“The Great British Bake-Off” is Coming Back!

An amazing trailer announcing the new season of "Bake Off"!
British Bake Off Praying to Paul Hollywood

Otherwise known in the U.S. as “The Great British Baking Show”, this show is returning for its 10th season overall, third since it moved from BBC to Channel 4 in the U.K (and surviving the change of three-quarters of their cast). Similarly, it moved in the U.S. from PBS to Netflix.

Last year’s contest began airing in the U.K. in August, so it should start at a similarly date this year; not sure exactly when Netflix will drop it here.

But great news all around.

We’ve been quite obsessed with this show, but I can’t say from the beginning. That’s because in the U.S., they began airing in 2014 as Season 1 even though in reality it was Season 5. Then they moved back and forth, not airing the seasons in order and not airing the earliest onest at all. Even Netflix in the U.S. doesn’t have all the seasons. We found this out when we were in London last year and logged into Netflix, finding that we were able to access the elusive Seasons 1 and 2.

There’s even a book by Anita Singh called The Story of the Great British Bake Off that goes into the origins of the show and goes through each season and contestant. Great read!

Here’s the remarkable trailer for the new season. Enjoy!

“Golden Girls” Responsible For Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs”

During an interview on Jimmy Fallon’s show (see below), Quentin Tarantino attributed his appearance on “The Golden Girls” as providing him with funds that helped him develop “Reservoir Dogs”. With Tarantino’s oddball and remarkable career, this makes perfect sense. For those familiar with “The Golden Girls”, you will know that Quentin appeared on the show before he was famous, while he was a movie-obsessed aspiring filmmaker, acting as an Elvis impersonator, in a line-up of similarly-dressed impersonators gathered for Sophia’s

John Hughes’ “Vacation” Hitting Broadway, Too?

I guess anything’s game to be turned into a musical nowadays. Thus, today’s film turned into improbable musical is National Lampoon’s “Vacation”. Yes, the John Hughes-created Chevy Chase-starrer that gave us the immortal image of a dead lady tied to the roof of a station wagon is now going to be peppered with songs and dancing. Really? It is happening, though. It will premiere this fall at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre, also the launching pad for other out-of-town tryouts such

Fran Descher’s “The Nanny” Hitting Broadway? With songs by Rachel Bloom!

In a rather bizarre development, a Broadway musical version of “The Nanny” (you know, you know, Fran Descher’s starrer about the flashy nanny from Flushing, Queens who eventually married her employer, the Broadway impresario, Maxwell Sheffield) is coming whether we want it or not. I loved “The Nanny” but not sure it’s a natural for the stage. Well, in a way it’s a twisted version of “The Sound of Music”, so maybe. The most promising aspect of the venture is
