Advertisements So, fans of GBBO on Netflix might not have noticed that a new episode popped up last Friday. Last season and this one, the makers of the show are releasing each episode individually to Netflix, rather than making fans wait until the entire season/series is done before getting an opportunity to watch. It's nice because you can't get spoiled over information, but you have to wait every week like a regular OTA show. That being said - on to the seasonal discussion Putting the entire series into a bubble, rather than the weekly coming and going is interesting. The foundation of the show usually allows competitors to practice the week before. Instead they are staying together for a shorter period of time in order to minimize risk of Covid. They are there for 7 weeks, which makes me think that they do get a couple of days practice prior to the next "weekend" of competition. It's typically 10 episodes, which would make me think that they would quarantine for 5 weeks while allowing cleanup, staging, and rest periods. Instead, they are quarantining for 7 weeks, which gives a couple of days practice for each episode. Who can leave their jobs for 7 weeks so that they can film a tv show? Is it big enough in Britain that no one would really argue? Or did they choose people specifically who could leave their jobs for 7 weeks. There is always at least one young person, who is usually a college student, so I would hope that he would still be able to do his schoolwork online, but maybe it was filmed in the summer break (or he took the term off). That being said, I haven't learned their names yet and probably won't until further into the season, as repetition is required for me to learn them. I did like the fact that the young guy really killed it. He's such a cutie.
