Took this off my DVR schedule yesterday afternoon. I even asked the wife if she wanted to give up on the show. Her response (paraphrasing): "YES! Its so boring! How long can they go on about making fucking jeans?"

Just started on this series...and I'm loving it so far. And I don't really get the criticism of how making jeans is not interesting/creative enough...for me, it's all about the hustle. Doesn't really matter what they're try to make but how they're going about it.

Count me in for another episode!

I don't mind the jeans. They could be making anything but it's all about the hustle. I still wonder where they expect the jeans to go with only that one roll of denim though.

I liked this episode a lot. I loved when Ben got back at Kappo with the same line from the first episode ("You looked like you were about to cry"). Like others have said, it's not about the jeans, it's the hustle. New York is the perfect setting for this show.

I liked the episode as well, probably because it didn't have anything to do with the jeans
