Nobody notices the fat kids
on November 14, 2010
Huge was an ABC Family show that ran in the summer months of 2010. It focused on a group of teenagers at a weight loss camp. It had 10 episodes total, and the timeframe was the first few weeks of camp. Most important, it was a smart, original show with realistic characters, quality writing and talented actors. The show made it clear: you shouldn't hate your body, you should be healthy. An amazing message during this time when over half of Americans are overweight, and actors on most other tv shows are stick thin.
ABC Family is a terrible network. I have tried to watch their other shows, such as The Secret Life, Pretty Little Liars and Melissa and Joey. They could be any other time slot filler-type show on any other network, yet these are the shows that will be on next year. It makes me sad, because they actually had the best, most realistic show about teens since Freaks and Geeks, and they cancelled it after just 10 episodes. I had hoped some other network would pick it up, because with the proper marketing, this show could have been just what it the title is: HUGE.
