Storyline

A half-hour dramedy that takes a fictional look at the glitzy, chaotic and often hilarious life of being a Hollywood "it" kid. Set in the world of the Hollywood elite packed with A-list parties and privilege, it tells a coming-of-age story infused with pop culture fame. It's not easy being teenagers growing up in the shadow of their parents' superstar status, and "Gigantic" skewers the celebrity machine while exposing the humanity and comedy beneath the glamour of Tinseltown. With an insider look behind the tabloids and gossip blogs, it features an ensemble cast that includes: 17-year-old Anna (Grace Gummer) and her younger brother Walt (Tony Oller), both kids of a famous movie star couple; their best friends Piper (Jolene Purdy) and Finn (Malcolm Kelley); frenemy Vanessa (Gia Mantegna) and Anna's boy crush with a big secret Joey (Ryan Rottman).

Watchable I guess.

The writing isn't all that good. I find that often, it's not the actors fault bu the writers that the characters come off as...one dimensional. A lot of plot holes too where you can easily say "Why didn't they just *insert obvious solution*...The show can pack in a few good one-liners here and there.

For a show about the glitzy and glamorous life of Hollywood rich kids it's poorly edited and everything looks choppy. Often use of bad camera angles and inappropriate lighting. I personally think this is the show's worst part.

Grace Gummer isn't as awful as people say she is. But i'm not so sure that she would be on this show if it wasn't for the fact that her mother is Meryl Streep. She's pretty bland and just below average. The rest of the cast is just fine. Nothing spectacular. The highlights being Gia Mantegna and Skyler Day.

Many people say this is shallow but what's with the not so attractive leads. Normally I wouldn't mind, but for a show about glitz and glamour that not heading for realism...What's the point of not having an all around super good looking cast?

This along with Degrassi is the only original programming Teennick currently has. It's a little sad that Teennick cancelled shows like Instant Star and South of Nowhere to go in this direction but what are you going to do...The only reason I watch this show is because I have nothing to watch after Degrassi...which despite being a low budget half hour Canadian teen drama that has taken a toll for the worse in the past few seasons...is still better than this show.
