Fargo

Season 2 generally

Factual error: Peggy and Ed are hiding out in a cabin "just outside of Sioux Falls," but are somehow also close to Mt. Rushmore. Mt. Rushmore is near the western border of SD, Sioux Falls on the eastern border, more than 340 miles apart.

Mistakes

Most of Season 1 takes place in January of 2006, while Season 2 takes place in March of 1979. Molly mentions near the beginning of Season 1 that she's 31, and her father confirms this in episode 10 by mentioning that she was 4 years old during the events of the Sioux Falls massacre (season 2). In season 2, Molly's mother mentioned in episodes 1 and 4 that she's 6. It's also revealed in a flashback scene in episode 10 that she graduated high school in 1991 (most people are 17 or 18 when graduating high school). If you do the math, you'll see that there's an inconsistency in her age between Seasons 1 and 2. Apparently, 2 years were added to her age in Season 2.

Trivia

In the flashback scene at the beginning of Episode 4, the young Stavros Milos finds a case of money buried in the snow, next to a fence on the road where his car runs out of gas. This is the same case that Carl Showalter buried there in the 1996 Fargo movie. It was the ransom money for Jerry Lungegard's wife. Stavros apparently used it to start his grocery business.
