"Amish Mafia" (Discovery)
What it is: This show is a "first-ever look" at the men who protect and maintain the peace within the Amish community of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Don't assume this series is essentially cuddly outtakes from "Witness" or a wacky "Saturday Night Live" sketch. There are power struggles, demonic possession rumors, jail stints and guns.
What's weird about it: Amish MAFIA, people! Even the Amish claim these organizations don't exist.
What's awesome about it: "Amish Mafia" upends our preconceived notions about the Amish community and brings us into a world most of us have never even heard of. Plus, the beards are fantastic.
