I would think the patent alone is worth a few grand

45% was a joke....

You could tell Richard was impressed when he kept going on about Australia, just knew the deal would be clinched by that..

I've only just got into this show, and have enjoyed it so far.. But one thing is bugging me. Is the format always the same in that the 'jokers' get sifted through for 45 mins, and then the final 15 mins is devoted to a serious player who is offered the money?..

I'd rather see a 50/50 split between the fun and serious offers, and maybe juggle them around a bit more.

Good show though - That last guy deserved the deal.

I'm pretty certain the first series was a bit more mixed, i definitely remember at least 2 - 3 people in a few episodes getting money.

There's a "what they say..." section, surprisingly with no comments from the dragons!

I find this really annoying too as it makes the show far too predictable. They could at least make it so some weeks the one they invest in is shown in the middle and sometimes first rather than always having it at the end.

I hate the way the presenter always says "remember, they've got to get all the money" etc... before the one who gets an offer every time.

A Man Overboard Sonar GPS Prototype type think (good product), 30% of Business for £100,000, Richard Farleigh.

I agree with previous comments, they need to mix up the format a bit as you the one's who fail are funny but it would be better to be surprised if they are offered anything rather than know what's coming until the end person.

Id like to see the whole days worth. Lets see all the nutjobs that appear and hear what the dragons have to say.

Surely some 2nd rate sat channel can buy the offcuts from BBC and put on a daily show

im gonna invent see thru gloves, so u just wear a pair of hand mittens underneath to match your clothes

I'm sure I remember the first series, when it was a fairly unknown show and a new concept, spent a lot longer on "nutjobs", whereas now they just skip over all but one or two really misguided nutjobs. I much preferred the S1 format.
