Trivia: Revolution

  • Actor Allusion: Mark Pellegrino is killed by a third party being manipulated by a man who always wears black.
  • Fake American: David Lyons (Australian) plays Bass Monroe, Tracy Spiridakos (Charlie) is Greek-Canadian, and Colm Feore (Randall of the DoD) and Leslie Hope (Georgia Federation President Kelly Foster) are Canadian.
  • Fake Brit: Anna Lise Phillips (Australian) plays Maggie.
  • Fan Nickname: Aaron's name hasn't been stated much by episode 2, leading some to refer to him as "Google Guy". And there's "Bratniss" for Charlie.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • Role Association: Miles is Bella's dad.
    • It seems like Gus survived that explosion after all, and has decided to take an American accent.
    • There's a bit of a LOST reunion going on on this show...
      • Juliet Burke finally got off that wretched island.
      • As did Jacob, who's decided to join the Monroe militia. Alternately, Lucifer got out of Hell and decided to help the humans destroy themselves.
      • And now Frank is a rebel bookprinter!
    • Also, a pretty big 24 reunion as well with Annie Wersching, Kim Raver, Leslie Hope, Colm Feore, Joaquim de Almeida, Nestor Serrano, and Glenn Morshower as Emma, Julia, President Kelly Foster, Randall, Luis Nunez, Joseph Deckert, and Dan, respectively. Billy Burke even played another Matheson in 24
    • Young Sam Winchester is leading a child army (and still an orphan, worrying after his big brother).
    • Terry Crowley? When did you become a rebel?
  • Screwed by the Network: Many fans are crying foul, because NBC has decided to put the show on a four-month hiatus after episode 10 airs in late November 2012, and we all know how well this went for other sci-fi and/or serialized shows on network TV.
    • Averted. It was booked for a second season in April. The S2 premiere will be in September 2013, and this is apparently still happening despite the ratings slipping quite noticeably. One hopes that the syndication of this episode and its availablility on iTunes will mitigate some of that.
    • However, played straight again when the network changed the series' timeslot to Wednesday nights. Without The Voice as a lead in, the show's ratings have suffered heavily as a result.
  • Shout-Out
    • When they're both being held prisoner by Titus' clan Miles asks the sheriff why he took the job. Turns out he was inspired by his father's stories of Walker, Texas Ranger
    • The scary story Aaron tells a bunch of kids is Ghostbusters
    • In season 2, Miles takes on the alias "Stu Redman", the name of a character in The Stand. It should also be noted that one of the main villains of season 1 was named "Randall Flynn", which is suspiciously similar to a villain in that book with a known penchant for taking on aliases with the same initials as his real name, one Randall Flagg.
