Netflix doesn’t even have all the seasons I don’t think. Makes it difficult to work out which ones we’ve missed. 

I demand the release of every series.

iirc its only the first two series that netflix doesn't have. plus one of the series isn't under the regular bake off, its called something like "bake off: the beginnings" and then they/PBS also fucked around with the order a bit for the first couple series they aired.

I'd watch the fuck out of Richard Ayoade cooing over Battenburgs and Vienese Whirls.

Pastry week!

When I heard them announce the technical as baklava I assumed we were headed towards one of those classic technicals where everyone implodes and Paul is pissed. Amazing 5 out of 7 managed to do a really, really good job.

This season feels very stratified. It's basically Jurgen vs Guiseppe for the win, with Jurgen strong favourite. Chigs vs Chrystelle for who gets to make up the numbers in the final, and George vs Lizzie for who gets knocked out next and then the week after, with George almost certainly going this week.

This was almost spot on.

Jurgen not being in the final is a surprise but it seems to happen every season that 1 or 2 of the bakers who are in danger in a couple early episodes put it all together and adapt to the competition. Meanwhile poor Jurgen came in red hot. And he basically got overtaken in the final stretch.

I thought Giuseppe was fortunate last week though. Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm a casual Bake Off fan...) but it felt as if they put him through on past performance, Lizzie clearly didn't deserve to go out. Felt like Farke going after the Chelsea win. 

Wouldn't happen on Strictly!

Yeah there's inconsistencies in how they send people home. Lizzie had an absolutely stellar week and they sent her home. Clearly of the 5 remaining she was a class below but not during that week. They basically made their decision based on who was most likely to not eff up in the weeks ahead. Whereas this week's elimination they tossed aside complete body of work and went with that week's performance alone.

Spoiler

Also the real death flag is when they open patisserie week with someone saying "I feel very confident about this week". Same thing happened to Hermine last year.

Happy for Giuseppe. But Jurgen should have absolutely made that final going off the 'best' 3 bakers. 

Even then, Giuseppe won based on consistency throughout rather than his final bakes.

Yeah it's always a weird thing with that show, whether they grade on how you did in one particular week or how you've done throughout.

Though Crystelle would have undoubtedly won had her focaccia not been a disaster I think.
