* NextSundayAD: The 17-year-old Marcus mentions being into [[SegaDreamcast Dreamcast]] games when he was 7. To be fair, he doesn't say the Dreamcast was ''new'' at the time, but the Xbox Universal and Paranoid Linux are the only blatantly futuristic elements.

* [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding]]: ''Homeland'' ends up taking this path. [[spoiler:Marcus gets "fired" from his job with idealistic "perfect senator" Joseph Noss and gives up on "his little fantasy of democratic change" and on trying to work within the system altogether. It is unknown whether Joe Noss won the election in the end, and he gets dumped by Ange (Although they re-unite and get back together in the Epilogue).]]

** ''Homeland'' makes reference to issues very relevant as of its release (early 2013), with political commentary that tends to be critical of [[BarackObama a "progressive" president that allows torture and illegal imprisonment.]]
