Gotta agree there, the depiction of the country, NHS and culture was all really nice. Thought the Tim Berners-Lee tribute was a nice touch and the Rowan Actkinson/Bean sketch whilst they were getting everyone offset was a stroke of genius.

Agree with the music as well, I quite like Arctic Monkeys but I didn't think they were appropriate for the ceremony. I think it should have ended with a live rendition of Pink Floyd's eclipse like they had with the releasing of the final fireworks rather than Paul McCartney, it looked like he fluffed his lines, or was it a sound issue? Either way Hey Jude... nice song but not what I'd end the ceremony with.

Still though, was a good contrast to Bejing, hats tipped to Danny Boyle.
