Watching the start of the Olympics in London......Anyone else?
This is a mess.
This is a long Old Navy commercial.
Ya gotta think that even the Queen is thinking “WTF?”
Yeah, they lost me after Mary Poppins.
I loved the beginning when the forged the Olympic Rings and flew in the other four but banging the drum for the NHS is just pathetic. Its like hyper glitzy propaganda. I got a very heavy “!984” vibe from that bit.
I thought I saw a brief clip of Fawlty Towers on one of the screens.
HAHAHA.....ME thinks that would be well funny!
Funny you should mention 1984. Listen to the song they’re going to play at the end of the Parade of Athletes.....
Turn off your recorder, you are wasting digits.
These Lib directors try so damned hard to send subliminal messages with their “productions” I LMAO because it is just 3 hours of complete CRAP!
UN-freakin' believable. My husband and I are watching this crap and almost literally got sick when that sh!t came on the screen.
Why didn't they "artistically" portray the massive NHS waitlists? Or how British patients have to wait 9+ months just for an MRI in the UK? The deaths from cancer in the UK that wouldn't occur if the patient was treated in the US???
UNREAL. That part of the opening ceremonies was just sick. SICK.
QE II-”When in the hell is McCartney on?”
I missed that thankfully. They didn’t do much on their history as Greece and China did, guess being PC? If so, that’s a shame.
I'm still sickened over that NHS (tribute to the UK's socialistic National Health Service) segment though... ugh!
LMAO! YOu Sir are in charge of the next Opening ceremony! ;-)
“The Chinese put on an electrifying show.”
Yes, they must be feeling pretty smug right about now.
I also remember something from the LA Olympics from years ago, a whole bunch of white pianos....playing Rhapsody in Blue? Something like that.
I thought it was kind of cheesy at the time, but man it looks hot now.
I’m sorry for Danny Boyle, this gets about negative 3 stars from me.
