I just finished watching the smash hit TV series Switched At Birth and now I really need the best shows like Switched at Birth to help me fill the void. This show, it’s good! If you haven’t seen it, this tv show is about two girls who are switched at the hospital right after being born. What sets this show apart is that one of the two teens is deaf, and sign language is integrated into the show. You also have the drama of finding out you were switched, which is crazy! Switched At Birth is on Netflix, and because I’m an addict, I made sure to try to include shows like Switched At Birth on Netflix. You’re welcome. Check out a few more details about Switched As Birth below, as well as my picks for similar dramas about teens finding their true family, be it biological or foster.

I’ve watched Switched at Birth a few times, and really liked it. I tend to watch more Family Comedies than dramas. My new favs are The Goldbergs, The Detour and Grace and Frankie.

I really like both Finding Carter and Switched at Birth as well. I’m not really sure of another show like that. The Family is about a kid who’s been kidnapped and comes back home 10 years later.

I’ve watched and fell in love with all of them except Life Unexpected. Getting ready to watch it now! My first was The Fosters and it was my first drama. I found it while looking similar shows to Baby Daddy (my first comedy as well) Then I found Finding Carter through The Fosters and Switched at Birth through FC. Now Life Unexpected! Thank you:)
