A Show With Something We Can All Relate To
I have to say the reason I like this show is because it's a lot more real than half the stuff on TV today and not nearly as annoying. Secret Life, for example, just makes me fume. It's a totally unrealistic portrayal of teenagers. Hannah Montana, Sonny with a Chance and Jonas are all shows about famous people trying to lead normal lives? How many of us can actually relate to that? But Huge is a real show about real kids with real problems. Weight is a rising issue in the United States and also something of concern among teens and their peers especially when we live in a society so obsessed with a certain image. Huge brings to light what those with weight issues may be feelings. And even those who are at a healthy weight probably have other image issues that they're not happy with that would make this a show they would enjoy. But the show also goes out of its way to highlight that these are also normal teenagers who get crushes, hook-up, LARP and everything else in between. It's just an all around enjoyable show.
It's has a bit of drama. It's funny, it has its romantic bits. It also has lots of different characters. Everyone can have their favorite and it's an enjoyable show that makes Monday nights good again. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's definitely worth checking out.
