I just got done watching the first third of the Olympics opening ceremonies - except it was the Italian Rai Due feed, not the NBC one, that I saw. Things I noticed:
  • The opening ceremonies were really kinda dull. The monochromatic nature gave it a bad 70s disco vibe, and the dance routines et al just weren't terribly engaging.
  • Much like American commentators, they would Just Not Shut Up. When watching at 4x speed, it was a nonstop stream of chipmonkery.
  • While the signs the carriers held up for the countries were in Italian, the TV subtitles were in English.
  • Parka Chic has a loooong way to go.

Wish they did things more like the Greeks did.
