Dragon's Den

Recommended Posts

Watched it last night, can't seem to find the other thread about it. That Duncan Bannatyne is a top shelf shit pusher for certain. It's good to see them torn apart bit by bit for their shit ideas though, then still not admit they've failed miserably.

 

All end in tears if you ask me :D

there is something of the darkness about those people.

 

I know they're only being honest and pragmatic, but I swear I see a twinkle in their eyes when someone has a truly shocking idea.

Their well named mind. That programme has gave them a licence to rip people's ideas off big time, scheming bastards, you can see the £ signs in their eyes when anyone comes on with anything decent.

 

Take your fucking eyes out as soon as look at you, especially the fat posh cunt on the end, and the Greek, Ronsealed, Paul McKenna look 'a' like isn't much better.

 

Just as well he hasn't got McKenna's powers. :D

I caught it last week, some shite idea's and tehn a belta one to finish the show. A bloke had an idea to provide a wireless internet connection at all the marina's around the UK. The so-called experts were creaming themselves, thefemale expert practcally had her fingers down her knickers flicking her bean!

 

Anyway 2 experts put there money together and wanted 40% of his business for 150k, she then offered the same monet for 38% of the business, he made the wise choice of going with the 2 blokes who he managedt o negotiate a deal to get 1% back from each should he reach his intended target for subscribers in the first year. Bet it turns into a multi-million business once it goes global.

 

Now i've typed this all out i'm alsmost certain i've posted this in another thread on the same subject, oh well it's works time and money i'm wasting not mine!

The Dragons all want to be Simon Cowell now. More interested in being funny ("Why would I want to look at my shit?" ) than make a good deal. That water saving device was brilliant (even if most bogs come with half and full flush now anyway), the bloke that made it was a cunt.

Theres a panel of 5 millionaires with a £100,000 each up for grabs, investment wise if a member of the public comes up with a new invention/idea. Basically the rich getting richer and the poor getting ripped off.

Some of the idea's though are pure shite, like the wife the other week who'd ordered over 100,000 pairs of knickers with various names printed on them from a factory in India at 60p a pair and planned to sell them for £3.99 a pair, only problem was if the millionaire's didn't give her what she wanted then she was in a pickle with the Indians, predictably the water works soon started as the horrible reality of the situation dawned on the stupid bint! Women and business don't mix!

Understatement tbh. It was a good idea but i don't think that system could handle one of my rotten logs on a Monday morning, i some times have to get a bucket of water, murder if your at work, in the lasses toilets

Is there a new series or is it the first one repeated?

 

You get some real numpts on there.

 

Girl with very stupid idea: "My forecast is for £40k profit within 3 years"

One of the bastards: "Is that gross or net profit"

Girl: "Erm....gross. No, net. Erm......I'm not sure"

Bannatyne: "You don't know the difference? Jesus, you are wasting your time".

Great TV, especially the posh lass who wanted to start up some sort of elite shopping guide internet subscription only to find they all thought it was a load of shite. 'I could find all of that on Google, within the hour, and it'll cost me nothing.'

I haven't seen the new series but have watched the previous ones and its always enetertaining. Though for this new series it looks like they've lost 3 of the original dragons and replaced them.

 

You do get soem people on it who really do deserve the dragons ripping them to bits and kicking them out on their arses!

lol, seeing as this is almost a year old, I think it's understandable... anyway

 

MERGE!

 

Like this programme... used to talk about it a lot where I used to work. Must say agree about them having a dark side. That younhish one in particular! The American one too, but that is typical ruthlessness you'd expect from a yank.

On a related note, I'm meeting one of the winners of the last series tomorrow!

Had to like the egg bloke, to demonstrate his invention he forgets to put the egg in first time, and cocks it up the next two times and still gets two dragons to invest in it!

 

But to be fair you can see if it works it could be a potential big seller and two of the dragons definitely thought so.

Quality viewing again last night, couldn't help but piss myself when one of the dragons said "eggcellent" after the deal was done with the useless egg guy! :blush:

 

"It does work"

"Well it hasn't worked"

"Yes but it does work I promise you, I've got a kitchen full of eggs!"

"Well show me it works"

"Er I've ran out of eggs now"

 

Brilliant.

Aye the egg bloke was a proper mad inventor. It's a good idea though, and I think they're right that it'll sell a lot - they'll love shit like that in America.

 

At first I was sitting looking at these people - the egg bloke and the Novaflow bloke - and thinking they were idiots for mulling over the investments (especially the Novaflow bloke who turned it down), but I guess if you really believe in the product and think it'll make you millions, you don't want to be giving up 40% of those millions for £75k or whatever. However the Novaflow bloke was taking the piss - £150k for 10% of his company. All he had was a patented idea for which he has to give up 4% of the retail price to the university, and he's trying to claim it's worth £1.5m!? Idiot.

 

The female dragon is a wisened old bitch btw.

 

Mind, you can see watching the dragons how they've got where they are. All pretty charismatic, confident people (with the exception of the woman) and really on the ball with their thinking when they have the ideas presented to them.

 

The wifey with the bog seats though. :blush:
