  • Great British Baking Show (spoilers)

    I'm now wondering if we have the makings of a hit show here.. 'The Great British Cardboard, PVC tube, Lego and modelling clay show'.. It would get rid of the tricky issue of allowing cakes to cool before icing/frosting them.. I'll see if I can get Netflix to commission 10 seasons. 
  • Great British Baking Show (spoilers)

    Without wishing to spoil the surprise of what anyone is baking, I have to say that I was a little disappointed to see several contestants resorting to using rice krispies treats to augment their creations. I know it is used by some professionals as well but it's not baking IMHO... Gentle, baking related rant over <span>:smile:</span>

    I'll be curious to see what kind of content they put out on Netflix.  I was one of the few that didn't have much of a problem with season 8 so this is really intriguing to me.
    I could see the faults but enjoyed it anyway so I am looking forward to seeing where this goes too..

    I have zero interest in superheroes so I didn’t expect to get into this at all, but I ended up watching five episodes Friday night and the rest when I got up Saturday. I loved it. My one complaint is Karl Urban’s weird accent - I thought at first he was using his normal NZ accent, then that he was trying to sound Australian, and then someone called him a limey and I realised he was meant to be English. Could they not have sprung for a dialect coach?

    Also, Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan’s kid is a pretty good actor. 
     honestly i was trying to figure the accent out all season. i couldn't tell if he was UK, AU or NZ. he was sort of all over the place. but i do know alot of my fellow americans are racist and calling him a limey could just be someone who thinks hes british cuz of the accent. 
    Nah, he definitely was meant to be British - they specified it in one of the later episodes. 
    He manages to sound like a generic Londoner/S. East England native when he's not swearing(he could get a job On the British soap 'eastenders'... Sadly, thats not saying much) but as soon as the ripe language starts, his native Kiwi tones really kick in. As the Butcher swears /curses every second word, it is quite noticeable but I still enjoy his performance and am loving The Boys :)
