This show might be old news to many people, but my boyfriend and I have only recently discovered it via Netflix. It is our new favorite show. It's so good! It's like... A reality TV show competition where people care about each other and make really sweet comments to each other and bake in a meadow with little ducklings and shiitake. And there's an old British lady who unabashedly loves a spiked Bailey's doughnut. And they don't even edit explosion-noises into it! What?!

You can watch the next season in PBS.com! I want to find out how to watch the rest of the seasons.

Hubby and I just discovered this the other day too, and we binge watched the whole series. We are now re-watching it with the kiddos. It has now fueled an obsession to make a vegan version of a swiss roll. I have attempt number two cooling right now, and soon I will fill it with a chocolate buttercream.

PBS.com seems to only keep episodes for a short time, so only episodes 5-8 are available now, and 5 said it's going away soon. Is there someplace else to find the whole thing? Or do I need to just hope that season comes to netflix too?

Ashamed to admit I followed the whole series on the Daily Fail (ahem, Mail) website and I cried tears of joy when they announced the winner, having never actually seen an episode...

Aaah. The Great British Bake Off is the best thing ever. I'm super jealous that you have like five seasons to watch.

Mary Berry is awesome and totally loves anything boozy. They also talk about soggy bottoms a lot which, of course, is hilarious.

I like it, even though Paul Hollywood is an utter bellend!

I was doing some research and apparently the 1st season they showed here was the 4th season on BBC. The one with Chetna (who was my favorite btw)

Yes, Chetna was awesome. I love her smile! Although actually there were a lot of people with beautiful smiles on that season.

Yes to Chetna and Martha <3 But also, anytime anyone goes home, I'm always sad. Because they're all so nice. I just need these people and the kids on MasterChef Jr. to show American adults how to behave on reality shows.

Of course the US version isn't as good, but I love Nia and Ian and I forgot about my crush on Johnny Iuzzini (is sad for top chef: just desserts all over again).

Wonder if I can make my smart TV play the PBS eps?

Yes. It is called The Great Holiday Baking Show. It is on each Monday for the month of December on abc.

It is ok but definitely not as good as the original.

Yeah totally not as good, but it fulfills the need a little bit.

Have now branched out to http://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/holida ... nship.html cause at least it has Duff. And Lorraine Pascale who is British and lovely. Fair warning, the main host is a Deen.
