|Would this fly if it were your show?

Did anyone ever watch this show? I can't remember the name, but they build an 18th century village on this island, and took people back so they could try living as people did back then. And people complained because they were having to live as people did back then!|
1) Villagers complained because they had to be in church every day, all day every Sunday. They said they didn't believe in God, so they shouldn't be made to do it. So producers said they didn't have to. Hello! In the 1700s, you went to church, even if you didn't believe in God. Even if you didn't feel like it. If you didn't go to church, you went to jail. If the villagers didn't want to sit in church, they should have been kicked off the show.
2) The women complained because they weren't allowed to be involved in decision making in the village. Do I have to remind you what year you're trying to live in? Women cooked, cleaned, and raised the children. That's how it was.
I just don't understand why people decided they wanted to be part of the show, then refused to actually try to live in the past, which is the entire premise of the project.
I'd tell them, "If you don't cooperate, you're going back to the mainland and the 21st century. Why did you volunteer if you didn't want to do it?"
