The fly on the wall comedy about the people working behind the scenes, to make the 2012 Olympics happen in London. It finds hilarity in how a huge bureaucracy deals with petty details such as how to phase the traffic lights across London to get people from west to east, what to do with the Taekwondo hall after the event, and how to cope with publicity-seeking athlete with less than stellar media skills.

I had some laugh out loud moments in every episode. Some references to British personalities ( celebrities?) went over my head. Great seeing actors from BBC crime and drama doing this kind of mockumentary. .

It took awhile for me to get into this series, a fictional documentary-style program about the Olympic Deliverance Committee in London trying to assemble the 2012 Olympic Games with all its nuances and politically-correct angles, but in the end it was worth sticking with it . The cast is great and each episode features a new difficult situation for the team to try to get out of, often tripping on their own feet. Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville is a master of deadpan and the whole cast works hard to not crack up in some funny situations and deliver rapid-fire dialogue. Somewhat like The Office. It's worth a watch.

It's a little difficult sometimes to catch everything being said and to understand some of the nuances, but it's a truly hilarious series. Very well-conceived, written and acted. We loved it.

I didn't appreciate this right away , but after a couple episodes it started to sink in. Even if you can't understand all the dialogue, the characters repeat themselves in their zaniness; all soon becomes clear if you stick with it. "2012" is the most hilarious thing I've seen in years.

Delightful! Only the British would create a series about the (hopefully fictional) bureaucracy surrounding a project that is actually taking place in reality. Has some really great one-liners.

Great cast, not especially good story & the speech is so fast that even those fluent in Brit-speak may have issues. Disappointed.

Somewhat predictable but humorous nonetheless. Who hasn't worked with the 'know it all' who hasn't an original thought or, the individual in a position of responsibility that he/she is totally unprepared and inadequate for? As are in any group the caricatures of confidence and ego rather than common sense.

ineptitude isn't funny and the scenarios are predictable.
