I've tried, I really have. I cannot stand it or understand its enormous appeal. I wish it would fuck off back to BBC2 and that radio times would stop featuring it every bloody week.

YANBU. Less than zero interest here.

Given the subject, I can't resist giving you a biscuit !

MrsFrankRicard Wed 05-Aug-15 21:05:22

YANBU, I love cooking, I love cookery programmes but I find the GBBO format really boring. And Mary Berry is a twat.

youareallbonkers Wed 05-Aug-15 21:07:18

So don't watch it, there's plenty of other channels

laffymeal Wed 05-Aug-15 21:07:26

I can't buy into cake drama and that Hollywood twat is an arrogant knobber. Appreciate the fresh biscuit grin

I'm sorry it's perfectly avoidable, I have never watched a single bloody episode of BGT and haven't watched XFactir in years both of those get far far more attention than GBBO yet I don't notice wether any magazine covers them, I couldn't tell you a single contestant.

You don't like it fine there's something like 100 other channels to watch I presume your capable of turning a page in the radio times without reading it.

The "so don't watch it" argument is null. You can't get away from it, hence my thread.

You can't Mary a twat shock

It's like high fucking treason or some shit

cake

youareallbonkers Wed 05-Aug-15 21:11:39

Of course you can, watch another channel or read a book

Liberated71 Wed 05-Aug-15 21:12:16

I hate the pseudo drama of it all. Too much chat and posturing and not enough baking. Can you tell I don't watch it!
Thank heavens for Netflixsmile

laffymeal Wed 05-Aug-15 21:12:48

I didn't call Mary a twat, just Hollywood. Mary is ok really, Mel and Sue are totally irritating thogrin

NewFlipFlops Wed 05-Aug-15 21:13:31

I like it. You can definitely get away from it, unlike 'Strictly', which I don't get grin

DadfromUncle Wed 05-Aug-15 21:13:42

Yanbu and coverage of the bastard is everywhere masquarading as news ffs. I would rather set fire to my own face than watch 95% of the stuff on telly (so I don't)

ScrumpyBetty Wed 05-Aug-15 21:13:56

YABVVVVU, that is all.

BeaufortBelle Wed 05-Aug-15 21:15:22

Well I feel much the same about the Tennis, the Golf, the Football, the Rugby and especially the flipping Olympics. Do you know what I do, when the rest of the country is obsessed? I disengage and change the channel - there are plenty of choices nowadays.

I am a cook (amateur and family) not a sporty person. Can't you have the teeniest bit of empathy?

nicknameidea Wed 05-Aug-15 21:15:24

YANBU. I only know its on because most of my facebook friends are talking about it. And you can guarantee it'll be on the news tomorrow and for the rest of the fucking series.

I hate cooking, even baking. No chance I'm gonna sit and watch some people I dont know bake.

christinarossetti Wed 05-Aug-15 21:15:25

Me neither. It's absolutely beyond me, as is the fact that so many people are hooked.

Laffymeal if I can get away from X factor and BGT I'm damn sure you can get away from GBBO.

There's a magic button on your telly called OfF no one is forcing you to buy or read magazines

In fairness, it's on once a year for, what, ten or twelve weeks, and is avoidable compared to, say, the Premier League season, which lasts forever, gets entire radio stations devoted to it, endless tv coverage, and featured on the news and in newspapers alongside actual news. GBBO is small beer in comparison. People might tweet about a melted Baked ALaska, but there aren't hours of talk radio featuring fans frothing at the mouth over bad refereeing decisions on Victoria sponge.

Libitina Wed 05-Aug-15 21:24:11

Not get GBBO??

Clutches pearls

KinkyAfro Wed 05-Aug-15 21:27:11

I love it and looking forward to an extra slice with Jo brand on Friday

MrsBertMacklin Wed 05-Aug-15 21:29:13

I'm happy that they've got rid of the Cakes of Yore segment. If Mel and Sue could get some new schtick I'd enjoy it more.
