Louisa Mellor Sep 13, 2017

Den of Geek has narrowed down our favourite series 1-4 tasks from hugely funny Dave series Taskmaster

Warning: if you’re new to Taskmaster, catch up on Dave before reading this. We’d hate to spoil any surprises.

Commence rummaging for your most unusual/impressive/heaviest item, because Taskmaster is back. Starting tonight on Dave is a new eight-episode run of the challenge-based comedy series, this time testing the mettle of Sir Bob Mortimer, Sally Phillips, Nish Kumar, Aisling Bea and Mark Watson. This one’s coconut-themed, apparently. (Previous series have been vaguely themed around eggs, potatoes, rubber ducks and… whimsy?)

To celebrate its return, we’ve selected some of the previous series highlights. Below then, enjoy reminiscing about an amount of tasks that would, balanced atop one another, »

Taskmaster: Alex Horne on series 5, casting, remakes, the future

Louisa Mellor Sep 13, 2017

Taskmaster returns for a fifth series tonight on Dave, featuring Bob Mortimer, Sally Phillips, Nish Kumar, Aisling Bea and Mark Watson...

“I think I could probably fit all that lot in my trousers,” says Tim Key gesturing at the crowded kitchen worktop of a London flat in this 2008 YouTube video. He then tests the hypothesis, starting with a loaf of bread, a bunch of bananas and a silver espresso maker. Into the trouser leg they go, followed by a parade of unlikely items - a cheese grater, a bottle of orange squash, an unwieldy marble bowl. Every so often, a hand reaches out from the camera to assist. It belongs to comedian Alex Horne, seen intermittently in the back of shot drinking a coffee and checking his watch.

Paul Hollywood pictured wearing fancy-dress Nazi uniform

Great British Bake Off presenter apologises for 2003 image, which he says was taken on way to ‘Allo ‘Allo! themed party

Pictures have emerged of the Great British Bake Off presenter Paul Hollywood dressed in a Nazi uniform, complete with swastika and iron cross, as he prepared to attend a fancy dress party in 2003.

The former baker who presents the popular show on Channel 4 with Prue Leith, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig said on Sunday that he was “absolutely devastated” to have caused offence by wearing the uniform.

Is Bake Off’s Steven too good to be true?

6 September 2017 5:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The two-time star baker is clearly the best on this year’s show – so angry viewers are accusing him of being a secret pro. From X Factor to Strictly, fans never seem to trust the most talented ones

One of the biggest shocks of this new The Great British Bake Off series – apart from the sensory pandemonium that comes from hearing Noel Fielding sincerely describing biscuits – is Steven Carter-Bailey. If you have been watching, you will know that Steven has won the coveted Star Baker title two weeks out of two, first for his cake that looked like bread and then for his biscuit that you could play chess on.

Inevitably, the primary response to this has been outrage. Steven’s Instagram has been uncovered, and it shows – gasp – that he is actually really good at baking cakes. Angry viewers have even suggested, although in no way proven, that »

Channel 4’s ‘Bake Off’ Rises to the Occasion With 30% of U.K. Audience

30 August 2017 2:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Great British Bake Off” put in a strong opening performance in its new home, U.K. broadcaster Channel 4, despite a notable drop in viewing figures from the launch of its final BBC season last year. Overnight figures show that the inaugural episode of the new-look season, which aired at 8 p.m. Tuesday, drew an average of 6.5 million viewers, a 30.4% audience share in its time slot. Peak viewing reached 7.7 million with a 34.6% share.

While nearly 4 million fewer viewers tuned in, on average, compared to last year’s opening episode on the BBC (10.4 million), the result gave underdog Channel 4 its biggest overnight figures since the opening ceremony of the London Paralympic Games in August 2012 and was 3 million higher than its previous biggest draw of 2017, the documentary “Diana: In Her Own Words,” which drew an average of 3.5 million and a peak of 4.1 million viewers.

Was it a showstopper or a soggy-bottomed mess? As the hit baking show lands in its new home on Channel 4, send us your reviews and we’ll publish the best

After much excitement, chatter and controversy, the Great British Bake Off is finally back on our screens – in its new home on Channel 4.

Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig replace Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins as presenters, and Prue Leith steps into the shoes of the legendary Mary Berry as judge. In fact the only familiar face is Paul Hollywood, who continues as a judge.

The Great British Bake Off 2017, episode one – as it happened

29 August 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Did Bake Off burn its bottom with the move to Channel 4, or did it rise like a phoenix?

9.22pm BST

So what do we think? It’s long, and adverts are...wearing. But Sandi and Noel could work well if they relax, and the bakers themselves impressed. There are a few artists in there. I’d say that last round alone warranted another week’s watching.

I also imagine GeneralMittens is bang on the money with what happens next, but I can’t print that up here. Shame on you. Er, General.

9.14pm BST

Is it dark because they make them stay in the grounds until they cry on camera?

Next week is biscuits. I do want to see if Sandi and Noel relax, plus I’m contractually obliged. But I’d love to see you all again!

9.12pm BST

A worthy win for Steven. And Peter is sent home. »

Great British Bake Off review – right where I want to be when the bombs start falling

29 August 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Bake Off has survived the move from BBC oven to Channel 4 table, and it’s still showcasing the best of humanity. The world is on fire: this is what we all need

Praise the Lord and pass the croquembouche – the Great British Bake Off, a teetering edifice of delicious tiny morsels itself, held together by the sweet bonds of love, nostalgia and charm, has survived the move from BBC oven to Channel 4 table.

It was clear from this opening episode that enough people had held enough nerve to resist fixing something that was never broken. The tent is up, the bunting is out and the presenters, apart from Paul Hollywood, are new but not discombobulatingly different. Prue Leith replaces Mary Berry, so we still have our experienced matriarch taking care of business. Sandi Toksvig has Sue Perkins’ wit, sheathed to the same decorous degree, and Noel Fielding has »

The Great British Bake Off: could do with a bit more time in the oven

26 August 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The recipe for the show has barely changed following the move to Channel 4, yet it is missing the sprinkle of chemistry that made it such a hit on the Beeb

Related: Prepare for the best series of Bake Off yet, says judge Paul Hollywood

As Noel Fielding descends on The Great British Bake Off (29 August, 8pm, Channel 4) in a hot-air balloon, dressed as a goth Willy Wonka, a terrible, amusing possibility occurs. Is he about to infect Bake Off – the TV equivalent of comfort food – with the maverick sensibility of The Mighty Boosh’s Vince Noir or The It Crowd’s Richmond? This would represent a gambit of considerable bravery given the huge furore generated by the show’s big-money move from BBC1 to Channel 4.

‘It’s not worth the calories’: why Bake Off’s new catchphrase has always served me well

7 August 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

New judge Prue Leith’s anti-calorie motto has left some with a bad taste in their mouths, but should more of us be heeding her advice?

What joyless, weight-watching partypoopers the new judges of The Great British Bake Off are, the critics jeer. How we will miss the carefree double-entendres from Mel and Sue, Mary Berry’s soggy bottom now a distant memory. Instead we’ve got Noel Fielding saying he hopes to avoid sugar to stay slim, while Prue Leith’s catchphrase has been revealed as: “It’s not worth the calories.”

As much as I would like to join this Bake Off-bashing bandwagon, I have a confession to make: Leith’s catchphrase has been my own for years. And it has served me well.

The Great British Baking Show Season 4 Finale Recap: Who Won?

4 August 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Friday’s royally themed The Great British Baking Show finale was more than just the ending of a season, it was truly the ending of a deliciously flaky era.

As previously reported, the iconic series — the current season of which already aired in its entirety in the United Kingdom — will look quite different from here on out: Only judge Paul Hollywood will travel with the show when it makes its move from the BBC to the UK’s Channel 4 next season. Judge Mary Berry and hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins will not continue with the series; Qi host »

Netflix nabs The Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening to develop the fantasy animated series Disenchantment...

Netflix has given Groening's Disenchantment a 20-episode order, to be released 10 episodes at a time. The series takes place in a medieval kingdom called Dreamland, inhabited by all your favorite Dungeons & Dragons and Warcraft-type concepts such as ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, and even walruses.

Of course, this locale will also have its share of human fools. The main story will center on the young, hard-drinking Princess Bean (Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson), who embarks on a series of (mis)adventures with her personal demon Luci »

The Music Video That Was Baby Driver Before Baby Driver

7 July 2017 1:40 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It’s been one week since Edgar Wright’s heist movie masterpiece Baby Driver (read our five star review here) screeched onto the big screen, offering audiences a fun and, more importantly, unique alternative to the usual Summer blockbusters. It’s success has even seen Sony approach Wright about a potential sequel. But few people know that this movie has been in development since 1994. Proof of that can found in the music video for Mint Royale’s Blue Song that Wright directed way back in 2003. Starring Noel Fielding (as well as Fielding’s Mighty Boosh co-hort Julian Barret and Wright regulars Michael Smiley and Nick Frost) in the role that would eventually go to Ansel Elgort, it adapts the movies opening and showcased what the director had planned for the future hit. The worst thing about it is that it makes me long for a version of the movie with this cast. »

Watch ‘Baby Driver’ Test Run: Edgar Wright Made Music Video 10 Years Ago to Try Out Idea (Video)

3 July 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Can’t wait to see “Baby Driver,” the new Edgar Wright film? Get a feel for the hit action pic by watching the music video for “Mint Royale” by Blue Song. The video is conceptually simple. A getaway driver, played by British comedian Noel Fielding, waits for the bank robbers — played by Julian Barratt, Nick Frost and Michael Smiley — to come back from their heist. He gives them the length of the song to get in and get out. In the meantime he encounters a number of obstacles. A man in a suit walks by and peaks in. A security guard approaches. »
