    Olympics opening ceremony feature humorous British references, including sheep, a sheepdog, and a tribute to universal healthcare

    The dizzying production somehow managed to include a flock of sheep (plus busy sheepdog), the Sex Pistols, Lord Voldemort, the engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a suggestion that the Olympic Rings were forged by British foundries during the Industrial Revolution, the seminal Partridge Family reference from “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” some rustic hovels, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” and a bunch of dancing nurses and bouncing sick children on huge hospital beds in a paean to the National Health Service.

    My favorite bits were the pastoral England to Industrial Revolution, the James Bond and Queen Elizabeth II skit, and the Rowan Atkinson appearance. I'm a huge fan of Atkinson.

    Thought it was presently good, and not the embarrassment I dreaded.
