Where to Start with Adventures in Odyssey
your journey through Adventures in Odyssey can be a daunting task.
With well over 50 audio collections to choose from, it may be a little
overwhelming. Do you just jump into the series and buy albums randomly? Will
it make sense if you buy albums backwards?
Our Recommendation: Start from the Beginning.
If you plan on collecting the
whole series eventually, we recommend you start at the beginning with the very
The Adventure Begins.
This collection, along with the albums following, establishes the floor
plan and tone of the show, introduces the town's characters, and
immerses you into the world of Odyssey. Each episode builds upon episodes
before it, so something might not make sense when a reference to former
episodes is made if you're listening to the series out of order.
Of course, many fans receive Odyssey
albums as gifts or begin collecting the series out of order and it can
be exciting to fill in the pieces. Either way
works since Adventures in Odyssey is about character development
and maintains an overall consistency from show to show. Starting chronologically or at
random can be adventurous in of itself. The series gets better and
better as it unfolds, and the production quality improves over time.
Adventures in Odyssey was started during the 1980's, so time periods
and styles are evident early in the series. However, the show is
timeless in its flavor and enjoyable regardless of the era you're from.
Get a feel for the series.
If If you don't plan on collecting the
entire series and would like to get a feel for what the series is about,

previously released episodes, so if you decide to collect the series in
chronological order later, you may discover a lot of repeats.
Created for new beginners, this collection introduces
Odyssey's main characters, the setting, and much more.
