Trivia: Despite the series being a critical darling and winning a number of prestigious awards, it was quietly cancelled during its third season in 2011, and network Showtime never gave a reason why the plug was pulled. Star Toni Collette has stated as recently as 2017 that she was still frustrated that the show had been cancelled, as she loved the series and the cast and thought it would have gone on at least a few more seasons.
Trivia: During season two, Kate, played by Brie Larson, portrays a fictional character named "Princess Valhalla Hawkwind" in a music video. In the video, Hawkwind wears a viking-like helmet. In the 2012 film "21 Jump Street", Molly Tracey, also played by Brie Larson, has the same helmet sitting on her desk in one scene.
Trivia: This episode features a subplot involving an earthquake hitting Japan. Tragically, a month before the episode was released in April, 2011, an earthquake and subsequent tsunami actually did hit Japan, killing over 15,000 people. Because the episode had been filmed months prior and the fact that there was not enough time to re-assemble the cast and shoot new material to replace references to the earthquake, network Showtime was forced to add a disclaimer to the episode clarifying the circumstances of the story as being a tragic coincidence.TedStixon
