…I just flipped the TV to Discovery/Times channel. And they are airing Bride Kidnapping in Kyrgyzstan. This is a real must see.

Here’s the plot so far: The prospective groom’s family can’t afford the price demanded by the bride’s father. So they decide to kidnap her. But, when they go to her town, she is not around. So they set their sights on next best. Her family is all for it, but she doesn’t want to cooperate. And this is all business-as-usual.

Update: This repeats several times, until noon PDT.

Update: After watching the whole thing, I must repeat with emphasis, this is a must see.
