    Anecdotal, but I used to have family members that lived down the road from an Amish family. Said Amish family would often show up to watch TV.

    I was referring to Nog's death and S8.

    I suppose they are not allowed to have elecricity in their houses. I know of Amish who build sheds - that are not their houses - where it's seemingly totally fine to have huge TVs

    Tora Ziyal was a far more important role than Icheb and she's been played by three actresses.

    I have read about (and take this with a side of salt) that it depends on if it benefits the community.

    Too bad they can't make TVs as easily as they make phones (by linking two cans with a string :D).

    To be fair, Kristen Alley made money off it as she was the one who pitched and headined the reality show: Fat Actress.

    People are not 'up in arms about it.' Some people have just said that they would have preferred the original actor like they did with Hugh. And even though the role was small (much smaller than I hoped and expected) I think it would have worked better with Brophy. There really was no time at all to establish this new Maddox, the audience had zero connection to him, so using the familiar actor would have at least been able to leverage that for those of us who count 'the Measure of a Man' among their favourite episodes. I understand that for the people who do not even remember the original Maddox it doesn't matter one bit. Overall, I was bit disappointed with whole Maddox thing, I somehow assumed that there would have been something more substantial given the buildup. And like some other posters have pointed out, even though the characters learned something, the audience didn't; we have known where Soji is for a while. So overall tad underwhelming.

    I believe the Amish are allowed to use technology as long as they don't own it. I've seen Amish people use cell phones & power tools.

    On SNL she made sketches about her fatness. I still have the video.

    So a streaming service like Pureflix is fine as long as they don't pay for it. gotcha.
    Sounds like a sound business model from Pureflix' side
