  • It was hilarious to see Mr. O'Leary get his comeuppance in this show. What a jerk.

    As is usual, I learned a lot about what not to do or say when faced with this sort of presentation. The inventions are always interesting, the people are usually engaging, and I certainly enjoy listening to the sharks themselves. The concept is a most interesting one, and, nowadays, in this atmosphere of uncertainty and fear, it is a pure joy to watch people that have dreams, work at making them a reality, and who passionately believe in what they are doing.

    What I find the most interesting is that all of the "sharks" started out in the same way, with basically nothing but an idea, and they worked, slaved and sweat to make their ideas into the reality that they wanted. While I am generally not impressed with how nasty the comments can get, and I do sometimes wish that the folks on the panel would be just a wee bit less savage in their criticisms,there really isn't a nice way to say to someone that their idea is unsalable, squicky, or just plain dumb.

    I was glad to see that the young man with the "Sleep Water" idea got funded. I intensely disliked Kevin calling him a cockroach, a greedy cockroach, and telling him that he could squash him and his dumb product and not lose a minutes' worth of sleep. It was pure fun to see the look on his face when after all of his snorting, the product was funded. Were I Mr. O'Leary, in view of what's been happening in his financial life lately, I'd not be quite so dismissive.

    I DO hope that this show continues. It's interesting and very educational.moreless
