When to watch The Great British Baking Show

If you love reality show cooking competitions, then this is a special time of the year. That’s because the arrival of fall means the return of The Great British Baking Show, and we’re going to tell you when and where you can watch it!

The Great British Baking Show is actually better known internationally as The Great British Bake Off. It turns out that Bake Off is copyrighted in the U.S. by Pillsbury, hence the name change over here. Fans in America can stream the series on Netflix, and it has consistently been one of the best British TV shows on the platform.

There’s a simple premise behind the ongoing popularity of this show. Each season, amateur bakers go head-to-head in order to show off their skills and demonstrate their culinary mastery to celebrity judges. The Great British Bake Off premiered in 2010, and it is about to enter its 14th season later this month. This season, Alison Hammond is taking over from Matt Lucas as the new co-host with Noel Fielding. And of course, there’s a brand new set of bakers who are ready to prove themselves to the world.

Now, it’s time to answer the burning question of when you can watch The Great British Baking Show. And if you know your way around the kitchen, you may want to recreate some of this season’s dishes for yourself.

When can we watch new episodes of The Great British Baking Show?

How many episodes will there be this season?

It’s a 10-week competition, so there will be the same number of episodes released weekly. In the U.K., the finale will arrive on November 28. And assuming that Netflix maintains a weekly schedule of its own, then the season finale will have its streaming premiere on December 1.

Beyond that, it may be another year before a full season of The Great British Baking Show arrives. But the previous seasons remain on Netflix for your streaming enjoyment.

Watch The Great British Baking Show on Netflix. New episodes begin streaming on September 29.

35 years later, Tim Burton’s Batman still feels like a breath of fresh air

It's hard to remember a time now when superhero movies weren't a constant fixture of American life. The rise of Marvel Studios and cinematic universe-style storytelling has resulted in well over a decade's worth of constant comic book movies and TV shows. Before game-changing filmmakers like Christopher Nolan and Sam Raimi brought their unique voices to the superhero genre in the mid-2000s, though, comic book movies weren't nearly as frequent or omnipresent in Hollywood as they are now.

In 1989, for instance, they were still few and far between. Most of the superhero films that had been released before that year were, with a few exceptions, viewed as either cheesy, cheap, or disposable. None of them — not even Richard Donner's Superman — were seen as an avenue for meaningful artistic cinematic expression. But that all began to change when Tim Burton's Batman hit theaters 35 years ago this week.
