Rejoice all ye bakers and lovers of kinder, gentler competition reality shows. The Great British Bake-Off, known to Netflix audiences as The Great British Baking Show, is back for its eighth season. It will premier on Netflix, September 25th.

The subversive value of this show — which makes it essential viewing in this cursed age — is underrated. As my husband puts it, it's about "people being decent to each other."
