    Anyone watch it, thoughts?

    Could have been much better but good for you big domain owners when he mentioned buying furniture for £600k to sit on.

    I'm just watching it now, thanks @Whois-Search

    It's already started off badly, "there are also other people out there known as domain dealers"

    Domain dealers psh

    Are any of the people who took part members here?

    It's programming designed for peasants so will be dumbed down. I won't be watching and have already been given a rundown by someone. The furniture.co.uk bloke doesn't post here AFAIK but he's called "betthelot" on NamePros. Might be good PR for him and other self promotion types. No benefit for most others. Cue lots of idiotic new members joining this forum and posting all sorts of diatribe. Steve Admin should win from that one if he can convert some to paying. If none do join because of the programme, I'm not sure what that says. :)

    Id guess younger men would be the most likely to be interested in domains, I doubt many younger men watch the one show.

    I think you'd be surprised what many with nothing better to do leave on as background noise while having their takeaways on a Friday night (gosh I must sound like a snob!) ;-)

    There are plenty of middle aged and older men (and a few women) that would turn a hand to domain name investing if they were given a sniff of it. Already some of those on here already. You know who you are! ;-)

    Not nearly as bad as I feared it would be when I first heard about the project a few months ago. They steered well clear of "cybersquatting" which is the slant the mainstream media usually seem to go for. If the "Mo" is who I think it is, it also explains why I hit a brick wall trying to secure a geo domain...

    Doesn't seem like the show inspired any new potential domain dealers to join us :(
