Cool and memorable sequences
My first novel Tucked In features a plethora of pop culture references that are sometimes very specific. Not content to just name-drop the show or toy or song, I wanted to express details as to WHY my main character was so fond of the reference. A great example is Battlestar Galactica, the late-70s TV show that I remember well. One of the things that was most memorable (apart from the Cylon Centurions which are also mentioned in the book) was the Viper launch sequence. I am confident they re-used the same footage over and over, but it was still cool every time it occurred. It was, in a word, a THRILL. You can watch it as many times as you want here.
Does anyone remember the Viper launch sequence? What else do you remember about Battlestar Galactica?
