Best and Worst of the 2012 London Olympic Opening Ceremonies
Worst: Children's literature segment
The connection between iconic children's stories and British culture is clearly understood, but this segment seemed oddly out of place. Great to have J.K. Rowling part of the show, but it was so tangentially related to the Olympics. The greatest villains from British literature in a nightmare? Mary Poppins saving them? Sorry Mr. Boyle, but this should have been cut.
