    It’s like Top Gear with cooking…. 😡 / 😀 (Delete as applicable)

    They have beards. Should have been a clue.

    I thought they were a Reeves and Mortimer act?

    It did have parts that made me want to squirm, mainly when they were moralising about how we need to get back to the old days on manufacturing like when they cast wheels for trains.

    As much as I admire that sentiment, you can never go back to heavy industry in a commercial environment if just about every other country can do it cheaper, or better, or both. The time when we were world leaders in that sort of thing is long gone.

    on a scale of 1 to death-by-crocodile, I rate them about 5, which is to say I can watch a whole programme with them but I’d prefer not to.

    Like most cookery programmes, its only actually an extended advert to sell some over-priced hard backed, glossy covered books, mainly at Christmas, that are compulsory in every middle class’s kitchen, where they sit sadly ignored, and never ever ever get used!

    Don’t start binners, we’ve got loads of those, relatives must think we can’t feed ourselves properly.

    I wish Jamie! Sadly we’ve got shelves heaving under the weight of many grinning Nigella and Jamie’s. 🙁

    I suppose I could indulge our own personal nazi style book burning later

    Ironically, the Hairy flipping Bikers ‘perfect pies’ is one of the few that gets regularly used. As its arrival ushered in the much loved Pie Monday

    I’m not really a cooking person so I’ve not really encountered them much before – but now they’re doing an engineering series so have to watch them.

    Anyone else find them intensely annoying? It’s the fake matey exchanges, the obviously scripted jokey asides, the turning up to work for five minutes and then claiming the glory.

    Grr.

    They gave me food at t in the park, basically anyone who feeds me has my eternal loyalty. And it was very, very good. The tv personas are just a scripted version of what they’re like in person, odd-couple hetero life partners 😉 Though, on TV it’s all really fake and forced which is a shame.

    Sure they’re annoying, but the recipes are quite good.

    I don’t find them even slightly annoying.

    What really grips my shit is that it’s such a blatant rip off of Guy Martin’s series. And he is actually bonkers (mate) unlike their lamentable acting

    I don’t mind them too much, but the over egging of the Geordie accent is a bit silly IMO.

    Went to see them on tour, one of the best shows I’ve ever been to, it was hilarious and entertaining.

    You think that’s overegging a geordie accent? I’d have said it was pretty mild all things considered. I speak to at least a couple of people a week who I just don’t believe I share a language with.

    Well given none of them are Geordies and the accent gives that a way then I’m confused by this.

    “Awwww Duuude!”

    Seriously, not even close with that one!

    This, and Fred’s not with us any more so he’ll not mind.

    There can’t be enough people shouting about these projects if you ask me.

    I can’t believe everyone missed Robson Green’s History of Working Britain? An exhaustively researched, in-depth view into the history of the working classes. It was only the regular adverts for Argos and Subway that reminded you you weren’t watching BBC4
