    I don't have cable. I'd have to catch in the 1-2 hours a week I'm at my mom's. I just have network TV.

    If your mom has a DVR she could record them for you to watch when you visit.

    At first, I thought that Leah was just hung up on something and needed to let it go, but, after watching the first episode, I get it. I think she should speak out and report what she has discovered.

    I grew up with a lot of concerns with the church that my parents were members (me too) and over the years, I see what it has done to people. I'm fortunate that it didn't screw me up. (There are actually several sites where kids who grew up fundie, like I did gather and share. We call it religious abuse.) I see nothing wrong with sharing your experiences. It's real and it effects you. You have that right.

    I knew Scientology was bad and abusive to their members and ex-members, but this just solidifies that. I completely believe Leah and those that are speaking out in this series. I hope Leah helps bring down the organization. I applaud her for speaking out. Also, I can't get over how non diverse they are. They show pictures of the members and high up officials and it's a sea of white people basically. Not that that's their focus (I don't know) but it just seems so off and weird and oily/skeevy to me. Are there scientologists of other races? they show them in print ads but I've never seen one when there is any scientologist expose shows.

    I think remember reading or hearing that initially they were all white (something with LRH being racist or something) but eventually they started to admit African Americans, just look how they are courting Will Smith.

    Isaac Hayes was a scientologist. He quit South Park as the voice of Chef over a Scientology episode

    True, though his family is saying that wasn't the reason he left SP.

    I read Leah's book and it was good...not the best written book but an easy quick read. Then I read the book by Jenna Miscaivage who is the niece of the leader of Scientology. That one was a real eye opener as well. This "religion" is insane. The fact that they are able to operate tax exempt should be a crime.

    I believe one of Tom Cruise's children is mixed race, although I don't know what that mix is.
