Finally got around to the final two episodes. More than anything I was fascinated with the emphasis on facial texture. Even went as far as to emphasize a zit on Olivia's cheek. The boy was like a human orange. Broyles was leathery, every crack and crease in Walter's face was emphasized. Pacey had a shaving scar. Everyone's facial flaws were exposed. Dunno if it was a function of HDTV, or a purposeful decision, but it was explicit.
If I had to pick a spirit animal, I'd have to go with doggy.
