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!!!!
