Why is British television so much comfier than American television?
>>
Bake off is just a treasure among reality tv because everyone's just nice and there's no reason for any of them to really be competitive against any of the other contestants. Compare that to chopped or a Ramsey thing where you expect them to say "This is shit you did a terrible job", the worst they do on bake off is say "This is bad but here's what you did wrong and how you can fix it next time".

It's refreshing because all the contestants have to do is bake and not fuck up. There's no politics or anything involved
>>
It’s not
>>
cause ya'll got tea and crumpets
>>
Only BBC and channel 4 makes good TV.
Although UK is severely lacking good gameshows, the chase is the only decent one atm.
>>
Reminder that Rahul was very obviously pre-chosen to be the winner and carried to the end by the judges.

This is precisely why its so boring, who gives a shit about baking?
>>
>>106868280
Who the fuck cares, it's not like there's a prize or anything. The cool black dude that lost halfway through last season got to host the show meanwhile I can't even remember who the winner was.
>>
>>106868288
>wanting a show to be about politics
You're exactly why this board is so shitty.
>>
Remember that time they hired an actor to play a muslim woman so they could have her win the contest and look progressive?
>>
Anyone check out Sick Note ?
>>
>>106868438
Remember that time you pulled some bullshit out of your ass? Yeah, I remember that like it was a minute ago. Which it was.
>>

>a Ramsey thing where you expect them to say "This is shit you did a terrible job"
Which is funny that you mention Ramsay because he's a lot nicer on the British show and plays up the asshole chef thing for American sensibilities.

I remember watching some Iron Chef where they had Bobby Flay on and the fucker got up and stood up on the cooking table and all the Japanese chefs were furious. Americans are just assholes that ruin everything they touch.

I care, it makes the show pretty boring to watch when it's so obviously fixed. The guy had never even heard of half the stuff they were supposed to make, and even when they threw in softballs for him like how they had to bake naan more than once this season for some reason, he still fucked it up.
>>
>>106868247
>BBC
>good TV
Pick one.
>>
>>106868608
I liked that he kept eyeing the French girl like he was going to get laid.

He had no chance
>>
>>106868608
I think you're just biased against him because he's Indian. The guy consistently did great the whole season with Danish Week being the only time he screwed up, and luckily for him Manon did worse.
>>
>>106867749
Because the British audience doesn't crave people being nasty to each other for the sake of being nasty as much as the American audience, and their shows reflect this audience preference.
>>
>>106868473
Is that like Death Note?
>>
>>106868436
It doesn't have to be Trump bashing or whatever, there are politics at every level of communities/relationships

Its like no one actually gives a shit about the business acumen of candidates of The Apprentice, everyone just watches for the shitslinging and for when people fuck up
>>
The new cast is bad, but I’m glad they are continuing the show.

I like Noel and Sandi and they're not exactly new at this point since they took over like two years ago.
>>
>>106868935
Noel and the short lady are way better than the previous ones... the dyke and the Britfaced blonde lady. Don't know their names.
>>
>>106867749

Did the old muffin lady die? They replaced the two dikes with a shemale vampire?
>>
>>106868996
I agree that they're better but how can you not know the name Mary Berry, it is the second best name for a woman I have ever heard after Lucy Lawless.
>>
>>106869341
Noel Fielding is a man, he's just British.
>>
>>106869418
I'm talking about the two previous hosts, not the judges

You watch a shitty show designed for middle aged women, tell us about your love for gogglebox too.

>>106869572
Oh boo hoo, not enough action and explosions and angst for the little zombified American?
>>
>>106867749
Because they don't turn contests into emotional warfare.
>>
>>106869706
>you need to enjoy a shitty baking show or you’re a zombified american!
Menopause kicking in?

how would an american know your an ageing woman with shit taste in television?
>>
>>106869827
>I am far more sophisticated than the average barbarian who watched sports and action movies for the hopes of glimpsing some antiquated masculinity. I am a true man of the new age, using brain over brawn, you see. This is why I can appreciate the intricacies or watching people bake cakes instead of subject myself to the pathetic masses who seek out braindead excitement and adrenaline.

Are you a woman by chance?
>>
>>106867963
I haven't watched Face Off in years but everyone helped each other out on that show. plus Laura is one of the prettiest girls in reality tv and super talented. She started on that show and now works on movies like Infinity War.
>>
>>106868645
BBC make plenty of good shows. you're completely lying if you deny that.

It's not good to think about America 24/7, Nigel.

Cheese is a kind of meat
