Bay Kennish grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and a brother, while Daphne Vasquez, who lost her hearing as a child due to a case of meningitis, grew up with a single mother in a poor neighborhood. Things come to a dramatic head when both families meet and struggle to learn how to live together for the sake of the girls. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Daphne is supposed to be a deaf character, but as she is played by a hearing actress, she often looks towards the source of noise/people talking, but a deaf person shouldn't be able to hear. See more »

Goofs

This series took place in Kansas City, but took an approach that is actually common to TV shows trying to limit their clothing and scenery budgets, which is to pretend that winters (especially fierce Midwestern winters) don't exist. Characters wear short sleeves year round. See more »

A surprisingly good show
11 February 2012 | by Paranoia_RockNRollerSee all my reviews

I had a bias the Switched would be like the other ABCfam TV shows... dull and boring with reeeeaaally bad acting and unrealistic plot lines.

I ignored the first season and over the winter break I found myself with nothing to do. I saw an ad and remembered the series. I looked it up and watched ll of the episodes online.

It is a drama, but a really good one. Not overly dramatic. And the acting is refreshingly good.

Daphne is a quintessential good girl and Bay plays a rebel. And of course Daphne being deaf is a very interesting plot part. As a matter of fact I have started learning sign language because of it.

So I would recommend this series.
