* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: No one expected much of the show when Cinemax involved, believing that it would be nothing more than an excuse plot hung on gratuitous sex and violence. Audiences were pleasantly surprised to find out that the writing and performances were top-notch and that the show featured some truly spectacular stunt work. Opinions are mixed on the copious sex scenes, however.

Added DiffLines:

** Any time the action slows down enough, the two get great dramatic moments.
* HilariousInHindsight: All three of the show's leads ended up in major roles on 2015 NBC shows. They haven't crossed over though.
** Richard Armitage played ArcVillain Francis Dolarhyde on Series/Hannibal.
** Sullivan Stapleton landed the male lead role on Series/Blindspot.
** Philip Winchester got the lead role on Series/ThePlayer.

* HoYay: Scott and Stonebridge have plenty of this trope. By ''Legacy'', they're told that they'd make a cute couple and are asked which one would wear the dress at their hypothetical wedding.

* HoYay: Scott and Stonebridge. The former even [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] a particularly choice exchange.
** Dalton also hangs a lampshade on this shortly after meeting them.
** ''Shadow Warfare'' begins with them on vacation together, [[BookEnds and ends]] with them on the road together.
*** At one point, while they're being tortured, Scott apologizes to Stonebridge - "I'm sorry Mikey. I gotta do this. All the love, you know that, right?" - before mouthing off to a druglord.

**[[spoiler: Leo Kamali]] from ''Shadow Warfare'', who proves himself to be one helluva GambitSpeedChess master, with everyone dancing to his tune (and he dancing around them), who also managed to stay as TheManBehindTheMan right until the last episode.
