In season 3, episode 12, Geillis tells Archie that a 200 year old baby is impossible, asking him not to give her "a bloody case of Benjamin Button". In fact, a short fictional story about Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald appeared in 1922, or some 180 years after the conversation. See more
The opening song changes from season to season to reflect what's happening in the story line. In the first half of Season 2 (which is set in France), part of the lyrics are in French. In the second half of Season 2 (which is mostly about preparing for war), there is a militaristic drum roll added to the opening song. During Season 3, there are tribal drums added because much of the season is set in the West Indies. In Season 4, bluegrass fiddle and banjos are added, plus some of the lyrics are sung with a Southern accent because the season is set mostly in America. See more
