Critic Reviews for Huge Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (16)

This show deserves to be big.

Jun 25, 2010 | Full Review…

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

Jun 26, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A series that looks like another ABC Family success story.

Jun 28, 2010 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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.

Jun 27, 2010 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 25, 2010 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Huge, in the end, is one of only a very few examples that I can think of of shows aimed at addressing some kind of marginalized experience that didn't let that "angle" overshadow the humanity of its characters.

Dec 29, 2020 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 28, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

Jun 29, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | 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…

A carefully assembled, emotionally attuned drama.

Jul 5, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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

Jun 28, 2010 | Full Review…

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.
