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 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.

Here's what I don't understand: people love this show, we all want to watch more episodes but they are impossible to find online, even to purchase. Why are producers and distributors so stingy with shows when people are eager to watch and some even willing to pay? I paid to watch on PBS and would absolutely buy more seasons if they were available. Networks that refuse to allow their shows to stream are doing a grave disservice.

Grumble grumble. I love this show and wish I could see all the seasons!

I assume PBS will be airing more seasons . they've only shown 2 and the second one was pretty recent. I watched the latest season they showed on TV streaming on their website. I'm guessing that season will be on netflix soon enough.

Yes! I've seen only one season/series and loved it, but have no (legal) way of watching the others. By the time we were halfway through, I was so attached to all the bakers that I hated to see anyone go home! And the estate (?) where they had the tent set up was beautiful.

Even with The Male Judge being kind of a weiner, it's leaps and bounds better than the shows where the judges are obnoxious and it's high stress for everyone. Plus Mary Berry and the hosts are all amazing.

There are 6 seasons. That's what I don't understand. Why only make two seasons available? I want them all!

UK peeps: the new series started yesterday! I (grudgingly) went to my in-laws' for dinner last night, but I'll be watching it on catch up later so I'll be back to talk about it then. I have been waiting impatiently for the new series... so exciting!

Yay, new Bake Off!

I was annoyed at the amount of gelatine in last nights episode (grrr!) and the judges general ignorance (One contestant made a yuzu fruit glaze...stating "it tastes a bit like a cross between a lemon and a lime"...when Paul came to judge "I don't like it because I can't tell if it tastes like lemon or lime" well duh, because it's yuzu, not lemon or lime!) but I still enjoyed it.

I kept reading that one contestant was vegan but then he wasn't? Maybe they just didn't mention it (or I missed it, I don't want to pay a TV licence so I had to watch it with my family) and my sister pointed out that he made quiche at one point in his video clip so it's unlikely. A vegan baker would have been so awesome.

^ Rav, the Sikh guy, was vegan for 6 months apparently and says he is "predominantly plant based" and we all know what "plant based" means (not vegan).

Ah so he was on a "vegan diet" as opposed to being a vegan. That's too bad. Although I actually think even if there were a vegan on the show that they would still have to do the technical challenge with meat/eggs/dairy anyway, I can't imagine that they would allow substitution.
