Switched at Birth

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 8.30pm, Fox8 In this com­edy drama (mostly drama) about teenage girls who dis­cover they were switched at birth, Vanessa Marano stars as Bay, a dark-haired, olive-skinned beauty who has grown up in a house full of ran­gas. When Daphne (co-star Katie Le­clerc) turns up she is like a clone of her red-haired mum. Daphne has the req­ui­site hair colour but is also pro­foundly deaf. Great dif­fer­ences in pe­cu­niary cir­cum­stances are also a chal­lenge as the fam­i­lies awk­wardly blend. In this fifth episode, Bay is dat­ing Ty, a hand­some boy from the poor Puerto Ri­can neigh­bour­hood she might have grown up in had she not been switched. Her mother is furious at first, then soft­ens as she re­alises the dy­namic in play. Gee, Bay isn’t even grounded for ly­ing to her par­ents and stay­ing out with Ty un­til 3am.
