    When the Friday derailment starts on Tuesday, it’s time for a change.

    Somewhere
    There is a Wednesday thread. Although, I guess this works much better than a thread for every day of the week.

    Anyone ever watch The Great British Baking Show? I don’t even care about baking or even cooking for that matter. But watching people without personality disorders compete with each other to make the most amazing foods I’ve ever seen all while saying words like “bits” and “buttercream” is just pure bliss.

    It’s on Netflix for anyone who wants to have their world rocked.

    Edit: After typing this post I’ve now decided to drop everything and drive to the store to purchase a cake or pie that may ultimately end up with bits of it on the floor mats of my rav4.

    2nd Edit: Oh god. This was a terrible idea. I just want to nap. Don’t ever watch the show.

    It's so weird to see a "competition" where they sometimes decide everyone did a good job and no one needs to leave.

    Fellow fan here. And general lover of British TV.

    Yeah, that sounds more like the Great Canadian Baking Show if you ask me.

    Oh! What a great thread...and I'm feeling like some non-committal chit-chat, too!

    I like that Great British Baking Show, too. (I could go for some Devonshire cream on a tart, right now, in fact. I was born in England, and that show makes me nostalgic for a culture I know remotely.) I'm trying to get into Stranger Things but wondering if I should see what Suits is all about. I've been hooked on C-SPAN...and that's soooooooo boring.:bullcrap:

    Hope everyone had a good summer, halloween, thanksgiving, fall deadlines....and gearing up for those winter/January deadlines.

    Happy Dec. 1st! :wideyed:

    Stranger things is fantastic! I grew up in he 80s which I think adds a layer of appreciation as you’re watching it.

    Season 2 was definitely good. They went in some new directions with it - I liked Season 1 better, but still very much enjoyed Season 2. Winona Ryder was more tolerable this time around.

    Any thoughts on Atypical? Several students have recommended it; last year they suggested 13 Reasons and I actually enjoyed it.

    Atypical is definitely worth the watch.

    13 reasons has widely been criticized for placing the locus of control on others (i.e., I wouldn’t have killed myself if everyone else just did what I wanted.). Sdn psychiatry has a decent discussion about it.

    Atypical is pretty good.

    I haven’t seen Atypical but some of my suicidal clients watched 13 reasons and their risk went up as a result. I didn’t watch it but not a fan because of the reasons in the previous post.
