These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Also has built-in Mood Whiplash when combined with the original intro video.
Just Here for Godzilla: Some viewers, including this troper in his early youth, watched the show almost solely for its segments on the Unexplained, which were strange and fascinating enough to lead directly into...
The originally-aired, non-symphonic version of the song had some subtle differences...that might have made it even creepier.
The ending credits music was also extremely haunting. Every single thing about the show's music was awesome, really.
Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: While the show did deal primarily with crimes, unexplained phenomenon and various other spooky things, it did on occasion deal with people looking for long-lost relatives. Many times in later broadcasts, these long-lost relatives and loved ones got to meet again after decades of being separated, sometimes having not seen each other since they were children.
Most Wonderful Sound: Anytime Robert Stack said "Update!" It usually meant that a mystery had been solved, or at the very least there was a good strong clue.
Unless of course, the resolution was a sad one—that a missing person had been found dead, or worse yet, was still missing.
Then again, Robert Stack died on 2003. It's not like he can come back and take over, can he?
None of us/the fans have a problem with bringing in a new host. Like with anyone following Rod Serling on remakes of The Twilight Zone, though, does that new host fit in with the atmosphere? This isn't America's Most Wanted, its Unsolved Mysteries. Likewise, the rock music, instead of the world famous theme song, is garbage. "Hip culture" is often precisely the side of society that doesn't pay attention to the deeper things that Unsolved Mysteries stands for.
Most believe Bill Kurtis should have been the new host.
Values Dissonance: It may be a little jarring to viewers when cases that involve people growing marijuana are treated with the same level of horror by the show as criminals that commit murder, rape, robbery, etc.
A large number of the stories about adopted children looking for their parents always mention how they kid was often abandoned by their young mother. While being a single teen mother isn't ideal nowadays, it's not exactly "abandon your child" horrible.
