Switched at Birth Volume One Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!

Just released to DVD yesterday, December 13th, Switched at Birth Volume One is available for purchase!  I must admit that I had never gotten the chance to catch this show on ABC Family last season.  I saw the previews for it and thought that it looked interesting...  I was excited to receive the DVD to review though!  My sister, Bella and I have been watching Switched at Birth Volume One together!  We have already watched 5 of the episodes and I can't wait to watch the rest!  We plan on being all caught up so that we can begin watching the second season together when it airs on January 3rd on ABC Family!  The premise of this show is that two babies are switched at birth.  One girl grows up with a two parent, wealthy family and a brother, the other grows up with a single, working class mom and loses her hearing at a young age.  The girls find out that they were switched when Bay Kennish does a school project about blood types and finds out that she is not genetically related to her parents.  It's a really great show and my daughter and sister agree!  We love watching them adjust to living their lives after they know that they are actually related to another family.  It is so great to have this DVD to catch up on these episodes!  The best part is that we don't have to watch commercials and don't have to wait a week to see what happens next!  We won't have that luxury when we are watching the second season in real time! 



Program Synopsis:

From the studio that brought you “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” comes a groundbreaking new drama about the upheaval that two teen girls experience when they discover that they were accidentally switched at birth. Starring Lea Thompson (Back To The Future, “Caroline In The City”), Constance Marie (“George Lopez”), Vanessa Marano (“Gilmore Girls”), Katie Leclerc (“Veronica Mars”), D.W. Moffett (“Friday Night Lights”), and Lucas Grabeel (Disney Channel’s “High School Musical”).

Bay Kennish (Marano), a talented graffiti artist with an edgy streak, grew up in a wealthy family with happily married parents and an older brother. Daphne Vasquez (Leclerc), an athletic teenager who lost her hearing at an early age, grew up with a single mother in a working class neighborhood. When the girls’ worlds collide, family bonds are tested, new romances are sparked, and they start to learn that it’s who they are inside that matters, not where they grew up.  Relive the girls’ journey and catch up before the premiere with Switched At Birth: Volume 1.”  Including all 10 episodes plus exclusive collectible iPod skins, this two-disc set is a must-own for every fan!


BUY IT:

You can purchase Switched at Birth Volume One on Amazon for only $20.99!
