Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

References The Sopranos early in Season 3 when Frank is shot, and moved into a room in the Hospital with a crazy old man. Frank hopes it's all a dream, the old man replies saying it is a dream and calls him Silvio, the character Steve played in The Sopranos.
The series was cancelled after third season due to a conflict between "NRK" (Norwegian TV channel broadcasting the show in Norway) and Netflix, where NRK published the third season on its website earlier than Netflix. This led to some contention due to the viewers having the possibility of watching the whole third season on NRK's website for free before Netflix uploaded the season.
In the very last episode, "Loose Ends", Bruce Springsteen appears together with Steven Van Zandt as Giuseppe 'Joey the Undertaker' Tagliano. The episode has its title from the Bruce Springsteen song of the same name. The two play together in The E Street Band.
