I am sure many of you already seen it, but for the east coasters it's on tv now. What do you think so far?

I'm from the UK and I watched some of it earlier. Considering the opening ceremony cost 27m i thought it was pretty budget but hey bring on the games.

Just wish CC had an Olympic event running alongside it for the next 16 days, that would be so cool.

I think the English celebrate their HCS because it was one of the fist things Winston Churchhill did after WW11

Sure the CC Olympic events could be long distance stalking, full contact trash talking and back stabbing. The gold metals will be given out via auction.

Im pretty sure the celebration of the NHS is not meant to be anythig to do with the current financial dilemea and focus of public sector savings but something British can be proud from the standpoint of what a country can acheive.

A free and healthwise competant healcare system is something we are very lucky to have.

Pretty disappointing actually. Looks like they threw something together on a shoestring budget and with zero imagination. Nothing spectacular, extremely forgettable. :(

It was Aneurin Bevan who started the NHS, not Churchill. As a doctor, I thought that would be pretty easy :rolleyes:

On topic, The opening ceremony was awesome. Made me proud to be British :)
