    I'm not watching but heard it was Coldplay? Certainly glad I'm missing it if that's the case.

    I thought Beyoncé was boring. Yes she can sing and dance but so can a lot of other people.

    Overall I thought it started on a semi-low but gained towards the end. I would give it a 7 out of 10.

    The biggest surprise to me was Lady Gaga. That girl can sing. She did an outstanding job that blew me away. I didnt expect that at all

    Shallow of me, but Beyoncé looked thicker than usual.

    The whole thing sucked.

    Game- boring.

    Halftime show- lame as hell.

    Commercials- yawn fest.


    The whole thing was an utter disappointment.

    Downton Abbey was more entertaining. After that was over, we tuned back, and it was STILL lame as ever. Worst in memory (what's left of it)

    I usually like Bruno because he brings "old soul" to the table. Not this time...

    The Cold Play dude crawling around creeps me out...

    Beyoncé might have talent but...as said before...it's all recycled moves and music.

    OK...it sucked.

    I liked the half-time show. Solid entertainment. I didn't really like any of the songs, but the production and dancing were really enjoyable.

    It was a good thing I ended up missing it. I was supposed to meet up with some folks but the plans fell through and I ended up working on the Truefire "How to Play like David Gilmour" lessons. Probably time better spent.

    Yup - Bruno Mars was the best part and he wasn't near his best.

    Officiating was lousy too.

    Somehow I don't think I was in the demographic they were pitching to.

    Liked the Doritos commercial about the baby. Game was entertaining for me.

    I agree - just watched a replay , thought it was pretty good. If you want to see a lame half time show watch an Australian rules grand final half time ... Now that's bad.. Remember you have to cater to the masses so of course they are going to choose main stream popular artists that are generally non offensive.

    Don't understand the criticism of Beyoncé... Every artist in that mould can be accused of "being influenced / copying " someone else... Especially in a live show! But damn she can move.

    I thought the game was fine, in Super Bowl scale. I've seen worse. The half-time show was Ok, but given the hype for SB #50 (!L), it was a bit of a letdown. I think they're trying to cover a really wide range of potential watchers, without really offending anyone, so it's turned into milquetoast. Bring back the next Janet Jackson, I say. Offend me. Please.
