  • Welcome to Carlo's Bakery!

    This reality-series follows the adventures and misadventures of Buddy Valastro, the greatest baker of Hoboken, and certainly one of the greatest bakers in the US. Buddy's cakes are masterpieces and he makes sure that the customer is always right, even if he has sometimes to yell at his employees and get nervous about it.



    But in the end, his family is the most important, and he's always there to prove that he is a wonderful husband, a terrific father and one Hell of a boss, Cake Boss that is. I give this one a 10.moreless
  • Yelling at your employees (and family!) makes for great TV! (that's extreme sarcasm!)

    The trend for shows, these days, is violence and faux-reality, as witnessed by the ultra-violent mixed martial arts battles (hey, who doesn't love the idea of two men lying on a mat with both hugging each other while one pummels the other to a bloody mess, while the other tries to be "man" enough not to cry while being turned into tenderized meat?) and the scripted-but-don't-tell-anyone shows, such as . . . well, ALL of them!



    And then, there are shows which bizarrely combine the two, such as "Cake Boss" on The Learning Channel, which is a blatant rip-off of "Ace of Cakes" on Food Network. I can't imagine what can be "learned" from a jerk who yells at his employees, and, astonishingly, even his customers, except, possibly, that people have become so numb at seeing abuse, if not being abused, either physically or mentally, that one cannot take their eyes off of this train wreck. However, as someone who cannot tolerate such, even if it's scripted or made solely for the benefit of the camera, much less that it is an evil clone of "Ace of Cakes", I will not watch this any more (my total viewing time was about 20 minutes over the course of 3 shows; I kept hoping that the tirades were one-time events). As an aside, I'm wondering how the network executives discussed this concept: "Hey, I got a GREAT idea! Let's copy an existing show which gets good ratings, but find somebody from a parallel and evil universe!" Very "Star Trek", but not good TV, at least not for us who don't like watching faux-wrestling!moreless
  • I like it

    9.5
    I like this show.I like buddy, adn i like all of the extreme cakes they create. I mean i watch all these other cake shows, and they're okay, but somthing on there cake is messed up somwhere or dosnt look as nice, but on buddys cakes were everything looks perfect. There is also some drama but not a overload of it because its a family bussiness. Its ggod to have some extra parts adn stuff that focus on tradition adn the family and there culture. The show is mainly based on caakes but it also as the little added somthing to make it special.moreless
