Huge (2010)

Huge just completed its first season and I was completely enthralled with the stories created around Camp Victory, a summer camp for fat teens. Intelligent writing, multi-layered characters and excellent performances (Nikki Blonsky, Hayley Hasselhoff, Raven Goodwin, Ari Stidham, Ashley Holliday, Harvey Guillen, Paul Dooley, and Gina Torres to name a few of the actors) make this series more of a microcosm for anyone with issues of self-confidence than the one trick pony it could've been. It is a bit strange that the season ended mid-summer and now fans have to wait all winter for the second season end of summer but that's a small price to pay for quality.
