* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: It's pretty obvious that Tracy Spiridakos is trying hard - perhaps a bit too hard - to inject some sort of life her character, but the writing makes her out to be a whiny, incompetent {{Jerkass}} with a penchant for getting captured and starting brawls.

* CompleteMonster: Will Strausser from season 1 is an utter [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who the Militia recruited from a room with padded cells. Strausser loves to talk about hurting others, particularly with knives. Strausser also absolutely adores torture: when Rachel falls into his hands, he spends a nice time participating in ColdBloodedTorture while sarcastically informing his victims [[FauxAffablyEvil "I apologize in advance."]] He later attempts to rape Rachel and it is insinuated he may have done so previously. When one of his soldiers fails a task, Strausser simply [[YouHaveFailedMe stabs him to death.]] Strausser freely admits the only reason he's even in the Militia is to kill with impunity and does so whenever he can.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: 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.

* ItGetsBetter: Many viewers stopped watching during the first ten episodes of season 1, as it was seeming like the overall plot was being lost in "the adventure of the week". People deciding to get caught up on the second half of season one saw the quality improve and the final few episodes did answer some questions and got to the scifi element that had been lacking.

** One of the most common criticisms of the show is how the ''post-electricity survival'' plot was abandoned almost by the end of the first episode and replaced with the magical lockets quest and Danny's rescue. A lot of this series could have worked in any other AfterTheEnd universe with only scant changes.

* 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''.

* 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]].
