    Had a dodgy start with the sheep and top hats but that was absolutely fucking amazing. Dunno what it was like compared tot he Chinese one since I don't normally bother watching thousands of people walk round in a circle.

    BTW our opening ceremony cost $40 million to do, the Chinese cost $100 million in a country where things generally cost a fifth of what they do here.

    Her Majesty didn't like it much though as much as the BBC insisted what was going on.

    Who here knows Mr Bean and who thinks we just have a cretin playing the piano?

    What's with the dogs in the Queen/James Bond vignette? They got more screen time than both of them combined. :confused:

    This is terrible. Every Olympics from now on should outsource their opening ceremonies to the Chinese.
