Added DiffLines:

** When we first see Magnum spy on dangerous mobster Serge Bergos in "Innocence... A Broad", Bergos' bald head and sunglasses make him bear an unfortunate resemblance to [[Series/TheLateShowWithDavidLetterman Paul Shaffer]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: Magnum during this exchange in "Skin Deep". [[SarcasmMode Try and figure out why]].
-->'''Magnum''': ...David hired me to find your lover.
-->'''Erin Wolfe''': I don't have a lover!
-->'''Magnum''': David believes you do, because of all the weekends that you disappear.
-->'''Erin Wolfe''': I was here! Alone!
-->'''Magnum''': David didn't know that. He figured wherever your lover was, that's where you'd be. That's why he hired me, to find your lover. And once I led him to your lover, then he'd kill all three of us.


Added DiffLines:

** "Tropical Madness" and "Smaller Than Life" use the word "m*dget" a lot more than would be deemed acceptable today, making Magnum's RunningGag in the former episode rather cringeworthy to hear.

Added DiffLines:

* FirstInstallmentWins: Many fans actually prefer "Limbo" to "Resolutions" as a series finale, not because of Magnum's original intended fate, but because of the bigger risks "Limbo" took in its writing and acting.

** [[RetroactiveRecognition After 1990]], this is played straight for viewers with [[spoiler: [[Creator/SharonStone "Echoes of the Mind"]], thanks to ''[[Film/TotalRecall1990 Total Recall]]'' and ''Film/BasicInstinct''.]]
** If you've seen ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' and ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', it'll be fairly obvious who the BigBad in "Deja Vu" is.

* ValuesResonance: Any time a female character is said to have an unusual lifestyle or arrangement (sexually or not), Magnum never judges them negatively on it. Considering this series literally aired in the Reagan-era [[TheEighties Eighties]], this aspect has [[SocietyMarchesOn aged quite well]].
