Poll: did you watch (and enjoy) the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony?

Over one billion people tuned in. Did you?

MORE THAN ONE billion people turned on their television sets to watch Queen Elizabeth II officially open the 2012 Olympic Games last night.

Danny Boyle directed a lavish opening ceremony which featured British film, music and television stars, as well as thousands of volunteer musicians, dancers and singers.

Highlights included comedy moments from Rowan Atkinson as Mr Bean, an emotional hymn from Scot Emeli Sandé and a surreal video starring the Queen, her dogs and James Bond actor Daniel Craig.

Everyone here at HQ tuned in and enjoyed it, but did you? Let us know in today’s poll:

Poll Results:

Yes, but I didn't enjoy it (2634)
Yes, and I enjoyed it (1929)
No, I didn't watch it (665)
