Just when I was going to suggest a Stones concert would have been 1,000,000 times better. Well, we got one minute.

The British posters in this thread have no shame. The ceremony blows, but at least the music is getting better.

I am enjoying making fun of it. I find it boring. Embarrassing almost. Nothing new, nothing breathtaking. Can't wait for the world reaction.
The Beijing opening set the standard. Boyle seems to have no clue of what the Olympics are.

Beijing might've been more impressive, I don't remember laughing and enjoying some great music. This show rocks

I assume you're Chinese? If so, I didn't understand quite a bit of your ceremony but I loved it because you were demonstrating your way of life, history and culture to the world. Britain is doing the same.

I'm seriously underwhelmed as well - I missed the first half hour & I was worried that I'd missed some seriously epic stuff, but it looks like it wasn't worth rushing home for.
