From Mary Teresa Bitti of the Financial Post:

  • Facing the dragons
    “It’s back: a chance to see hard-core negotiating smack up against the theatre of the absurd.

From Rick McGinnis of Metro News:

  • Dragons turn up the heat
    “Let’s make it clear that Dragons’ Den would probably have been a hit on almost any other network β€” the collision of rock-ribbed business priorities with the fervent dreams of budding entrepreneurs is a winning formula almost as self-evident as ‘encourage B-list celebrities to humiliate themselves by dancing’ or ‘get trippy celebrities to judge a pumped-up talent show.'” Read more.

From Theresa Tayler of the Calgary Herald:

  • The new dragon
    “The Calgary-based oil tycoon is the newest arrival on Dragons’ Den, the CBC show that has five of Canada’s respected and wealthy business moguls taking pitches from the nation’s want-to-be inventors and entrepreneurs.” Read more.
