I loved it! Except for Mr Bean!! And yeah, McCartney was awful. Real letdown were the Arctic Monkeys.

Terry, as with life mate I think its always a case of `horses for courses`, personally I pretty much despise the Mr Bean series of shows, and, I have hardly listened to the Arctic Monkeys at all, though I am a music buff in thaat I like all music genres in part. That said, I DID enjoy both the Mr Bean part of the ceremony and the Monkeys too, I think its because I viewed it as part of a global audience and not personally, I think they achieved what was asked of them, and still, as much as he really is a legend in every way, Paul did not perfform well. While on the ceremony, and yes, He was the `Greatest` in many ways, I thought it not the best move to bring out Muhammed Ali. he is not well and looked like he did not know where he was, let him be now.

Apparently, the Chinese hated our ceremony saying we were really stingy and saying the film inserts may have made sense to the TV viewers, but not to the people in the stadium. Charming!

Pah! Cheeky buggers!

Personally I found their opening ceremony satisfying at the time but needed something more substantial later on!

:D

A lot of people have been nasty to our Olympians saying they were crap and let us down etc, etc. But I believe that old adage of "It's the taking part NOT the winning", and think those nasty people should be ashamed of themselves.

The Chinese can be critical, oh well As for folks picking on your Olympians, that is wrong. Terry, you are right, they need to get a life.

ANY Athlete would be proud to take part, they can only do their best, their are always winners and runners-up. Its been great listening to the British swimmers who ALL appear to be just so happy and proud to have given their all, they certainly have let no-one down, there is always someone better/faster than you, be they British, Chinese, African or American. Get over it critics.
