My very own website!!! Yikes!
Well GBBO, you got greedy. But I don’t blame you, it’s the way of the world.
I am over the loss of Mary, Mel and Sue. I was actually really excited about watching the new series (sorry BBC!) and we sat down together last night to enjoy ourselves and be entertained by the triumphs and disasters of 12 new bakers.
I tried to watch this with an open mind and I honestly thought the show was perfect as always. It was interesting to see the new dynamics developing between the judges and presenters, and they all seemed to work well together.
My problem is the adverts. It ruined the whole flow of the programme and completely spoiled my enjoyment 🙁 Seriously, there was only 3 minutes of the programme shown after the final adverts and that included the end credits.
I understand that Channel 4 need to recoup some of the extortionate price they paid for the show through sponsorship and advertising but some sensitivity to viewers should have been considered.
Chris felt exactly the same way and we have decided that we will not watch it live again but use a catch up service to reduce the number of ads or allow them to be skipped.
I wonder how many others will feel the same or give up entirely…
