I don't believe I have seen a post regarding this point. In "Marathon", when the FBI guy was taking the sleeves off the guy in the negative, the bad guys were looking at the exact same scenes we were. There was a shot of the bad guys playing a tape of exactly what the viewing audience was looking at. How? I don't think the answer is simply that there was a hidden camera in the room. In "Hidden Agenda", the bad guys were able to look at Veil across the dinner table through the turncoat's eyes. How? And better yet, why? They could have just wired him for sound. Gus showed Veil a picture of Veil taking the picture of "Hidden Agenda". Who? At the end of each episode, there is a shutterbug click of somebody taking a photo of Veil. Of course, this latter one may not a literal thing, but rather largely symbolic. Or maybe not. Who is watching Veil? If "Project Marathon" was a high-tech surveillance operation, it has to do with visual perception. There's something here, but I'm not sure what. -Alan Tucker-
