Promos for this show comes up when we watch ‘Americas Funniest Videos‘ (AFV), probably the ONLY broadcast TV show we watch on a regular basis. Yesterday I set up the DVR to record the series. As YOU know we are suckers for “The Great British Bake Off” and have already finished watching Season 6 on YouTube because we couldn’t wait for it to appear on PBS.
I have heard mixed stories, mainly unflattering, about the US ‘spin off’ (and I will refrain from calling it the ‘rip off’). I note that Paul Hollywood, the MALE co-star of the BBC version, is MISSING. That alone is a huge difference. Paul, of course, with his pithy comments adds so much to the show and he KNOWS his baking. Having a non-baker as the male co-star might not work.
We will see. So a heads up.
