The reality series "Breaking Amish" provides a unique look into the lives of young men and women who break free from their Amish or Mennonite traditions to pursue dreams of an "English" life in New York City and Brooklyn, N.Y. They get to wear jeans, use electricity, and spend time in places that serve alcohol -- all first-time experiences for them -- but taking advantage of Western luxuries has its disadvantages. The cast members likely will be abandoned by their families if they commit to living full-time on the outside, and even if they return to their previous lifestyles, they risk being shunned by their community altogether. The choice is theirs, and they know it comes with potential lifelong consequences.

It stands to reason that TLC wants to "return to Amish." The network got considerable traction by documenting Amish and Mennonite lifestyles and how they contrast with others today, beginning in 2012 with "Breaking Amish," its highest-rated freshman series. The profiled young men and women experienced unfamiliar cities, including New York, and now they have returned to their roots. The spinoff "Return to Amish" features some of those people -- Abe, Jeremiah, Rebecca and Sabrina -- back in Pennsylvania, where they become reacquainted with traditions while having life-changing experiences like marriage and pregnancy. Cameras also follow Kate, who chose to remain in New York to focus on a budding modeling career.

In the Amish settlement in Lancaster County, Pa., keeping the peace and carrying out justice is the responsibility of Lebanon Levi. He doesn't hold the title of police chief, yet he holds all the power of one, if not more. Levi exists above the law and occupies the role of police, judge and jury in a community that, untrusting of traditional law enforcement authorities, relies on a group of men for protection and justice. "Amish Mafia" depicts the work carried out by Levi and three of his assistants, namely keeping outside forces from infiltrating the Amish community, while keeping the principles and morality within the community in check. The Amish church, according to Discovery, denies the existence of this unique "police" force, so the network says some identifying information in the series has been changed, and some scenes are re-enacted.
Life-changing decisions are not easy, especially when consequences mean one's disassociation from one's culture. The 10-episode documentary "Amish: Out of Order" follows those who have chosen to leave their familiar life for more freedom and opportunity -- despite the decision to live among "the English" preventing them from further contact with the community. The series spotlights Mose Gingerich and his efforts to help former followers of the faith. At 22, Gingerich himself left and moved to Columbia, Mo., where his new life centers on welcoming and guiding others who share his experience.

Long-distance relationships have challenges that are sometimes difficult to overcome but consider if the distance traveled was halfway around the world and a couple had just 90 days to decide whether the courtship should conclude with marriage. That's the situation facing the men and women profiled in this series, which shares the complexities of international romances. Using a visa that allows foreign fiancees of American citizens to travel to the U.S., the men and women experience life in the States with their prospective mates for the first time. Culture and language barriers must be overcome -- not to mention the stigma of being thought of as mail-order spouses -- but here's the elephant in the room: The couples must marry before the visas expire in 90 days, or else the visitors have to immediately return to their countries. With the clock ticking, these couples discover if their "happily ever after" is meant to be.

When it comes to dating on the island of Kodiak, Alaska, residents there often say, "The odds are good, but the goods can be a little odd." So six native Alaskan women -- fed up with scruffy men who are preoccupied with hunting and fishing -- cast their love line about 5,000 miles away in the sun-splashed and romance-filled city of Miami. This six-episode series documents how the women trade their rugged boots for high heels and fancy dates with firefighters, football players, personal trainers and cops. The cast includes Tina, who knows what she wants and how to get it; Jenny, who looks forward to ditching long socks and long johns for dresses and makeup; single mom Heather; Sabina, a free spirit who wants to be swept off her feet; quintessential Alaskan tomboy Lacy; and 22-year-old Haley, the youngest on the trip.
