Great Show That's Losing Its Spark
27 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

When I first started watching Dragon's Den, I was intrigued by all the new ideas and businesses that were being invented in my native country. It's definitely cool to see such brilliant minds at work in Canada.

There have been numerous seasons so far, and the Dragons come and go, usually staying for a couple seasons, while some veteran Dragons have stayed there for almost the entire series (like Jim Treliving and Arlene Dickinson). I find that switching up the Dragons is a good idea, because it gives a sense that Canada has many successful entrepreneurs, and you get to meet new people as well.

However, what I like most about this show is the entrepreneurs and their pitches. Some are just horrible, and some are just brilliant. It's shocking how sometimes, the simplest ideas are the best ones, and it's great to see how more and more ideas come out each season.

Unfortunately, there is one thing that I am not enjoying about the show. The Dragons can sometimes be excessively rude and inappropriate, and it seems like the longer a Dragon has stayed inside the Den, the more comfortable they are with this behaviour. This is national television, and I think that if an idea is terrible, you still shouldn't chew out the entrepreneur in front of the nation like that. It's a matter of respect and dignity.

Anyway, I still like the show, and I watch it for the budding entrepreneurs, not the Dragons anymore.
