    Anyone watching?


    24 ordinary Brits leave behind their jobs and their homes for an extraordinary summer, cut off from the modern world, on a remote farmstead in Devon. Together, they live by the principles of the Amish, which rejects modern values and technology.

    I can see the appeal at least for a summer!

    Very interesting first show I thought.

    F#ck me that Penny one would wreck anyone's head.

    A decade or so ago, I went to Uganda for 4 weeks to lend a hand with some bits and pieces.

    No phones, no hot water, no television or radio, basic food and water. It was honestly lovely to disconnect from all the noise and interference of our daily lives.

    I can honestly see the appeal. They all seem to be embracing it bar the aforementioned Penny...she feels like a producer plant tbh...
