    Good final that wasn't totally dependant on a final big cake at the end. I want one of those sausage rolls then a slice of chocolate cake. Neat that Candice and Jane are going on a trip together. I do love happy Bake Off everything right in the world feeling.

    It is a nationalistic capitalist program that promotes over consumption and a nostalgic view of  Britain (notice how N.Ireland is excluded), inflicting misery on millions around the world. All viewers are Leavers.

    To be fair, it is the Great British Bake Off. NI's not in GB, although it is in the UK, the UK being the United Kingdom of Great Britain *and* Northern Ireland.

    I know. That's my point, that they have been excluded. Islandist.

    At least they let 'em in. In fact one of the finalists was from NI, no?

    @Phattso Even worse. Patronising.

    Ah good on Candice. I did think Jane would nab it but was hoping Andrew could pull it off, the boys haven't won for a few years :)

    Sausage rolls AND crackling sounds so awesome. I noticed hollywood nicking a few crackling tails in the tasting the greedy fucker.

    What was most surprising about this year was the severe drop in quality compared to last year's lot, and many of the previous years.

    While I'd concede that some of last year was pushing the boundaries of what you might call amateur baking, this year you got the impression some of them couldn't boil an egg.

    Can you imagine any of those finalists in last year's quarter final? They'd have been annihilated. Totally embarrassed.

    Still, entertaining as always. :)

    I think that was probably their aim when selecting the contestants, after the moans over the last few years of people being too good.

    Yeah, but in the annual spirit of Bake Off I've been in the kitchen with an appropriate theme every Wednesday. When the shit I'm churning out looks better than what they're churning out, it swung too far the other way. :)

    I realised last night that the ginger baker Andrew does actually look like a young Ginger Baker:

    Hmm, Pure Leith knows her shit, but I'm not convinced (based on her British Menu appearances) that she's all that televisual. Mind you, I wouldn't have said Berry was all that suited to modern telly either before hand.

    I'm more concerned about what hateful comedians c4 will drag out to replace the Mel & Sue shaped slot.

    Bad idea to try and replace Mary Berry like for like (ie. old lady). They should have gone for someone a bit younger.

    Yeah I'm not a big fan of her either. Doesn't bring that same grandmother warmth. It's like top gear and Chris Evans all over again!

    Fielding is among the most punchable people on television. I can't see this being remotely watchable.

    Until I see it I'm still not sold on Sandi Toksvig, Prue Leith and Noel Fielding but credit where credit is due, the advert for the new series is fucking brilliant :lol:
