I worried that a lot of what was shown would be pretty meaningless to a lot of the world.
I think we owe a serious apology for the Arctic Monkeys murdering "Come Together" - to be honest, I couldn't see why they were there in the first place, and Paul McCartney's set was pretty awful too.
What did you make of our 86-year old Queen sky-diving with James Bond? Hilarious, IMHO.

Simon, we do need to rethink the P-Day opening now though, I think Mr Boyle stole all our good ideas.

Seriously I hope that the other broadcasters commentary waa better than the Beebs

...that was hilarious indeed - LOL!

I like the "british humour" during and between some of the acts.
And that national team which marched in with Wellingtons was cool too, huh?!

Beside other opinions, I really enjoyed it, I must admit.

Many emotional moments during the ceremony. Arctic Monkeys are not my cup of tea, but Paul was a great "closer" for the show... (you may saw him better performing in the past).

Many efforts, many volunteers in the stadium... Well done, London!



See you soon,
Volker

... The Queen isn't an HRH, she's an HM.

Sorry for being really pedantic but I'm a very proud, Union flag waving Brit at the moment!!!

Good luck to all the Risti nations competing but I hope you don't win as many Gold's as us ha ha!!!

Cheers everyone

I loved the ceremony, something different for a change.

I thought Alex and the boys opened with the wrong song. "When the Sun goes Down" or "Riot Vsn" would have been so much more appropriate for the Stratford area. And if we had to have the Sex Pistols in the musical montage, surely it should have been "God Save the Queen" ? Lol !
