Opening Ceremony of Summer Olympics 2012

Sadly, I wasn't able to see the whole opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics that is now being held in London. I saw few parts of it as it was mentioned on the news and some are posted here online. I've seen one news article that the Queen of England is also very sport and even did a part during the ceremony. It was shown on the news how James Bond went inside the Queen's office in the palace and then they came out of the room and hopped on the helicopter. Then they reappeared and both jumped off the helicopter on a parachute to the Olympic Stadium. Of course the other person that jumped off is a double and not the Queen herself.

I saw the Queen was being focused on TV and sat on one of the press boxes inside the stadium along with the other dignitaries. Some people commented that nothing can't beat the opening of the Beijing Olympics in 2008. I would say, even though I haven't seen the whole part of this opening ceremony that they have distinct presentation and both countries really did their best to have a grand opening ceremonies. The director, Danny Boyle, made the opening more cinematic. According to some, the opening was boring and more of a political showcasing and that Beijing showed more showmanship and of very high standard.

To those who have watched it, what can you say about the opening ceremony yesterday at the 2012 Olympics in London? I can't say much about it since I didn't see the whole ceremony. What I can say is that the Beijing Olympics really set a high standard for opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics. Their presentations were really jaw-dropping. I hope I can find a link or maybe NBC will have a replay of yesterday's opening.

I have watched the London Olympics opening on a delayed telecast via a local TV network.

Personally, I can say that Beijing Olympics was a little better compared to talent and showmanship.

I was able to watch the opening ceremony but never so impressive and I was waiting for something that would cause an impact but nothing came. The only thing that made me laugh is Mr. Bean and when Q. Elizabeth jump from the chopper.
