I agree.

I like that.

I also like the closing shot that we saw at end of the episode.

This has been an interesting read, old thread but i just found it
I know this has been done before on another movie, I had this idea for long
time that the transmission received should've or could've been perhaps Hitler
opening the Olympics. (i think 70's TV mind set prevented that) and maybe
amplified through space via gravitational lensing or accelerated through a
white hole. I think it would've made more sense, I think, to have an older
transmission.

The other idea I had was no transmission received at all, instead, Galactica's
scanners pick up a large gravitational anomoly on the planet the 3 base ships
are hiding behind. They discover the USS Eldridge. (or is that to comical?)

Cheers.

Edit: umm, that last bit was an idea for one of my stories.

This opens up another point however, who was Boxey's real father? He is only alluded to in Saga when Serina and Apollo are in the Landram looking for Tylium on Carillon.
So I had this idea several years ago (actually in the late 90's) that Boxeys father is..... Sire Yuri.

My reasoning:
1. Yuri was a prominent politician and Serina was a reporter. Perhaps before the Holocaust She may have "done whatever it takes" for an interview, it happens in the real world all the time.
2. Yuri certainly wouldn't have been too faithful to Siress Yuri for this.
3. Yuri and Serina both escaped Caprica on the Rising Star, we know it was a hard ship to get onto (MOTRS), obviously Yuri bought his way on board, perhaps Serina blackmailed him to take her and his secret illegitimate kid too.
4. Serina KNEW what was going on in the elite class when Apollo was investigating the food shortage. She told Apollo he wouldn't like what he found there. Security at Yuri's door was good, too good to allow thirdclass refugees into that room to see what was going on. Serina obviously had ongoing contact with Yuri.
5. She refuses to tell who was his father, if its Yuri I dont blame her.
6. Boxey is a spoiled obnoxoius brat, a chip off the old block in some regards.

Anyhow, I'm sure this idea will piss some people off.

Interesting idea.

I think most fans tend to think of Serina as being above that sort of behaviour though. Maybe it's just me, but the idea of her--or any female with two good eyes and a brain--with Uri gives me the heebie jeebies. However, we don't really learn much about her, only deduce characterization through what we're shown. And when a heroine dies so tragically, she becomes respectable and untouchable in most minds.

And Boxey wasn't a spoiled, obnoxious brat, but a traumatized child. Hey, I wasn't particularly fond of the character either, but it certainly helped mold Apollo, keeping his character clearly defined and vastly different from Starbuck's. And the way those two men clicked despite those differences kept the show even more interesting, and for that I'm glad there was a Boxey.

When the 1936 Olympics were held, TV was very primitive. Low-power transmitters, which were very few and far between, and utilizing a cruder Ampilitude Modulation system that could scarecely have reached low orbit, let alone across the galaxy. There was no TV at the Games, only film cameras.
It has nothing to do with "70s TV mind set", whatever that means. It's simpky a matter of technology.

The Olympic games transmission was a major point of the Jodie Foster movie "Contact."
