  • Dragons Den

    Love this programme well any business related programme . Just makes me laugh at the crazy ideas people have and also how rude they are sometimes to possible investors. Anyone else watching this or it just me ?

    I saw some of it tonight...that thing for picking up dog shit was so OTT. Who is so bothered about bending over? And that mini jet-ski or something that cost 30,000! :-?

      My favourite one on there was the plastic adjustable device for putting under the wobbly leg of a table

      "But that's what beermats are for!"

      "But just think, if you were out with a girl for a meal, and the table was wobbly, and you got that out and put it under one leg of it and stopped it wobbling, how much better would that be?"

      "If you were out with a girl for a meal and you got that out of your pocket, she'd think you were incredibly sad!"

        They've rejected quite a few ideas they lauged over. I actully thought were quite good ideas.

          Yeah repeats of series 3 (I think) are now showing on DAVE.

          I love this program and how Duncan is always "out" on everything.

          New series started last week - I don't really like the new dragon - James Khan - he's a bit boring. :-?

            One of the ideas they poo-pooed, and that wasn't even shown in full, was a guy wanting to start a Tuk Tuk service in London. They thought it was crazy and saw no market for it...I'd have liked to see the guy's presentation as it's really a very simple idea, and has been a huge success in 5 Dutch towns and cities since it was introduced earlier this year...

              Those pop pants made me laugh, it was really strange and unusual for a product.

              Same as the wheelie bin spray, why would anyone really care if their rubbish smelt bad?

              I'm undecided on the Shower holder, a possible side product but I couldn't quite believe her enthusiasm over it.

                  Now I often find myself agreeing them over the stupidly of some ideas. E.g., The shower head holder tonight BUT! Someone pitched something I really really wished did exist tonight (although we only got the highlights) the traditional British food 'takeaway'. I've always wished you could phone for Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding or Cottage Pie in the same way you can ring for a Pizza or Indian.

                  I'd certainly be a customer but then again granted I can see that it might not be hugely profitable. It would be a market for oddballs (like me) and the over 60's.

                    Ahh two of Southport's finest... We actually got a flyer about that invention through our door.

                    Wheely bins have only arrived in the last month to this neck of the woods, causing local outrage.

                              I'm going off this - the dragons know that they can be as rude as they like because it's probably the only chance most people will get to receive that sort of investment. I don't think the shower holder thing was necessarily that bad an idea, yet they ripped it out of her just to make themselves look better. If only they'd spent less time polishing their egos, they would have seen that there is virtually nothing like this out there... I spent ages last week looking for a shower bracket as ours snapped and fell off - I would have bought this if I'd seen it.

                                Aye, they are an arrogant lot...but I don't think they're ever rude for the sake of it.

                                Who's your least-favourite Dragon? I'd have to pick Peter Jones...

                                  The dragon's are not there to hand out free money it's not a handout scheme. They are pitched ideas and if they think they can make money out of the product than they will take that chance. If it's just a novel idea that's not going to make any money than they are the experts and are just plane honest about it, and a portable shower head holder is a stupid idea. A small demand item? Yes but a huge idea that will fly off the shelves that loads of people will want? No so why would they want to throw money away.

                                    It was funny in the last show when the "colourist" accused Deborah Meaden of having her hair dyed, when it seems that Peter Jones is the one with a new tint on top!!!

                                      Yeah! We had to put bin bags out every week!

                                      I felt sorry for the woman with the Shuc - they didn't have to be that rude to her really - it wasn't a bad idea compared to most!

                                      I think my least favourite Dragon would have to be Debra

                                            You know I'm going to buy and read that Goblin book when I'm paid next. Sounds interesting, but my advice to her would be to stop daydreaming and put all your energy into getting a proper publisher for the book and if it is any good. Well another women discovered that film companies will be coming to you to buy the movie rights.
