Review: NBC's stumble can't mask Olympics' beautiful opening ceremony

Even with coverage that included banal commentators, a cut sequence and no live streaming, the sheer thrill of the opening ceremony shines through.

Through a fortuitous series of events, because someone knew someone who knew someone, I watched Friday's remarkable opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games by way of the BBC — which is to say, without commercials or Ryan Seacrest and with relatively little intrusion from the commentators. Later, I saw what the United States saw.
