I was trying sooo hard to like this, I really did want to, but I really can't say I enjoyed this opening ceremony much at all. I just got the feeling that it was more telethon, more concert, more EMA

Hello guys - some of you won't know me but some will watching the games ceremony and thought of you guys!

The John Narrowman kiss....that was without doubt meant to be a Take That to CERTAIN homophobic country.

Meh, nice enough ceremony. No real climax or wow moment though. A distant fourth behind the Delhi, Melbourne and Manchester OCs.

Yep, some nice moments, some bizarre ones, but not bowled over by it.

NOW THAT WAS A THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE OPENING CEREMONY. ..

If Glasgow was planning to hit the RESET button for the CWGs...Well they have for the Opening!

So different from anything gone before. Yes a good dollop of Scotland and Glasgow...BUT INCLUDING ALL THE COMMONWEALTH AS WELL.

A new Commonwealth Games age has begun!

Yeah, I admit the CWG were growing a bit out of proportion and started to look like the olympics (at least in Delhi). With this they gained an identity which differences it from the other megasport events. At least ceremony wise.

It felt like the same inclusive narrative of London 2012 all over again, trying too much to be more universal than national. Baton bearers and baton snatchers in black with golden details: another reminder of London. BTW, the past three opening shows in the UK - Manchester, London and Glasgow all have dealt with many common elements. Maybe because the UK's Olympic Journey began in 2002 and reaches the finishing line now in 2014.

The only thing I'd re watch is Captain Jack's Scottish cliche segment. Rest was pretty forgettable apart from the doggies.

Weee bit of a stretch at the end, it did go over time, but if you take out the March Past, the great time time dragger, not overly bad. And yeah the dogs were cool. Memories of my childhood comming back seeing them. Totally miss "Tutae", can still hear her bark.
