Instead of starting a new thread I've just renamed this one.
Anyone know the exact time it starts? Not the telecast, but the actual ceremony.
Think it starts around 10pm Australian time and finishes about six months after that.
I'm looking forward to Chinese tanks "accidentally" running over 400 of the athletes...
Wish the bbc would shut up about the revolution, this is sport not a political slander contest.
Lol. Commentary's been pretty good on our coverage with enough information provided about the history behind each performance, though I've always been a fan of Keith Quinn and John McBeth so that might have something to do with my reasoning.
Not usually a fan of opening ceremonies but this one's been amazing, loved every minute of it so far.
Always hated the people that do the "commentary" over whats happening, it's so painfully obvious they are just reading the info off a sheet of paper.
Overall just couldn't watch much of the opening ceremony, watched for 5 minutes, turned it off for 5 minutes, then went back to it for another 5 minutes, just couldn't get into it.
Want them to say "I can't see anything for this ****ing smog."
NZ team comes out wearing crocs. Embarrassing.
Slaves to a trend.
Pretty sure they've just exhausted the world's supply of fireworks.
