- Awesome Music: Sumptuous work by Lee Holdridge and Don Davis (nominated for five Emmys, and won three of them).
- Fanon Discontinuity: Season Three often receives this from fans due to Catherine's death.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Catherine, who often needs Vincent's help in times of danger, is played by Linda Hamilton, the woman who would later redefine the Action Girl western ideal as a lean, mean fighting machine.
- Seasonal Rot: Season Three, in which Catherine dies, is deeply unpopular with a lot of the fanbase.
- Signature Scene: Vincent hearing a call for help, and riding to the rescue on the roof of a subway train.
