I gave this four stars for the excellent, detailed insight into the mind-set of those born into the FLDS. I do wish TLC would quit advertising these shows as if they were filmed real-time as the events occurred. I thought some of the confrontation scenes seemed staged and researched this series about half-way through. Those scenes WERE staged. This whole series is a reenactment. That is fine, but I wish TLC would just state that. I would still watch and I wouldn't feel like they were lying to me. Still, it's a good series if you are interested in the subject. One thing I found very strange was the way they kept showing the girls in their prairie dresses and weird hair styles in the out-take narratives even after they had changed to "Gentile" clothing and hair styles. This added further to the staged appearance. I watched "Breaking Amish" after this and they did the exact same thing. Weird!

This show absolutely has me anticipating the next episode each time I finish one. I got sucked in right away. Does that mean it's perfectly executed, of course not. But I'm really fascinated by what goes on in religious cults, so this is right up my alley.

Four girls have decided to escape The Crick, an area in Arizona/Utah that is completely controlled by the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints. If you've heard of the FLDS, you know they are a religious cult whose prophet, Warren Jeffs, is now in prison for sexual crimes against minors. Many books have been written detailing some of the abuses perpetrated in this church and how various women have escaped its clutches and brought some of the leaders to justice (The Witness Wore Red by Rebecca Musser, Stolen Innocence by Elissa Wall, and Escape by Carolyn Jessop are a few interesting titles). One of these authors (Jessop) plays a key role in the show.

The girls who escape are fascinating. There are a couple of rebels who really want to break free, even to the point of acting out in unhelpful ways. Then there are a couple girls who seem to feel superior to the others-- they were part of the "United Order" (only the most worthy in the religion are allowed to join) and are extremely brainwashed. It is great to see the contrast and really mind-boggling to see the references to how they lived before-- ridiculously old-fashioned dresses, magic underwear, bulletproof hair and all.

The guys who helped them escape have their own dramas going on. They are learning how to date girls, trying to locate relatives who have disappeared into the church's powerful grip, and trying to find a balance between helping the females adjust and giving them their space.

I liked this 1st Season of Breaking the Faith. After watching the 1st episode, I was hooked! I'm not sure if it got renewed, but I'd like to see what ends up happening with the people in the show. I've heard some criticism about it being like Breaking Amish or being fake. I actually liked it better, and viewers have to realize that this isn't a documentary, it's reality TV. So, I'm sure there is some staging, and some reinactment going on. However, I'm sure there is some truth to the general premise of the show which is about people leaving the FLDS. The challenges, fears, and emotions I'm sure are very real. I found it interesting to get a glimse into that (horrible) lifestyle and the trauma these kids have gone through and continue to go through. I hope they are able to adapt outside the FLDS and find happiness.

I never write reviews but this one was worthy. Having grown up in a radical extreme right wing fundamentalist cult I related to every character. I wish I had found the strength and had the options these kids had of a safe house early in my life. Because the cult I was raised in didn't raise as many red flags as FLDS has & unfortunately managed to remain under the radar of public awareness.

It has taken me decades of my adult life to free my mind of the brainwashing I endured and to this day still I struggle at times. Although the word shunning was never used we all knew it existed. There was no room for even minor differences of opinion regarding the sick belief system, dress codes etc. You had few choices, you either checked your brain at the door and became a trained parrot or you were shunned. Shunning meant you were eternally damned to hell.

Your damnation could be a result of something as minor as wearing pants, makeup or a shirt with a neckline lower than three fingers below the collar bone (IOW rebellion). I graduated with no education in computer, math, sciences or driver education. The history I was taught had little to do with reality and was completely rewritten according to align with the cults worlds view. I had none of the skills needed to survive in the world and was shunned as well, but survive I did. The cult not only survives but flourishes to this day in spite of hints of scandals concerning their failure to deal with suspected child molesters in positions of authority.

Having said all that kudos to these kids and so glad these things are going public as FLDS is not the only religious cult destroying lives with their insidious version of life, salvation and God's love. Hopefully it will inspire others if they find themselves in the same situation to find the strength to leave and know building a new life is possible.
