* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The music that plays at the end of "The Final Conflict", as the radio newscaster makes a weather forecast of a beautiful day in Odyssey. The sense of triumph, hope, and justice of the track is palpable.
** The music really took a step up in the Novacom Saga. Composer John Campbell explained in an interview that he was trying to give the episodes a more intense, cinematic feel, and his love for action scores ''shows''.
** The musical transitions from the melody of "It Is Well" to the choir singing it in the episode "It Is Well". If there's such a thing as a Crowning Music of Tear Jerking, this would be it.



** "The One About Trust" is a really solid character-developing exercise, but at the very end, after Connie [[spoiler:quits working over a misunderstanding]], she tells Whit that it would "please her very much" if [[spoiler:she could continue working again.]] The word choice there is...odd, to say the least.



* OneSceneWonder: The episode "[[InAnotherMansShoes Another Man's Shoes]]" introduced an invention of Whit's called "The Trans-muter", which (in a controlled environment) enabled a person to experience life from the perspective of another person. Aside from a passing mention to the invention in an episode that aired a short time later, the invention hasn't been used or mentioned since. [[note]] The likely reason is that the Room Of Consequences can, and has, done what the Trans-muter was built to do, so the Trans-muter was seen as redundant and written out of the show.[[/note]]

** In "Plan B, Part II", Bennett Charles takes Arthur Dent captive and subjects him to [[ColdBloodedTorture "another 'experiment'".]] [[NothingIsScarier The audience is never told what exactly Dent was subjected to]], but Joanne later remarks that he looks like someone who's been through shock therapy, and Charles menacingly tells Dent that he's going to help them "whether [he] want[s] to or not".

** Jess Harnell's Bill Crosby character (from "The Present Long Ago" and "BTV: Live") is a lot more painful to hear in light of BillCosby's sex scandals.

** Mandy Straussberg may be the biggest one on the show to also be a recurring character. It became worse when [[spoiler:her parents separated]] more or less concurrently with story arcs concerning Eugene's complicated relationship with his father and Grady's struggles with his DisappearedDad.

** Tom Riley, whose Riley. His first wife died of cancer and their son Timmy died at drowned as a young age and whose child. Then his second wife Agnes suffers from dementia, wife, Agnes, miscarried a couple of times before she found out she was infertile and then sank into debilitating depression that also affected her memory. He endures being publicly dragged through the dirt during his time as mayor because of a faked scandal set up by Blackgaard's cronies, and in the aftermath of Agnes's treatment using the Novabox, in which is only made worse after she's exposed she appeared to a Novabox treatment.get better, the reversal of radio waves into brainwaves intrinsic in the box's programming deteriorated her mental state such that she could no longer even recognize him. You sort of want to pull the writers aside and tell them to just let Tom ''be'' already.

** The "scaring off the audience" aspect of the trope is mitigated by the fact that the show is entirely auditory, and if one has the Odyssey Adventure Club, then one has access to every single episode (and then some); it's not like a TV show where a person has to just sit down and focus all their attention on it, and it can be listened to while doing something else the way music can.

* ArchivePanic: The series contains nearly 800+ episodes and counting over a near 30 year run. Even if you don't also include the video series, that's still at least several days of listening to Odyssey if you chose to listen to every episode non-stop. Better pull up a comfy chair!
