Critic Reviews for The Great British Baking Show: Season 1

This has been a show-stopping year for the cake-making contest.

It's been very, very hard for American unscripted television to employ pure gentleness without cloying sentimentality, to balance kindness and bluntness... The Great British Baking Show does [this] effortlessly.

The show is never without drama... but it rarely feels out-of-control, and always, without fail, makes us crave a good pastry.

Nancy Birtwhistle, grandmother of eight, microwaver of dough, bottler of homegrown fruit and the one with decades of wily kitchen knowhow, had gloriously come from miles behind to win.

Mild, mouth-watering baking contest great fun for all ages.

December 15, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

However, this seemingly straightforward series is anything but: It bucks reality competition convention at every turn, espousing an uplifting, unquestionably humanist philosophy.
