* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is the Man From Another place [[spoiler:legitimately trying to stop BOB to prevent a catastrophe from happening, or is he an evil spirit trying to take control of BOB for his own purposes?]] Due to the show's cancellation, we may never know for sure.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Season 2 episode 8 has a flashback of Ben and Jerry remembering a girl dancing around with a flashlight in their room as children. It's wordless, 4 frames per second, and goes on for over a minute. Hold on, Ben & Jerry?... [[LateToThePunchline Oh lord.]]

** It's rumoured that the decision not to move forward with the Cooper and Audrey romance was down to Lara Flynn Boyle (who was involved with Kyle at the time). It was confirmed by the producer-writer Robert Engels. Weirdly enough, Donna (Lara Flynn Boyle's character) and Dale never actually interact all that much, if at all.



* ReplacementScrappy: Annie Blackburn, who was wheeled in out of nowhere purely to supplant Audrey as Cooper's love interest. Her [[spoiler:winning the Miss Twin Peaks pageant]] is likely to produce the same reaction from viewers that it did from [[spoiler:Mayor Milford: "She's been living in this town about fifteen minutes!"]]

* HilariousInHindsight: Don S. Davis being part of a secret military project involving aliens years before [[Series/StargateSG1 being part of a secret military project involving aliens]] is hilarious on its own, but the best part is when he advises Cooper against keeping secrets for the sake of the greater good, which was the crux of a lot of drama and the opposite stance he and most of the cast took on ''[=SG1=]''.
** "[[{{Uncanceled}} I'll see you again in 25 years]]." "Awesome In Hindsight", frankly. One frankly can't help wondering if this may have been Lynch's plan all along....

*** ''Series/TwinPeaks'' is [[Memes/TVTropes currently a running joke]] on the TVTropesFora, where it is regularly mentioned among anime. (The reason for this is that someone once recommended this in an anime recommendations thread where the original poster didn't explicitly ask for anime.)

* PairTheSpares / CrackPairing: There is a small following for Annie Blackburn x John Justice Wheeler. The two never even meet, but Dale x Audrey shippers sometimes like to pair their respective replacement love interests together, just so Dale and Audrey can become a couple again.

* TheScrappy: James Hurley (for being monumentally stupid, even by the standards of Twin Peaks teenagers) and Josie Packard (for being a hysterical victim and nothing else); take your pick. Or Nadine (although some more recent fans love her for her eerie resemblance to CrazyAwesome secret agent Molotov Cocktease from ''TheVentureBrothers''). Annie and John Justice Wheeler, especially if you're a [[FanPreferredCouple Cooper/Audrey]] fan.
** Lana Budding Milford also gets a lot of flack.
** Arguably the series' biggest Scrappy is Evelyn Marsh, who served no purpose to the main storyline and was probably only added to [[spoiler:[[PutOnABus write James off the show]]]].

* CanonSue: No matter how you look at it, Cooper is a [[TheAce rather idealized character]]: intelligent, educated, physically fit, gregarious, charming, compassionate, well-liked by just about everyone he meets and praised by every police officer in the show as an excellent FBI agent. David Lynch also admitted that Cooper is at least partly inspired by Lynch himself, noting that "He says a lot of the things I say". So one could not unreasonably interpret Cooper as Lynch's idealized self-insert character. Unlike most examples of the trope, however, Cooper is not disliked by the fanbase because, being loosely based on David Lynch, he's also an eccentric CloudCuckoolander, which most viewers find endearing.

* SignatureScene: The Red Room scene at the end of the third episode. Both ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' and ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryInc'' have done explicit ShoutOut scenes to it, with ''Mystery Inc.'' even having a dog stand-in for Laura, and getting the same actor for The Man From Another Place!

* SeasonalRot: It is generally agreed that the series loses focus after the main story arc is resolved in episode 8 of season 2. A new, related story arc emerges in the rest of the second season, but much of it suffers from having been neglected by Lynch and left to less competent writers and directors, causing [[DependingOnTheWriter a vast drop in quality and major inconsistencies in characterization]]. Kyle [=MacLachlan=] became impatient with Lynch's non-involvement and cast member Kimmy Robertson admits to having stopped watching due to SeasonalRot.

There is, however, also general agreement about that the series (if only barely) managed to avoid JumpingTheShark and actually found some of its original form again in the final episodes of Season 2.

** His motivations remain mysterious in the show, but FireWalkWithMe lends a darker interpretation to his character. [[spoiler:He seems opposed to BOB only in that BOB hoards garmonbozia for himself and deprives the other Lodge creatures of their rightful fill. The Man From Another Place is happy to slurp up the garmonbozia that BOB proffers after killing Laura and thereby inflicting suffering upon both Laura and Leland.]]
** Further related to ''FireWalkWithMe'', [[spoiler:he claims to be "the arm," (likely) meaning Mike's arm - a remnant of Mike's own evil. I've always thought that the Black Lodge denizens were unhappy with BOB running amuck after Mike turned good. (If BOB was Mike's familiar, he probably had him on something of a leash.) BOB wasn't paying his garmonbozia taxes, so the MFAP and "Mrs. Tremond" etc. were therefore helping the investigation of who killed Laura more than they might have otherwise.]]
