* JerkSue:
** Charlie. Whenever she's acting like a brat, being a hypocrite (e.g. leaving Maggie and Aaron alone to fend for themselves, yet wanting to save a group of slaves later on in the same episode) or selfishly puts others' lives in danger with little to no sense of remorse, no one usually doesn't call her out on her crap. However, once in a blue moon if someone does, as one of the below entries mentioned, it's usually Miles, but he's not allowed to because 1) he's told how hard her life is, 2) that she's doing really great job or, 3) is made to look more of a {{Jerkass}} than he already is, even when what he's saying [[JerkassHasAPoint makes complete sense]].
** Rachel. She actually slapped Charlie for calling her out for abandoning her, and yet she was still portrayed as the sympathetic one.

** The series is ''loaded'' with references to the work of Creator/StephenKing, especially ''TheStand'' and ''Franchise/TheDarkTower''.

Added DiffLines:

* ToughActToFollow: As Creator/EricKripke's new show after leaving ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', there was great hype due to the show launching his career beyond the loyal confines of ''Supernatural''. While lasting two seasons, notice how people on websites like Website/{{Tumblr}} and this very wiki are more prone to talking about ''Supernatural'' than ''Revolution''.

* FanFavorite:
** Lets face it, Miles is the ''real'' protagonist. [[spoiler: As of the second season, he's actually receiving ''top billing''.]]
** Neville is quite popular as well.
** Nora is probably one of the most likeable characters on the show [[spoiler:before her death]].

* EightDeadlyWords: The problem with making your core protagonists into anti-heroes is that you have to be damn sure that there is enough of the ''hero'' part to balance out the ''anti-'' part of that equation. Rachel and Miles are guilty of so many crimes against humanity that certain viewers just couldn't care less if they lived or died. Charlie spending season one as TheScrappy didn't help either.

* MemeticLoser: The way the {{Hatedom}} tells it, Charlie Matheson is the biggest loser in the entire show. This is in spite of the facts that she helped get Miles Matheson back into the game, put a sniper rifle in the hands of a rebel group, and took down a number of Monroe militia members like Lieutenant Slotnick and [[spoiler: Sergeant Joseph Wheatley]].

** In "Memorial Day" the characters don't even try to hide the fact that they think Miles and Bass are practically life partners, and openly discuss the two of them with distinct undertones of "you guys should just go somewhere and kiss".

** Also, just try reading this exchange without context! [[spoiler: Several weeks after the Blackout, Miles decided to go looking for his family and Monroe decided to go with him.]]

** Also, Miles and Tom Neville seem to have something like this going on. Miles tried getting information out of Neville, and Neville responded that he's not just going to spread his legs for him and tell him everything. Perhaps Miles inspires a EvenTheGuysWantHim reaction.

Although it was a fake-out, the fact that he's not just going to spread his legs for him even Rachel addresses it shows how aware the writers are of one interpretation of the dynamic between Bass and tell him everything. Perhaps Miles inspires a EvenTheGuysWantHim reaction.Miles.]]

** The Texas government has been portrayed as an antagonist throughout Season 2, but their actions are completely justified in every case: the Monroe Republic has been hostile toward them in the past, so Miles and Bass are high priority targets (and very unlikely to be believed). The Patriots [[spoiler: until the mustard gas deployment in "Tomorrowland"]] have given Texas no firm reason to distrust them, and [[spoiler: via the FalseFlagOperation have even cleared out some troublesome groups of raiders]]. And [[spoiler: Miles, Bass, and Charlie were all present at the attempted assassination]].
