Two gone. Lauren Katz, who is in a class to herself, has been ‘Star Baker’ on both episodes. She will win. Click on image to access ABC Webpage for the show.


greatbritishbakeofdfsfsfWe have now watched the first two episodes and we are all in agreement that the 6 American bakers on the ABC show are nowhere near as good as any of the bakers that have appeared in the iconic (and now widely aped) “The Great British Bake Off“.

Given that I, a Brit through-and-through, am always biased, I didn’t say anything about this to begin with. But the two kids having devoured all the episodes of Seasons 4 to 6 (the latter on YouTube) not only adore the British show but are now in the ranks of the cognoscente. They were the first to comment on this halfway through episode 1. Deanna concurred.

I heard the same refrain from the 3 ‘girls’ during episode 2. I have to agree. Bar Lauren Katz who is in a class by herself the others don’t appear to have the expertise, technique, experience or finesse of those that have appeared in the BBC shows. Some of the creations in the ABC show have been laughable if not downright pitiful. Just goes to make you appreciate how lucky we have been with the BBC show.

Good news: there are tons of episodes of the BBC show on YouTube

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.
