* 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?
* HilariousInHindsight: [[Series/AmericanHorrorStory Evan Peters]] as a ghost [[spoiler: who eventually goes into the light]] in a season 5 episode after his role in ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryMurderHouse'', where he played another ghost.
* 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.]]
** In "Bad Blood," the father who's being haunted by a pair of ghosts [[spoiler: hoping to drive him and his daughter to their deaths, as they did with all the previous tenants - as they love playing those kind of sick games, they join the very short list of ghosts who ''don't'' go into the light -]] gets one when he[[spoiler: brings their games to a (temporary) end by blowing up the house. As the male ghost says before it all goes boom, "Well played."]]
* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: Jamie Kennedy as a professor. Especially given [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfzThMe7bBM this]] little incident.
