Dang - looks like it's only playing on KRCB in the North Bay around here...

Yeah, what show is this? I've never heard of it. Is it good?

See the orange words in the OP? Those are links:

Everybody has a great idea that could change the way we work, the way we live or the way we play. Everyday Edisons documents the development process of 14 inventions and the parallel stories of the people who invented them as they are taken from a sketch on a napkin to a store shelf.

What are links? I probably should have looked first.

More browsing reveals it's a little like Dragons' Den, except you're not asking for money to help your business, you're asking for advice to turn your idea into a marketable product.

I bet there is a pile of legalese to go through to avoid patent troubles.
