PyeongChang Paralympic OC Chat Thread

Recommended Posts

OK a dedicated thread for the Para opening. Not specifically live chat as many people are unable to watch live, but a place to discuss the OC & keep the general thread general :)

Wait what more people are unable to watch it live than the Olympics OC? I find the Paras are easier to watch online that then Olympics..

Stupid Channel 4, making it impossible to watch live on their internet TV app...grr

I wonder how much control they have over adverts in their streaming ouput- I guess they have absolute control over TV ads, but maybe not so much online.

I won't lie, that drum segment got kinda tedious after a while, though the projections were cool.

Now the arrival of the national flag. Also I noticed they slighty modified the main stage and raised it near the borders of the two adjacent tribunes to the cauldron.

I'd describe the opening sequences as "upbeat-traditional"- I wonder if they're trying to woo the home audience.

They went for the official interpretation of the Anthem this time, though with a chorus of operatic singers.

Bandabi at the seat Led screns :P That curve in the placard looks almost like the Thames but I just realized it could be the Han river.

Even the country name placards are "upbeat-traditional" (tho' the parade music not so trad ...)

Bandabi is also in trad cloth apparently
