*** Not only is it a Joy Division song, it's "Atmosphere", the last song released by Joy Division while they were still together, and the one with the repeated line "Walk In Silence". Simon also listens to "Killing Moon" by Echo and the Bunnymen in one episode, suggesting a more than brief flirtation with post-punk.



** Nathan has a lot in common with [[{{Deadpool}}, a certain other wise cracking jerkass who never shuts up]].

** "I don't have a brother, I'm the classic example of an only child" is (aside from a pronoun switch) an exact quotation from ''Series/TheYoungOnes''

** WordOfGod suggested that Simon's style and persona was deliberately evocative of Ian Curtis. A JoyDivision song plays in the background at one point while Simon sits at his computer.

* CantHaveSexEver: Oddly enough, the effective result of Alisha's first power. She and Curtis can't have ''mutually consenting'' sex.
** It's a grey area, but theoretically he ''could'' give her prior permission to use her power on him, making the act consensual. It's more a question of intimacy, though. Her pheromone manipulation causes him to forget who he is momentarily-he stops caring about her and just wants to have sex with her, and once the physical contact is broken, he can't remember any of it. Because they want to preserve their ''emotional'' connection, they are forced to resort to more [[ADateWithRosiePalms unconventional methods]] of sexual intimacy...

** Alex gives one to Stuart when asking him about the irony of their situation "Am I fucking you because your not gay and your just sick of having your power or am I fucking you because you are gay and you just don't want to tell anyone about it?"

* CaptainObvious: Nathan's "The probation worker's gone mental!" line, when he'd already been warned about said probation worker's mentality and [[GenreBlind refused to believe it]]. In his defence, you probably ''wouldn't'' believe that your supervisor had suddenly turned into a murderous axe-wielding maniac until you saw it with your own eyes. Especially if you're TheDitz.

** Simon is GenreSavvy enough to point out this is the inevitable result if they don't quarantine and deal with the zombie problem immediately.

** A gem from Series 2 about this trend.
--> '''Nathan''': "She's a beautiful girl and she's here, in the community centre!"
--> '''Simon''': "So?"
--> '''Nathan''': "So I seem to remember a similar scenario that resulted in me having sex with an 82 year old woman!"
--> '''Curtis''': "And there was that shapeshifter girl, she was mental."
--> '''Kelly''': "Yeah, look what happened with him and that probation worker."



** Peter the fanboy from Season 3 is also GenreSavvy and very excited to have figured out Superhoodie's secret identity.

** Doubling as a case of GenreSavvy, Simon's understanding of werewolf behavior like "waking up at the zoo" sounds [[Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon very familiar]].

* StockSuperpowers: Mostly Subverted, as powers granted by the Storm are extremely varied. For all the recognizable powers like Flight, Electrokinesis, Invisibility, or Teleportation, there are ones like causing anyone who touches you want to have sex with you, telekinetically controlling daily products, perceiving the world as a GTA-style video game, or automatically teleporting to the nearest closet when you lie about your orientation.

* StraightEdge: Perhaps surprisingly, Rudy actually eschews smoking, although he encourages Rachel to smoke pot, implying he has indulged in the past.
