

    Sounds to me like good reason to ditch the TV. Lets hope shows like this are shortlived. “Sin” used to be something we were ashamed of. Now it is something that is glorified and worshipped.

    Well, the Chicago/Green Bay game was pretty close last night – so I only flipped over to ‘Cold Case during some commercials. I saw enough of the show to realize it was way off the mark from the syles of dress to the pathetic portrayal of the Amish as primitive and cold.

    I was pretty upset about this. I did watch it just to see if I was being over sensitive or not. well, I wasn’t! They totally, totally had it all wrong. The way they made the amish look really was upsetting. They made it look like they are cold and backwards, almost like they are some kind of evil cult! Not to mention the manner of dress as someone else mentioned. I agree to with missymess comment about the bad boy! Yes, sin is not such a bad thing anymore. It seems bad is only bad if you get caught and then it really isn’t THAT bad! What happened to being moral, putting others before yourself and not wanting to do wrong. Now today everyone is wanting to see what they can get away with and they are out for self. okay, okay I will get off my soapbox!

    Styles of Amish women's head coverings

    Good points all…I don’t think anyone was too excited about what we saw…and missymess that is interesting about the coverings, as I glanced up from what I was doing, they all just seemed a bit dumpy and baggy, not like the heart-shaped coverings that they wear in Lancaster.

    Anyone have any guesses on how they are going to ‘do the Amish’ next? Maybe a reality show on an Amish farm? I’m sure someone has thought of that one already.
