I love this show so very much. I get inspired watching these talented and creative people make delicious and often beautiful food. The comraderie between the judges, hosts and bakers is so genuine. It is a competiton show that is full of kindness and encouragement which makes it a great way to decompress. I am soothed by the various accents around the tent, I'm a sucker for an accent. I would highly recommend this show during the often trying times we are living in.

If you prefer authenticity over fake drama, check this series out. Overall, a very good watch for those who dream of culinary victory. However, I do believe the judges favored pretty young Martha in season 1, and definitely felt Luis should have won.

This British production puts American cooking-show competitions to shame. The judges - Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, present a nice balance of good cop/bad cop to the contestants. The hosts are goofy but so sweet to the freaked out bakers. But it's the contestants that steal your hearts. There's no scripting, no fake drama: they share their hopes and fears in a frank, completely endearing way.

This is a fantastic show, every season is wonderful. It is one of my all-time favorite feel good shows and always inspires me to do some baking. :)

Happy, peppy, cheerful, nonstop fun (until something doesn't set properly). Very enjoyable. You can go to the PBS website for many recipes because this was shown on air this year.

Paul Hollywood is a manky spunge. I wanted Luis to win. He had the most creative designs.

I love reality competitions where everyone is kind and lovely and the competition is just for pride. And Mel and Sue are my favorite.

Excellent series with colorful contestants, creative bakes, some dry British humor, and Paul Hollywood & Mary Berry's unflagging expertise. This was a competitive season and the challenges were formibable. My only criticism is that an elderly contestant bowed out for health reasons, and almost nothing was said about this.
