I must blindly love England, because I thought it was the best Opening Ceremony I had ever seen. The only part I was a little "eh" about was the "love in the digital age" thing they had, but even the bulk of that was awesome. I adored the way they opened it with that little boy singing "Jerusalem" and then flipping it over to Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Loved the theme of green grass throughout and how they planted the countries' flags on that little hill. And the symbolism of lighting the cauldron was the most meaningful I had ever seen. CWW, you might be right, maybe it was too British for some. But it's in England, so that was what I was wanting. It was England being England and anything less would've been a disappointment. I LOVED it!

Oh, and Paul was swell too. :)
