breaking amish is breaking bad!

while as an adult show it has alot of value and entertainment it sends a very negative message. these kids have ran away from there problems instead of facing them, they get fully entrapped in the American capitalist culture and enjoy blowing their money irresponsibily, drinking,fighting, having secret sex, eating junk food, getting tattoos in spur of the moment decesions. its extremley sexest and features negative representation of alcohol abuse, eating disorders, and rash marital decesions veiw at your own descrestion and dont let your kids watch this show
