  1. Another disappointed fan of Garage Sale Mysteries series here. I concur with the idea that starting a new mystery series with Sarah Strange as a lead. Judging by her IMDB list she seems like a well-known actress in Canada who can carries a series easily. I also hope it opens up for Darrow & Darrow to get another order. Admittedly the court scenes were too farcical but the chemistry between the main three characters was too good to be wasted. I liked that side stories around the rest of the cast were relatively intriguing. Not going to happen but I wish they would restart Murder, She Baked series. I think someone else playing the Hannah character with a new love-interest would work just fine. I don't know, I just loved the series. Again, probably not a chance, why not a few more The Gourmet Detective movies...
  2. Really strange why they couldn't just inform the viewers that he was on vacation.
  3. FWIW, this tweet indicates Rachel will be hosting this Friday and next Monday show live.

    Britain's Best Home Cook

    Mary has had rotten luck regarding male co-judges. :-/ (I misremembered, she wasn't in the canceled GABS season.) Dan Doherty: BBC Celebrity Chef Hit by Sexual Harassment Allegations from Female Kitchen Staff Chef Dan Doherty Quits BBC Series Following Sexual Misconduct Investigation BBC spokesperson “We’ll be appointing a new judge for Britain’s Best Home Cook to join the rest of the line-up. We’re looking forward to a new series which will be back on air in 2020,”
  5. This was from last month. 'An audience member asks Trevor when his mom will be on the show. Answer? NEVER.' He talked a lot about his mom during his book tour last year as well.

    I doubt the recognizable surname did any harm to her career. Had she thought it was an issue, she would've taken her ex-husband's name.

    The Great British Baking Show: Holidays https://www.netflix.com/title/81013505 (Eater.com) The Great British Baking Show is also getting a holiday special, which will land on Netflix on November 30. This one-off episode will feature hosts Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith welcoming “some favorite bakers back to the tent for a holiday confection competition.” It sounds like there will be only the last year's Christmas one. However, the description under the trailer on Netflix page says 'two yuletide specials'. So I think both Christmas & Festive episode will be available after all. Who will be on the show, The Great Christmas Bake Off / Great Festive Bake Off bakers revealed *To avoid any accidental spoilers, it's a link to my post from last year. It still has information about at which stage the said baker was eliminated, one from UK S02, the rest from UK S03-S07.

    S10.E06: Kid 'n Play

    I understand where you guys are coming from, as it's clear that continuity hasn't been the writers' top priority. Having said that, in reality people's preference do change with time. I used to think a certain sport was such a bore, couldn't understand how anyone could enjoy watching it. Now it's one of my top two favorite sports. In my case, I didn't even need any sort of guidance or introduction to it from someone else. It just happened. So from my own experience, it's not unrealistic.

    S09.E05: Spice Week

    Judging from their tweets and comments in various forms, Rahul was loved by the fellow bakers and the judges and hosts, although you can say that about almost every contestant this year. They showed some footage of the bakers having meals, partying together as an epilogue and he looked far more relaxed there. So, I guess it was partly due to the nature of the environment and his upbringing but also due to editing. Unfortunately all we can see is what the editors let us do and Rahul or any other bakers can't do anything about it.

    According to C4 subtitles, it's 'pond water'. As for Hollywood Handshake, I didn't mind either way though. Someone did a serious research(?) on that subject... (*Spoiler alert* It was made post-Spice Week) https://www.buzzfeed.com/scottybryan/paul-hollywood-handshakes-too-many

    My bad. I was less cautious, as now all the latest series are available and assumed only people who've watched the whole S09 would click the link...

    S09.E01: Biscuit Week

    [Sandi] Today, Prue and Paul would like you to make a spectacular biscuit selfie portrait... Your selfie should be constructed from layers of decorated biscuits and sandwiched together with fillings of your choice. Your portrait needs to be of you somewhere memorable. This Showstopper is a fiendish test of our bakers' biscuit-making ability. Not only must they engineer a giant biscuit canvas, but also make multiple intricate elements to bring their portraits to life. [Prue] This is the first opportunity these bakers have had of showing us artistry, skill, imagination. We want the selfie to be built up with layers of biscuits because we want some depth to it. [Paul] We want a proper portrait displayed on an easel, so obviously, the biscuit sliding is the big problem. They could use caramel, they could use royal icing. They're the perfect things to bond with biscuit and stand the force of gravity. [Prue] Importantly, we don't want style over substance. If they don't taste like the most beautiful biscuits you've ever eaten, they're not going to get anywhere. It is a monumental challenge. [Noel] As well as a dough that results in biscuits sturdy enough to construct a 3D work of art ... it must also deliver exquisite flavours. So yeah, I guess they had to.
