I love this show, it is unique and has the usual troubles that teens face in high school and college, relationships, parents, workload etc, but the family's unique situation adds to their turmoil. My favourite bit of the show is how the deaf culture is incorporated, highlighting their struggles and triumphs in a world that is channeled towards hearing people.

Its important that they are series with sign language. Love how they manage the sign and hearing parts so fluently in the episodes.

I love this show. It's so much more than just a family channel show (which most people would associate with something that only 14 year old girls watch). I love the aspect of showing things from a deaf person's perspective and enlightening people on their struggles of living in a hearing person's world. But it's even much more than that - there is love, drama, secrets, and scandal. I'm really emotionally invested in these characters, and will be sad if it has to end anytime soon! Overall it's a great watch!

The 1st time i heard about this show i was so amaze about the ALS, that when i started to watching i try every sign and i felt so cool, but if you dont practice you can forget them easily, but a few words got stock in my head. This show is so kind and nice but so dramatic and crazy at the same time.. I JUST LOVE IT!

I'm certainly not the demographic for this show, yet I watch it. And I suppose that is why I nit pick at some of the subject matter because I really hope no impressionable youths are thinking this imitates any facet of life accurately. My younger sisters are 15 years younger than me and they were actually this stupid.

This series has it's faults. The clichéd, over-dramatised relationship between Bay and Emmett is getting VERY old. The "Glee" or "Eastenders" style of trying EVERY TYPE of problem - be it car crash, death, cheating, rape, long-distance, over-bearing, writer, musical, film making, violence, rudeness, gangs, blackmail - isn't all that interesting. It's mostly pretty obvious. Even so (and I do admit to being a bit on-off with this show) I kinda love it. The premise of two babies being switched at the hospital is cute. I really enjoy learning ASL. I love the silent episode, the episode where they did it all differently, the episode where it never happened. My favourites. It's not gonna win any oscars (it doesn't deserve any) but it does win a special little place in my heart. I'm addicted, even if I prefer it in bulk rather than AVIDLY watching each moment!!!!

For me the reason for watching this show is the realitionship of Bay and Emmett. Emmett is deaf and Bay hearing. It is beautifull how they start their relationship. And deal with Emmett being deaf and Bay hearing.

The really fun part is if you watch a lot of episode's in a short period of time. You start talking more with your hands. Without being aware of this.

The longer it goes for the sillier it gets. It is no longer about girls who were switched at birth, it has turned into a regular teen drama with teen issues.
