Watched it (off DVR) tonight and were delighted. Yes, yes, it lives up to expectations. As good as the prior seasons, albeit just based on this very first episode. Gripping subject — the French Revolution across the Channel. We were captivated.

That none of the cast get any older, though about 9-years have passed, since we first met her, is a bit disconcerting, but it is nice to have all the familiar faces about.

Yes, definitely recommended. Try and catch it. PBS will be showing Episode 1 all week.

Saw the trailer for Season 3 on PBS the other day and it made our day. Loved Seasons 1 & 2. Don’t think we realized that there was going to be a Season 3. Sure glad there is.

Looking back I see that Season 2 premiered in January 2018. So, Season 3 is coming exactly a year later. So, that must have been the plan all along.

Sure pleased. Wanted to share with you. Now you know. I will remind you, closer to the start.

“Great British Bake Off” (Show) Starting On PBS, Starting Friday, July 1, 2016 — Is It Season 3 or Season 6?

by Anura Guruge

I just [i.e., Thursday, June 30, 2016] had an e-mail from NHPTV.org intimating that the Great British Baking Show starting Friday, July 1, 2016 is NEW and is “Season 3” (a.k.a. “Series 3“).

Though Season 3 was shown on BBC (U.K.) in 2012 I think it would, in theory, be NEW to the U.S. since I am not sure whether PBS/NHPTV ever showed it.

But then it gets confusing. The First Episode is “Cake” and the description — shown below — talks about “Madeira Cake” and “Frosted Walnut Cake“. That was ‘Cake’ from 2015 “Season 6” — not “Season 3”.

“Season 3” cakes were “Upside Down Cake” and “Rum Babas“!

So what will it be: Season 3 or Season/Series 6?


Here is the PBS program description for the July 1, 2016 show.

Australian “A Place To Call Home”, As Good As “Downton Abbey”, Season 3 …

Click to access YouTube video. NEW ENDING for Season 2 so as to make Season 3 viable.


Yesterday evening during our ‘family TV hour’ I was scrolling through (British TV) Acorn, through our Roku 3, to see what new shows they had. On a whim, albeit with no great expectations, I said “lets check ‘A Place To Call Home’ to see if they have a Season 3”. Serendipity! There was a Season 3. We couldn’t believe it. I checked to see that they had not accidently relabeled Season 2 as Season 3. They had not. We were delighted. Especially the kids.

As I raved about here we think ‘A Place To Call Home’ is nearly as good as ‘Downton Abbey‘ (though the setting is not as grandiose) — and that is saying something because we are all “Downton” devotees.

We had NO idea that ABC (and the ‘A’ there stands for ‘Australian’ as opposed to ‘American’) had CANCELLED the show halfway through Season 2! That had to have been crazy. It is a good show. Now they have resurrected it and I am delighted that common sense prevailed. So they had to do a new ending for Season 2 so as to provide a more compelling ‘runway’ into Season 3. That was kind of weird. But we watched the new ending last night. Wow. Dramatic. We will start watching Season 3 tonight. 40 minute episodes. So Teischan insists that we can squeeze in 2 each night.

I just discovered that it is also available on YouTube. So you should be all set. Do yourself a HUGE favor and watch it. You WILL thank me for that advice.
