As far as I got it it was Sunday. I actually watched another episode and checked the figures and my conclusion is this is really a well done, fast paced series with, according to wikipedia, 13,000,000 watchers. The interview Bruce did with some of the actors sounded absolutely not like the minds behind the script were up for a plot against bitcoin itself, so I expect it to be really a mayor boost in popularity.

Yes, really, how can something even be 'illegally invented'?

good one, m8.

and pretty cool to see Jason Biggs in there.


cheers

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

I actually watch this series regularly.  Personally I'm looking forward to the episode, but I think the hype is ridiculous and I don't think it will have any real impact on Bitcoin growth aside from speculators with high hopes.  Publicity is good, but nobody is going to see this episode and go "ZOMG what is that bitcoin thing, it's real, wow!  Let's dump lots of money into it without having a clue about what it actually is!"

It usually takes a few hours to sufficiently explain bitcoin in enough depth to tech/econ savvy people, and even then most exhibit a healthy skepticism before bothering to look into it any further.  Expecting some kind of massive boost from an inaccurate fictional portrayal in a TV drama is silly.  I think the segment that appeared on Fox News "Freedom Watch" with Napolitano was much more important.  They actually explained what it was to an audience of folks that would have genuine interest in it.

All that said, greed doesn't necessarily follow logic, so I could easily be wrong.  Place your bets.  Smiley

It will not make people jump into trading bitcoins - but it will be the first exposure to many and it can also lead to more media in a snowball effect.  But I agree that this will play out in a much longer time frame than most speculator expect it now.

If this article ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/13/the-good-wife-graham-phillips_n_1200021.html ) is anything to go by, it looks like regular watchers of the show will be more engrossed by the ongoing soap-opera story arcs and ignore the 'bitcoin' stuff as mere filler.

I'm doing a shot every time they say the word bitcoin.
