Another good watch now spoiled
31 October 2012 | by gndoumit-517-816376See all my reviews

OK I admit...I was a Cake Boss fan....once. I read the other less than stellar reviews and I have to admit they are right. I used to watch this show faithfully. The first couple seasons I sat through the fake drama, the fake acting, the "its all about Buddy" story lines, the whining voice narratives, everybody playing up their "Italian-ness", Buddy and his crew of nubile young female decorators who hover like baby birds with their mouths open for every job Buddy gives them, the young bucks and their passive reactions at Buddy's sometimes demeaning practical jokes and his overall Alpha gorilla chest thumping in the Kitchen. After all, what's not too love about a small Italian bakery run by a big Italian family, right? I'm old enough to remember the good old days...when ethnic neighborhoods were ethnic and authentic neighborhoods. People were hard working humble folk that simply enjoyed being in the neighborhood and in the moment. Now we have star power! Now we have the Italian sisters and their obvious $250 haircut and color jobs..cameo shots of their huge houses...and remarkably all from what is being touted as an unassuming little corner Italian bakery. Yeah....OK. Ah...but now Buddy is thinking..."Lets go to Italy on The Learning Channel's dime so Buddy can wow them in the old country" and "Let's get a warehouse--we're talking assembly line-mass production baby!" The show has taken a tawdry turn to say the least. It's no longer a glimpse into the life of a small Italian Bakery in Hoboken and the colorful family that runs it. Its about people believing in the actual roles they created for themselves and are marketing to an ignorant public starving for the good old days. How people continue to watch the show is way beyond me. Its just sad...
