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.

This a an original show and I truly enjoy it. Sometimes. However, there are times when it gets boring and it doesn't evolved. How many is Bay going to juggled between the same boys? Make up your mind girl. And Daphne... when is she going to own up to her mistakes? Her little pity/i'm deaf complex is getting very annoying. This is why I'm giving it a 2 1/2.

Switched at Birth is like a really great soap opera with characters that are bound to make everyone think a little bit about themselves--about what family and friends are, about how, why and what motivates us to get a particular job or to make art, about our errors and the millions of ways we might just--like these characters do--keep finding our ways back to what matters the most to each of us. With an extra unexpected aspect of making us also aware of our senses--not just of hearing, but of each of our senses and how our relationships to each other are linked through our senses. Fun, sad, and also motivating--Switched at Birth surprised me, who had only expected a little teeny bopper distraction. It is a show with a wider scope than that, and which is well scripted, engaged politically and socially in reflecting about the kinds of people we are and also those we could be when we find the best versions of ourselves.
