The hospital part really creep me out, like the giant dead like baby, the zombie nurses, tons of mary poppins, huge harry potter monster...
The TV show dance part was really boring.

the hell is happening to this world?

That sh*t was bananas.

I honestly enjoyed the Beijing one better, but London did a great job and it was interesting to watch.

For the most part it was quite entertaining.
Unfortunately the most important part - the athlete's parade - is always rather boring and seems to drag on forever. The lighting of the flame was worth waiting for though.

Same here. I really liked the agrarian-to-Industrial motif, the moment of silence for war casualties, the healthcare and children's lit segments, but I really disliked the Internet stuff.

Yes, I loved it.

Heck yeah

No, I didn't even watch it.

The only thing I enjoyed about the olympics was Tommy Ramos' upper body....

...and my coworkers screaming in the track final when Culson tipped the obstacle thingie over.

No, it's supposed to be the opening ceremonies to a sports festival, not a theatrical wank fest. Even if you cut it down to an hour, and cut out pretty much all the narrative BS, it still would have been an excessive waste of time.

Also, the royal family looks like the decrepit inbreds they are, and the only time they should appear on screen is when they're representing the Spacing Guild in Dune.

And before you ask, no, I didn't like Beijing, and yes, for pretty much the same reason. Show up, light the torch, have a quick little musical number, parade, end. Elegence and dignity should be the aim, and the better part of either is brevity.

would that be a 30 min affair in your ideal world?

15 minutes, just to be safe.
