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

Yet they couldn't even win the right to host the winter Olympics from a country that has no snow lol

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

Now China enters. Will they win this Olympics edition? We'll have to see.

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

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.

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 :)

Korea, the host country of the next Olympics we'll see after Rio, is now entering.

I love their outfits btw. Even if they're the infamous Zika proof ones :lol:

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.

How much and how well you can do with simple things as light and music. Well done!

PS1: I'm antecipating a surprising Olympic rings demonstration...

PS2: I want a tricycle and one of those riders' clothing. :lol:
