* The Loose Canon episode on 9/11. Unsurprisingly, Lindsay delves into some pretty heavy territory regarding a terror attack that claimed 3000 lives and set up many other wide-reaching and destructive events in the years following. It's made worse by the fact that Lindsay is a New Yorker herself and recently experienced a release of suppressed emotions she didn't even know she held back when visiting a museum about 9/11.

It's not entirely mournful, but the tragedy of the attack definitely shows.

* Her documentary "The A Word," one of her most serious works, reveals that Lindsay had an abortion and feels conflicted about it (as she says again in her "Shut Up and Talk Interview"). Whatever your opinion on abortion is hardly matters because ''we don't even know what the situation was.'' Did Lindsay actually have a choice, or did some medical problem force her to abort? Did she make her decision with misinformation of some kind? Is it really all not that huge of a deal to her and we're just reading into it too much? We'll obviously never know.
