GBBS's prioritization of craft, skill, and consistency levels its playing field... setting it apart from other popular cooking competition shows like Tom Colicchio's self-aggrandizingTop Chefor Gordon Ramsay's testosterone-fueledMasterChef.

I admit I was not prepared to let the Channel 4 episodes of Baking Show into my heart, but they won me over.

Congratulations to [the] winner of this year's The Great British Bake Off whose triumph surely represents a victory for shy, reserved, depressive pessimists everywhere.

Ruby was sparky, Kim-Joy was, well, a joy, but Rahul, the shy PhD student, was an absolute sweetie.

We want to hate the new version, but just can't. Turns out Prue Leith, an old friend of Mary Berry, is delightful.

For me, [the camerawork] is one of the unsung secrets of the show's success: the trickery that creates drama out of, well, baking.

It's a great tribute to the presence of Sandi Toksvig, and particularly Noel Fielding, that we hardly miss them at all.

The world may be careening out of control, but the warm smell of baking has returned to our living rooms and everything is just fine.

Yet it's generally as you were: same tent, same cloying music, same voiceovers in which Fielding sounds strangely flat. The only difference is that he's had a haircut and Paul Hollywood looks as if he's lost weight.

Perhaps the most entertaining part of any episode of The Great British Baking Show is the crazy levels of tension wrung out of the bakers pacing, staring daggers through their oven doors, and willing their bakes to rise.
