    You could just see him squirming and racking his brains on how to get back into the game while thinking 'that's another Levi Roots I've let go'. Priceless!!

    Didn't knew Boots did Viagra as well? Or do you just use it for your diapers?

    I'm an old tart when it comes to male -grooming products. Suprisingly enough my doc is happy to give me an almost endless supply of Viagra. I've been giving them all away. yet to find anyone to test one out on. And those that i'd like to ain't available - either that or they remind me "i'm old enough to be their DAD"

    Still lets stick to the subject at hand - Dragons Den- (and the like)We don't want to take this thread off subject when theres still loads of the series to go

    Your right sir, lets keep this thread on topic.

    Can't wait till Today's episode is available as a torrent....BBC and some of the other UK channels are really losing money by not having their websites available abroad.

    I wouldn't get too excited. Like watching paint dry.

    It's core values has gone.

    I'm going to disagree - it is meant to be 'popular' entertainment. I don't think for one moment it is trying to portray itself as a serious business programme. It's about common people having ideas and the 'easy mistakes that can befall anyone without a 'thought-through' business plan.

    Lets be fair even the commentators remarks is added post-edit, The video editing is of a quality rarely seen - hence all the good cuts to the dragons facial expressions between and during presentations. (when a look says a thousand words)

    The camera set-up alone must be immense. The feel-good factor of the winners and losers in this programme is what it is about - no different to any other "Talent-show" on TV. But with at least a business awareness angle for those of us that 'may' otherwise enjoy a programme like X-factor if it also had genuine benifit to several of it's participants each week - rather than just building on hopes

    Lets not forget The Dragons are themselves set-up to be as much the fall-guys as the participants pitching.

    BBC intro for tomorrows show 30th sept

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Dragons' competitive natures are put to the test when the Den is turned into a game show set, as a former chat show host seeks investment for her television quiz idea. Although she has experience in this area, will the Dragons think the price is right?

    A 22-year-old student from Bolton surprises the Dragons with his unbridled enthusiasm for the UK's car parking industry, and a father and son from Yorkshire cause consternation among the multimillionaire investors with their firm, no-nonsense negotiating style.

    Also pitching for investment in the Den are a samba band, flowering tea and a man washing his hair with the help of a fully working shower

    I might apply with socked for next season. I think its wacky enough to get on. Plus even if it didn't gain any funding (do we even need funding?) the traffic, brand awareness and sales that you would gain just from being on the show would be great.
