Quotes

Himself - Dragon: When you walk into the bank and ask the bank manager for a loan, and he says "No", all your friends and family will tell you "The bank manager's wrong", when you go into an investor and he says "No", all your friends and family, said "The investor is wrong". You got a fantastic idea, but one day you have to wake up to the reality, and understand... that your friends and family are wrong, and you're wrong, because it is not gonna sell.

Very interesting programme to watch
16 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of course it is flawed, some of the business propositions are ludicrous, and there have been times when the narration has become extremely annoying. Still, Dragon's Den is very interesting to watch. I like the fact that the dragons are straight talking and know what they're talking about, and as a presenter, Evan Davis does have a certain likability about him when he is not annoying that is. Over the years, we have been treated to a number of great inventions, and some hilariously ludicrous ones too. It is also very interesting learning more about how a business is run and all that.

All in all, a perfectly watchable reality show, of course with flaws, but very interesting. 8/10 Bethany Cox
