I really enjoyed the whole season, and was sad that it got cut too short by the sudden death of Billy Mays. Unlike the other comment, I'm not going to say anything bad about the dead, and even if he was still alive, I wouldn't say anything bad.

After watching the first episode you know that this isn't about the Pitchmen at all. It's more about the inventor's dreams trying to be made into reality. All the inventors on this show, invested years and more money I can even imagine, on some product to make our everyday lives easier. I loved the series, and hope somehow it can continue.
