In addition to rivalries, there are also romances at the camp, including Will's crush on fellow camper Ian (Ari Stidham) and Amber's crush on counselor George (Zander Eckhouse).

Huge is a pro-social series that will likely reassure some young viewers that they are not alone. If it can find a way to do that in a more unique, entertaining manner in future episodes, all the better.

Huge has done something far more ambitious, unfolding a delicate portrait of a secret subculture - an inverted society in which everyone is fat.

A carefully assembled, emotionally attuned drama.

It delivers an easy-to-understand message: be healthy, but ultimately, be happy with who you are.

What the show does portray quite accurately is the various ways in which a young woman's self-image issues can be manifested.

As summer entertainment with a tangy after-taste, Huge was good stuff. I'm all for its plus-size message, and even more for the talent of its lead actors.

If you can tolerate one more word on the beaten-senseless subject of weight loss, then, and you don't mind hearing generic cliches yet again, you could conceivably become a Huge fan before the summer is over.

In the midst of all the crazy yelling, the show is funny and sweet, but, more important, it makes sense. And these days, there's nothing more dramatic than that.

Huge is both heartfelt and surprisingly savvy.

I've waited a long time to see Winnie Holzman, the creator of My So-Called Life and the Tony-nominated writer of Broadway's Wicked, do another show about adolescent girls. Now she has. And happily, it's Huge.

This appealing and emotionally engaging series about life in a weight-loss summer camp comes with high expectations.

A series that looks like another ABC Family success story.

Huge isn't a show for me, but it's effective in what it's trying to do, and I'm glad it exists.

I couldn't be happier if I'd just discovered calorie-free potato chips. I mean, are you kidding? Fat teens on TV - who aren't just there to compete on The Biggest Loser? In case you didn't notice, I love this show!

The show benefits from an exceptional cast - the actors humanize the issue of teen obesity and encourage viewers to really walk in the characters' shoes before passing judgment.

Maybe the difference between Huge and almost every other TV show is that this one doesn't always tell us how to react. That's a gamble. Full credit to Huge for taking it.

Huge gets the details right, but the bigger picture can seem forced, with coincidence and pat resolutions.

Huge imparts lessons while avoiding the tenor of an instructional, and in many ways it feels like a hybrid of two distinct eras of adolescent television, one marked by a heartfelt languor and the other by a media-fluent sarcasm.

The campers look and act like real kids, exchanging awkward teenage banter, sharing poignant stories and - of course - looking for first love.

Blonsky does a nice and almost-too-convincing job with the troubled teen who carries around her weight as though the very world were on her shoulders. Hairspray fans won't see a hint of Tracy Turnblad.

This show deserves to be big.

Media Life

The clever, engaging script and Blonsky's performance - plus the refreshing idea of a teen drama not entirely populated by assembly-line pinups - promise a summer diversion with a little more than usual dramatic meat on its bones.
