    I was rather aghast at the destruction technique of that kitchen! Sledge hammers? Come on! I’d have fired them on the spot. Those counters could have been taken out intact and given to someone, or donated to some worthy organization. As for the show….can’t really comment; didn’t see enough of it, but seems pretty weak. Don’t have to have the Amish travel around the country to get a view of their craftmanship. Try getting permission to video a work in progress or a workshop. Seems much more realistic.

    I am dubious as to whether the two people involved are indeed proper Amish. Albert Miller – the older man – does appear to be genuine but the second man – Robert Schlabach – just appears too knowledgeable of the world and far too relaxed around modern technology etc to be genuine. With a quick google search it appears that he owns WB Services, a large construction firm. So it may be that he was born in the Amish community – but left when he was young. It is quite common for many Amish shows to use such people and promote them as Amish.

      Good observations, Marvin!
