Added DiffLines:

* BadassDecay: Intentionally... probably. Douglas Millford goes from being a secret agent, UFO searcher, close friend to Richard Nixon to the petty old man who died during sex in the series, the result is both jarring and hilarious.


Added DiffLines:

* ConspiracyKitchenSink: "The Secret History of Twin Peaks" doubles down on this including the FantasyKitchenSink the series already had, including everything from UFO's to Merryweather Lewis's death and nuclear waste on Twin Peaks, to make things worst is left unclear how much does any conspiracy plays with the others and how much does each side knows, for instance the FBI seems to know pretty well about the mystical elements meanwhile the USAF knows about alien life.
** Both worlds seem to be mostly unrelated and aside from a particularly traumatic event the "Alien life" side of things is still mundane compared to the rest.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: There are several points in the show, notably when the Twin Peaks Sheriff's Department search Jaques Renault's house, that police work is overtly simplified for the purpose of storytelling. There is little to no talk of search or arrest warrants in the first season of the show, which makes sense, since having to follow those rules would completely derail the dramatic flow of the show. This gets a possible lampshade later on when it is revealed that the local judge travels around in a Winnebago from city to city in his district to hold court, so [[spoiler:Leland Palmer's]] arraignment and [[spoiler:Leo Johnson's]] competency hearing all have to be jammed into one day of hearings.

* BecomingTheMask: Ben Horne starts a campaign of saving the pine weasel as a way to derail Catherine's real estate plans. Somewhere along the way he actually starts to care, and this leads to extensive soul-searching on his part.

Added DiffLines:

** To a certain extent, this applies to Sheriff Truman as well. Despite being a part of a [[spoiler: secret society that is sworn to protect Twin Peaks from an unknowable, eldritch evil lurking in the woods outside of town]], he seems fairly skeptical of Cooper's dream-based reasoning.

After years of rumors of a return (all of which were denied by Lynch), Showtime picked the show up for an additional nine episodes in October 2014. It was initially reported that Lynch and Frost would return to write and direct, but after Lynch didn't feel Showtime [[ScrewedByTheNetwork were willing to give him a proper budget]], he [[http://www.tvguide.com/news/david-lynch-drops-out-twin-peaks-revival-showtime/ announced that he had dropped out in April 2015]]. However, in May 2015, Lynch eventually confirmed that he will be directing and writing the new season and that there will be more than the nine episodes initially announced -- that and the two decades of time between seasons would be crucial to the plot. Location shooting has been ongoing throughout Autumn 2015, and ended in April 2016. The revival will premier on May 29, 2017, with 18 episodes.

* AmbiguousGenderIdentity: Denise Bryson, a DEA agent who might be a male transvestite or transgender female, since the difference wasn't as clearly understood in popular culture at the time.

* MonochromeCasting: Every recurring character is white except Josie Packard and Deputy Hawk. In the entire course of the series, very few non-white people even have lines, usually only appearing as extras at the Great Northern or a couple of black school teachers at the local high school with the only other exceptions being an Asian gangster and an unnamed AmbiguouslyBrown employee of Ben Horne. The predominantly WASPy demographics aren't ''entirely'' inaccurate to the locale, but Twin Peaks is still a noticeably white place.
