Great Concept
8 June 2011 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

When first hearing the title of this show without knowing anything about it I thought, "I don't think so." Watched it on Hulu and really liked it. It's a great way to bring the deaf culture to TV. It was nice to see subtitles in stead of having some actor repeat everything a deaf person signs. Daphne Leclerc (Katie) and Vanessa Marano (Bay) are excellently cast. They carry it well.Constance Marie signs beautifully as if she always signed. The deaf kid on the motorcycle is very cool. Just a regular teen. The other story lines are good. Who broke Regina's car window? Tagging,art references. I just hope by taking Katie out of the deaf school it doesn't go all talk, talk, talk, with all lip reading. It doesn't look like there are any other deaf kids at the new school. It could have short scenes with only deaf in it with all subtitles. Of course not too much. There seems a need for more deaf actors.Or it will lose it's flavor which is what makes it unique. All in all it's a really good show and I know many people who are interested in it. I will definitely continue to watch.
