Wondering what to watch on Netflix? Our CelebTelly Staff highly recommends Season 1 of “The Great British Baking Show” with its two engaging episodes entitled, “The Great Christmas Baking Show” & “The Great Festive Baking Show.” Here in Season 1, competitors from past seasons bake sweet Yuletide treats for judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.
In the episode, “The Great Christmas Baking Show,” the title of “Christmas Star Baker” will be bestowed upon the greatest of bakers with “technicals” and a “show stopper.”
The same formula is applied in “The Great Festive Baking Show” where all decisions are made with a little bubbly (we wonder if it’s English Sparkling Wine!). This is what we love about this show. From an American perspective, you find yourself leaning in to pick up the quickly stated British quips and absorb the Christmas cheer and traditions that lie in the heart of a good ole British Happy Christmas!
The bakers in both episodes range in talent, so the predictability of “Christmas Star Baker” is not obvious. Each baker has personality and a unique flare that they bring to the show and to the oven! The hosts and judges are an absolute delight with just the right touches of cheeky humor.
Check out “The Great British Baking Show: Holidays” on Netflix during this holiday season!
