“Switched at Birth: Volume 1” on DVD + Giveaway
On December 13th, 2011, ABC Family released Switched at Birth: Volume to DVD. I had never seen the show before doing this review and I am so glad I watched it. It is a really good show and I can’t believe I hadn’t heard about it before now. It’s a feel-good, inspirational television show. Switched at Birth: Volume 1 can be purchased online or in stores, retailing for $29.99.
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.
Bay Kennish, a talented graffiti artist with an edgy streak, grew up in a wealthy family with happily married parents and an older brother. Daphne Vasquez, 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!
