If it had rained during the ceremony, the pyrotechnic rings would not have been able to light. Although it showered lightly at the start of the evening, the skies cleared just in time for the show. See more »
I almost fell asleep watching this ceremony, and I loved every single opening before this one. I guess the Chinese set a new standard with Beijing's opening ceremony that will not be easy to surpass. London's ceremony lacked intensity and was mostly focused on promoting social issues and in being 'cool'. I don't even want to comment about all the fuzz about the queen, because it was really lame and the rest of the world don't give a damn about her. It's amazing the amount of money they spent on this show and how little they accomplished. That's it, if you are looking for a great Olympic ceremony, look the one from Beijing or maybe Athens, because this one is pretty boring.
