* 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.]]

* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music of Awesome]]: The soundtrack, really. Good thing too, because most of it consists of a few tracks played over and over in each episode, and if it weren't so good it would drive people crazy. Now has [[AwesomeMusic/TwinPeaks it's own page]].
