  Odyssey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Odyssey consists of twenty-four books and begins, as do many ancient epics, in medias res, meaning that the action begins in the middle of the plot, and that prior events are described through flashbacks or storytelling.
In this theory the Odyssey served as a maritime chart for the Atlantic, and Odysseus travelled, among other destinations, to all major archipelagoes: the Cabo Verde islands, the Antilles, the Azores, the Canary isles and finally to Cadiz which supposedly is the location of Ithaca.
Another part of the Ocean which is claimed to have been described by Homer is the route along the southern shores of England to Cornwall (the "tin-route") as tin, by 1200 BC found almost exclusively in Cornwall, was of major importance in the Bronze Age.

 ClassicGaming.com - The Museum: Magnavox Odyssey
Because Odyssey was presented as an addition to the Magnavox TV line, it seemed as if it were an additional option to Magnavox televisions rather than something that could be sold on its own.
He even went so far as to see if the Odyssey could be reduced in size and the electronic parts cut down to use the newly emerged semiconductor technology.
But the dropping public interest and lack of sales eventually killed Odyssey, and many retailers were left with a bad impression of the whole "electronic game" concept.

To describe the sound of #1 is like a love child of a cocaine fuelled catwalk model with an art school teacher (style and substance).
Odyssey, for me, is a big shift sideways for Fischerspooner.
Where #1 sounded great, there was a serious lack of great songs, a problem which is rectified on "Odyssey." One of the things that's great about Fischerspooner is their attention to the quality of sounds--very few albums I own produce the fabulous sound that comes out of my speakers when I play their CD's.
