** Pamela Bates in "Novel Connection", as not only does she not tell anyone why someone's trying to kill her (''[[PotHole after]]'' [[WhatAnIdiot an attempt's been made, mind you]]), she's also an absolute JerkAss to Magnum to boot.

* SocietyMarchesOn: In "Skin Deep", Magnum says that women don't shoot themselves, hence his suspicions concerning Erin Wolfe's supposed suicide. While suicides by gun among women are still uncommon, the deaths of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shauna_Grant Shauna Grant]], Creator/MaryKayBergman and others have made Magnum's words ring quite hollow today.

** Ivan calling T.C. by the "N" word in flashbacks was controversial even for the 1980s, but it certainly won't be said on U.S. network television now.

* ThrowItIn: "Don't Say Goodbye": Magnum pushing Amy Crane into the water then jumping in himself once confronted with Stewart's boat hook was ad-libbed by Tom Selleck. It wasn't part of the script, but was left in at Selleck's insistence.

** [[spoiler: Quang Ki]] is right up there too. Sure, Magnum ''did'' [[spoiler: kill his brother to save Michelle]], but in revenge, he nearly [[spoiler: fatally shoots Magnum, escapes prosecution for said shooting, and kills Michelle with a car bomb, with Lily just narrowly escaping in time. The fact that he's never punished for any of this makes him a particularly nasty KarmaHoudini as well.]]



* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Subverted. In "Blind Justice", Magnum discovers that the man on trial for murdering his wife [[spoiler: is actually innocent ([[DrivenToSuicide she had committed suicide after years of his abuse]]), but that he had also gotten away with a different murder years earlier. When confronted with this fact by Magnum, the wife's mother, while her reasons are totally sympathetic, coldly defends her cover-up of the suicide to get her son-in-law on trial. What even the episode itself doesn't touch on, however, is that the person whom the husband ''did'' murder [[FridgeHorror likely had a family themselves and who would be denied justice by the mother-in-law's actions]], though [[NoEnding the episode ends before the trial's verdict.]]]]

* TheScrappy: While intentionally written to be annoying, Cassie Yates' characters in "Kiss of the Sabre" and "Photo Play" aren't well-liked by fans.
** To a lesser extent, some fans aren't fond of Luther Gillis and Carol Baldwin for similar reasons.
