TV Series Review

Food isn’t always pretty. Sometimes it comes out of the oven looking a little … strange. A melted donut, a wonky cupcake, a generic cookie. But just because something is different doesn’t mean it’s bad.

Enter Bread Barber. As the best slice of bread in town, Master Bread Barber is up for any challenge. He can sprinkle any cupcake, frost any cookie and glaze any donut not just back to perfection, but better than it was before.

That’s true talent. And though there may be some challenging tasks, there’s no delicacy that Bread Barber can’t turn into a delight.

Not All Treats Are Baked Equal

Bread Barber is the latest in TV-Y entertainment on Netflix, with each episode clocking in at 12 minutes each.

Although aimed at kids, this show doesn’t have much substance to offer them. Yes, kindness and including friends is part of the theme here. And Bread Barber never turns down customers, no matter how difficult they may be.

But unwanted pastries are made fun of. They also get angry, and call people “stale” often. The word “stupid” is heard a few times and there are even a few questionable scenes where Bread Barber has to meditate to calm himself.

It’s not that there are serious baking issues here; it’s just that the ingredients that make up this show aren’t necessarily mentally nutritious.

Episode Reviews

August 15, 2020: “Best Cupcake”

A deformed cupcake heads to Bread Barber to get a makeover.

“Perfect” cupcakes make fun of a less-than-perfect pastry with a large head. A few mean cupcake children throw peanuts at the disformed cupcake. Bread Barber and others get visibly angry and frustrated.

The words “stupid” and “stale” are tossed out once each as insults.
