What a mundane show this is! Each hour-long episode consists of people completing three baking challenges in a kitchen-y tent thing and... that's it. I mean, sure, there's some sort of prestigious title at stake, but there's no real tension or conflict to speak of. The contestants' emotional states run the gamut from mild disappointment to humble satisfaction, and the show is scored to the sound of people waiting quietly for their ovens' timers to go off.
The show's leisurely pace and gentle tone, however, are unexpectedly intoxicating. Instead of berating the contestants, the show's hosts are content to drop in occasionally, fire off some terrible puns, and then slip out of view for long periods of time. There are multiple long, uninterrupted shots of people standing still while one of the two "fussy" judges takes a bite out of a Swiss roll. How could there possibly be any poverty or civil strife in the world when something like this is on the air? I want to wrap this show around myself like a blanket before falling asleep every night.
