Glad to be able to buy it.

This series was on television some time ago, and we enjoyed it then. It is pretty well done. A little over the top in teenage angst at times, but its about teenagers, so, well, you know... Anyway, I liked seeing the deaf community treated with a lot more respect and humanity than is usual in mainstream drama.

I love the show but I am dissapointed that this did not cover the whole season. And that I can't find the other seasons on DVD or Blu-Ray. The show is very well scripted & acted.

Great TV
Verified purchase
The first season is enough for an ASL class to see the parallels yet differences of deaf culture and hearing culture. It maintains a compelling story line and also has deaf actors which is something you don't encounter that often in popular culture. This season was a great buy and I recommend purchasing for your ASL class if interested.

DVD is tape quality bitrate 2.5Mbps Trash Quality(A good dvd should be 5-8Mbps)
Verified purchase
LOVE the show, hate the garbage dvd quality.

I'm glad that that ONLY the first 10 of 30 episodes(Season1) is out on dvd.
If there had been a complete box set of all of them I would have bought it...
AND been really, really ticked off!

Extra episodes for season 1 a sweet surprise
Verified purchase
I have recently discovered "Switched at Birth" and fallen in love. I'm between the ages of the parent characters and the grandmother on the show, so this is not just a show for teens or 'tweens, though I think would be great for either. The material about deaf culture gives the program wonderful richness and the acting and dialogue are really good--better than you'd expect for a show on ABC Family. The main characters/actors are very appealing and the show draws one in quickly. It's reminiscent of another of my favorites, "The Gilmore Girls," without the kitch-y comic bits. Season 1 was created in two segments, so this fall of 2012, episodes airing are still considered part of season 1.

Review of "Switched at Birth"
Verified purchase
The program, called "Switched at Birth" does a fantastic job of explaining the differences between hearing and Deaf cultures, as well as the differences between the cultures of the Rich and the more humble life styles. I was very impressed. The acting is superb. Bay does a nice job playing the rebellious heart-broken teenager who just found out her life, her mom, and dad, are not her real parents, and that her life as she knows it is not the true biz life she thought. I love Daphne's description at the end when her boyfriend asked who is that girl, meaning "Bay". Daphne, who thoughout the movie, portrays a very happy teenager who accepts life at it comes, thought about it for a moment--Bay is not her sister, but how does she explain who Bay is? She finally stated, "she? that girl? She is me from a previous life. We switched." It was beautiful. I highly recommend this show to hearing and Deaf--I have to applaud ABC for putting out a family friendly show that is heart-wrenching at times, funny at times, and over all an excellent depiction of true life struggles.

Excellent series-BUT only partial episodes!
Verified purchase
This is a GREAT series! However you can only get the 1st 10 episodes. There is no other means to get the rest of the series except to stream. Neither of my children have internet access due to their locations which means they can't even finish watching the second half of the first season. It seems since this is a very popular series the continuing episodes should be available in another format besides streaming!
