Great British Bake Off 2017

DEAL WITH IT


#202

Not everyone has a fancy box where you can pause or rewind TV though, right?

(I don’t)


#203

I’m loving Meow’s conviction :smiley:


#204

Really? I thought all digital TV allowed that function?


#205

Nope. I have a smart TV (granted it’s a bit old now) and I definitely cannot pause any live telly.


#206

Nope


#207

Well, that’s me told.


#208

:smiley:


#209

Was never really that fussed by it when it was on BBC so my only input is that Noel Fielding was only equally as cringeworthy as Mel and Sue were so no tangible change there IMO.


#210

right so we’re doing an elaborate sweepstake whereby you choose a name from the “hat” (eleanor’s hands) and then if you go out you have to make summat based on that week’s theme and bring it into work. its a fiver in, winner gets £30, two runners up get £15 each. i got chris who made that cake without butter that looked like he dropped it ffs


#211

never seen an episode of the old one and will never see an episode of the new one

just came in here expecting you all to be slagging it and i am EXTREMELY disappointed. don’t @ me.


#212

It’s about 95% the same as the old one. It’s perfectly acceptable. You’re missing out. Cake.


#213

Have seen up to (but not including) the tech bake.

It’s good! I like the new team, has freshened it up a bit I think, was getting a bit stale (like a cake lol)

I’m giving meow three weeks before she caves in


#214

Meow definitely watched it.


#215

Prue Leith sounds like an ingredient ffs.


#216

A TV doesn’t count as “smart” just because its mum says it is.


#217

Enjoy these early episodes when you don’t know anybody’s name.

‘Yeah tashy glass knife man is definitely gone here’.


#218

It was alright. It was almost entertaining watching Fielding almost visibly going “Don’t be a dick. Don’t be a dick” to himself the whole way. It won’t last.

So who is the most hateful judge then?

  • Hollywood and his fucking motorbikes
  • Toksvig and her incessant twee dullness
  • Leith and her joyless hatred of humanity
  • Twatboy
