High concept, and yet it works, thanks to solid acting.
Despite all the implausibilities and irritations, Switched manages to make a positive impression, thanks to some sturdy writing and solid performances that adequately sell the premise.
If the situation of Switched at Birth often seems surreal and at times contrived (seriously, no one is going to even call a lawyer? Or a therapist? Or the hospital?), the performances keep the story grounded as yet another alternative American family blooms under the California sun.
ABC Family has another bright and bouncy addition to the family--one that with proper care and feeding looks born to run for a good long time.
