It didn't work out that way.....
That show? Was absolutely, totally AMAZING. It caught me, and didn't let go. 4-1/2 hours later, when it ended, I was finally able to turn off the TV and head for bed.
The scenarios, the pyrotechnics, the pageantry - - amazing. Absolutely, totally amazing.
The parts I like best?
- Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean as a keyboard player with the London Symphony Orchestra. Hilarious.
- Daniel Craig as James Bond, with Her Majesty the Queen, heading to the arena by helicopter, and her (supposedly) parachuting into the games.
- Paul McCartney's voice cracking with emotion as he began singing "Hey Jude." Seeing a star of his caliber chocking up with emotion like that really showed a real, down-to-earth side of the man. Cheers to you, Sir Paul.
Well done, London. Well done, indeed!
