Cast & Crew
The campers look and act like real kids, exchanging awkward teenage banter, sharing poignant stories and - of course - looking for first love.
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.
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.
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 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.
This appealing and emotionally engaging series about life in a weight-loss summer camp comes with high expectations.
