    I kind of liked it, yet I'm not sure it's worth the investment. It was a bit refreshing to see how fast-paced it was compared to some shows that like to drag out results a little too long.

    One part that I don't like, but I can't see how it can be fixed, is that I want to know if they invest the money does it eventually pan out or not.

    the Canadian/ UK versions have special episodes that do check out the effect of the money.

    i liked the pilot and to see some business asking for investments is reality not every genius has a money to back them up.. and i agree that i love the fast paced setting of the show.. its like purely investments and business talk and thats it.. love it i hope they can show what happened after the investments

    i have a question about the "percent share/equity" that they keep offering..
    what does that mean? does it mean they get that much percent of the profits or does it mean they own that percent of the company...?

    I'm guessing that just means part of the profit or sales. I couldn't imagine the investors managing all of those companies.

    I'm really impressed by this show so far. I love watching the reactions of the panel when a really horrible idea comes in (like the surgically implanted blue-tooth!) and seeing some 'sharks' on the panel say no quickly and others really take to the idea.

    I agree that the best part of the show is the speed in which it moves. They certainly don't waste any time! I really hope that this show sticks around... I'll certainly be watching!

    Some of the ideas are pretty ridiculous, like the singers who audition for American Idol and are really bad. I'm guessing they purposely get some people with terrible ideas to make the show funny?

    This show is so much better than Donald Trump's Apprentice. The Sharks are super smart.

    I also liked the show because of the help they give to small entrepreneurs and even give marketing tips to viewers just like the online version of it, the http://www.SharkTankTVShow.com which give chances for people who has great idea but lacks capital.
