Quirky and Fun
29 May 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Switch is an inventive and creative show that dares to test the boundaries of society and has fun doing it. The shows strength is the ability to present many questions and issues in reference to the seldom addressed issue of transitioning, and does it in an entertaining, quirky, and fun way. The cast is fantastically expressive, the one-off cut away scenes are hilarious and perfectly timed, and each episode deals with an extremely relevant social scenario. Overall the show is quirky, odd, enjoyable, and overall just straight up fun to watch!
