Critic Reviews for The Great British Baking Show Series 6

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.

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.

I find myself punching the air, or gasping in excitement, or clutching at my head in despair. The characters might be attempting to scale a mountain or swim an ocean, so badly does one begin to care about their fates.

A rousing celebration of another hit series. The camaraderie between the bakers was palpable - one reason why this cosy contest has become a phenomenon.

Jun 26, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The drama never approaches "Game of Thrones" thresholds, yet there is real suspense - not just in revealing who's playing through but also in the small frenzy and fuss of custards that don't set and flavors that fail.

[Nadiya] Hussain is not just a star baker, she is a star.

Apr 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Nadiya Hussain, she of the many wonderful facial expressions and endearing nervous giggle, was named the winner of the sixth season of Great British Bake Off. And it was thoroughly deserved.

Jun 26, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The Great British Baking Show presents-without hesitation or apology-an ordered and rational world.

The fact that Nadiya ended up becoming one of the most beloved reality TV winners ever was really just the cherry on top of a perfect series.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

There is also something so hopeful about the cast of the show. They help each other, despite the fact that this is indeed a competition, and seem genuinely upset when anyone has to leave.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The Great British Baking Show, in fact, may be the only reality competition that fits within one of my favorite categories of television: Good people trying to do good things.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

It's nice people under mad pressure doing something that involves a lot of skill, and who want to share that skill but who also want to win a contest, but manage to feel that way without wanting others to fail... this is beautiful.
