Editorial Reviews

Bay Kennish grew up in a wealthy family with her happily married parents and older brother. Daphne Vasquez lost her hearing as a child, and grew up with a single mother in a working class neighborhood. Life as they know it is turned upside down when Bay's school project about blood types reveals she is not genetically related to her parents, and a series of tests confirms she and Daphne were accidentally switched at birth. Together with their families, Bay and Daphne struggle with their own identities and prejudices against one another, all while facing everyday teenage girl drama dating, friendships, and family.

Featuring acclaimed actors Lea Thompson, Constance Marie, Marlee Matlin, and D.W. Moffett, and rising stars Katie Leclerc, Vanessa Marano, Lucas Grabeel, and Sean Berdy, Switched At Birth is a superbly acted and heartfelt series that the entire family will enjoy!

My wife and I are both deaf. We personally thought, "Switched at Birth", was an excellent show! My wife and I agreed that some of parts reminded us of our experiences we went through with our hearing families. I felt this show would be a great example to help the hearing people understand better about deaf culture. Unfortunately, it'd shown on cable channel only instead of regular ABC channel. I am considering buying this DVDs for some of our families who need to learn about us. I hope it will give them a wake up call.

my mother nagged and nagged and nagged at me to watch switched at birth. i am not a tv watcher. im a book person, i movie person but tv, i just dont get around to it. One weekend im sitting on her couch and she asks, since im not doing anything would i like to watch switched at birth (which she still had on the dvr). Within the first couple of minuets i was glued in and by the end of the first episode i was at the point where i could watch it for hours and hours and hours. it was just that great. real people, real situations, great characters. its not just about 2 girls being switched at birth but thats just a part of the story. its about a wealthy mother (played by the wonderful leah thompson who you may remember from "some kind of wonderful" from the 80s) who never met her birth child having to learn to step up to the plate with her long lost deaf child "daphne" and get to know her. its about "bay" whos trying to find someone who she can connect with in her own family until she discovers (hahaha puerto rican kids just dont usually come from red headed white families, sorry, hadda throw that in), its about a mother "regina" (she also played the mom in george lopez) a hair dresser from the other side of the tracks, who is just trying to get by the best way she can and being a great mother. its about a teenage brother getting to know a sister he never knew and battleing his own demons. and a father who is just awesome. last but not least theres me and my moms pretty much mutual fav, the adorable red head whos had daphnes back through it all, her best friend "emmette". he really does light up the screen. you want somethin to happen good for this guy so much.
the show is having a short summer season. i want it back. i want it be a regular show with like 18-22 episodes. people you gotta tune in. it needs viewers to survive and ive yet to meet anyone outside my family thats seen it. abc family, monday night! im definatly buying this dvd.

Why are there only 10 episodes on this season, when they made 30 episodes of the show? Why are not all 30 episodes available on the dvd?

I love this show but I was very disappointed when I opened it and only found 2 discs containing 10 out of 30 episodes!! The worst thing is that I had to remove the plastic to find out it's not the complete first season so now I can't return it! I guess Volume One is NOT Season one. I was really looking forward to sharing this with my family and friends...now I can't because I don't have the entire season. Bummer.

First of all, my complaint: This DVD is only for the first half of season one. I recommend that people stop buying these partial-season DVDs so that the producers get the message and stop ripping people off. As for the program, I really like it that actors who play the deaf characters are really deaf (or hearing impaired) and I enjoy watching the signing (even though I don't know ASL). It's a beautiful language. The only major complaint I have with the story is that Bay, who is raised in a very Wasp environment, is a "graffiti-artist" which is "explained" when she finds out that she's half Puerto Rican. Talk about stereotyping! I also think that Katie LeClerc (Daphne) doesn't really look like a sixteen year-old high school girl. Perhaps that's because she's really 25. But she does a terrific job so I can overlook the age discrepancy. In general the show is great(if a bit too PC) and I'd recommend it to anyone. Just wait for the full season DVD.

This is my favorite tv show! It is soo good! It's not hard to follow even though a lot of it is done in ASL. Which is one of the reason's that I love it soo much. The lead actress, Katie Leclerc, is not deaf for real but she does have Meniere's Disease. So she is hard of hearing, and sometimes fully deaf. It's a disease that affects the inner ear. making some people deaf or just causes them serious pain. I know a lot about this disease because my father has it. He is 75% deaf. So it's hard to have a normal talk with him. He can't hear. He just recently got Meniere's. So I have a lot of respect for Katie. it has to be hard to work such long hours with the bad head aches and just terrible pain that this disease can cause. I didn't know a lot about ASL before watching this show. It has opened up a lot of things for me. I am now studying books and trying to learn whatever I can about ASL. It's just such a beautiful and amazing language I'm actually sad that I didn't know about it before now. I am trying to learn it so I can help teach my dad before he goes 100% deaf. Plus I could end up getting Meniere's. So I want to be prepared. I hope that other people will give this show a chance. It isn't like other shows, it's better.
