    Huge, a new series about overweight teens at a weight-loss camp, starts tonight, and I couldn't be happier if I'd just discovered calorie-free potato chips.

    Huge looks and feels like a show that knows what it's talking about.

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

    Huge is one big circle of adolescent longing, and Holz-man and Dooley manage to find the pathos in the situation without condescending or going for cheap laughs at their characters' expense.

    This is a carefully assembled, emotionally attuned drama about obese teens stuck in a summer weight-loss camp.
  6. It's not a perfect show--a romance blooms too early and easily between Amber and a counselor, the soundtrack is more present than it needs to be and some moments tip from poignant to overwrought. But the richness of the characters and the story make it easy to overlook the flaws.
  7. 40
    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.

All the characters are so emotionally stilted yet the writers fail to flesh out the characters leaving the audience to figure out why. Hopefully we'll get more details as the series goes on. Collapse
