The people in this show actually come off as having been rehearsed, but not very well. It leaves me wondering if it is scripted, using people who are certainly not actors. Leaves me very confused as to the fact that this group seems like it is just a normal group of folks, playing at being a "religious" group. They seem so fake, like bad actors.
Also, I was left questioning why "Bertha" was "shunned" due to her son going to school and playing sports (REALLY??), yet she and her friend were "unshunned" as soon as their sons decided to quit school No meeting fromt he elders?? No having to go before the elders and have them reverse their "shunning"? hmmmm And then, on episode Number 5, Bertha's son is back in school, playing basketball again, and there is no discussion or worry about Bertha being shunned again? Rings so untrue. Doesnt make sense, seems very, very fake. :(
