  • Baldmove Merch.. ON TOUR! .. EDIT..Or Naming your kids after Baldmove hosts!

    I was wearing my bald move shirt at the birth of my son.  Does that count?
    I think you have won this thread :)
  • New Collection of Great British Baking Show Just Dropped on Netflix in The States.

    As a UK watcher, I can confirm that the GBBO is a Big Hit here. When channel 4 won the hosting rights from the BBC, Mary, Sue and Mel chose not to change channels and have been given other shows to host by the BBC. Lots of fans (me and my family included) thought it was going to be disastrous to change the hosts and we all believed (incorrectly) that the running length of the show would be cut(to fit in adverts). The hosts have done their best to fill the void left by the former presenters and Channel 4 took the extraordinary step of awarding it a prime time 1hour 15 minute slot (not the usual hour) so no content would be cut.
    We have also had Christmas specials (with former competitors) and a series of Cancer charity fundraisers (featuring celebrities.. One of the best, who won their episode was Terri Hatcher..She CAN really bake!!) So we have seen quite a lot of the newer hosts and are all really used to them and have grown fond of them :) it is Channel 4s highest rated shows and continues to grow its audience.

    The second Season with Paul, Pru, Sandi and Noel started just this week here in the UK. It started with a great 'in-joke' about Pru and her misuse of Twitter last season so they are showing a great line in British self deprecating humour. The Bakers were all great again.. And that's the main thing, I can't wait to see how they get on this year!
    Happy Viewing!!
  • Baldmove Merch.. ON TOUR! .. EDIT..Or Naming your kids after Baldmove hosts!

    Hi fellow Baldmovers, I've just realised that I'm currently sitting by a pool in Cape Verde (Island of Sal) in a Baldmove 'Fiesta de Lori' tee-shirt and wondered what other wonderful (weird) places Balmove merch has ended up? I know I have worn this is Dubai in the past (as well as the UK -where I live).
    Cheers! *swigs yet another gin & tonic*

  • Rugby World Cup 2019

    Just watched my very first match. It was between NZ and SA. This was basically my reaction to trying to understand Rugby:

    Fear not @gguenot, as a proud English Rugby supporter, I have to acknowledge that Middle Earth.. Er I mean New Zealand is the spiritual home of Rugby Union (we won't go Into Rugby league here..) and some lovely people there have understood how complicated it may appear and have published this great beginners guide
    I do hope it helps!
  • The Crown Season 3 - SPOILERS

    We started yesterday. I think the casting is excellent as well but I think they have made Tobiaz mendes look a little too old for 1960s Phillip.. I loved the Spy in the Palace in the first episode too!
