I had in my head that it started 2am BST. Don't know why I thought that. OK, it's a date then. May fall asleep during it, but hopefully not because of it.

*****semi spoiler**** Hazel Irvine on BBC saying themes will be looking after the environment, making the most of what you've got and looking after the earth's resources, and Brazilian music

The rings and logo are supposed to come DURING the pageantry and before the parade of athletes, not after. It wouldn't have killed the rhythm if they did it appropriately.

i don't think there's any rule about that. 

In time you will see this, the link with what is happening right now

So those monoliths are where the athletes are putting the seeds they have been given to form the olympic rings later on?

That is a very innovating and cool idea, to be honest. I just hope the rings actually look good and not messy like on the first rehearsal.

Probably the weakest artistic segment since Atlanta 1996. But my opinion might be marred by the constant interruptions from commercials. 

Channel 7 here only threw in two ads, but still very jarring when they did I.

Totally unfair for any of us watching CBC's coverage to make an accurate assessment of the ceremony. What complete garbage presented to us by the national broadcaster.

Somehow irreverent to the ceremony conservatives like me, but strangely, pleasantly understated and beautiful. Projections are here to stay and they are a love hate for me. As mentioned quite short before parade, but probably more to come.

The environmental aspect is nice, esp the tree for each nation.

I moss the formal elements around rings, fanfare and anthem, it seems the stage, projection and lighting scheme share a lot with D Atkins Vancouver Ceremony, and that's not a bad thing.

 

I've missed you all. I am apprehensive about kinetic cauldrons.

 

Enjoy the rest of the show :)

I can see the parade somehow resembles Rio carnival vibe with the straight procession as if the carnival down the street. Like it. 

Yeah, clever and lively. Getting a good vibe from this parade for once. As you say, they managed to invoke Carneval and put a stamp on the parade.
