  • good acting but terrible scripts

    8.5
    The show started out well and the characters fit the script well. However, It has changed into a modern soap opera using violence, drugs, and betrayal to add drama where it is not needed. All the actors are able to show both love and understanding very well. The most recent show, Aug 11, Daphne steals drugs and then flushes them. It is just as contrived as her cocaine use and vandalism in earlier episodes. It shows a recklessness and disregard for others that does not fit her earlier character. Today's episode could have focused on the dress code problem and the fun of the outside prom. This program's writers have gone beyond a bridge too far. They have made innocent likeable high school students take on every problem of young adults pretty much all at the same time. The tension the writers are artificially creating is so unbelievable it makes me flinch and think, "Too bad. It started out as such a goodmoreless

  • I like it

    9.5
    I think it brings the theme of teen development in the right manner, it mentions sex in a manner that is constructive and lets actual teens learn from the characters mistakes, it is very well written and catches my attention, it is entertaining without the common exaggeration we see in other series.

    When this series started I was quickly hooked. I, like many, was intrigued by the whole sign language take. But as the season wore on and into the second season they brought in teen sexuality with seemingly no consequence now I was concerned. Like we don't have enough STD's in the teen and young adult population in this country, not to mention babies being born out of wedlock where the Dad's aren't sticking around? Then they made abstinence education look stupid when abstinence is truly the only way to prevent STD's and pregnancy. The only "christian" on the program was made fun of for her beliefs and then finally compromises on those beliefs in the end.

    Since I don't have kids at home anymore I kept on watching, then when they brought in the homosexual couple and portrayed them as being the "better" choice of a parent then their own Dad coupled with the new "friend" from the dance studio I decided it was time to turn off my auto record button and stop watching. Just when I thought things can't get much worse the next show comes on called The Foster's and the first scene is of the "mother's" in bed after their "honeymoon" kissing, I turned that off right away. Yikes, I am only 56 but this is to much for me and it makes me sad that our children are being raised thinking that these "morals" are normal. I have to ask the question, since Homosexuality is such a small percentage of our population in America why is it so prevalent in almost every program that comes out of Hollywood? It's back to Hallmark and a different "Family" channel for me and hopefully others as well.moreless

    Switched at Birth Season 3 Finale Review: Nice Twist, But It's Not Enough to Fix the Show's Recent Missteps

    Despite a brilliant cliffhanger in "And Life Begins Right Away," Daphne’s 180-degree turn in Season 3 makes it difficult to muster up excitement for what’s to come.

    • Was Regina THAT wrong?
      I can totally see why everybody would be mad at her for keeping that big secret about knowing but I kinda see where she was coming...

    • Regina
      WHAT is with Regina's hand? It's obvious it has to do with the actress, not the character. What happened, anyone know?
