Reader's Digest

This is the episode with the infamous view of a copy of Reader's Digest. Has Moore ever commented on this? Was it supposed to be intentional or was it a production goof? 23skidoo 15:23, 2 April 2006 (CDT)

The production needed books to fill out Adama's collection, they just never counted on someone putting one front and center, the clarity of DVDs, and obsessive fans. So I'd go with the second option. --Talos 16:54, 2 April 2006 (CDT)

Continuing on this conversation from more than 2 years ago (time flies!) - I actually noticed it on original broadcast, not DVD and it was pretty obvious what it was. Ditto the Scotiabank logo on the building. However, I recall reading something about BSG being a form of SF that basically is supposed to parallel the "real world" - sort of like how numerous episodes of Star Trek TOS had them visiting alien worlds that looked exactly like Earth, right down to the architecture (Miri, Return of the Archons, Bread and Circuses, not counting episodes where development was influenced by people from Earth like Patterns of Force and A Piece of the Action). I can't recall what the term is. It might be worth noting in this article if anyone can find what I'm talking about. It ties in with the utterance (unscripted but there nonetheless) of the word "Jesus" in some episodes, or references to Earth creatures like groundhogs (as occurs in a deleted scene in Valley of Darkness). 23skidoo 05:21, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
