Amish in the City is a tickler of an idea, but the execution is oddly uninspired, an unfortunate waste of the best premise since The Surreal Life. When Miriam's Amish friend drops by for a surprise birthday visit, she's asked if she can identify the Amish in the group beneath their lip gloss and Abercrombie damage. She does so instantly, to everyone's surprise but ours. As the rumspringa goes on, the cast gradually takes up residence in a newly blended world. The show, meanwhile, can't seem to get past the shallow shock of spotting the other.
