* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is Melinda a well-meaning woman trying to help the living and the dead? Or is she just a nosy person sticking her fingers in everyone's pies?
* TheScrappy: Nikki is seen by some fans as this not only because [[spoiler: she gets in the way of Melinda and Jim/Sam, which got better when Jim "returned"]], but her character also rubbed many the wrong way.
* MomentOfAwesome: Melinda gets one in the climax of the season one finale, when [[spoiler: she convinces almost all the ghosts resulting from the plane crash to go into the light - one of the very few people to stick with Romano, a female flight attendant, goes over in a season two episode - with so many going through at once that it actually becomes visible to Melinda (and the audience) for the first time in the series.]]
* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: Jamie Kennedy as a professor. Especially given [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfzThMe7bBM this]] little incident.
