Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: Creator/BruceForsyth once appeared, appropriately enough playing a game show host (ironically, the same year his only American game, ''Series/HotStreak'', both went on the air ''and'' got cancelled, lasting 4 months).

* BlackBestFriend: T.C.--who is the [[OnlySaneMan most normal and likable of the group.]] He is also {{Badass}} enough to pull a ScaryBlackMan on occasion.

* LeaveNoWitnesses: The main reason why [[spoiler: Wendy Wright in "Distant Relative"]] and [[spoiler: Marti Jensen in "L.A."]] are murdered, as they both had witnessed a crime being committed, whether knowingly or not. Even worse, [[spoiler: Magnum was with both of them right before they were killed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: This series has more than its share of stalkers, kidnappings, hostage situations, children in danger, etc.


Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodDarkness: Episodes like "Never Again... Never Again" and "The Sixth Position" use this in nighttime scenes on Robin's Nest. Other episodes avert this for similar scenes.
* HowWeGotHere: "The Treasure of Kalaniopu'u" opens this way.
