CRITICS OF "The Great British Bake Off - Season 7"
Fans will be happy, because the rest of the world might be going to hell in a handcart, but in a tent in the grounds of a stately home in Berkshire, the status quo has not changed, going on this first episode at least.
If all reality TV were like The Great British Baking Show, I would watch more reality TV. It's warm, friendly, comforting, and it allows you to appreciate the work of regular, hard-working people divorced from ego and self-doubt
Bake Off's format is a well-oiled (well-buttered?) machine and it would be foolish to change a winning recipe. If this opening episode was a cake, it would have earned the coveted "Hollywood handshake".
We feel very strongly about preserving the integrity of Bake Off like a particularly good jam, so maybe it's all for the best that this was just a classic finale, keeping the spotlight quite rightly on the three bakers.
Maybe in 100 years time our robotic great grandchildren will look back at GBBO with disbelief. Or maybe they'll still be watching Bake Off in the year 2050 because after seven series, it shows no signs of going stale.
