Tv Season Info

This teen drama set at a weight-loss camp focuses on the rivalry between two campers: Will (Nikki Blonskey), a sarcastic girl who doesn't agree with the message behind weight-loss camps; and Amber (Hayley Hasselhoff), a girl who isn't as overweight as the other campers, but who is determined to shed some pounds. 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).

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

A series that looks like another ABC Family success story.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Jun 28, 2010 | Full Review…

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.

Mar 29, 2012 | Full Review…

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