Please keep it. I never miss an episode and have been a fan since day one. I love that it is so different and relatable. I love how the show is in it’s own catagory and has a wide range of dynamic real life issues. It deserves to have many many seasons in the future so we can see how the characters and story line evolve. Switched at Birth has just started it’s journey in educating the veiwers so it can make an impact world wide.

Our family loves this show. It’s one of a very few that we watch together so we are hoping that it will be allowed to continue. Not only has it been tremendous to see the heraing impact on the deaf community but there has been many messages and lessons on the arts, community service, legal issues, law enforcement, teens, adults, relationships in general, economic differences and now politics. I certainly hope the writers can continue to capture first time viewers as well as keep the loyal fans watching!

I love this show. I think it is interesting to watch the way that the switch has affected each of them and how they use the differences to their advantage.

It’s a good show, but I also see it starting to go the way many of the ABC Family shows go. They start out as solid shows that the whole family can watch. Slowly they get a little more melodramatic, then they turn into teen-only soap operas. Wildfire was a great example of this. The first season was great and aimed at a wider target audience. The second season slowly started ditching the elements that made it more interesting to a wider audience, and by the end of that season, it was a teen soap.
