One of my favorite newly discovered shows is this British baking competition that is enormous in the U.K. It's fun, informative, and it lead me to the wonderful duo of Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. I wish the American one wasn't so bad, but sometimes British just is better. Besides the metric measurements and the strange names (biscuits for cookies, and what the heck is suet pudding?) this show translates perfectly to an American baker.
Unfortunately all I can find is the fourth season on Youtube.
