For me, it's the second best cauldron - my favorite is still the one that was lit by the arrow (Atlanta or Barcelona?).
I liked it - yes, I thought the agrarian vs industrial revolution and then the "Go NHS!" things a bit annoying, but it required a lot less 'what do they mean by...?" thoughts than it did with Beijing, for example.
For some reason, the opening/closing ceremonies always make me cry - neat to see so many people from so many different countries coming together like this. And WONDERFUL to see some countries sending women for the first time.
