The Great British Baking Show: Season 2 (2015)
Tv Season Info
The judges pitched in, by lobbing quite harsh criticisms at bakers who had clearly done their best. That sort of thing would never happen at, say, the final of The X Factor, when the judges ramp up the glory by telling everyone how great they are.
The Great British Bake Off is never a one-horse race, it's a dark-horse race, making the show itself a gentle, schoolmarmish admonishment to those brasher TV talent shows.
GBBO is basically much the same format as X Factor. A bit fluffier, but no more real. Which is perfectly OK, so long as no one is trying to claim otherwise.
It's the passive-aggressive niceness of it that I find so grating... And yet when I actually sit down and watch the thing, I find it hard not to be sucked in. Despite everything, there's just something so compelling about it.
